Palm Key

24 Jan

I feel I have been a little quiet lately, but there is a reason. I have been hard at work behind the scenes, helping to bring a new project to light. I was introduced to an amazing place, a real jewel of the earth and I am so fortunate to be part of it.

Palm Key is located in Ridgeland South Carolina…. which doesn’t necessarily sound exciting, but it might just change your life. I am in the process of creating a new website with loads of information.

Here is a taste of what’s to come….click me.

The Landings

10 Sep

The Landings is an exclusive, gated community with it’s own zip code!. Set against the background of coastal Georgia (Skidaway Island) with 6 golf courses throughout ( designed by Arnold Palmer, Tom Fazio, Arthur Hills, and Willard Byrd) , this is a lifestyle community to say the least. The amenities include 2 marinas, 3 tennis facilities, fitness center, 4 swimming pools, 40 miles walking/biking trails, dog park and fine dining. Home prices start in the 300’s, and lots are still available.

The Historic Landmark District

27 Aug

The original city plan was developed by General Oglethorpe. Oglethorpe’s plan consisted of 6 original wards; with a public square at the center of each– and eventually grew to 24 squares. The Historic District is bounded by the Savannah River on the North, Gaston on the South, and East Broad and MLK on sides. The architecture in this area ranges from brick row houses, high style Regency designs, Gothic, Queen Anne, & Greek Revivals. Many of these dwellings have been preserved or restored and command a much higher price tag.

The home in the picture has 3 kitchens, 5 bedrooms, and can function as a very large home, or 3 separate residences. The best part– it’s under $850,000!

The Victorian District

27 Aug

The Victorian District

Is an area developed from 1870 to 1910. In 1869 a streetcar system was installed. The boundaries are roughly East Broad on the East, MLK on the West, Anderson Lane on the South and Gwinett St. on the North. It is here where we start to notice the lack of parks or square between the grids, and have the patch of grass between street and sidewalk, and small gardens in front of the homes. The homes here are beautifully embellished with ornate details. Sadly, with the mass production of the automobile, also cam a depression in the area as residents were able to drive out to suburban areas. However, active revitalization is underway. Prices in the area vary.

Ardsley Park

19 Aug

Ardsley Park & Chatham Crescent is one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Savannah. It’s home to an eclectic blend of people and architectural styles. Ardsley Park is located in Midtown Savannah and is close to shopping, restaurants, hospitals and anything else you can think of.

Ardsley Park was developed starting in 1910 alongside the Chatham Crescent area, an adjacent planned community. The homes here are as varied as the residents who inhabit them. There are many textbook renderings of homes popular in the twentieth century on through the spectrum of local interpretation.

There are lots of green parks, some with playgrounds, that are loved by the residents. Home prices in the area have a huge range from the upper 100’s to just under a million dollars.

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.
