This charming Garden Apartment faces out to Troup Square, which has a fascinating Armillary Sphere held up by six tortoises. Fully renovated, Finn’s Retreat still has many historic details intact, including the decorative fireplace, original exposed brick, rustic ceiling beams, and gorgeous wide-plank oak flooring. Where a carriage house once stood, there is now a private parking space in the rear perfect for guests driving into Savannah.
You’ll enter through a black, wrought iron gate into a hallway which opens into the front sitting room. There’s plenty of comfortable seating and a large, flat screen TV is hiding within the armoire. The galley-style kitchen has new appliances and is fully equipped with everything you’d need to prepare a meal at home. Just off the kitchen is the sunroom, alive with light and color. Lots of local art make this an ideal spot relaxing or planning your day. A sliding barn door off the living area leads to the bedroom, which has a queen-sized stately four poster bed. Beyond the bedroom is the newly renovated bathroom with a huge walk in shower, and plenty of closet space.
Just down the street on Lafayette Square is the Andrew-Low House, home to Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the Girl Scouts. You’ll be in a prime location to walk to everything Savannah has to offer, but off the path of late-night revelry.
Why Lucky Savannah Loves this Property:
- The courtyard features beautiful hardscaping and is perfect for relaxing at the end of a busy day of walking, shopping and sightseeing.
- Just past the courtyard is your private parking space.
- Don’t be surprised if you hear the hoofbeats of carriage tours going by on this lovely square!
What is parking like for this home?
Savannah’s historic buildings, squares, and streets have been beautifully preserved through the dedicated efforts of the Historic Savannah Foundation. Founded before the invention of the automobile, parking can be limited.
This unit includes a private parking space located at the rear of the property. Additional vehicles will need to be park on the street, which may be metered or non-metered. You may also park in a nearby garage, or purchase a parking pass at the Visitor Information Center located on MLK Jr., Blvd. This information and more is provided for our guests in our confirmation email upon booking.
