Another one of Savannah's nice little surprises, this 1875 vintage townhome has a plain face to the street, but she is cozy, fresh, and modern inside --- with a stunning and surprising deck area out behind. It has the feel, accommodations and furnishings of a place you can call home no matter how long or short your stay. First floor: living room, half bath, and large eat-in kitchen. Second floor: Two larger bedrooms (queen beds) and full bath. A comfortable fold-out twin bed is hidden in the large leather ottoman in the living area. Oriental carpets on original wood floors in the living room, bedrooms, and halls.
This block of Taylor Street has large rear yards, and at this property that has been transformed into a great big shaded "architectural" deck area created by Yancey Siebert, a leading Savannah-based designer. The back yard features: (1) a brick courtyard leading up to (2) an oversized two-level deck around a gracious shade tree, with bamboo plantings, water feature, and brick walkways. The jumbo deck area is shared with a 3-bedroom near "mirror image" townhouse next door and with a 1-bedroom cottage at the rear of the property; either or both of them can be reserved with this one to accommodate larger groups such as for weddings, family reunions, and business group travel. See listings 1034 and 1035 for photos and descriptions of these properties.
Nearby: One and a half blocks to lovely Whitefield Square with the beautiful gazebo, and a short walk to Savannah's famous Clary's for breakfast or lunch, and to the Firefly Cafe on neighboring Troupe Square; close to beautiful Forsyth Park.
Lots of unrestricted parking right out front on the well-lighted street. The 500 block of East Taylor is a feast of architectural diversity, with several recent restorations and renovations. Taking her place among two-story wood homes, cute cottages, and impressive brick townhouses, this townhome is right in the middle of one of Savannah's many interesting quiet side streets, convenient to everything in the Historic District.
