Own a beautiful piece of Savannah’s majestic history

Built in 1872 for George W. Saussy, this Second Empire mansion features intricate exterior ironwork and an eclectic combination of motifs. High ceilings soar above an interior in great move-in condition. On the first floor, an elegant living room and dining room lead to an oversized granite and stainless-steel kitchen, which would be any chef’s dream. Sporting three stories, with heart pine floors throughout, there are four spacious bedrooms, including a sitting room and room of closets off the master bedroom, and two and a half bathrooms.

There is also a “trunk” room which provides ample flexibility for a home office and more. One cannot help but linger outdoors in the plush courtyard adorned with both native species and exotic plants. The courtyard’s circular design has a central raised brick bed anchoring the space and a wide range of shrubs, trees and bushes that blossom year-round. A detached garage provides off-street parking for one car as well as a large storage area.
