Things we love about this property crush:

From the outside, this Savannah home exudes Southern charm with its pretty pastel blue exterior, white trim, and a sprawling wraparound porch that’s eager to play the consummate host for lazy Sunday afternoons involving rocking chairs and lemonade sipping. But step inside and you’ll be surprised with thoughtful features throughout the home, including beautiful hardwood, an ornate staircase, and elegant chandeliers expertly juxtaposed with modern light fixtures.

The gorgeous 1920s-era Victorian home is 2,562 square feet and is on a 6,360-square-foot lot in the historic Benjamin Van Clark neighborhood. It’s just a few minutes from downtown Savannah, which, btw, is having a moment right now thanks to the hip restaurants, bars, galleries, boutiques, and Spanish moss-draped historic squares.

While this home has been fully renovated, the makeover preserved some of the home’s old world craftsmanship. The original hardwood floors, unique trim, and pocket doors were restored. The HVAC, plumbing, electrical, appliances, and fixtures have been updated.

Home chefs will delight in the marble island in the kitchen and butcher block countertops.

And if you’re loving the tiny home movement, but not ready to commit to an ittyy-bitty lifestyle, you’ll get the best of both worlds. There’s a carriage house on stilts on the property that could be turned into an Instagram-worthy nook for slumber parties, an artist studio, or an office.

One last surprise: Check out the standalone bathtub that will be a great place to hold a grand finale to your self-care Sundays, with a nearby built-in wine holder, err… shelves. Although, the modern shower and Moroccan-inspired tiling isn’t a shabby spot to unwind, either.
