About Mary Pizzimenti

My husband and I enjoy spending time in Savannah as we love the southern hospitality, friendliness of the residents and beauty of the city.

Why Mary Pizzimenti chose Savannah

We love Savannah and all of its history and charm. The genuine friendliness of the residents and visitors is second to none. It has great restaurants, entertainment, shopping, nearby beaches and countless other activities. With some 200 city-wide festivals and events each year there is always something to do and someplace to go.

What makes this condo unique

Place yourself in Savannah's rich history. This property was completely renovated to help preserver the historic charm and significance that keeps Savannah a unique and beautiful city. The exterior maintains the period correct architecture while the interior has all the modern conveniences and comforts.

The original structure has been described as Vernacular Neoclassical Revival, local interpretation of a combination of Georgian Revival and Edwardian architecture. With its pediment porches and two-story porticos supported by round columns, the building has been formally identified as being of 'significant value as a Classical Revival apartment house'.

Originally set aside as 'Garden Lots' in General Oglethorpe's original town plan of Savannah, the land would become known as the Beach Institute Neighborhood. Early records find that in 1782 the land, named Fairlawn Plantation, was a working rice plantation. In 1853 with the advent of the Savannah & Albany Railroad, construction of Savannah's East Side began in earnest. Workers for the railroad were in need of housing and developers capitalized on that need by developing land tracts slated for building lots.

Of interest, is that a single African American woman, Mary Ellen Richardson, wholly developed the property. She owned the property from 1868 until her death in 1929. Somewhere between 1898 and 1916 the original structure was replaced with the building that stands to this day.

Mary Richardson's also built the Carpenter Italianate row house as well as a single-family dwelling in the same area.

Great place. Close to parks & river!

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 couples and we had plenty of space. Large guest bathroom. I would recommend packing a small suitcase because of stairs.

The place is a great location to everything that we wanted to do.

  • 3 of 5

This place is in a great location. It is only 5 minutes to River Walk, and a short walk to Kroger, and Starbucks. The only problemwe had is the walls are thin. You can hear everything outside in the main bedroom. I woke up every night around 4ish to some bus noise or train noise or car noise. All in all we had a great time. We did the Segway tour, went to Tybee Island, did some shopping at the outlets, and drank absinthe.

Owner's Response: Thank you for confirming the unit is in a great location with easy access to everything that Savannah has to offer. Sorry about the street noise but Savannah is a very busy city; there will always be street noise. There seems to be a recurring theme that the walls are “thin” but the building meets or exceeds all modern code requirements for construction in the Historic District (the entire building was renovated in 2008). If I could do it again I would have used soundproofing insulation instead of standard insulation in the walls to help reduce the sound issues that one should expect in such a vibrant city. There may be quieter places but few if any offer a clean and spacious three bedroom two bath accommodation in the Historic District at such a reasonable price.

Nice home, good location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with for a Bachelorette Weekend. Fit 6 comfortably, the living room is a little tight for all 6 to sit but we easily overflowed into the dining room. I was concerned about the thin walls, as others mentioned, but we had no trouble with this. House is very close to Kroger grocery store and Dollar Tree. About an $8 Uber ride to city market/river street area. Easy walking distance to Forsyth Park. We really enjoyed our stay.

Nice apartment! Walkable to all downtown sites.

  • 5 of 5

Bedroooms are comfortable. Well equipped kitchen. Grocery store is two blocks away. The living room is small (maybe furniture could be rearranged) but comfortable. Parking is very convenient. We enjoyed our stay and would have liked to stay longer!
