About Mary Pizzimenti

My husband and I enjoy spending time in Savannah as we love the southern hospitality, friendliness of the residents and beauty of the city.

Mary Pizzimenti purchased this condo in 2006

Why Mary Pizzimenti chose Savannah

We love Savannah and all of its history and charm. The genuine friendliness of the residents and visitors is second to none. It has great restaurants, entertainment, shopping, nearby beaches and countless other activities. With some 200 city-wide festivals and events each year there is always something to do and someplace to go.

What makes this condo unique

Place yourself in Savannah's rich history. This property was completely renovated to help preserver the historic charm and significance that keeps Savannah a unique and beautiful city. The exterior maintains the period correct architecture while the interior has all the modern conveniences and comforts.

The original structure has been described as Vernacular Neoclassical Revival, local interpretation of a combination of Georgian Revival and Edwardian architecture. With its pediment porches and two-story porticos supported by round columns, the building has been formally identified as being of 'significant value as a Classical Revival apartment house'.

Originally set aside as 'Garden Lots' in General Oglethorpe's original town plan of Savannah, the land would become known as the Beach Institute Neighborhood. Early records find that in 1782 the land, named Fairlawn Plantation, was a working rice plantation. In 1853 with the advent of the Savannah & Albany Railroad, construction of Savannah's East Side began in earnest. Workers for the railroad were in need of housing and developers capitalized on that need by developing land tracts slated for building lots.

Of interest, is that a single African American woman, Mary Ellen Richardson, wholly developed the property. She owned the property from 1868 until her death in 1929. Somewhere between 1898 and 1916 the original structure was replaced with the building that stands to this day.

Mary Richardson's also built the Carpenter Italianate row house as well as a single-family dwelling in the same area.

Fabulous Savannah vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed staying in this rental. We were a party of 5 adults and 2 kids (ages 2 and 5) and everyone enjoyed the spacious amenities. The location is very convenient to all the sights in Savannah, and it was located in a quiet, residential neighborhood. The directions were very clear for check-in and check-out procedures, and Mary was quick and responsive to all our email inquiries. We enjoyed our mini-vacation in Savannah and would definitely stay here again!

comfortable place and convenient location

  • 4 of 5

The beds & living room furniture were comfortable. The kitchen was better equipped than we expected (could use wine glasses & that is my only suggestion). Convenient location to walk to the grocery store & to take the DOT to tourist areas. Easy walk to Forsyth Park & surrounding area. There were 3 of us for a family Christmas so being able to combine family time with sightseeing in Savannah was great. We would recommend the Cuban Restaurant if you're looking for a different meal. And the Old Pink House was great for our special Christmas Eve dinner.

Everything about this place was AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay while visiting Savannah for the weekend. We had 11 girls, so we rented both condos and they were awesome! Such nice places, very clean, plenty of room, and in a convenient location. Free parking, walking distance to the grocery store, and a short walk or $5 to $7 Uber ride to the river. Plenty of room in the kitchen for cooking and a lovely living/dining room area to gather for a chat. Forsyth Park is just down the street and is beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return! Mary was always quick to reply to any questions I had before we arrived. I definitely recommend staying here if you're planning a trip Savannah...you won't regret it!!

Just what we'd hope it would be...

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect location for our family union. We rented two of Mary's units, one upstairs and the other down. She is very enthusiastic and very knowledgeable of a variety of places to visit & see in Savannah. Both kitchens were well stocked with a variety of pots & pans, which we greatly appreciated...and Kroger is less than a five minute walk. Parking was never a hassle, as we were there for a holiday weekend. It was quiet, yet close to everything..best of both worlds..,plus, Uber-ing was just minutes away from our desired locations; very cost-effective...another win-win!

Beautiful and immaculate.

  • 5 of 5

I think it has recently been remodeled so everything was fresh and clean...yet it still maintained its charm. It was the perfect fit for 5 sisters. You can walk to grocery, restaurants, and free bus service...or you can use uber. I highly recommend this property.
