Property description

The Savannah Lark - a charming Federalist style two story brick townhouse built in 1854, recently updated and tastefully decorated in antiques and reproduction furniture to help provide the full Savannah experience. The location is ideal - in the Downtown Landmark Historic District between Liberty St. and Oglethorpe Ave., just east of the Colonial Park Cemetery. The townhouse is exactly midway between River Street and Forsyth Park and thus an easy walk to all of Downtown Savannah's attractions.

The Savannah Lark provides two bedrooms, one and a half baths, open living, dining and kitchen areas, and a private, landscaped courtyard for you to enjoy when not out exploring the beautiful city around you. Upstairs the master bedroom has a queen bed and lots of closet space. The other bedroom has matching twin beds and a fireplace. A large bathroom with tub and shower is located between the two and a supplemental half bath is downstairs. An additional twin mattress is available for a fifth companion.

Parking on the street is unmetered and readily available on the adjoining cross street. You will not need an auto for exploring the nearby sights of Savannah or accessing restaurants. The neighborhood is quiet, friendly, safe and feels residential but located in close proximity to the attractions and nightlife of historic Savannah.

Note that this is a self contained end unit brick town house with the original 1854 floor plan and is within the original, over one foot thick masonry walls - not an apartment or condo carved out of an existing home or an old commercial building converted into multiple unit spaces. It is quite private and you do not feel like you are intruding or sharing others living space and their noises. The attached rear courtyard is walled and has a gate with side street access and the space is for your use only, not shared outdoor space as in many other rental units.

For your easy reference, I use and keep updated the VRBO calendar. Check it out for availability of dates.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Love old houses and have worked on many of them over the years. My hobby has become my real vocation since taking early retirement from my corporate job. Real estate has been a passion since buying my first house (built in 1920) when I was 25 and receiving a real learning experience. Own three other rental houses currently.

Why the Owner Chose Savannah:
I was smitten with Savannah when I came for St. Patrick's Day four years ago, Came back several times and wanted to experience the city more completely, so started looking for a place to buy. This townhouse provided a private, comfortable feeling and was in a very convenient neighborhood to everything Downtown had to offer.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
The Savannah Lark is a pre Civil War brick Townhouse in a pleasant residential neighborhood that is just a short walk away from the more bustling neighborhoods of downtown. I have enjoyed my time while staying here and working on the updating and then the furnishing and decoration. A lot of effort has been put into enhancing the 19th Century charm while incorporating modern conveniences. Many Antique Malls were searched to secure appropriate American Empire and Duncan Phyfe style furniture and other suitable decorative art and pictures.
