Property description

Built in 1905, the little yellow townhouse by Whitefield Square features original heart pine floors, 12' ceilings, 4 fireplaces, and an abundance of natural light.

A sweet back porch and private, well-shaded backyard make a serene backdrop for morning coffee or evening wine and conversation.

Situated in a residential section of Savannah's beautiful historic district, Townhouse 428 is within easy walking distance of popular destinations like River Street and City Market. Antique shops, museums, boutiques, and restaurants, including Clary's Cafe - made famous/infamous in 'Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil' - are all just a few minutes walk from the house.

While you can enjoy Savannah on foot from this great location, there is also easy parking options across the street, as well as a free shuttle service that stops nearby.

In addition to its original charming detail, the townhouse offers two airy upstairs bedrooms, a well equipped kitchen, 1 1/2 bathrooms, a dining room, and a comfortable living room with cable and wifi. Each bedroom hosts a queen size bed; additionally, there is a pull out sofa and inflatable matress for extra guests. The house comfortably sleeps 4-6 guests, with extra options for children.

Tastefully furnished, the house is uncluttered and family-friendly, with a closetful of kid gear, including baby gates, a crib, strollers, and a high chair - even a baby monitor.

Everything you need for an exciting day and relaxing evening are here!

Come stay at Townhouse 428, and live like a local.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We are a family of four; the girls are 5 years old and 7 years old. They love Savannah as much as we do, and have been vacationing here since they were born.

Why the Owner Chose Savannah:
We lived in this house when we were working in Savannah and Hilton Head. Our work took us elsewhere, and we have kept the home because we love spending time here.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Tall ceilings, the warm glow of heart pine floors and tastefully restrained furnishings create a peaceful, relaxing atmosphere and make it a pleasure to spend time here. For free entertainment, just step outside and tour the historic district. We're a short walk from just about everything including numerous restaurants; an ice cream parlor; a historic theater that hosts movies, plays and musical performances; Forsyth Park with its iconic fountain and a children's playground; book stores; grocery stores; bars and antiques.
