 Welcome home to Historic 213 East Jones Street, a fully renovated semi-detached town home with a floor plan unlike any other house in the Historic Landmark District. This beautiful home is surrounded by the Live Oaks and the cobblestones of Historic Jones Street, arguably the most beautiful residential street in America.

As you approach the exterior of the home, you will see the wide high stoop, which is unusual downtown, creating a true front porch which allows for gatherings and extra privacy from the low stoop adjoining houses. This home offers interesting spatial qualities and foot traffic flow because of side doors and the two levels of porches built into the six foot wide passage.

Downstairs is a two bedroom garden level apartment with a warm and cozy front living room and fireplace, a spacious hearth kitchen with generous cabinetry and second fireplace, a Jack-and-Jill style bath between the two sleeping areas, and direct access from Jones Street plus a door leading to the courtyard. This separate apartment offers opportunity for teenagers, rental income, guests or an in-law unit.

Come see this inviting home located on one of the best blocks of Jones Street in Savannah’s Historic Landmark District.

Gorgeous, Free Standing, 1796 Landmark Property

507 E. Saint Julian

A feast for the eyes and soul — this house is Savannah! Elegant and old and desired by all! Continue the long-standing and loving stewardship of this free standing circa 1796 Home. Rare Opportunity!

Own a piece of history — only three previous owners have lived here since the restoration and relocation of this famous Landmark Property, which is beautifully situated on the best residential block of Historic Saint Julian Street at number 507 East.

Wonderful light and grace wait to greet you in this one-of-a-kind eighteenth century home which is freestanding and encompasses four stories plus a roof walk with views of the Savannah skyline and ships passing by on the nearby Savannah River.

On the garden level, the most comfortable and enchanting rooms were envisioned and accomplished. Exposed hand-hewn beams accent the ceiling, handmade antebellum bricks from the White-Redding Plantation give a warm inviting feeling to the walls, floor, and massive fireplace, and a glazed wall with French doors looks into the famous sunken garden created by historic home master craftsman, Jim Williams. A powder room and a wet bar give additional comfort on this level.

With a five bedroom floor plan, three full baths and two powder rooms, 507 East Saint Julian Street can accommodate a number of different lifestyle configurations. On-street parking is abundant and with off street parking just outside the kitchen door, your teenager, in-law, or guest will enjoy the former porte-cochere turned private suite with its own entrance below the kitchen and sunroom. This area would also make a great private office.

Above is a superb addition, which expands the kitchen into the modern open floor plan so desirable for today’s style of living. Light and airy, the space greets you with an expanse of east facing windows and an outdoor porch overlooking the garden below. The kitchen has a modern open feel allowing for today’s casual entertaining style while the more formal rooms in front are perfect for those times when tradition counts. With a front parlor, formal dining room, another wet bar, butler’s pantry, and a cozy breakfast room, your choices for parlor level sitting and relaxing or entertaining are numerous.

Above the parlor floor is one whole level devoted to a master suite with an adjoining room that works well with its current arrangement for exercise equipment, media, and office space but could easily be used as a fifth bedroom, nursery, or occasional guest area.

On the top floor are the most splendid rooms for children or guests with light from dormers built into the gambrel roof and a full bath.

507 East Saint Julian, The Hampton Lillibridge House, is only a few steps to numerous fine restaurants, the venues of the Savannah Film Festival, and the Savannah Music Festival as well as all the other amenities of downtown Savannah. This home is perfect for entertaining and enjoying the walking lifestyle that is only achieved by living in Savannah’s National Historic Landmark District.
