$725,000 | 4 Bedrooms | 3.5 Bathrooms | 4,072 Square Feet

Situated on nearly one acre adjacent to Juliette Low Park in Gordonston, this showstopper of a home reveals a remarkable pedigree. The 4000 square-foot Colonial Revival house was designed by John Courtney LeBey, a beloved Savannah architect famous for restorations throughout the landmark historic district- Davenport house being one of his first commissions. During the planning process for the house, LeBay accompanied his clients to Virginia to note favorite particulars of Williamsburg architecture that they admired such as arched brick colonnades, dentils in facade, bay windows, even “Williamsburg dormers” all as inspiration for the home’s final design. The most recent owners endeavored to preserve the integrity of the property and its grounds while updating interior conveniences, and achieved that with great success.  A bluestone walkway leads to the entrance which showcases stylistic flourishes such as matched chimney-end walls in facade, double dormers and an arched doorway. That arch theme is repeated rhythmically throughout the home.
Welcoming entrance foyer directs one to the grand-scale formal living room with fireplace. Elegant dining room with bay window overlooking lush side yard. Fully renovated kitchen boasts high end appliances with built-in refrigerator and separate freezer wrapped in top quality cabinetry and a DCS six-burner industrial stove and hood as centerpiece. Notably, the Butler’s pantry is better equipped than most home’s kitchens with a deep sink, wall oven and microwave as well as a full size Sub Zero refrigerator and freezer. The capacious den has handsome fireplace, shelves for a substantial library as well as bay window overlooking rear garden. Ground floor powder room has exotic botanical wallpaper and antique style commode as vanity. Four bedrooms and three bathrooms in the private areas offer ample room for family, friends and out of town guests. Owner’s bedroom boasts a fireplace and is fully en-suite including double vanities, a separate shower and tub. Claremont Huger Lee- a trailblazing female landscape architect-created lush garden designs that have stood the test of time and reflect a vision of Old South gardens of acclaim-all nestled within the tree-lined Beaux Arts streetscapes of Gordonston–one of Savannah’s few remaining under-the-radar communities. This house is a master work awaiting a discerning buyer ready to live out their dream of Home and Garden in an enchanted enclave of one of America’s most beautiful cities-Savannah.

Location! Gordonston

In 2001, the National Register designated Gordonston as an historic district. This leafy and lovely neighborhood, only five minutes from downtown Savannah, is one of the city’s oldest suburbs and it rests on a triangle between Skidaway Road on the south, Pennsylvania Avenue on the East and Gwinnett on the north.

In 1917, W.W. Gordon III, his sister Girl Scouts founder Juliette Gordon Low, and other members of the Gordon family converted an 80-acre family farm into Savannah’s second planned subdivision. (Ardsley Park-Chatham Crescent was the first.) It was a trolley suburb on the Thunderbolt streetcar line making it extremely convenient to Downtown Savannah. Pierpont Circle — with broad avenues radiating from it like spokes on a wheel — is the neighborhood’s focal point, along with a six-acre community park that Juliette Gordon Low donated to the neighborhood’s children in 1926. A plaque identifies a simple brown building at the park’s center as the Calder Cottage. The Union Bag and Paper Corp. — known these days as International Paper — presented it to the neighborhood in 1948. It is available for neighborhood meetings and can be rented to host events. The park was also once famous for showcasing stunning wrought iron gates which Ms. Low, an accomplished iron-worker, crafted and installed there. The originals have since been relocated to her home in Downtown Savannah, replaced with handsome replicas.

Gordonston’s architectural fabric represents styles in vogue from the 1910’s through 1950. These primarily include: Craftsman-style bungalows mostly on Gordonston and Kinzie Avenues, built during the 1910s and 1920s, large Colonial Revival-style homes built during the 1930s and more than 50 early ranch-style houses with carports or garages for automobiles, built between 1945 and 1950.

One of the best features of Gordonston- in the past and today- is its proximity to other areas of Savannah. Downtown is simply minutes away, the Southside is easily reached by the Truman Parkway which girdles the neighborhood and President Street Extension offers a straight shot to the Islands and the Beach. The booming Skidaway/Victory corridor is also located nearby and hosts one of the widest variety of retail and dining options in the city boasting everything from Target to Home Depot from Victory Cinemas to Starbucks and a true plethora of fast-food and casual dining options. The booming Whole Foods Market, PetSmart and Chipotle Grill complex in just minutes away as well.
