While he was the organist and music director of Savannah’s Unitarian Church, which faces onto Troup Square, the Reverend John Pierpont Jr. wrote the beloved Christmas song Jingle Bells, copyrighted in 1857. In 1985, the City of Savannah placed a plaque in Troup Square to commemorate the song and its Savannah roots.
Built in 1900, our cottage is in a quiet residential neighborhood 50 yards from Troup Square. The one bedroom, one bath property is single storey. Fully renovated in 2011, it has off-street parking for one small car and ample free street parking—no meters to feed with quarters or $7.00 daily parking permits required. Within easy walking distance of restaurants (there is one within 100 yards), the Savannah riverfront, and all of the fun and fascination of pre-Civil War historic architecture, beautiful landscaping, antique shops, etc.
Highlights: Private Deck with outdoor cafe table and chairs and 15-ft-long built-in bench for seating --- Full Gourmet Kitchen - island breakfast bar, quartz countertops, full-size stainless steel refrigerator, gas range, dishwasher, microwave --- Open Plan Dining Room/Living Room. Dining area has 1920’s oak draw-leaf table that can seat six, and a working fireplace. Living area has comfortable, queen-size pullout sofa-bed—one that you would actually be happy sleeping on!—custom manufactured by Rowe Furniture in North Carolina, with “Air Dreaml” innerspring air mattress system --- In the Bedroom, a Queen-Size Bed (The manufacturer describes this mattress as 'Firm' - not 'Extra Firm' , not 'Soft'.

- A few things not found in many Savannah rentals: • QUIET - a quiet residential street, and a one-storey building (no upstairs or downstairs neighbors). Like many historic Savannah homes ours is semi-detached, but we have installed 6 inches of sound insulation between us and the adjacent neighbor. • PRIVATE DECK with outdoor cafe table and chairs and 15-ft-long built-in bench for seating • In the Living Room area - A REALLY COMFORTABLE, QUEEN-SIZE PULLOUT SOFA-BED—one that you would actually be happy sleeping on!—custom manufactured by Rowe Furniture in North Carolina, with “Air Dream” innerspring air mattress system. • High-Definition Flat-Screen TVs (Living Room, Bedroom and Kitchen) with FULL HIGH DEFINITION CABLE, DVR, DVD player, Stereo CD player with iPod dock....moreless

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: We are a nearing-retirement age couple from the New York City area with backgrounds in fine arts and restoration, an appreciation for eccentricity, and a limited amount of patience for shoveling snow - so Savannah is perfect for us.
Why the Owner Chose Historic District - North, Savannah, GA, USA:
When our son was clever enough to pass up the blustery New York area where he was born and enrolled in the Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) in animation in 2004 we began thinking about escaping ourselves - at least for visits. He graduated in 2008 and has moved on to other challenges but we continue to be fascinated by Savannah, one of the most magical cities in the US.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
For short and longer term visits we have stayed in quite a few Savannah hotels and a dozen or so furnished vacation rentals, so we have a good idea of what we want to find to make us comfortable, which has guided us in renovating and furnishing this cottage.
