1880 HISTORIC DISTRICT TOWNHOUSE

Savannah Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhouse - 3 Bedrooms - 2.5 Baths - (Sleeps 6)

This 1880 Savannah townhouse, within view of Forsyth Park's fountain, has been totally refurbished and is now available for truly discriminating travelers.

As the pictures demonstrate the home is decorated in period antiques and reproduction furniture. Antique bed frames, chests, armoires, and accessory pieces are used to set the mood of historic Savannah. Heart pine floors are throughout.

Inside find a beautiful living room and separate dining room, each with its own fireplace separated by a set of original pocket doors. A powder room and new kitchen are also on the first floor.

Walk through the French doors of this totally modernized kitchen and find yourself on a recently constructed back porch which overlooks beautiful private bricked courtyard. The porch and courtyard have table seating for eight. There is a gas grill if needed.

Upstairs are three bedrooms, two with full baths. The middle bedroom has private access to the rear bath. Six adults can comfortably be accommodated. A crib is available.

Our townhouse is located one block from Forsyth Park. Looking left out the front door you will see the Fountain in Forsyth Park. With that said, ALL within the Historic District is WALKABLE from our location. Just park your car on our NON-METERED street and enjoy your walk. The River is but a 15 minute walk away.

My wife and I were led to Savannah by our son who received a Masters Degree in Architecture at SCAD. Nearing retirement we both decided Savannah was the ideal place to spend our retirement lives. We have much to do, many cultural events and wonderful people to be with.

Larry Lehner purchased this townhome in 2008

Our townhouse when purchased was in dire need of a going over. It has turned out to be a beautifully restored home with all our personal needs and touches met. The location is perfect. We can walk everywhere within the district and still have the peace of a residential area. Likewise, parking is a non-issue.

Other then ALL of the Historic District being within an easy walk from our home, we can enjoy the concerts and events at Forsyth Park, walk to dinner or the coffee shop, shows and museums. We can spend a morning on River Walk or take a 15 mile ride to Tybee Beach. Hilton Head or Beaufort are short rides away.

EXCELLENT! NO DETAIL OVERLOOKED

  • 5 of 5
This is a well-appointed historical townhouse that complemented our rich Savannah experience. It has antiques throughout with upscale, modern conveniences. It's private and secure on a lovely, quiet street with Forsyth Park in view. Temperature controls on both levels, newly remodeled bath and kitchen, and comfortable seating on the back porch and quaint courtyard all made for a luxurious stay. There was not one attention to detail lacking! This is a showcase home, not a sparsely-furnished rental! We were extremely pleased.

FABULOUS...JUST FABULOUS

  • 5 of 5
We'd rented the owner's smaller townhouse just two doors down from this one the year before and just loved the location and, well, everything else to do with the rental. The owner is wonderful and responsive, his contacts in Savannah are fantastic, and the location is beyond perfect. Our kids love being so close to Forsythe Park (you can see the famous fountain from the door) and we loved being within walking distance to the whole city. This property was even nicer, though we wouldn't have thought that possible. Highly, highly recommended, and we hope to stay here again during our yearly trip to Savannah.

WEEKEND GETAWAY IN SEPTEMBER!!!

  • 5 of 5
It was a pleasure to stay here! The house was beautiful and offered every comfort and accommodation imaginable. Even beach chairs for our day trip to Tybee Island!
Located steps from the park, it was a great location!! Parking was easy and it was a short walk to river street.

The house was clean and immaculate and very comfortable. We loved the kitchen and having our morning coffee and a glass of evening wine in the courtyard. I would recommend this property to anyone that wants to experience a beautiful getaway in Savannah!!

OUR FAMILY CELEBRATION TRIP

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I celebrated our 25th Wedding anniversary this year and as a gift to each other we planned a trip including our children and grandchildren. I don't think we could have made a better choice than this amazing home!! It is furnished beautifully and comfortably! Your clothes, cameras and a few groceries are all you will need for the trip as this place has everything else. We enjoyed being able to walk to Forsythe park and spent most of our play time with our six year and 9 month old grandsons there. The courtyard is wonderful and we had lots of family, as well as girl time spent there. I would recommend this home to all my friends and we are already talking about a return trip!!

IT WAS BETTER THAN HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 of 5
As promised, this home was perfect for our Christmas in Savannah. We have stayed in several VRBO houses (in other locations) but never had such a great experience as this one. The owners provided every conceivable item one could need (even wine and beer!) and the location was just right for walking or catching the free buses to enjoy Savannah. We loved it! Thank you, Larry and Betsy, for helping to make this a holiday to remember!

THE PERFECT "HOME AWAY FROM HOME" - HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

THE PERFECT "HOME AWAY FROM HOME" - HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
  • 5 of 5
My mom, dad and I spent a lovely fall weekend in this historic townhome in celebration of my mom's birthday. It was perfect in every way. The home is beautiful, very spacious and clean, and tremendously comfortable. I agree with previous reviewers that the online pictures do not do it justice - especially the beautiful deck and courtyard in the back, both of which are right off the modern kitchen and totally private. The weather was nice, so one evening we opened the french doors and grilled steaks out back. Another morning we enjoyed brunch out on the deck. This place really does feel like home, and its authentic, historic feel is perfect for experiencing the charm of Savannah with all the modern comforts. It is perfectly suited to parties traveling together who nonetheless value privacy and space. For couples or larger parties, two of the bedrooms can be closed off to create completely private bedroom/bathroom suites. The home is stocked with everything imaginable - no need to bring anything but your robe and slippers! We cooked several meals, and found everything we needed in the well-stocked pantry. When I needed anything - from scissors to matches to the Savannah telephone book - all I had to do was think about where I would store it - and there it was, just like home! The lovely secretary in the living room served as a perfect spot for my laptop computer, which allowed us to conduct necessary business throughout the weekend. The home is in a great location for seeing the beautiful sights of the Historic District. It sits within view of lovely Forsyth Park and its majestic fountain, and is within easy walking distance of everything. On-the-street parking is plentiful and right outside the front door. We felt safe and secure at all times. Though you will be reluctant to leave the house, if you do, we highly recommend nearby Clary's Cafe (of "Midnight" fame) for breakfast or brunch. Larry and Ariel were terrific to work with, and made sure that we were well taken care of throughout our visit. I would highly recommend this lovely home to anyone visiting Savannah. You will not be disappointed. We hope to stay there again soon.
