The Front Loft at Sanctuary Place was completed in 2010. Like it's sister Loft next door, the Front Loft is full of original details combined with modern design features. Throughout the space the commitment to preserve the past is evident. Great care has been taken to accentuate the original craftsmanship while attending to the needs of modern life. The stained glass creates a welcoming allure of light in different combinations throughout the day making the Font Loft ideal for entertaining or just relaxing with a book.There are two bedrooms and two baths - both beds are queen. The first floor bathroom has a walk in tile shower, the top floor bath has a large cast-iron tub. The Loft is fully equipped for cooking and stocked with the comforts of home. Great location right off Forsyth Park. ALSO AT THIS LOCATION: HomeAway Listing #363126, HomeAway Listing #945597, HomeAway Listing #970834, HomeAway Listing #364517
My husband and I stayed at the Front Loft in November and had an amazing time. The experience here is so unique, I'm really happy that I had an opportunity to stay at a property like this. As everyone else says, the pics don't do it justice, there is no way to capture the soaring ceilings and the awesome, open space. The belltower bathroom is very impressive in person too. The location was good, we walked everywhere we wanted to go, and I like the fact that its a bit off the main tourist section because it allowed us to explore places that I don't think we would otherwise. For example, there is a ton of great stuff within walking distance on Bull St, like Back in the Day Cafe and The Vault, which I don't think I would have walked to if I was staying closer to the river. It's still only a couple blocks off Forsyth Park though, so exploring downtown was super easy too. Another plus is that the owners were super nice and communicative. All in all, I would be very happy to stay here again!
This loft is incredible, a beautifully restored sanctuary and elegantly furnished. We totally enjoyed our stay here.
This property is two blocks southwest of historic Forsyth Park in a quiet residential neighborhood, and was precisely as advertised. The kitchen is well stocked with appliances (fridge, gas stove, dishwasher, washer, dryer), cookware, dishes, and flatware. The Kroger's grocery is a 2 minute drive. I met friends for drinks at the Mansion Hotel, a ten minute walk. Free onstreet parking. Incredibly convenient to the Savannah College of Art and Design, whose seventy-or-so renovated building classrooms are all across town. The converted church property retains its incredible character, including the two-story bell tower upper bathroom. The owners left tons of helpful guides and pamphlets to review if you are interested in Savannah's history before just setting out aimlessly. Immaculately clean, plenty of towels, comfortable beds. One observation: if you like complete darkness in the morning, this is not the property for you. The sunlight coming through the stained glass windows, from the crack of dawn to sunset, is magnificent.
Photos really don't do this place justice, just beautiful!
Also, Kevin and John are both more than helpful.
We will be back!
Sanctuary Place is unique, historic and thought provoking. The windows are so beautiful and the memorial windows kept making us wonder about the families who were named. The architectural design, making a church become a living space, was tastefully thought out and very functional. The location was perfect for us because we had a car and had no problem parking. But a heads up for those of you who park on the street. We did get a parking ticket that had something to do with a chalk mark. We did not know they marked the tires and had follow the printed signs.
Our stay in Savanah was one of the best experiences we have had. The food and service were outstanding, the tours were spot on, the green spaces and parks made walking so easy. And, of course, we had a wonderful home in which to stay. Thank you.
This location, just off the southend of Forsyth Park has a lot of advantages. The first being the park itself: 10 acres of green-space lined with 200 year old, moss covered trees. 2 large playgrounds, tennis and basket ball courts and a large amphitheater with a cafe. The park serves as a center piece for downtown life and acts as a gateway to the historic squares that make up downtown. The farmers market is every Saturday and the park host many events throughout the year. Several local favorites on this end of the park too including the Sentient Bean Cafe and Brighter Day Grocery - 2 indispensable places for many downtown residents. A free shuttle to downtown proper is just a couple of blocks over on Bull St, the trolley stop is also super close.
