'SAVANNAH NAMED ONE OF THE TOP CITIES BY CONDE NAST TRAVELER'S READERS EIGHT YEARS IN A ROW!'
A lot of love and attention has gone into creating this perfect get away for our visitors that want to live among the locals and experience Historic Home Living in Savannah, but feel the comfort and confidence of having owners on the property that know the nuances of the area and residence and are dedicated to keeping it in pristine condition for its guest. We're available to make sure your stay is exceptional.
This enchanting spot is one block from Forsyth Park, and a few blocks from Forsyth Mansion. It's perfect for any venue in town and you can park your car in our off street parking lot and walk to any location in the Victorian or Historic District.
This second floor apartment is furnished with Family Antiques that have been chosen with exceptional discrimination over the past 30 years and were originally housed in a property that was located on a street named 'Bancroft Rd', hence we named this apartment for the location where the furnishings resided for many years. Much of the art is original and has been presented in shows in the U.S. and Abroad.
Our property, built in 1886 is embellished with 12 ft ceilings, original heart pine floors and Victorian architectural details at every turn. It provides 3 Bedrooms, a Living Room/Dining Area, Eat in Kitchen, Porch, Two Baths, and a separate Den with Sleeper Sofa. There is a 500 Square Foot Court Yard, and Off street parking for three cars as well.
You can walk anywhere downtown; we do every weekend. From the Restaurants on the squares, to the fireworks on River St, to a must-have ice cream cone from Famous Leopold's Ice Cream on Broughton Street, the city is literally on your doorstep.
You'll be drawn to the Infamous Fountain in Forsyth Park, steps away from the apartment. Right around the corner is the best coffee house in town, the City's beloved Sentient Bean, and Historic Brighter Day, known for their freshly made organic deli and smoothies. There's nothing you can't find there when it comes to healthy eating. And you might see somebody famous at 'Local 11Ten', which is practically our next door neighbor. From their rooftop lounge to their high quality ingredients and unique preparation, it's one of Savannah's most talked about trendy restaurants.
The maximum occupancy for overnight guest is 7.
The Living Room has a Full Size Couch, Two Armchairs, a Dining Table that seats 4-10 (2 Leaves available), 4 Dining Room Chairs and a Leather Top Executive Desk with Leather Chair, Antique Cabinet and 28 Inch Flat Screen TV. French Glass Doors lead to the porch with a feeling of being coddled in the trees and a view of the other Victorian Style homes on the Street.
The Porch is draped on the front side in white, and provides wrought iron furniture thickly cushioned for lounging.
The Master Bedroom has a Queen Size Mattress, Bureau, Seating area, Small Desk and a 28 inch TV. The Master Bath has a Pedestal Sink and tub/shower.
The Yellow Bedroom (called this as the furniture is antique yellow) has a Queen Size Mattress, Bureau, nightstand and vanity table.
The Mahogany Bedroom located off the living room has a Full Size Mattress, Bureau, nightstand, and wood/brass wall mounted cloths rack for hanging clothes in lieu of a closet.
The Main Bath has a Ceramic Tiled Shower and Floor, and houses a Full Size Washer/Dryer.
The Den has a Sofa/Queen Sleeper Sofa, so can be used as a separate bed when singles are renting. This room has a Shelving Unit filled with interesting books, and an Asian Chest. Your TV here is a 40 inch HD with DVD Player. The Den also provides access via a Spiral Staircase to the Private Courtyard where Wrought Iron Furniture awaits you for dining or relaxing. A Gas Grill is available as well. A Solar Umbrella provides soft glow for evenings outside. The courtyard leads to the off-street parking area in the rear of the house.

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: After many years of frequent trips to Savannah, we left Philadelphia in 2012 to live in our dream home and experience Savannah full-time. 'We weren't born here, but we got here as soon as we could!' Since we live on the property in this great house, and have so many wonderful experiences living here, we wanted to share our home with others and help to make your Savannah Experience the best ever. We turned our second Floor Apartment into this Inviting Vacation Rental, and we look forward to meeting our interesting travelers.
Why the Owner Chose Victorian District, Savannah, GA, USA:
We chose this property because of its proximity to our beloved Forsyth Park. We try to take part in as many venues there as we can, from Music to Art to Athletics. The home needed extensive refurbishing, but we recognized its potential and good bones. After 4 1/2 years, and a lot of hard work we've been able to provide a unique, spacious and comfortable luxury apartment that offers many amenities that are difficult to find all in one home.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We just recently learned that our home was originally owned by an elite member of Savannah Society. We can't wait to research further. Since we live on the first floor, we hope our guest will feel confident that we are there to help make their experience the most enjoyable ever.
