Savannah townhome description

This 1880 Savannah townhouse, within view of Forsyth Park's fountain, has been totally refurbished and is now available for truly discriminating travelers.

As the pictures demonstrate the home is decorated in period antiques and reproduction furniture. Antique bed frames, chests, armoires, and accessory pieces are used to set the mood of historic Savannah. Heart pine floors are throughout.

Inside find a beautiful living room and separate dining room, each with its own fireplace separated by a set of original pocket doors. A powder room and new kitchen are also on the first floor.

Walk through the French doors of this totally modernized kitchen and find yourself on a recently constructed back porch which overlooks beautiful private bricked courtyard. The porch and courtyard have table seating for eight. There is a gas grill if needed.

Upstairs are three bedrooms, two with full baths. The middle bedroom has private access to the rear bath. Six adults can comfortably be accommodated. A crib is available.

Our townhouse is located one block from Forsyth Park. Looking left out the front door you will see the Fountain in Forsyth Park. With that said, ALL within the Historic District is WALKABLE from our location. Just park your car on our NON-METERED street and enjoy your walk. The River is but a 15 minute walk away.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2008

          About the owner: My wife and I were led to Savannah by our son who received a Masters Degree in Architecture at SCAD. Nearing retirement we both decided Savannah was the ideal place to spend our retirement lives. We have much to do, many cultural events and wonderful people to be with.

          Why the Owner Chose Savannah:
          Our townhouse when purchased was in dire need of a going over. It has turned out to be a beautifully restored home with all our personal needs and touches met. The location is perfect. We can walk everywhere within the district and still have the peace of a residential area. Likewise, parking is a non-issue.

          The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
          Other then ALL of the Historic District being within an easy walk from our home, we can enjoy the concerts and events at Forsyth Park, walk to dinner or the coffee shop, shows and museums. We can spend a morning on River Walk or take a 15 mile ride to Tybee Beach. Hilton Head or Beaufort are short rides away.
