Property description

You'll enjoy private, 'home away from home' living at The Blue Belle on Jones Street, voted the 'Prettiest Street in Savannah' by Southern Living Magazine and one of the Top 10 Places to Visit by Conde Nast.

Our gracious, 2BR/1.5BTH private row house is nestled among moss-covered trees in the exquisite Landmark Historic District. Built circa 1875, The Blue Belle boasts two large queen bedrooms (one with fireplace) which invite you in with Tommy Bahama furnishings, soft, fine cotton linens, plenty of fluffy towels, and an ambiance that will beckon you to pen the next best-selling novel.

Perfect for one or two couples, our romantic getaway has beautiful, original wood plank flooring, four charming fireplaces, and a prestigious yet convenient location. Start your day with a cup of coffee - or tea- in the private, brick courtyard where you can soothe away your cares. Enjoy scrumptious restaurants within walking distance or prepare a gourmet meal in the fully equipped kitchen - just add the groceries!

When you're ready to explore Savannah, it couldn't be easier than starting from The Blue Belle. Our guests continually thank us for letting them stay in such a lovely and safe location. Catch a hop on/hop off sightseeing trolley at Troup Square (less than two blocks away), or walk downtown to River Street for a day of fun-filled shopping. Take a leisurely stroll to beautiful Forsyth Park. Ghost Tours, trendy boutiques, theaters, museums and local artists are all within walking distance. With parking at a premium in the Landmark Historic District, you'll truly appreciate having your own private garage.

After a busy day touring, go ahead and relax in front of your 40" Smart TV, where you can watch all of your favorite movies.

Slow down and enjoy Southern hospitality at The Blue Belle!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We fell in love with Savannah on our first visit in 1995. Over the years, visit after visit, we knew that we wanted to call this charming city our second home. So, nearly a decade later, we bought our lovely, historic rowhouse right in the heart of the Landmark Historic District on beautiful Jones Street. Having traveled around the world and stayed at many bed and breakfasts, we knew exactly the experience we wanted our guests to have - for The Blue Belle to be a true 'home away from home' with luxurious and thoughtful touches. We hope that it is! Although we spend most of our time at our jobs in West Palm Beach, FL, we are lucky enough to get up to our charming second city three or four times a year. Someday we will retire there and live out our days sitting in the courtyard, a nice glass of wine in hand, and enjoy watching the moss on the large oaks blow in the breeze.

Why the Owner Chose Savannah:
Once we made the decision to make Savannah our second home, there was never a question of where we would buy - the Landmark Historic District. Although we saw some truly beautiful Victorians at far better prices, we both wanted to live in a home where safety wasn't a concern, where our neighbors were quiet and thougthful, and a lovely square was just a block or so away. When we first began renovating, we looked out our second floor bedroom windows and saw a wedding being held at the base of the sweeping stairs of the house directly across from ours; we knew then we had picked the perfect place!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love to walk. It's no surprise that one of the things that attracted us to Savannah is its walkability. Within minutes we can be enjoying amazing chocolate chip pancakes at Clary's, browsing through the many shops on Broughton, or testing taffy down by the river. And, if we feel like a little boogie boarding, we're off to Tybee and in the water in 20 minutes. Most importantly, after a fun-filled day, we can come home to relax in a private courtyard and enjoy quiet charm of Savannah.
