About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 4-6) Beautifully Renovated Historic Home

A beautifully renovated townhouse in Historic Downtown Savannah! This property has been completely updated with beautiful high end finishes for your comfort and enjoyment. The owners have successfully preserved historic features throughout such as mantles and molding that are especially ornate and memorable. Sit on the front porch and wave to the tour Trolleys or cozy up on the private back porch with a good book.

This home has luxurious King beds in both bedrooms! Each has its own television and French doors leading to the cozy back porch with comfy reading chairs which are dedicated to this listing exclusively.

The full bathroom is conveniently located between the bedrooms and the spacious half bath is across the hallway, also convenient for all members of your party.

There is a pullout sofa in the living room allowing the home to sleep 6 adults.

The living room, dining and kitchen are one large open area. This is a great setup for socializing! The gorgeous high end outdoor space is the crowning jewel of this property. Enjoy a working outdoor wood burning fireplace during the 9 or so months out of the year when Savannah can surprise you with a cold evening.

A popular wedding/event venue 'Brockington Hall' is 1.5 blocks from this home. The surrounding amenities include a major well stocked grocery store (1 block away), a luxury day spa (3 blocks away), tennis courts (at Forsyth), a gourmet health food store (at the South end of Forsyth) and many fabulous restaurants (700 Drayton, Leoci's Trattoria, Local 11Ten) within a few blocks of the home.

This unit is all on one level. There are some stairs from the sidewalk to the main entrance but no interior staircase is present.

The courtyard (separated by stairs from the private porch) with more patio seating and a working outdoor fireplace is shared with the 1BR/1BA carriage house which is listing #475721 on VRBO.

About Mary Anderson

My name is Mary and I am the reservation manager for this amazing property. The owners renovated it lovingly and take amazing care of it. I am thrilled to offer it to my guests! While this listing is new and may not have a review history, please 'view my other listings' and also my website for a long history of good reviews on my properties and my service as a reservation manager. I'm also a licensed real estate agent in the state of Georgia.

Mary Anderson purchased this house in 1996

Why Mary Anderson chose Historic District - South

Historic Downtown Savannah is a place where people get enchanted and fall head over heels in love. With the city itself and with their loved ones too. This house is a great representation of why Savannah has an appeal that has made it the destination of over a million tourists annually.

What makes this house unique

Most vacation guests want to buy groceries and spend some time 'at home'. This location will ensure you can do that with the greatest of ease while also being a stone's throw from every tourist destination on your list. Walkers and runners as well as cyclists will also love their proximity to Forsyth Park. Families with children will be pleased with the lovely playgrounds nearby. While all of Savannah boasts beautiful houses, there are just a few 'Belgium Stone' or 'Belgium Block' homes like this one that convey a sense of grandeur and solidity. There truly is nothing like a well built historic home that has been carefully renovated to add modern day comforts!

The spirit of Savannah

  • 4 of 5

We stayed right in the heart of downtown Savannah’s historical district. The porches were perfect. The beds super comfy and everything was very clean. Loved our stay

very convenient for walking to most sites

  • 4 of 5

Our property manager was very prompt when we needed some things the cleaning person forgot. A lovely quiet neighborhood with a lovely bakery on the corner, and grocer around the corner, and beautiful Forsyth Park for the farmer's market, and a great health food market.

The home was a bit dark for my taste with limited window exterior viewing, but this is something I'm very used to at home. Shouldn't be a deterrent if you are always out and about exploring all the history this city has to offer.

Lovely lower level home in Savannah’s Historic District

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely lower level half of a home in Savannah’s Historic District. True to the description it has a large porch with very nice seating and a swing. While we were there in early October, the temperatures were in the upper 80s to low 90s with extremely high humidity so sitting on the porch was not desirable. The back courtyard was also very nice but again, the heat and humidity kept us inside. The home is very clean and the kitchen is equipped with dishes, cooking utensils, and what you would need for simple meals. Within about 2 short blocks is a Kroger’s super market and within half a block is a very nice bakery/coffee shop. We used the space as our base while we were vacationing and touring Historic Savannah. The street does not require parking vouchers but do be aware of the street sweeping schedule as posted. On our day of arrival we had been up since 4:00 am to catch our first flight of the day and somehow missed the sign about the sweeping that night...we had a $25 fine to pay for that mistake. Anyone renting this property should be aware the very nice owners do have small children who can be heard running around on the upper level from about 8:00 am until about 7:30 to 8:00 pm with occasional thumps, bumps and bangs. They are just doing normal toddler activities, however is you are considering renting this space, you should be aware.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Historic Savannah and and found being in a convenient neighborhood preferable to a hotel. We did most of the usual tourist type of tours as well as walking about on our own. The Bonaventure Cemetery tour was excellent and not to be missed.

Front porch, side porch, back courtyard! Took my breath away. Beds are super comfortable kings.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this place. Location is perfect. You can walk to the "kool" Krogers (as described by a local) and just 5 min to Forsyth. Go south and eat at the Vault. I loved living here for 10 days!

Comfortable, clean, and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the weekend at this beautiful spacious apartment this past weekend with our two teenage girls and had a wonderful time. Bedrooms were much larger than expected and the beds were incredibly comfortable. Both rooms led out to a nice quiet porch on private side of home. Kitchen has all your necessities and more. The location was perfect! Grocery store was a few blocks away and a wonderful bakery and coffee cafe steps away. Downtown shopping, restaurants, and river were about 20 minute walk away or 5 minute car ride. Some of the parks were within a 5-10 minute walk. Will certainly stay here again if we are able to revisit Savannah.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here! It was very spacious and the beds were very comfortable. Nicely furnished with a well stocked kitchen. Parking was very easy. We always found a space in front of the house. The coffee shop on the corner was a nice bonus!
