Originally built as part of a triplex for Charles Kohler in 1891, this townhome was probably the one he built for himself to live in as it has the wider lot and finer detailing, like the pair of slate fireplace surrounds in the main floor double parlors. Beautifully modernized for today’s lifestyle, this home beckons you!

Basking in mid-day winter sun, 116 West Duffy glows with warmth, while the shadows nicely show off the beautiful Victorian detailing. As you approach, you will notice the great period bay window, lovely front porch, and vestibule leading into the home. Be invited in by way of the double front doors and you will find solid, original heart of pine flooring that runs throughout much of the home. The beautiful banister and newel post grace the stairs leading to the bedroom level.

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.

Also on the main level is the hall powder room for the convenience of your guests.

Ascend the beautiful staircase to the bedroom level. The roomy master showcases a south facing bay window, lighted ceiling fan, gleaming heart of pine floors, plenty of closet space, Victorian mantel and surround, plus a lovely large window seat the current owners recently added. The heart of pine floors continue to the private master bath, formally a trunk room, highlighting double vanities, additional built-in storage, and a shower over tub. The two secondary bedrooms, both with plenty of closet space and refreshing lighted ceiling fans, the second full bath, and conveniently located laundry area with included washer and dryer are on this level as well.

The spacious back deck is well-designed to take advantage of the French doors leading out from the breakfast room, making entertaining a breeze. The deck offers views of the garden area and gated fence leading to your three off-street parking spaces.

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.
