Savannah townhome description

This 1853 home located on Chatham Square is the epitome of pre-war Southern charm. This home can serve as a special vacation spot for up to four Lucky guests, or a secluded hideaway for part of a larger party staying at our Canterbury Main House. The Garden Apartment has one bedroom and one full bath.

The bedroom has a recently updated bath, and a queen-size cast iron bed among its tasteful mix of antique furnishings. The living room has cable TV, wireless Internet and a full-size sleeper sofa. You’ll find Old Savannah Brick pavers out back leading to the large shared courtyard, with charming masonry detailing and lush landscaping, where you can enjoy your morning coffee, or put the grill to use and stoke up some barbeque.

Can come and go with ease thanks to the private off-street parking spot and the home’s convenient location in the center of the Historic District. Take a short stroll over to Forsyth Park, or down to the shops and restaurants of Broughton Street. Join the locals for lunch at the renowned Mrs. Wilkes Restaurant, the local treasure featuring communal dining tables, that was recently visited by President Obama.

This truly special vacation property is the ideal spot for a couple’s getaway or an intimate gathering for friends to enjoy the unique Savannah atmosphere in their own delightful English cottage style home.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1994

                  About the owner: Both recently retired from the Airline industry, we are fortunate to now call Savannah our full-time home. We enjoy traveling, antiquing, golfing, gardening, and all the other things retired people do.

                  Why the Owner Chose Savannah:
                  My first experience in Downtown Savannah was the home my Grandmother owned when I moved here at the age of 13. I quickly fell in love with her home, and the National Historic District surrounding it. We were fortunate to inherit that home later in life, only to have it destroyed due to fire 10 days after taking ownership. We purchased this home to allow us to still stay connected to downtown after the unexpected loss of my Grandmother's house. We have enjoyed giving it the same love and care as if it had been in our family for generations. We only recently transitioned to a Vacation Rental property, with the idea that guests may stay in our home for their first trip to Historic Savannah, maybe falling in love with it as I did in my first visit to my Grandmother's house long ago.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                  Secure, off-street parking for the property, lunch at Mrs. Wilkes (without waiting in line), a level of service that surpasses hotel concierges, 3rd party Vacation Property Managers, etc....an extremely large shared courtyard, home overlooks one of only 22 squares in downtown Savannah.
