Real Estate Details
The finest in Savannah living is evidenced in this beautifully appointed property. This historic treasure has a uniquely gracious atmosphere, due largely to the generously proportioned rooms and the abundance of architectural details. A stately four-story townhouse, the home was built in 1854 for prominent Savannah businessman Jesse Mount. Enter the home via the graceful entry into a welcoming entrance hall with sweeping three story staircase and proceed into the light-filled parlor and formal dining room. Notice the some of the original panes of glass in the windows overlooking tree-lined West Jones Street. The parlor and dining room hold two of the house's many fireplaces, all of which have been outfitted with gas logs for convenience and instant atmosphere. The kitchen is a chef's dream with its Aga gas stove, Subzero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher, porcelain farm sink and ice maker. An abundance of cabinetry and counter space allows for plenty of storage and culinary prep work. There is room by the decorative corner fireplace for a table and chairs or banquette. The French doors in the kitchen open onto the expansive upper deck with room for a grill and outdoor dining, all the while overlooking the charming brick paved courtyard. One story up is the master bedroom floor, which is composed of a library/sitting room as well as master bedroom with ensuite bath containing a soaking tub, separate shower, double vanities and the Bosch washer and dryer. The trunk room, which was originally used to store the traveling trunks, is currently an office but could be additional closet space if one so chooses. The top floor contains two additional bedrooms, each with their own bath.
Originally the kitchen was located on the garden level with its brick floors and beamed ceilings. Notice the two large brick fireplaces built for cooking the household meals. Converted into a separate apartment, there is a living room, middle sitting room, one bedroom, two full baths and a renovated kitchen.
The carriage house contains a studio apartment, a two car garage, and a workshop area with a second washer and dryer. It is accessed from either Jones Lane or from the main house via the kitchen deck.
