Beautiful Home in the Heart of Historic District, Best Location, Beautifully Furnished, Open Floor Plan, Free Wi-Fi, 4 Flat-Screen Cable TVs, Private Courtyard with Refrigerator and Built-In Grill, Private Garage Parking, Great View of Riverstreet Fireworks, Featured in 2010 Tour of Homes, Steps from Shopping, Restaurants and Events -- River St., Trustees Garden, Broughton St, The Pink House, Pacci and the Brice Hotel.
Welcome to beautiful downtown Savannah and the LowCountry! Built in 1842, this home sits proudly between Warren and Washington squares and is just a stone’s throw from River Street and some of the best restaurants in downtown Savannah.
Spacious and light-filled, with an open-floor plan and beautiful furnishings, it's no surprise that one recent guest said 'Fabulous House -- Other family members rented other houses near Washington Sq. but ours was the best- decor, layout, kitchen, grill and patio.' Another raved 'Outstanding in Every Way,' while others commented, 'Went Above and Beyond Expectations,' and 'The nicest property I have ever stayed in!'
Upon entering the foyer of the home, you’ll notice the original heart of pine floors covered in a modern high-gloss finish. A comfortable antique couch awaits you to sit down and relax your feet after a day of touring and shopping. Step into the living room and relax on the super plush Shabby Chic couch as you gaze at the beautiful Savannah views. Dine with your family and friends in our beautiful dining room featuring a fireplace, gorgeous crystal chandelier, and a beautiful dining table.
All of this opens onto a modern kitchen with stainless appliances and granite and butcher block counters. Entertaining? Everything you need for making a fabulous meal is at the ready, pots and pans, Cuisinart, roasting pan, it’s all there. Prefer not to cook? So many amazing restaurants are a stone's throw away!
The private back courtyard, featuring a built-in grill and refrigerator, awaits your inner Bobby Flay. The perfect spot for visiting with friends and family, dining alfresco, or just relaxing as you listen to the gentle clip-clop of the horse-drawn carriages that regularly saunter by.
Back inside a marble half bath is under the staircase, and next-door is a Bosch washer and dryer.
Heading upstairs, take note of the wave pattern on the staircase, this was one of many original features of the home that we fell in love with. It is a common architectural detail seen in many homes in this particular area of Savannah, which was first inhabited by ships' captains and successful seagoing merchants. Down the block from Washington Square you’ll find the Pirate's House, a popular restaurant for visitors (kids love it by the way), but with an infamous history of carousing and tall tales from oceangoing sailors.
Upstairs you’ll find the master bedroom featuring a gas log fireplace, beautiful four-poster Ralph Lauren bed and a flat-screen TV. A custom closet also awaits your unpacking.
Beside the master is a spacious bedroom/family room. This room features another fireplace, 40” flat-screen TV, large custom closet. This room contains a brand-new Super Lux queen sleeper sofa from Mitchell Gold. There's also a spacious desk if any work needs attending to during your stay!
This floor also features a beautiful marble bathroom.
Moving further up, our top floor features two guest rooms, each with two twin beds, linens, and 22” flat-screen TVs.
The yellow room we have named our Jack Leigh room, in memory of Savannah’s famed photographer. You’ll find three original Jack Leigh prints accessorizing this retreat and several books featuring his work. Offering a beautiful evening view of Savannah at night and the twinkling Talmadge Bridge in the distance, this room is one of our favorites.
Next door, the pink and green room channels fun and Florida with bedding from ABC Carpet and Home. This room offers fabulous viewing of the Riverstreet fireworks, which in Savannah, seem to happen quite often, as there’s always something to celebrate.
The third floor bath features a marble shower and new plush towels.
Craving a day at the beach? Tybee Island with its beautiful sand, ocean and eclectic restaurants and shops is only a 20-minute drive from downtown Savannah.
Walking distance to everything, the house is located steps from River Street, Broughton Street, shopping, dining and Savannah’s famed Washington Square. This square is near the site of the old Trustees Garden, and was named for George Washington. For many years, until the mid-twentieth century, this square was the scene of the biggest New Year's Eve bonfires, many often taller than the houses around the square. The Seaman's House, operated by the Port Society to serve the needs of visiting seaman, is on the southwest side of the square. The Mulberry Inn, also on this square, was originally a cotton warehouse, built in the 1860s, then a Coca-Cola bottling plant before being converted to an inn. Given its fascinating history and its beautiful surroundings, it’s not surprising that on any given Saturday evening, you’re sure to see a beautiful wedding taking place.
So head down South to 504 ESJ, we’re sure you will enjoy your stay!

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: Welcome to our home! As a native of Hilton Head Island, SC and Savannah, GA, purchasing a vacation home in the heart of Savannah's historic district was a natural decision for us. Pictured above are our two beautiful daughters posing at the front entrance of 504 ESJ. After our daughters were born, we decided it would be nice to have a home of our own in Savannah. So, in 2008, we purchased 504 ESJ. Several renovations, wallpaper and paint jobs later, it's now truly a relaxing escape and a wonderful vacation home. We live in the NY area and enjoy traveling to Savannah when it's still cold in NY, but gorgeous and warm in Savannah! We've created a wonderful and inviting vacation home and are excited to share it with you!
Why the Owner Chose Historic District - North, Savannah, GA, USA:
Savannah is a jumping point for not only the historic beauty that's within a short walk of anywhere downtown, but also for all that the lowcountry has to offer. With the beautiful beaches of Tybee Island only 20 minutes away, a 20 minute drive to Bluffton and about 45 minutes to all that Hilton Head has to offer, there's always an option for something to do! We'll often take a day trip to Tybee for a day in the sun and sand or head over to HHI for lunch at the Salty Dog. Then we can come home to the convenience of downtown living with the many restaurants and lively nightlife to choose from.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our house is located right between Washington and Warren Squares. Riverstreet and Broughton St. with the shopping and restaurants that both have to offer are literally around the corner. The neighborhood is truly one of the best locations in downtown Savannah. We also enjoy our courtyard for outdoor dining and enjoying beautiful Savannah! This home would be perfect for family vacations, girls weekends, wedding accommodations, graduations, you name it!
