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.

Clean, welcoming, super convenient location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were pleasantly surprised by this condo. Check in was seamless, residence was clean and welcoming, conveniently located for walking or drive and park touring. The Kroger store next door is a lifesaver. We highly recommend this rental.

Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

This property is wonderfully located about 5 minutes from the Historic District of Savannah. Never having been to Savannah before and coming to attend a family wedding was stressful. The owner was extremely easy to work with. She responded quickly to the initial rental request and to the few other questions I had prior to our stay. The property was exactly as described. One could easily have prepared meals in the well appointed kitchen. It even had a full sized washer and dryer. It is within walking distance of a clean, well stocked Kroger grocery store. I highly recommend this owner and this property.

A beautiful and convenient location

  • 5 of 5

This well appointed condo was perfect for our group of 5. With plenty of parking and easy walking distance to Forsythe Park and the riverfront, it couldn't have worked out better.

Excellent Location, Amenities and Convenience.

  • 5 of 5

We booked both of Mary's units just from pictures and descriptions on VRBO - almost one year in advance. It all worked out beautifully for us and family of all ages visiting from out of state for my son's destination wedding. The bedrooms and bathrooms are generously sized, Loved the jetted tub in the master. Washer and dryer came in handy after a trip to Tybee Island. Long term tenants were friendly. And as mentioned, Kroger was very handy for all the basics as well as flowers for the rehearsal dinner! One detail we would pay closer attention to - parking is great, especially compared to other areas of historic Savannah, however, read the posted signs for street sweeping times to avoid ticket. One of our guests moved their car just in time!

Convenient, quiet, accommodating!

  • 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 of both worlds..,plus, Uber-ing was just minutes away from our desired locations; very cost-effective...another win-win!
