Located on the corner of Charlton and Lincoln in Historic Savannah, the newly renovated Lamplight Carriage House is a lovely mix of old and new. Built in 1855 for Charles Lampe just across the courtyard from his main house, Lamplight is perfectly situated in a quiet ward within easy walking distance of restaurants, shops and sightseeing.
Accessing Lamplight through its private brick courtyard, entry is gained through its restored 3” thick period door. Handsome slate tile floors throughout the ground floor perfectly complement the new décor. The living area offers ample seating as well as a place to view entertainment in the comfort of brushed velvet swivel chairs - the mirror above the fireplace is also a smart television. An antique dining table with seating for four anchors the room.
In the nearby kitchen, light flows through double windows, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. All modern conveniences are incorporated into this luxury space, including a Nespresso coffee machine with complimentary pods. Under-counter refrigerator and freezer drawers, dishwasher, toaster, microwave, electric kettle and frother, and waffle iron are neatly concealed yet at your fingertips. Two can sit at the beautiful marble island for a casual meal or to keep the cook company. Above the main floor is the King master bedroom, complemented with an antique writing desk, pine chest of drawers, dual closets and a soft, linen loveseat. A nearby smaller bedroom offers a twin bed with a trundle twin below that can convert to a second King. Off both bedrooms is a spectacular, well-lit marble bathroom featuring a waterfall shower/tub combination, beautiful fixtures and ample storage.
Within walking distance of this stylish carriage house are many local attractions including the marvel of the recently restored Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, the famed Mercer-Williams House of the book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, the long-established Mrs. Wilkes' Boarding House, and southern author Flannery O'Connor’s childhood home. Vast shopping found on Broughton Street and in the boutiques on Whitaker Street are also within easy reach.
