Located in Savannah’s enchanting Historic Landmark District, this 1848 Greek Revival shines brightly thanks to a smart, respectful, and stylishly executed renovation.

The main house contains five bedrooms and five bathrooms in 6,098 square feet on four floors; no wonder it needs an elevator. There’s even private elevator access to the master suite on the second floor.

Architectural details include the “magnificent” double porches, original fireplaces, heart of pine floors, and hand-carved plaster moldings.

The garden level includes a media room, full bathroom, and its own kitchen, which could easily double as guest suite or apartment.

And there’s two–yes, two–laundry rooms, one each on the first and third floors.

Outside the home, there’s ample space for relaxing and outdoor entertaining with a courtyard, swimming pool, pool lounge, and formal gardens by landscape designer John McEllen, who has designed many properties throughout the Hostess City of the South.

Above the three-car garage, there’s also a two-bedroom, two-bath apartment that would make the perfect in-law suite, nanny quarters, or rental unit. Views via oversized windows on some levels are enviable.

Two blocks off Madison Square and minutes from the city’s famous Forsyth Park, the home carries a 92 WalkScore to boot, similar to denser pockets of Midtown and downtown Atlanta.

As such, for a buyer with deep, deep pockets who can cover the $6 million asking price, this snazzy remodel could be a dream come true.
