Modern conveniences await in this beautifully appointed, newly renovated Southern home nestled just off one of Savannah's famous, beautiful squares.

The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to cook a romantic dinner atop stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. The master bedroom features a Queen sized bed, desk area, and a flat screen TV. The master bathroom has a clear glass and marble stand-up shower and a pedestal sink. The living room features plenty of seating around a decorative fireplace with a flatscreen TV and a cozy dining area for two. Outside, you can catch a cool Savannah breeze while sipping sweet Southern tea rocking away the summer nights on the rocking chairs on your back patio.

History
The vacation rental offers everything necessary to enjoy your stay in the historic district of Savannah and has been around for hundreds of years. The home was originally built in 1838 and is the oldest home in Savannah south of Liberty Street. It was built in two stages – the original wood-sided portion (left side) was constructed in 1838 and the stucco portion (right side) was added in 1860. Lewis Bird, a prominent Savannah attorney at the time, began the original construction but sadly perished with his entire family on the Steamship Pulaski when it exploded off the coast of North Carolina and sank on June 14, 1838. Mr. Bird's mother completed the house and later sold it to his law partner Mr. Baldwin who lived in it for many years. As one of the nicer manor homes along Liberty Street in Savannah during the Civil War, the house was seized and occupied by General Sherman’s staff in December 1864 as part of their capture of Savannah during the infamous Sherman’s March to the Sea. Over the years, the house has been a private residence, a boarding house and a neighborhood tavern known as "Harry's Place." By the 1960s, it had deteriorated so badly that homeless people were living in it and it had caught fire several times – yet the house miraculously survived.

The property is ideally situated at the corner of two historic Savannah streets – Liberty Street and Barnard Street and within easy walking distance of the entire Landmark Historic District, including:

My girlfriend and I took our first trip to Savannah via train and stayed in this wonderful rental. We both loved everything about the place, with the location being at the top of the list. We decided not to rent a car during our trip and I was very thankful that we had no need to. Everything was within walking distance, with the exception of Bonaventure Cemetery (~4miles), and there was plenty to keep us entertained. I would absolutely recommend this rental.

Everything about this house is perfect. The location is simply wonderful. It's easy to walk to everything and couldn't have been better. The little touches in the home, like having copies of Forrest Gump and Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil to watch, made it totally comfortable and a great place to rest up after touring Savannah all day. The rooms were clean, big and bright. Parking was convenient and extremely easy (although you really don't need a car in Savannah). I would absolutely stay here again.
