Notable historic buildings and luxury real estate line the streets, but this beautiful three story town house stuck out for its interesting origin.
Once the Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum, this structure, which dates back to 1892, has been transformed into a 4,500-square-foot waterfront property complete with panoramic views of the Savannah River and Emmett Park.
Stepping into the expansive living space located on the main level, a commanding spiral glass staircase rises up from the lower level and reaches all the way to the roof terrace. A library with custom built-ins, a sleek gourmet kitchen, two gas fireplaces, a powder room and dining area also reside in this open floor plan with the building’s original 17-foot tin ceilings above and dark wood flooring below.
All three bedrooms showcase the character of the building with the original exposed beams and brick walls. They each contain their own bathroom with modern fixtures and the master suite has a smaller adjoining room that is currently being used for an office.
Take the stairs or private elevator up to the rooftop wraparound terrace with dramatic glass dome. Enjoy sweeping views of the city skyline, passing ships in the river and breathtaking sunsets on two levels of decking, which also include a gas grill and potting shed.
This Savannah home is located at 504 East Bay Street and is being listed with Sotheby’s International Realty for $3,500,000. Visit SothebysRealty.com to learn more.
