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!
