A freestanding house only 4 blocks east of Forsyth Park, our home on East Huntingdon Street has been completely renovated and decorated so as to be comfortable and cozy, furnished with charming antiques. The downstairs has a living area, dining area, full kitchen, half bath and laundry area. The living room has a flat screen TV. A satellite dish on the roof provides many channels. A computer hook-up is in the kitchen. An enclosed patio is right off the kitchen - a sunny place for a relaxing meal. Upstairs, we have two bedrooms. One with an antique double size mahogany bed and the second with two twin brass and iron beds that can be put together to make a king size bed. Sheets are available for the beds either as twins or king size. Upstairs is also a trunk room - common in old Savannah homes - that can be used as a walk-in closet - or for an extra bedroom for a child. A blow-up cot is accessible in the trunk room.
East Huntingdon Street is a quiet street. An ADT alarm system has been installed in the house so as to ensure that guests feel safe.
Savannah is a historic and beautiful city with many attractions. A vacation in the heart of Savannah will provide warm memories!
Terry and I live with our 12 year old son, Skyler, at a boarding school in Washington, Connecticut, where Terry teaches math. I own a school for young children, Creative Arts Studio, in Woodbury, CT. Between us we have 6 children - but only Sky is still at home with us. Terry is a collector and an explorer. He has impressive collections of Native American relics, old coins, bottles and just about anything 'collectible'. My interests include singing, songwriting and world drumming. Together, Savannah offers us both history and culture and the nearby beaches of Tybee Island. Our home in Savannah, where we plan to retire when Skyler is ready for college - reflects our tastes and interests. It is comfortable and cozy and is decorated with 'treasures' that we have collected over the years.
When Terry and I first visited the Savannah area in 2005, we were instantly drawn to the city of Savannah - especially the Historic District. The beautiful squares, the Spanish moss hanging from the giant oak trees and lining the streets - the restaurants, galleries, and small interesting shops drew us to the city. And the real bonus was - just 20 minutes away is the beach! Savannah really has the best of all worlds! Every time we visit, we find new and wonderful things to do and to explore. We keep bicycles at the house so that we can get around the city with ease (there is literally, hardly any traffic on many streets)...and when we get the urge for sand and surf, we jump in the car and head out to beautiful Tybee Island!
Our home - at 515 E. Huntingdon Street - is on a safe and quiet street at the southeast corner of the Historic District. It is a 3 minute drive to River Street - a four block walk to Forsythe Park. We bicycle all over the city and never have to worry about parking! The feedback that we've gotten from people staying in our home has been incredibly positive - as they love the fact that it's comfortable and cozy. As we plan to retire there in about 5 years - and we now visit as often as we can - the house is decorated and equipped with everything anyone could need. Our house manager, who is a licensed realtor and is located at the end of the block, makes sure that the house is clean and kept in perfect working order! VRBO has been a tremendous resource for us - as we love to hear from people all over who are interested in renting our home.
