Take a visit to the historic districts of Savannah, Georgia, and you can’t help but notice the city’s incredible architecture. Elegant homes abound, and the latest to cross our desk is this six-bedroom, eight-bath home overlooking Savannah’s picturesque Forsyth Park.

Called the Mills B. Lane House, the home was built in 1907 in the Georgian Revival style. Curb appeal is no problem here, as the stately exterior boasts Ionic columns, a “Swan’s neck” pediment, and grand shuttered windows with splayed lintels.

Upon entering the home guests are welcomed by 29 hand painted murals in a grand entrance hall. Elsewhere, pocket doors open to two formal parlors, a ballroom-size dining room, and a library with built-in bookshelves.

Beyond the home’s original features, the star of the property is a picture-perfect garden veranda in the rear. A brick patio and in-ground pool create a private oasis to cool off in the summer heat, and a pool house adds to the charm.

Ready to settle down with this Georgian jewel? 26 East Gaston Street is on the market now for $6,750,000.
