Overview

Beach Institute Condo Rental Photos and Description

3 bed, 2 bath 2nd floor condo near Forsyth Park, walking distance to downtown.

Spacious and affordable 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Savannah condo located in Historic District near Forsyth Park. There is always plenty of free non-metered street parking in front of the condo.

This property is in an excellent location for attending events anywhere in the city. Great for families, weekend getaways, bachelorette get-together, happenings at Forsyth Park, attending wedding events, holiday celebrations, shopping, sightseeing, golf excursions and an easy drive to the beach at Tybee Island.

The property is in the Landmark Historic District and is close to everything that Savannah has to offer yet outside the congestion and overnight parking issues of the main tourist area. Perfect for sightseeing, either on foot or by car or use the free shuttle service (for information on the free shuttle do a Google search on "Connect-On-the-Dot"). There is even a full service grocery (Kroger) just a short walk away.

I also have a First floor (street level) 3 bedroom, 2 bath unit at the same location.

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.

Mary Pizzimenti purchased this condo in 2006

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.

Just what we'd hope it would be...

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect location for our family union. We rented two of Mary's units, one upstairs and the other down. She is very enthusiastic and very knowledgeable of a variety of places to visit & see in Savannah. Both kitchens were well stocked with a variety of pots & pans, which we greatly appreciated...and Kroger is less than a five minute walk. Parking was never a hassle, as we were there for a holiday weekend. It was quiet, yet close to everything..best of both worlds..,plus, Uber-ing was just minutes away from our desired locations; very cost-effective...another win-win!

Beautiful and immaculate.

  • 5 of 5

I think it has recently been remodeled so everything was fresh and clean...yet it still maintained its charm. It was the perfect fit for 5 sisters. You can walk to grocery, restaurants, and free bus service...or you can use uber. I highly recommend this property.

Absolutely beautiful Savannah property!

  • 5 of 5

This was the nicest property we have ever stayed at through VRBO! The recent renovation was so well done! We loved the spacious bedrooms, especially the Master. There is a large kitchen table which is perfect for a group of 6 for meals and playing cards, games or just hanging out. The unit is so clean and beautifully decorated! We will definitely stay here again! The owner got back to me immediately when I had questions. The grocery store and Forsythe Park are only a few short blocks from the unit. Thanks for a wonderful stay in Savannah! We loved it!
