About the Property
Large, Bright, Spacious Two Bedroom, Large Front Porch, Live In The Live Oaks!
The Savannah that most visitors encounter is confined to the historic district between the Savannah river and the trees of Forsyth park draped in Spanish moss. But several blocks south of the park, beyond the sun-dappled squares and canopied streets, is the increasingly vibrant Starland district. The neighborhood, whose name comes from the defunct Starland dairy factory it surrounds, has in recent years emerged as an incubator for creativity that overflows from the nearby Savannah College of Art and Design (scad). Now a clutch of new shops, galleries and cafes has taken root here, providing a refreshingly rough-around-the-edges respite from Savannah’s polished, old south charm.
Enjoy 1,300 square feet to yourself. Located on the second floor, extra large living room, spacious grand dining room, french doors allow for privacy between the living spaces. Large front porch, feels like a tree house as you look out into the canopy of live oaks that line 37th street. Off-street parking.
Two large bedrooms, one bath. Sun room, back porch, soaring ceilings, elegant space.
Bright, airy, open, great location to explore Savannah.
Public bus transportation from Chatham Area Transit, stop is located one block on the corner of Abercorn St and E 37th St. Once downtown, hope on the DOT, for free drop off and hop back on service to explore the downtown. Check out the Chatham Area Transit , CAT, website for the routes.
From fine dining at perennial favorite Elizabeth on 37th ( located directly across the street) to fantastic burgers at the Green Truck Pub, the Thomas Square streetcar neighborhood boasts some of the best restaurants in the city. If you have a sweet tooth, make time to stop by Back in the Day Bakery. It's nearly impossible to make a decision, but you can never go wrong with bakery’s old fashioned cupcakes, star brownies or banana pudding.
Most of the city’s happening bars are located in the historic district, but the Wormhole in the Thomas Square streetcar neighborhood is one of the best venues for enjoying cheap beer and live music. The Wormhole considers itself a “variety club” because of the diverse performers who have graced the venue’s stage. Check the Wormhole’s website before your visit to see who’s playing while you’re in town.
The Thomas Square streetcar neighborhood has its fair share of galleries and stores, but some of the best shopping is the area’s many antique shops. Give yourself at least an hour to peruse the selection at Habersham Antiques Market. The store, located in a converted early 20th-century grocery story, has room after room of antiques from more than 70 dealers.
Check out these Starland jewels that were featured in the NY times article:
This new gallery exhibits contemporary artwork in diverse media. The small space has recently hosted video installations, an M.F.A. Thesis exhibition and a collection of works inspired by Japanese Kokeshi dolls by two SCAD alumni.
Graveface Records & Curiosities
This record shop, which opened in late 2011, also stocks an astoundingly strange assortment of ghoulish curios. In addition to racks of vinyl albums and a free arcade game in the store, the shop sells creepier wares like rodent skulls, taxidermied bunny busts and demented-looking dolls dripping with fake blood.
Art Rise Savannah
The pioneering Desoto Row Gallery, which has shown outdoor exhibitions in the graffiti-covered ruins of the Starland dairy factory, recently evolved into this nonprofit arts organization. Among the ongoing projects are a gallery space open on Saturday afternoons and the First Friday Art March , a monthly event showcasing the creative offerings of the district that has helped contribute to the area’s revival.
Green Truck Pub
Mason jars fitted with filament bulbs illuminate the bar at this popular hangout, which has topped local polls for the best burger in town since opening in 2010. Try the trailer park burger, topped with house-made pimento cheese and bacon, and one of the many southern craft brews from the extensive beer list.
In an art-filled two-story house, this gallery and cafe serves tex-mex dishes and lattes made with locally roasted Perc coffee beans. In the back courtyard, the fire pits, s’mores and half-price bottles of wine on Saturday nights draw crowds after dark.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

The area encompasses a large portion of the city, from the southern end of the victorian district to the start of midtown at victory drive. The neighborhood, which was designated a national historic landmark district in 1997, is comprised of beautiful late 19th-century houses, neighborhood cafes, shops and galleries. The starland district may be more familiar to locals. Located within the confines of the thomas square streetcar neighborhood, the district occupies land that once housed the starland dairy and is today a hub for the city’s creative minds.

Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: I moved to Savannah in 1989 to get my MFA in Historic Preservation from SCAD. Since 1996 I have managed 22 of my own units which are long term leases. These units are all located in historic properties that were all built in the 1920s as either duplexes or 4-unit apartment buildings. None of my properties are single family houses divided into apartments, all of them have proper living rooms, dining rooms and bedroom spaces. This property is in such a great location for all of Savannah and is so spacious, I thought it would be ideal for a long term stay in Savannah. I hope you agree. Enjoy Savannah, Mark
Why the Owner Chose Thomas Square, Savannah, GA, USA:

Located just a few blocks south of downtown Savannah, the Starland District has established itself as a hub for local art and music, unique shops, boutiques, and a varied selection of restaurants and cafés. From antique shopping to pet supplies, a stylish hair cut to a new tattoo; Starland has something for locals and tourists alike. We invite you to explore everything the Starland District has to offer.
