Cottage on Taylor Street in Savannah
1 Bedroom1 Bath
What you DON'T see is what you get. You could walk by the front of this East Taylor St. property every day and not notice the hidden away cottage out behind.
An artist who lived in the main house built his studio at the rear of the property under and behind a big shade tree. It has since been expanded into the Cottage by the addition of sleeping quarters, kitchenette with electric hot plate and small under the counter refrigerator, and full bath with whirlpool tub. The Cottage feels like new construction with recessed lighting, carpeted bedroom, glass tile trim in the bath, and upscale furnishings including a sofa sleeper for extra guests.
This block of Taylor Street has large rear yards, and here that has been transformed into an "architectural" deck area created by Yancey Seibert, a leading Savannah-based designer. The yard features bamboo plantings, water feature, a 5-foot fountain, and brick walkways around an oversized two-level lighted deck under a gracious tree.
The park-like yard is shared with a 3-bedroom townhouse and 2-bedroom townhome at the front of the property. Either or both of them can be reserved with this property to accommodate larger groups such as for weddings, family reunions, and business group travel. Nearby: One and a half blocks to lovely Whitefield Square with the beautiful gazebo, and a short walk to Savannah's famous Clary's for breakfast or lunch, and to the Firefly Cafe on neighboring Troup Square; close to beautiful Forsyth Park, Mercer House, and Kroger's, the District's only full-service supermarket. Lots of unrestricted parking right out front on the well-lighted street.
The 500 block of East Taylor is a feast of architectural diversity, with several recent restorations and renovations. Taking her place among two-story wood homes, cute cottages, and impressive brick townhouses, The Cottage is right in the middle of one of Savannah's many interesting quiet side streets, convenient to everything in the Historic District.
