Location: Savannah, Georgia
A charming colonial revival built circa 1895 has come on the market in Savannah, Georgia. Classic details abound, including crown molding, window shutters, windows with tracery, multiple fireplaces, hardwood floors, and period radiators, with rooms generously proportioned and outfitted, too.
A porticoed entrance leads to a foyer, off which a formal parlor and further sitting room—both with fireplaces—are set on one side, and a formal dining room on the other (also with a fireplace).
The period kitchen with breakfast nook could use a major overhaul, but otherwise it is quaint in its own way. An elegant staircase leads upstairs, where there are four spacious bedrooms including a master with a fireplace, and another room with an adjacent study and exercise area.
An 1956 addition ups the original livable space of 4,463 square feet by approximately 1,810 square feet and encompasses an office, while an upstairs apartment with kitchen above the two-story carriage house and garage adds an additional 294 square feet, for a grand total of 6,567 square feet of heated space.
Although the residence boasts many lovely details, it is sold “as is,” with warts and all, according to the listing. Located at 122 East 36th Street, it’s offered at $980,000 and would make a great long-term fixer-upper project.
