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!

Join the privileged few to live the Savannah lifestyle with a view! Boasting dramatic views of the Savannah Bridge, City Hall and other downtown landmark buildings, 323 West Jones, circa 2006, itself a landmark building, has it all. Atop this glorious incredible building, an everlasting tribute to Carson and Whitlow and so many more — the dreamers of two thousand and four — your oasis awaits.

With light on three sides from sun to sun, if you have your choice, this penthouse should be the one. This coveted penthouse is one of only four in this twenty unit community that includes rooftop rights of approximately 2000 square feet, as well as a larger private balcony. Create your private rooftop oasis!

Prepare to impress the moment you and your guests approach this landmark building. Shaded by ten year old Crepe Myrtle trees, the courtyard entry leads to a grand double stairway and impressive entrance.

With a floor plan boasting many assets like three bedrooms, all with en-suite baths, a separate office or den, rich heart of pine flooring recycled from a historic Kentucky Bourbon warehouse, walk-in closets, and a kitchen galore with two dishwashers, butler’s pantry, wet bar, and more.

Enter the penthouse to the spacious living room with gleaming historic heart of pine floors, cozy fireplace, wall of windows, and French doors leading out to the large covered balcony. Conveniently located off the entry is a office, den or separate sitting room. Open to the living room is the dining room, which leads into an open butler’s pantry area, and kitchen.

This spacious, fully-equipped kitchen is sure to impress. Features include stainless steel appliances and cooktop hood, granite counters, tons of storage and workspace, up-lighting and under-cabinet lighting, and a breakfast area with light-filled bay window. The open butler’s pantry includes one of two dishwashers, ice-makers, and separate sink, and the wet bar area is a bartender’s dream as it is a completely separate area that can be closed off — perfect for parties — with its own ice-maker and wine cooler.

Of the three bedrooms, two are master suites. The larger master includes two his-and-her walk-in closets with built-ins, direct access onto the balcony, tremendous natural light, and a huge master bath. This luxurious master features a spa tub with bay window views, large double vanity with timeless Corian counters, and separate walk-in tile shower with bench seat. The second master is completely separate from the other two bedrooms and offers a walk-in closet with built-ins, direct access to the balcony, and private bath with double vanity and a shower over tub. The third bedroom includes an en-suite bath and large double closet — the perfect place for guests or young family members.
