Fully Restored Historic English Home

Posted: November 9, 2015
______________________________________________

American Dream! Complete with white picket fence and landscaped “City Style” frontage, fully restored and meticulously maintained historic English home with Colonial and Tropical styling. There are many fine details and fixtures found throughout this three bedroom, two full and one half bath historic home, including original and restored clapboard and original well maintained tin roof. Custom made, paneled wood doors, louvered doors and both Bahamian and two panel shutters featured throughout the home, with the exception of the front door and butler’s pantry door, which are original. All drywall is replaced, new insulation in walls and loft, as well as newly installed “Triple Crown Molding” throughout the home for a quality finish. Designed to harmonize and enable the occupant to fully benefit living in a late 19th Century home in the 21st Century.

The entrance foyer boasts beautiful transom window details, an original well-sized candelabrum chandelier, which is recently restored and wired for electricity, and basket weave patterned Brazilian black granite tile flooring. Lovely hardwood flooring flows through every transition from room to room throughout the entire home, including the living room.

The library dining room is a nice room for entertaining or relaxing by the working wood burning fireplace, with fully functional original pocket doors that open into the living room area and can be closed for privacy. Just like the Victorians who lived in these houses a century ago, by closing the pocket doors and lighting the fire, the owners recreate the warmth and ambiance of the past. The built-in custom-built library highlights Italian rope molding trim, stained to match the original stain of the preserved flooring.

The kitchen was done with a high-end industrial stainless steel exhaust hood vent and stainless steel appliances. Walls are tiled in Italian glass mosaic, giving the fully functional chef’s kitchen a feeling of warmth. The natural light filtered by the window treatments shines in over a recessed sink with Brazilian Uba Tuba black granite countertops and a stainless steel dishwasher. The cherry wood cabinetry has halogen lit, glass fronted upper kitchen cabinets to light and display your fine china, crystal and barware.

Upstairs, the owner’s suite features a sunny south facing bay window, a French door leading to a private outside deck, a louvered door leading to the walk-in closet with late XVIII century French “His and Hers” wardrobes and dresser with white marble top, and a palm frond ceiling fan with brass finish. There is also a working fireplace adding to the charm, and a gorgeous en-suite bathroom showcasing a Japanese style sunken bath with jets, and Brazilian granite fully tiled walls and shower with high-end “Hans Grohe” German shower fixture designed to not scald — the LED shower head, controlled and powered by the water itself, transitions from blue to pink to red depending on temperature.

The front secondary bedroom features a working wood burning fireplace, beautiful hardwood floors, and a palm frond design ceiling fan in a brass finish. You will also love the white Italian marble second bath with basket weave floor tiles, pedestal sink and mirrored pocket door.

The home has a large attic with a small window that matches the diamond patterned transom window above the front door. In addition to the storage space in the loft, underneath the main bedroom closet is a similar sized storage room, that has been created by enclosing two back porches in such an artful way, that it looks original to the house, without distracting from the charm and character of the home.

The manicured tropical garden is smartly designed with a clean textured look and easy maintenance. A real haven for birds and people alike. This home looks like Key West in Savannah!

Beach Institute District Historic Condo Row House!

_________________________________________________________
Posted: June 4, 2015

Welcome home to 542-A East Gaston Street, a Historic Condominium row house offering a perfect space for a second home, military couple (or single), professional couple (or single), or a SCAD PAD (Savannah College of Art and Design). Enjoy the convenient location near SCAD buildings and all the amenities of downtown Savannah. As an added bonus, because there are two living rooms and two entrances, this flexible layout offers a 2nd bedroom floorplan option for a SCAD PAD by utilizing the front living room as a 2nd bedroom with separate entrance. This floorplan option is used by many SCAD students!

Those seeking an affordable way to have a second home in Savannah will enjoy the location, too, with Mother Matilda Beasley Park within view and steps away with a dedicated dog park area, and Forsyth Park just a few blocks to the west. You will love the new kitchen and bath, refinished heart of pine flooring, a great garden space, plus one off-street parking spot out back. Lots of on street parking as well.

Take a sentimental journey back in time in this fully restored nineteenth century home with plenty of natural light, a full side-by-side laundry room off the kitchen, central heat and air, all new wiring, and all the charm of the downtown lifestyle. The kitchen is a pleasure to work in with great Corian countertop space and all newer cabinets and stainless steel appliances. Many a fine meal has been cooked here!

This historic neighborhood is known as The Beach Institute for its nearby neighborhood historic school, which is now a museum. This is a close-knit neighborhood with an active “Beach Institute” association if you want to get involved. Or, just sit back and enjoy all the progress that has been made over the past several years. Savannah is changing, and to be in this location, what I call the Golden Rectangle — Bay street to the north, East Broad to the East, MLK BLVD to the west (formerly West Broad street), and an ever changing line to the south — is getting harder to achieve at this price point. New construction is filling-in all the blanks — come and claim your piece!
