Unique Circa 1853 Home on Historic Jones Street
Welcome to Historic 213 East Jones Street, a fully renovated semi-detached town home with a floor plan unlike most any other house in the Historic Landmark District. This beautiful home is surrounded by the Live Oaks and the cobblestones of Historic Jones Street, arguably the most beautiful residential street in America.
As you approach the exterior of the home, you will see the extra wide high stoop, with low stoop adjoining houses, allowing for extra privacy. This home offers interesting spatial qualities because of the porches built into the six foot wide passage. A true front porch, which is unusual downtown.
Enter the foyer to gleaming Heart of Pine floors and light on three sides of the foyer. Abundant natural light floods almost every room in the house. The wide hall and rooms on a full 30x100 foot lot allow for lots of space for extra seating areas not found in most Downtown Savannah homes.
The original Heart of Pine floors continue throughout this home, including the beautiful front parlor featuring the first of six gas fireplaces, a high ceiling with a lovely chandelier, and charming multi-paned windows overlooking Historic Jones Street. If you love fine antiques, this is the perfect setting to showcase your treasures.
The high ceilings continue in the separate dining room with the second gas fireplace, flanked on each side by two lovely built-ins with glass display cabinets.
Next you will see the nicely-laid-out kitchen made to live in with double French doors leading out to a wonderful deck and a beautiful courtyard below. Features include a built-in bookcase so your cookbooks are within easy reach, stainless steel appliances, recessed lighting, a breakfast area with bar, abundant cabinetry and a side door leading to the side porch built into the passageway.
As you ascend the staircase to the top floor, notice to the west are several access points to the six foot side passageway. The master bedroom includes a fireplace and adjoins a beautiful master bath built into a former sleeping porch area with lots of south facing glass, views of the Westley Monumental church spires, double vanities, a separate shower, a claw foot tub and a 15 light glass door leading to the top floor deck area. The front second bedroom features a lovely fireplace and lighted ceiling fan. There is also a top floor study that could serve as a fifth bedroom or nursery with a Jack-and-Jill bath between. Very few houses in Savannah have a room like this -- built into the passage -- making the front of the house four windows wide.
Back down and outside the kitchen, relax on the rear deck or descend the stairs to the spacious and private courtyard with brick patio, mature shade trees, lush foliage and ivy covered privacy walls. A decorative courtyard gate leads you to the parking area and the lane, providing plenty of room for three cars.
Downstairs is a two bedroom garden level apartment with cheerful front living room and fireplace, a spacious hearth kitchen with generous cabinetry and second fireplace, a Jack-and-Jill style bath between the two sleeping areas, and a door leading to the courtyard. This separate apartment offers opportunity for rental income, guests or an in-law unit.
Come see this inviting home located on one of the best blocks of Jones Street in Savannah's Historic Landmark District.
