Renovation Turns Ship Museum into Modern Riverfront Manse

Have a nomination for a jaw-dropping listing that would make a mighty fine House of the Day? Get thee to the tipline and send us your suggestions. We'd love to see what you've got.

Location: Savannah, Ga.
Price: $3,350,000
The Skinny: Inside a building that dates from 1892, set on the banks of the Savannah River, this home is the product of a renovation that replaced the "Ships of the Sea Museum" with 4,500 square feet of modern interiors. Organized around a grand spiral staircase, the three-bed, three-bath house is capped with a sprawling roof terrace and glassy penthouse, while the exterior walls still display the historic arched windows befitting a 19th-century structure. The place certainly has it's quirks—and it's not for the modest—but it is still surprising to see the house near its third year on the market without a sale. The price is now $3.35M, $100K more than it was back in 2009 when this place was first listed.
