Why The Owner chose Savannah
My wife and I LOVE the location! We originally purchased this property as a downtown location for our college age children. We were looking for a property directly on Forsyth Park, a large city park that occupies 30 acres.
What makes this condo unique
Forsyth is Savannah's own Central Park and the site of numerous year-round festivites and events. The convenience of the property to Forsyth Park cannot be overstated. This is an ideal location for weddings in the park. Its wonderful to see the joggers, soccer games, ultimate frisbee and other outdoor activities associated to a large green space. It is within eash walking distance to local restuarants and attractions.
