Gordonston

19 Aug

Gordonston is the newest neighborhood in Savannah to be named to the National Register of Historic Places. As you may or may not know, Gordonston was named for the noted family that developed it, The Gordon Family. The most famous member of the family, Juliette Gordon Low, was the founder of The Girl Scouts. At the time it was developed, it was accessible by the street car line which ran on Kinzie Avenue toward Thunderbolt. Homes here include a variety of architecture including stunning examples of Neo-Classical, Colonial Revival, and my favorite, Arts and Crafts. Gordonston is roughly bounded by Gwinett Street on the North, Skidaway on the South, Goebel Avenue on the West, and Pennsylvania on the East.

The area is sweet as can be, and tends to slip under the radar for many buyers. It is full of charm and in a convenient location.

    Is the brick house with the picket fence in the photo for sale? What is the asking price on it?
