An ivy-covered brick exterior, tall rooms full of natural light, and an address in Savannah’s historic district make this home a city dweller's dream escape on the coast.

By Lauren Phillips

The chance to buy a piece of history doesn’t come along very often—and most chances aren’t as pretty as this one. This elegant townhome in the Savannah Historic District was built in 1875, and it’s on the market—good news for those who want to snag a piece of the Hostess City of the South.

As if an amazing location just a block from Savannah’s Forsyth Park, with easy access to storied River Street and beaches on Georgia’s coastline like Tybee Island, weren’t enough, this home is also pretty as a peach, with high ceilings, plenty of natural light, and beautiful contemporary interiors.

The first-floor parlor, like the rest of the house, has neutral walls and wood floors. It also has one of the nine fireplaces in the home. The kitchen is just as gorgeous, with updated appliances, striking dark floors, and light cabinetry, counter tops, and backsplashes. The chic stonework in the kitchen is repeated in bathrooms around the house, including the master, which boasts a soaking tub. Large windows in most rooms keep the spaces feeling light and airy, while offering breathtaking views of Savannah.

Upstairs, this home has a more relaxed family room, complete with views of the lush trees that surround the property. Upper level balconies look over the courtyard, which has its own abundant garden.
