Property description

Welcome to Forsyth on the Green!

This is a tastefully furnished 3 bedroom ~1400 square feet condo overlooking the east side of Forsyth Park, Savannah's 30+ acre version of New York's Central Park. Forsyth Park is the largest green space in historic Savannah and contains walking paths, a café, a children's play area, a Fragrant Garden for the blind, a large and stunning fountain, tennis courts, basketball courts, areas for soccer and Frisbee, and home field for Savannah Shamrocks Rugby Club. From time to time, concerts are held in Forsyth Park to the benefit of the public.

The condo is also conveniently located one block south of the Mansion, a luxury hotel with fine restaurant, cooking school and bar.

River Street is roughly a mile away. This can be best enjoyed via a lovely scenic stroll through historic Savannah. Faster transportation is also available via the DOT express shuttle, Savannah’s fare-free Downtown Transportation system. There is a pick-up point located roughly two blocks from the condo.

Browse fresh local produce on Saturday mornings at the Forsyth Park Farmer's Market. Stroll to the Sentient Bean for a fresh cup of coffee, light dining and local entertainment. Or stroll north a block and treat yourself to a wonderful dining experience at 700 Drayton. Sip on a glass of wine and enjoy a Forsyth Park concert from the privacy of your 3rd floor balcony. Watch the lights of hundreds of bicyclists as they pass on their Midnight Garden Ride. Stroll thru Forsyth Park, by the fountain and then head north on Bull Street to take in the lifeblood of Savannah's historic district. Take in the amazing chalk art during SCAD's annual sidewalk arts festival.

The main room has a 42' high definition flat screen TV with a Blu-Ray player, cable TV with premium channels and streaming wireless capabilities. A Harmon Karden receiver with bookshelf speakders provide plenty of room filling sound. An auxilliary input cable for MP3 players is provided. High speed wireless is available throughout the condo. The dining room table can be expanded to twice the width, leaving lots of room for guests. The sofa folds out into a queen-size bed. Plenty of comfortable seating in the main living space.

The front bedroom has a queen size bed with two windows overlooking Forsyth Park. Matching night stands and chest of drawers complete the room. The middle bedroom features exquisite crotch mahogony antique furniture (double bed, chest of drawers, vanity with mirror, bookstand). The room also has a reach-in closet. The rear bedroom is furnished in a more contemporary fashion with a queen bed.

Overhead ceiling fans with lighting in each bedroom and main room.

The front bath includes a vanity, bath/shower and toilet. The rear bath has a vanity, corner shower unit and toilet. Both bathrooms are equipped with hair dryers.

The kitchen includes a dishwasher, range top, microwave, oven , refrigirator, reverse osmosis water filtration and garbage disposal. Cooking utensils, coffee grinder and maker, pots, pans, spices, glasses, etc are fully stocked. A rear covered porch with Weber grill, ceiling fan and chairs is directly out the back door by the kitchen.

Original artwork is hung throughout the apartment.

The fireplaces are decorative only and not intended for use.

Smoking is permitted on either front or back covered porch.

Small pets (under 15 lbs) are okay with prior approval from owner. A non-refundable nightly pet fee will be required.

The building was constructed in 1905 and consists of three units, one unit per floor. The rental property consists of the entire third floor. Access is provided via front interior and rear exterior common area stairs. Due to the lack of an elevator, the property is not suitable for mobility impaired guests.

The property is zoned as a multi-family residential area and subject to City of Savannah ordinances which are STRICTLY enforced. Our #1 concern is the prevention of excessive noise and disruptive behavior that adversely affects neighboring properties and residents. For this reason, we no longer allow parties and similar events.

We cater to guests who are looking for a quiet and peaceful setting in an ideal location. We seek to establish long-term relationships with our guests and earn your repeat business and share our love for the wonderful Savannah experience.

From about 1866 to 1872, women of the former Confederate states formed memorial associations in order to take responsibility for the decent and permanent interment of slain Confederate soldiers in cemeteries, where possible, and institutionalized annual memorial services, which consisted of decorating the graves with flowers....moreless

Come create or view chalk art masterpieces on the sidewalks of Forsyth Park during SCAD's annual Sidewalk Arts Festival. The popular event, free and open to the public, features a chalk art competition, children's drawing areas for young artists, and food, drinks and music.

Forsyth Park is a 30 acre green space located in downtown Savannah. It was originally created in the 1840s on 10 acres of land donated by William Hodgson. In 1851, the park was expanded and named for Georgia Governor John Forsyth. By 1853, all original planned wards of Savannah were occupied and a large public park was added to the extreme south end of the city plan. This park was anticipated by General James Oglethorpe's plan and was made possible by a donation of 20 acres of land owned by Forsyth.

The fountain at the north end of Forsyth Park was added in 1858 and is reminiscent of fountains in the Place de la Concorde in Paris and in Cuzco, Peru. At this time, Parisian urban planning was centered on the development of residential neighborhoods radiating out from a central green space. The Parisian model of developing large city parks was emulated by large cities in the United States, with even smaller cities, such as Savannah, asserting their own cosmopolitan image.

Every St.Patricks Day the fountain is ceremoniously turned green in celebration of the Savannah's deep Irish heritage.
