Richard Webb Jr. House

208 West 37th Street, Savannah, GA, USA


Only two months after HSF acquired this grand Free-Classic Queen Anne style house to save it, it was the victim of a major fire. HSF was heartbroken at the resulting damage, and was told by multiple sources that the house was beyond saving. After several months of careful study, consulting with engineers, and the strategic efforts of our partner Emergent Structures, we are pleased to announce this historic house will be saved. HSF is seeking a very special preservation-minded buyer to carry out this unique rehabilitation. Due to the extent of the damage, HSF will work closely with the new owner to execute a faithful and detailed restoration of both the exterior and interior of the property. Miraculously, several original elements were spared such as the hardwood floors, pocket doors, and most of the original staircase; as well as exterior siding, brackets, double front doors, and porch posts. This spacious single-family house, with high ceilings and well proportioned rooms, can once again become the landmark home it once was. Public open houses will be held on: Saturday, July 27th, 9 a.m. to Noon or by appointment. If you have questions, please contact Historic Properties Coordinator, Ryan Arvay at [email protected] or (912) 233-7787.
