Holiday Rental House
This grand 5-bedroom home, located on the most famous residential street of Savannah, was built in 1883 for the former Chairman of the Chatham County Commission, Joseph J. Dale. A beautiful Italianate exterior with foot-thick walls encloses 4200 square feet of living space on 3 stories. Careful renovations combine modern refinement with the original style. The main entrance is on the parlor level, with bedrooms on both the top floor above and garden level below. A porch adorned with wooden flourishes covers the front door. You can spot the occasional horse-drawn carriage from here. Next to the entrance, a plaque designates the historic landmark status of the property. The home boasts 12-foot ceilings, decorative fireplaces, and heart pine floors that shine from one level to the other.

A beautiful Italianate exterior with foot-thick walls encloses 4200 square feet of living space on 3 stories. Careful renovations combine modern refinement with the original style. The main entrance is on the parlor level, with bedrooms on both the top floor above and garden level below. A porch adorned with wooden flourishes covers the front door. You can spot the occasional horse-drawn carriage from here. Next to the entrance, a plaque designates the historic landmark status of the property. The home boasts 12-foot ceilings, decorative fireplaces, and heart pine floors that shine from one level to the other. Reproduction furnishings fit the vintage of the house while providing comfortable relaxation. An archway frames the formal dining room and table with seating for 10. The soft twinkle of a crystal chandelier is a perfect mood setter for any occasion. At the back of the house is a gourmet kitchen outfitted with Kitchen Craft cupboards, two farmers porcelain sinks, sub-zero refrigerator, and a Thermador commercial stove. A breakfast area seats six and a balcony overlooks the courtyard. Head up the banister stairway to find 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms on the top floor. The front room contains a king bed and comfortable chairs where you can read while looking out on the live oaks of Jones. A middle bedroom includes a queen bed, armoire, and skylight. The 3rd bedroom is in the back, decorated with golden wall coverings and a queen bed. It overlooks the garden and enjoys soft morning light. This floor also has a balcony from which you can survey the surrounding residential rooftops. Downstairs from the parlor floor is a garden-level ground floor with two spacious bedrooms, a TV den, a full bathroom, and a kitchenette. The front bedroom contains a king bed and dark wood furnishings. The garden-facing back bedroom contains a queen bed and a view of the lion-head fountain. Garden level French doors open onto the flower-and-vine laden courtyard area behind the house. It features two Lion Head fountains, one of which is the centerpiece of a tall ivy-draped wall. Outdoor chairs and tables are perfect for coffee, or a nice lunch on a beautiful sunny day. As for the address, Jones is the premier residential street in Savannah's historic district. An article from USA Today describes its status: Like the consummate Southern Belle, this street appears in every regional and national beauty contest, and often wins. Live oaks festooned with Spanish moss tower over the cobblestone street. Flower beds and perfectly trimmed hedges neatly border historic houses - everything in seemingly perfect condition. No pets and no smoking allowed. Wifi available. Please note that a longer nightly minimum may be required during peak season dates, holidays or special events. Please inquire about two night stays as there are times we can accommodate. Additional fees, such as tax and cleaning, may apply. SVR 00385, SVR 00386More
