Sumptuous Historic Home For Sale in Savannah

Give a girl a week off and what does she do?  Well she reads blogs and decorating sites and generally tries to reach the end of the internet.  And, for good measure, she peruses a few luxury real estate sites, too.  A visit to Sotheby's real estate site hit the jackpot for me in the first minute.  I found this absolutlely gorgeous historic home for sale in Savannah, Georgia.

The home is listed for $5,500,000, which once you see the pictures, I think you will agree with me that this is a very good value for the money.  It is exquisite and very well done in every way.  The home was built in 1857 and was completely renovated in 2007.  It was designed by New York architect John Norris, who also is credited with designing the Savannah Custom House as well as many other outstanding historical homes in the city.   The house is on the National Register of Historic Places and has won an ASID award.  Other awards include a 2009 award from the Georgia Trust and  a Preservation award in 2006.

Beautiful, Charleston-style piazzas.  I assume this is the street-level entry.

And another

The entry hall and stairway.  I love the beautiful choice of paint colors in this home.  I would love to know the designer.  I think with the plethora of awards he or she should at least get a mention!

Dining room and sitting room
The mouldings and millwork in the house are just beautiful and look to be original.

Sitting room or family room

Beautiful updated and modern kitchen
I love the farmhouse sink and range hood.

A lovely and soothing bedroom.
I wonder if this is the master.

This bathroom is so current and yet so appropriate for a historical house.
I love the tub, the huge custom shower, and the cabinetry.
It seems that no corners were cut anywhere in this home.

Gorgeous spacious closet

Beautifully appointed office

Manicured gardens and courtyard

The home has 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, and a 3-car garage.  It includes a private elevator and guest house!

(If you have a few million and are interested, go to Sotheby's site.  The web ID# is 4201277.)

Absolutely fab entry! I am an Atlanta girl by birth and I was raised there so I am defintely biased about anything in Georgia.
Beautiful home and I agree it would be nice to know who the designer was.
