Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My husband and I relocated from NYC, seeking a slower pace within a city atmosphere. Savannah was perfect. Wonderful weather, beautiful architecture and the friendliest of people. Bonus - we are 15 minutes from the ocean.

Why the Owner Chose Historic District - South, Savannah, GA, USA:
We fell in love with this wonderful city and all it had to offer. This home represented the grand homes of the past. We felt all our visitors would be able to experience a piece of Savannah's history with all the modern amenities. .

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This apartment has 3 wonderful 8' bay windows, with a direct view of the fabulous fountain in Forsyth park. Being steps from the park makes this apartment magical.
