About Ed

I grew up in the Philadelphia area and graduated from Temple University majoring in Architecture. I currently live on Long Beach Island, New Jersey. We currently have 4 rental properties from Florida to New Jersey.

Ed purchased this house in 2006

Why Ed chose Ardmore/Gould Estates/Olin Heights

My daughter graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design with a masters in Architecture. She was the inspiration for the purchase of this house and lived here while attending college.

What makes this house unique

Paula Deen lived here during the mid 1990's and started here business as the bag lady. Working in her kitchen and sending Bobby and Jamie out on their bikes to serve bag lunches to the local businesses in downtown Savannah.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Paula Deen house has been the Best Place to stay. The house has everything we needed. We utilized every part of this house with our 7 people and the back yard was a unanimous favorite.

The house is close to everything.

We were surprised by the trolley stopping in front of the house. That made everyone more excited that we were staying here.

On one of our adventures we stumbled across the gift shop for Paula's store and discovered that she was doing a book signing and we were able to meet with Paula and her family!

We shared with them where were staying and they were all excited. Jamie even said he might come over and knock on the door, that he hasn't been there in 20+ years.

We enjoyed the Lady and Sons for dinner the next night. Then Saturday for lunch, we saw Paula and family at Chick Fila.

This has been the "Best Vacation Ever".

Great property and quiet location, lots of amenities

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Savannah! The home was very clean, had lots of extras such as shampoos, toiletries, an ice maker, very nice furnishings, and we felt right at home in this nice neighborhood. Also loved the backyard and privacy fence along with birds and squirrels. It was easy to check in and out. We did lots of things in the Savannah area such as river street, all the many squares, Forsyth Park, and ate at some great places. Also went to St Simon Island and various areas close to Savannah. We had excellent weather in February as it was unseasonably warm and in the 80's during our stay. Would highly recommend staying at this home in Savannah as it has a great location and is close to many things to do in the Savannah area. We appreciate being able to stay in such a lovely home!

Great Girls weekend Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The house was great close to bus line so we didn't have to drive and pay for parking downtown. Its a quaint older home that was ok for the 8 of us close enough to downtown yet far enough not to worry about all the hustle and Bustle of downtown. It was well stocked with the little things you need (plastic wrap garbage bags also coffee that was a great surprise) all the dishes you would need ( we ate out mostly ) the master bath could have been better designed, but for the 5 days we were there it was fine. nice quiet neighbor hood. would recommend to my friends.

Felt Like Home

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd stay at this property and we absolutely love it. Quite, lovely neighborhood close enough to downtown (3 mi approx) without the parking hassles. The overall set up is wonderful for a family as 3 bed rooms and a living room give ample room to relax and refresh. The backyard, with its big table is a great place to drink morning coffee and watch the cardinals fly around. Very close to some GREAT restaurants (Bella's on Habersham for dinner, Hammond House for breakfast) and Publix market is very close too.

Clean and well stocked with towels and basics. The Kitchen is wonderful and still holds some of Paula's magic as I have yet to burn a thing there! The owner, Ed, is a dream to work with and very quick with communication. Which I appreciated very much as we were checking in with him about Hurricane Irma's effect on the area.

A great, great place that we will return to in the near future.
