The Webster-Hopkins House – Framed in History!

The Webster-Hopkins House is a lovely three bedroom home on a deep roomy lot surrounded by lush lawns and gardens, which overlook old Estill Avenue, renamed Victory Drive after World War One. Constructed in 1950 of wood frame and red brick, the current owners are only the fourth to occupy the home and they have lovingly cared for the property and grounds, recently updating the kitchen and baths including a large luxe tiled shower. 630 East Victory Drive is a writer’s haven, and, if the walls could talk, there might be a mystery or two to solve, along with a few presidential stories to share as well.

As you approach the home by way of the circular driveway, notice the extensive landscaping, manicured lawns, well-clipped shrubs, and abundant well-cared-for details welcoming you.

Enter to the spacious and beautifully appointed living room showcasing a lovely fireplace and enjoying warm light, which bathes the room.

Going back from the living room leads to the library/den area overlooking the back gardens and featuring wonderful built-in storage and handsome paneling. Great light illuminates this room, and sliding doors lead out to the patio and lawn. Relax with a good book on the built-in sofas, also offering great storage within.

Also adjoining the living room is the dining room, creating nice flow. This elegant and spacious dining room comfortably seats six and features wide crown moulding, gorgeous wood floors, and chair railing.

Adjacent to the dining room is the very bright and cheerful modern kitchen offering abundant counter space and white cabinetry, a pantry, and hardwood floors. Off the kitchen is a back porch providing a sitting area wonderful for looking over the patio and garden, and a breezeway leading to the garden and garage area. Also located on the main level is the lush powder room, which has been beautifully updated.

Upstairs is the bedroom level. The master suite includes a dressing room with lovely built-ins and wonderful make-up vanity, and an en-suite full bath with large, gorgeous glass and tile shower and amazing vanity. The second bedroom includes a refreshing ceiling fan, and the third bedroom offers two closets. The bedroom level also includes an updated full hall bath and pull down access in the central hall to the attic work room, serving as a handy hobby space.

Outside is your private garden oasis with handsome brickwork, lush grounds, and a well-cared-for back garden and patio, the perfect spot for sitting out of doors and enjoying Savannah’s year-round weather. The Webster-Hopkins House was built in 1950 by the Websters, and Mrs. Webster was the president of the Trustees garden club in Savannah. Hence, the many established plantings around the house that remain today, as the husband of the household is also a Master Gardener who has worked hard and happily bringing the gardens to life.

This delightful gem has been a “writing house” and June and Christopher work on their latest projects upstairs in their office just about every day. Come see this warm and inviting home full of good cheer and inspiration, awaiting a new story to tell.

From the foyer to your left is the living room, referred to as the front parlor, which basks in the mid-day sun. This cozy and inviting space is a great spot for entertaining friends, and evening relaxing. The slate mantel is one of two original mantles on this level. The new chandelier is one of a pair you will find in the home. You will love the working pocket doors that can close off the dining room, or allow for an open floor plan when opened. High ceilings and wide doorways lend a feeling of good flow, and add a nice spacial quality to the home.

The lovely dining room showcases the original heart of pine floors, and the side window is a bonus allowing natural light to this room.

The beautiful all-white kitchen in a family chef’s dream featuring Corian countertops, abundant cabinet and counter space, and a spacious breakfast bar with seating. The comfortable and contemporary breakfast room overlooks and provides access to the back deck through fabulous French doors.

Why Visitors End Up Moving to Savannah, Georgia

Posted: November 30, 2016

savannah-spanish-mossIt’s not hard to understand why visitors don’t want to leave Savannah. The southern hospitality coupled with the incredible beauty make it one of the top places to visit every single year. However, many visitors actually end up moving to the city for many different reasons. Here are some of the main reasons visitors don’t want to go and actually end up relocating to Savannah.

A Historic City in Modern Times

You won’t lose your internet connection or walk into a world without smartphones, but you can go back in time when you arrive in Savannah. The city is full of history from the trolley to the horse-drawn carriages found throughout. Just taking the DOT Express Shuttle around the Historic District might make you feel like you’ve stepped into the past.

Unique Shopping

Most cities offer shopping, but the unique boutiques found throughout Savannah might make you want to come back for more. There’s plenty of artwork throughout the city and all types of goods can be found at the antique shops. You might just get hooked on the local shopping experience.

It’s Like Living in a Vivid Painting

Savannah is one of the most beautiful cities in the entire world. Some even believe it rivals the top choices in Europe. With Spanish Moss-draped trees, beautiful streets and squares, old-style architecture and incredible water views, you may decide you don’t want to step out of the painting any time soon.

Savannah is known for the historic homes with some of the oldest in the entire country. The original wrought-iron railings, brick structures and woodwork might just make you want to relocate to Savannah instead of just visit.

The City is Famous

From Forest Gump to Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, Savannah has gained popularity and fame over the years. It has been featured in a number of films because of the beauty throughout and the setting. When you visit, you may feel like you’ve stepped onto a movie set and that’s because Savannah is a bit of a movie set.

The Squares are Addictive

savannah-squaresSavannah has a total of 22 squares and each one is unique. You won’t find anything like it anywhere else. Originally, these squares were part of a fire prevention plan, but they have become beautiful gardens full of history today.

It’s a Foodies Dream

The unique dining experiences found all throughout Savannah simply don’t compare to your hometown, no matter where you live. Enjoy places, such as Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room or The Olde Pink House for unique experience. All throughout the city, you’ll find a variety of dining options to enjoy.

Haunted and Spooky Draw

savannah-hauntsMaybe you’re drawn to ghost tours and spooky legends. Savannah is your city if you love the haunted vibe. It offers a number of historic homes and cemeteries thought to be haunted with plenty of ghost tours ready to lead you through. Just about any local will be able to tell you their favorite ghost story and a trip to Bonaventure Cemetery will have you hooked.

Winter is Very Mild

If you enjoy wearing short sleeves year-round, you’ll love the weather in Savannah. You won’t need that heavy winter coat with temperatures reaching the high 60s and low 70s in the winter. It will be a bit cooler at night, but layers of clothes still won’t be necessary.

A Beach Day is Just a Stroll Away

Depending on where you stay when you visit or where you live when you relocate to Savannah, the beach may be just a stroll away. Even if you cannot walk to the beach, you’ll be close enough to enjoy a beach day whenever you want. Tybee Island is one of the best spots and it’s just 18 miles from Savannah.

Visiting Savannah is great, but you’ll likely end up wanting to move here as many do every year. Once you get a sense of what the city is all about, it’s hard to leave.
