Location! [Ardsley Park]
Ardsley Park-Chatham Crescent is a large, highly intact residential area developed, beginning in 1910 as two adjacent planned subdivisions. The plan of Ardsley Park, a regular grid with landscaped squares, is extremely important to the fabric of historic Savannah as it is a twentieth century variant of Oglethorpe’s original city plan.
In 1985, Ardsley Park and Chatham Crescent were named to the National Register of Historic Places under the collective name of Ardsley Park. Ardsley Park’s central location, its physical beauty and strong property values positions it as one of Savannah’s most desirable communities. Thanks to a strong and active neighborhood association as well other community-minded residents Ardsley regularly lands on “Best of…” lists in local publications. The various parks, broad streetscapes, and lush canopy encourage walking, biking and running. Waters Avenue and Abercorn are direct routes both Downtown and to the Southside and Victory Drive is a straight shot to the Islands. So, Downtown is only ten minutes away and one can be on Tybee Island in about twenty minutes. Also, Ardsley Park abuts the Ardmore community, home to red-hot Habersham Village with its shops, restaurants and bars as well as diamond-shaped Hull Park, which has become a popular, kid-friendly recreational site.
The nearby distractions of a stunning and historic city, the promise of its beaches and Low Country, and a unique urban environment and fabric find Ardsley Park situated at the apex of all things that rate “Best of..” in Savannah.
Chatham Crescent is a rare example in Georgia of a Beaux Arts influenced “City Beautiful” type plan with a grand mall, crescent-shaped avenues, and small circular parks incorporated into a basic grid pattern. The idea was the brainstorm of Harry Hays Lattimore, William Lattimore and anonymous partners in the Ardsley Park Land Corporation. No one is certain how the Ardsley name evolved though some have theorized that it was borrowed from a British neighborhood.
The northern and western boundaries of Ardsley Park were marked at Estill Avenue and Bull Street by an impressive looking retaining wall made of Belgian block similar to those used as ballast on ships sailing from England. At key intersections stone pillars with Spanish-looking tile roofs marked the entrances to the park. The neighborhood is also bounded by Waters Avenue to the East and 58th Street to the South. The architectural styles in this historic district include textbook and local interpretations of almost every revival and eclectic style popular in the early twentieth century.
