Description

Built in 1813 for the Reverend James Russell. This house was part of the original Methodist Episcopal Congregation property and is one of the oldest houses in Savannah.  This freestanding property on a corner lot also served as home to the City of Savannah Court Chambers in the 1800’s.  The house is an outstanding example of the Federalist style of architecture.  The tabby sidewalk is one of the remaining examples to be found in Savannah.  The home survived the Great Fire of 1819 which destroyed approximately 450 buildings in Savannah.

Located in the highly coveted Historic District, you are just steps away from many of Savannah’s famous restaurants & shops. The upper level serves as the primary residence or an ideal pied-à-terre for those wanting an easy Savannah getaway. This floor features a master suite, living room, dining room & kitchen with cozy den and is highlighted by original heart pine floors, distinctive moldings, 3 fireplaces & 11-foot ceilings.

Opportunities abound on the lower level with 2 separate entries, full kitchen, 2 baths and boasts 3 grand fireplaces, original Savannah brick & beautiful exposed beams. Possible options could include dividing into an efficiency and apartment, office, in-law suite, convert to single family residence or whatever suits you! Spacious back deck, courtyard and 2 car garage with half bath complete this rare offering!
