109 West 37th Street
This is a handsome, beautifully renovated two-story Victorian duplex in the red-hot Thomas Square neighborhood. Comprising two separate rental units, the building stands at almost 3000 ft.² and has five bedrooms and two bathrooms in total. Each unit has high ceilings, tall windows, hardwood floors and other original historic architectural details throughout. The upstairs unit boasts three bedrooms and one bathroom with handmade, artistic tile flooring in kitchen, bathroom and one bedroom. The downstairs unit has two bedrooms and one bathroom. Each unit has separate heating and cooling units – downstairs is a new unit as of 2016 – and each has a separate hot water heater. Each has its own, private back porch and the two units share a large, fenced and gated back yard. Thomas Square has become the hottest, hippest neighborhood in Savannah with the likes of Foxy Loxy Café, the Vault, Cotton and Rye, the Atlantic and so many others. Revitalization and a well organized, long established neighborhood association have added great structure to the existing neighborhood fabric. This Midtown location has easy access to Victory Drive, the Drayton/Whitaker Corridor, 37th Street Connector and the Truman Parkway to ensure quick travel to all parts of town. Can’t really go wrong with this one as this area is about to really “blow up” in the best of ways.

The heart of Savannah’s history
Savannah’s Landmark Historic District was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1966. It is one of the largest historic landmarks in the country. Its boundaries are East Broad Street, Gwinnett Street, MLK Boulevard and the Savannah River. Some of the significant buildings that were saved and restored include The Pirates’ House (1754), an inn mentioned in Robert Louis Stevenson’s book “Treasure Island”; the Herb House (1734), oldest building in Georgia; and the The Olde Pink House (1789), site of Georgia’s first bank. The birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low (completed in 1821), now owned and operated by the Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. as a memorial to their founder.
The Telfair Academy of Arts and Sciences, built in 1812 as a mansion, was one of the South’s first public museums. Restored churches include: The Lutheran Church of the Ascension (1741); Independent Presbyterian Church (1890) and the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist (1876), one of the largest Roman Catholic churches in the South. The First African Baptist Church was established in 1788. Savannah’s Temple Mickeve Israel is the third oldest synagogue in America.
In the last 10 years more than 50 million people came to visit Savannah, drawn by its elegant architecture, ornate ironwork, fountains and green squares. Savannah’s beauty is rivaled only by the city’s reputation for hospitality and a vibrant economy that pulses strongly. The Port of Savannah is one of the busiest in the country. Institutions of higher education are plentiful and include the Savannah College of Art and Design; a home-spun powerhouse in the realm of the Arts. Gulfstream is an exclusive maker of fine, private luxury jets and its marque is recognized around the world. Several large, excellent hospitals are nationally ranked and continue to expand their services.
By design, Savannah and its Landmark Historic District are microcosms that pulse with activity of all sorts from bars, to restaurants, to guest houses, retail and more. Life in the Landmark Historic District is a joyous reflection on the push and pull of city life as well as a study of the most famous urban forest and cityscape in the country. Lush green and booming business co-habitate side-by-side creating a synergy unrivaled by any other city.
