Beytagh House is a beautiful Town House in Landmark Historic Downtown Savannah that was built in 1872 for Mrs. and Mr. Winnefred and Gerald Beytagh, Esquire, of England. Beytagh is 1,474 square feet of interior space plus an outdoor deck and private fenced courtyard that is easily accessible and conveniently located in the Crawford Ward at Crawford Square, one of the 22 original squares of Savannah. This gracious home offers comfort, a fully stocked kitchen and the historic beauty of original heart of pine floors, five original fireplaces, a private deck and a private fenced in courtyard. Beytagh is just a short walk away from Forsyth Park, City Market, River Street, and Broughton Street. You won't need your car to get to shopping, restaurants, arts, culture, and entertainment. Wander out the front door to beautiful Crawford Square, or relax in the private courtyard. Parking is non metered; free! (Crawford Square was designed in 1841 and named in honor of William Harrison Crawford, Minister of France during the reign of Napoleon. Crawford was said to be the only foreign politician with any influence over Napoleon.) (Just a 'short' comment.)
There are two upstairs bedrooms each with a queen bed, one full bath with a walk-in shower on the first floor and another full bath on the second floor with a walk in shower and original claw-foot enamel bath tub. There is a formal living room, formal dining room, kitchen and laundry on the first floor along with a comfy TV den (high speed WiFi, 130 satellite channels, HD flat-screen TV). Central air with ceiling fans in each room, and 100 year old Oaks out front which add even more ambiance to the architecture.
Beytagh is, on a pet by pet basis (less than 30 pounds and well behaved and non-destructive) pet friendly so that you may bring your best friend on your perfect vacation. The enclosed courtyard is perfect for them to enjoy, as well as having Crawford Square nearby. Our community is very dog friendly; many restaurants have outside dining and allow you to dine with your pup. (Pets must be on a Veterinarian prescribed flea regiment.) Please note that pets must be PRE approved, and that any pet "sneaked" onto the property shall result in immediate eviction without refund!

The best way to enjoy the charm, charisma, and character of Savannah is on foot. Beytagh offers the start of the beat in your feet as you take in the land of live oaks, hanging moss, magnolia trees, night-scented jasmine, and the constant eye candy that is the architecture of the buildings in this most historic part of Savannah. The 22 squares are laid out on a grid pattern and provide the setting for gorgeous historic homes and businesses. The squares provide islands of tranquility, shade and beauty in the city, which, because of the short distances, and level tree-lined streets between them, make it a walker's paradise. And, Beytagh's courtyard is a welcome retreat at the end of a busy day.

If you step to Crawford Square mid morning and/or early evening you will hear before seeing the clomping of hooves of the horse drawn carriages as they round Crawford Square without tourists, just the driver and the horse, as they are berthed nearby. Also from the front porch of Beytagh one can hear and see them heading to and fro City Market. After spending an active day out and about treat yourself to an inexpensive bicycle taxi ride home; much like the 'Tututs' in Hong Kong only without the mopeds' harmful gas fumes!...moreless

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Having lived and taught both Music and Art in Heidelberg and Munich Germany for eighteen years before moving to the Savannah area 11 years ago, I was spoiled with European city customs. I've lived in the 'country' in the suburbs for the past 11 years missing that Euro feel. I would experience it every time I set foot in the Historic District of Savannah; it somehow felt like home.
Why the Owner Chose Historic District - North, Savannah, GA, USA:
After many years of searching for a home that has the historic element not modernized or updated totally out of it, I found Beytagh and knew the second I entered it that 'this was it'! Original heart of pine floors with 141 years of wear, not refinished, not made to look 'new' again (the beauty of a true patina that only age can create) plus located at one of the original remaining 22 squares with 100 year old oaks dripping with Spanish moss out front and minutes by foot to anything and everything that Savannah has to offer, along with the much sought after charm of the many original architectural touches had me 'charisma-seized'.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Parking. Ah yes, the infamous issue of Savannah Downtown and Historic District P-A-R-K-I-N-G! People running about begging to buy quarters, pleading with parking ticket issuers, buying gum to break a twenty to get change for the meters, or running about to the auto pay machines with a two or three hour limit. Now, I simply find it all amusing as the street beside my house has no meters. Relax. Take that extra stroll around yet another beautiful square enjoying the architecture that, unlike Atlanta which was burned to the ground, still lives in Historic Savannah Beauty because someone had a cunning ken and gave Sherman the keys to the city as a gift for Lincoln during the Civil War, lest none of this would exist for our enjoyment today. That 'First Historic Preservationist' deserves much credit from us all. Regretfully, Gerald Beytagh died in 1876 leaving behind Winnefred (with an 'E') to live her days alone in this home that I now call Beytagh House in his honor. I am told that he and she rest in Bonaventure Cemetery, though I am yet to make that research personally.
