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.

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.

Rare Free-Standing Circa 1846 Home

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.
