_________________________________________

A feast for the eyes and soul — this house is Savannah! Elegant and historic and desired by all! Continue the long-standing and loving stewardship of this free standing circa 1796 Home. Rare Opportunity!

Own a piece of history — only three previous owners have lived here since the restoration and relocation of this famous Landmark Property, which is beautifully situated on the best residential block of Historic Saint Julian Street at number 507 East.

Wonderful light and grace wait to greet you in this one-of-a-kind eighteenth century home which is freestanding and encompasses four stories plus a roof walk with views of the Savannah skyline and ships passing by on the nearby Savannah River.

OOn the garden level, the most comfortable and enchanting rooms were envisioned and accomplished. Exposed hand-hewn beams accent the ceiling, handmade antebellum bricks from the White-Redding Plantation give a warm inviting feeling to the walls, floor, and massive fireplace, and a glazed wall with French doors looks into the famous garden created by historic home master craftsman, Jim Williams, featuring Italian obelisks and fountain. A powder room and a wet bar give additional comfort on this level.

With a five bedroom floor plan, three full baths and two powder rooms, 507 East Saint Julian Street can accommodate a number of different lifestyle configurations. On-street parking is abundant and with off street parking just outside the kitchen door, your teenager, in-law, or guest will enjoy the former porte-cochere turned private suite with its own entrance below the kitchen and sunroom. This area would also make a great private office.

Above is a superb addition, which expands the kitchen into the modern open floor plan so desirable for today’s style of living. Light and airy, the space greets you with an expanse of east facing windows and an outdoor porch overlooking the garden below. The kitchen has a modern open feel allowing for today’s casual entertaining style while the more formal rooms in front are perfect for those times when tradition counts. With a front parlor, formal dining room, another wet bar, butler’s pantry, and a cozy breakfast room, your choices for parlor level sitting and relaxing or entertaining are numerous.

Above the parlor floor is one whole level devoted to a master suite with an adjoining room that works well with its current arrangement for exercise equipment, media, and office space but could easily be used as a fifth bedroom, nursery, or occasional guest area.

On the top floor are the most splendid rooms for children or guests with light from dormers built into the gambrel roof and a full bath.

507 East Saint Julian, The Hampton Lillibridge House, is only a few steps to numerous fine restaurants, the venues of the Savannah Film Festival, and the Savannah Music Festival as well as all the other amenities of downtown Savannah. This home is perfect for entertaining and enjoying the walking lifestyle that is only achieved by living in Savannah’s National Historic Landmark District.

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.
