This pristine home boasts high ceilings, floor to ceiling windows that fill the home with an abundance of natural light, and is enriched with character from the original architectural details. Overlooking Chatham Square in the heart of Savannah's Landmark District, situated beneath breathtaking Oak Trees draped in Spanish Moss, this estate is an idyllic retreat for those looking to have one-of-a-kind experiences.

The exterior boasts a picturesque staircase that leads up to the second level main entry, where guests can utilize the secure, electronic lock, for ease of access throughout their stay. Upon stepping inside, you’ll be greeted by the grand entrance hall with original wood floors and an elegant, staircase. To your left is the parlor, where you can look out at Chatham Square with unobstructed views and be transported through time.

No detail was spared while designing this space; the sophistication of a southern home was truly captured, from the sky-blue ceilings, pastel furniture, and elegant patterns. While this space is certainly a showstopper, you will find an ample amount of comfortable seating for your entire party to gather, in addition to a smart television with access to all of your favorite streaming channels. Beyond the parlor, guests will find a scullery, where provisions can be stored and hand-crafted cocktails can be made for those intimate dinners, or evenings in the courtyard.

The formal dining room connects, where your party will enjoy views of the beautifully manicured courtyard, surrounded by brick walls to ensure a total sense of privacy. An entertainer's dream, the chef’s kitchen is open to the formal dining room, with a large center island, perfect for those home cooked or catered meals. The kitchen features top of the line stainless steel appliances, an abundant amount of space, a walk-in pantry, and quartz countertops. Rounding out the main level is a charming powder room and a spacious laundry room with custom built-ins. 

The third level is made up of three tastefully designed guest suites fitted with king beds, each with a different yet similar style. The primary suite resides at the back of the home, overlooking the courtyard, with custom window treatments, and a sitting porch with plantation shutters. Accessing the ensuite bathroom through the walk-in closet, you’ll find a luxurious, spa-like oasis. From the large soaking tub, double travertine marble vanity, and walk-in shower, you’ll never want to leave.

The second suite can be accessed from the primary suite, or closed off, which is ideal for parents with young children. Down the hall, at the front of the home, the third suite overlooks Chatham Square and the majestic oak trees, also fitted with custom window treatments. The full-size guest bathroom can be accessed from the third suite, or the hall, making it convenient for all guests. This bathroom is fitted with a spacious, walk-in tiled shower, and beautiful travertine marble vanity.

Making your way down to the garden level, perfect for in-laws or guests that have mobility issues, you’ll find an additional gathering space that boasts natural light, and hand-laid brick flooring. You’ll find the final guest suite with a king bed, adjacent sitting room, full-size ensuite bathroom, and wet bar as well. Don’t fret; the thoughtful design and attention to detail was carried throughout this entire estate, to ensure every guest has the same experience.

Stepping into the manicured private courtyard, it provides an ideal outdoor space for intimate gatherings. The charm is carried throughout, with potted lemon trees, beautiful lush greenery, and plenty of seating for everyone in your party.
