Parkside Homes for Sale
The Parkside neighborhood, so named because the community borders Savannah’s stunning Daffin Park, runs west to east from Waters Avenue to Bee Road and from Washington Avenue to around 52nd St from north to south. Parkside features architectural styles built throughout Georgia during the first half of the 20th century, including Craftsman, Colonial Revival, Cape Cod and English Vernacular Revival. In Daffin Park, Grayson Stadium is an excellent example of World War II-era stadium design.
Leafy shade covered streets and Craftsman style homes are a hallmark of the Parkside neighborhood. Located immediately adjacent to one of Savannah’s acclaimed green spaces, Parkside is a quaint close-knit community offering an affordable alternative to Ardsley Park, its upscale cousin to the west. Houses in Parkside are mostly one- and two-story brick-and-frame dwellings built between 1914 and 1947 and feature a variety of architectural styles that include Craftsman, Colonial Revival, Cape Cod, and English Vernacular Revival. Charming bungalows are perhaps the signature architectural style in this neighborhood though there is a sprinkling of larger homes, multi-family buildings and even a few modernist gems. Parkside represents an early example of an early twentieth-century automobile suburb in Georgia.

A really great place to walk dogs and meet other dog owners is the Herty Pines Dog Park a well designed and user-friendly park next to Grayson Stadium. The center of the park features a grass promenade that runs the length of the park amid huge oaks with limbs stretching out and forming a shaded moss canopy.

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.
BALDWIN PARK – Nestled to the southeast of Savannah’s Victorian District is the quaint residential neighborhood of Baldwin Park. Within these few blocks you can see an architectural timeline of downtown Savannah. From the Victorian homes and mansions that line its border on Victory Drive to the early 20th century bungalows that make up most of the neighborhood, every home has character and charm. Originally this neighborhood was part of the Chatham Crescent development, an area known for its curvilinear streets, roundabouts, and parks. With the creation of Victory Drive in 1919 Chatham Crescent was separated, and the north end became what is today known as Baldwin Park.
