Location: Savannah, Georgia
This classic Savannah home boasts an impressive curb presence characterized by a double staircase, sweeping front porch and second-floor balcony, and detailed millwork. Built in 1880 for lumber merchant Albert S. Bacon, the 5,091-square-foot residence has since been carefully restored.
Its sheer size allows for multiple-family living, as there are, in addition to the main house, two garden level apartments and a carriage house apartment. On the main floor, mahogany and pine floors line the foyer. A formal sitting room is found off this space and features tall mahogany windows and other restored woodwork details. A formal dining follows, where a fireplace and built-ins, plus tall windows, make it a lovely space to dine. French doors lead to a family room and office, and then a renovated custom kitchen follows. There is access to a screened porch for year-round outdoor living.
Upstairs are two large bedrooms, including the master suite, both with fireplaces and their own Carrara marble baths. The master even includes a dressing room, which used to be the main home’s third bedroom. Down on the garden level are two apartments or guest suites, each with its own kitchen, while the carriage house also features a kitchen, bringing the total count to six bedrooms and six baths. As a bonus, an elevator connects all three floors.
As for outdoor space, a brick and bluestone patio with a lion head fountain creates a private oasis. Located at 312 East Huntingdon Street, the property is offered at $1.595 million.
