Originally commissioned by noteworthy real estate investor Eliza Ann Jewett, this circa 1843 Historic Landmark District townhome is a true Savannah treasure. The 6,000-square-foot Greek Revival property was meticulously renovated by Hansen Architects over three years, resulting in a seamless blend of historic character and modern conveniences. The stately brick exterior on West Harris Street features a classic portico leading to the home's second-floor entrance through a solid wood door. From the 10' wide entry foyer, find original wood railings along the sweeping staircase, 12 1/2 inch baseboards, and wide plank heart pine floors (c. 1843) that continue throughout the home. Generous living and dining rooms showcase intricate mantels made from Egyptian marble. A thoughtfully placed pocket door and "disappearing" doors allow the dining room to open to the living room and kitchen for gatherings or segment the rooms for privacy. A bank of windows lets in an abundance of natural light in the spacious kitchen and overlooks the lush enclosed garden. The three-stop elevator can be taken down to the garden/street level, where there is a charmingly rustic informal living space with exposed brick, wooden beams, and two original fireplaces. A desirable retreat, this floor is complete with a full bathroom, wet bar, and high-quality folding door access to the covered patio. The four generous bedrooms in the main house are located on the third and fourth floors. The primary has five closets, a bathroom with heated floors and towel bar, double vanities, and a separate water closet and bidet. An additional ensuite, currently functioning as a study, leads to a lovely balcony. The two additional bedrooms on the fourth floor boast breathtaking views of St. John's steeple. The carriage house, with street and courtyard doors, allows for one car to pull through to park in the courtyard, while another can be kept in the garage. Above, a one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment with an efficiency kitchen provides additional guest space. Less than a block from Madison Square, this four-story home is a beautifully preserved architectural gem in the heart of Savannah.
