Enter the living room and notice the lovely polished old heart of pine flooring that may have been salvaged from an area historic residence, but now looks as though it was always a part of this home. Relax by the cozy fireplace or beneath the refreshing ceiling fan. The fireplace and complimentary built-in shelving serve as a subtle space divider between the living room and dining room areas.

Continue from the dining room to the thoughtfully re-envisioned all new kitchen with abundant modern cabinetry built and installed by local craftsman, Jim Rose. Stainless steel appliances include the GE top-of-the-line “Cafe” gas range and microwave, vented outside, as well as the new Bosch dishwasher. Additional kitchen features include Travertine tile flooring, gorgeous granite countertops, stone tile backsplash, exposed brick features, and a new glass door leading to the private courtyard. Also on the main level are the completely remodeled powder room with marble countertops, the laundry area with built-in shelving and porcelain tile, and a storage area.

Upstairs, you will find all three bedrooms and two new full baths, both entirely made of marble tile and showcasing large frameless walk-in showers. The master suite features a walk-in closet, hardwood floors, lighted ceiling fan, exposed brick, and the private en-suite bath. The second bedroom also features the hardwood floors, and the third bedroom includes a lighted ceiling fan, alcove area perfect for a desk, and hardwood floors.

Serenity is the mood of the private courtyard … the perfect setting for a quiet afternoon of reading or an evening nightcap.

This renovation has truly been a labor of love. Additional upgrades include new porcelain doorknobs throughout the home, all new double hung energy efficient windows in the back, newer historic windows in the front, new HVAC, a new roof, and new Rinnai tankless water heater. You will also appreciate the low energy bills and the ease of a condo lifestyle with NO HOA fees!

Come live the downtown lifestyle in a very “happening” block of Tattnall with three new Million $+ townhomes under construction (one built to suit, the other two are specs), filling in two of the few remaining buildable lots on Tattnall Street. Just a few short blocks to Forsyth Park, you can also easily walk to almost anywhere in the Historic Districts of America’s most sensitively designed urban district: Savannah, Georgia.

__________________________________

Rare free-standing circa 1846 home with beautiful views of the greens of Pulaski Square. One of only a dozen or so pre-1850s masonry homes south of Liberty Street, this was the first one built facing Pulaski Square.

Spectacular new kitchen and updated baths, and a three story elevator for aging in place. Of the four fireplaces, two are beautiful Egyptian black and gold marble mantles, which accent the double parlors.

Great neighborhood steps to renowned restaurants and a short walk to everything Historic Savannah has to offer.

First saved and renovated in the 1960s — the early renovation at that time included the use of native pink Georgia Granite (now depleted) for the substantial front stairs and bathroom showers, which continue to grace the home today.

Enjoy the attached covered off-street parking with direct access to the elevator, which is very convenient on shopping days.

Special side Camelia garden with beautiful lacy Iron work, and sunny laid back courtyard with a large saltwater swimming pool. The garden level of the home is separately metered in case one would like rental income. Otherwise, the floor plan allows for each of the three bedroom levels to be separate suites, and the parlor level, with large balconies overlooking the pool, for everyone’s enjoyment.

Amazing Home in Turners Cove

Posted: September 19, 2016
__________________________________________________

  Salt Pool with waterfall

Launched just over a dozen years ago, Turners Cove was the talk of the town when it released its marketing plan in the early 2000s.

An inspired design built to emulate the best of Historic Downtown Savannah with cobblestone streets, gorgeous fountains, beautiful landscaping and townhomes resembling their Victorian predecessors of 150 years ago, the modern interior is everything you wish you could find in an old house with open floor plans, walk-in closets and ensuite bath. Yet they retain the old town privacy of high walled courtyards, and an added bonus is the outer perimeter walking path surrounding the community, a great place for walking exercise to rival Forsyth Park.

And there is more — with a community pool (this home also has its own), play area, private and shared docks, plus a friendly adjoining marina for your boating pleasure on Turner’s Creek. AMAZING.

Owner has done many updates since last sold. Flood insurance is not required, and only costs about $400 a year if desired.

All the amenities and services of the Wilmington Island community like restaurants, shopping, and schools, are just outside the gate!
