Property descriptionWith its timeless, elegant Italian Renaissance architecture and ideal location on a prime corner lot overlooking the verdant beauty of Forsyth Park, the Walker Mansion stands apart as one of the finest private residences ever offered in Savannah. Originally built between 1906 and 1910, this majestic, freestanding three-story home features an exquisitely restored main residence plus a 1 BR/1 BA carriage house, spectacular wrap-around verandas, original carved mahogany trim and a private elevator with access to all floors.
Built for Captain George P. Walker, the co-founder of Strachan Shipping Co. and successful merchant, this magnificent turnkey home was later purchased by A.E. Clift, the president of the Central Georgia Railway. Infused with dazzling natural light and defined by turn-key elegance, the main residence captures every imaginable luxury for world-class entertaining and offers sweeping views of Forsyth Park. A thoughtful renovation, replete with handsome custom finishes and bright interiors, is absolutely superb. Bespoke interiors defined by fine historic details and breathtaking woodworking make this home truly one-of-a-kind. Completely updated with high-end finishes, this exquisite residence offers multiple indoor and outdoor spaces that are ideal for entertaining in small groups or hosting large-scale receptions.
A grand foyer welcome guests with a triple-tier mahogany staircase, soaring 12-foot ceilings, inlaid heart pine floors and other period details. On the main level, a library with original built-in, glass-front bookcases offers the perfect place to read a book or sip a cocktail. A dining room with crystal chandelier provides spectacular views of Forsyth Park, while a grand living room with mahogany wainscoting serves as an ideal location for quiet family time or elegant events. Additional highlights include original plaster ceiling moldings, fireplaces, mahogany pocket doors and oversized windows with crystalline natural light.
A chef's kitchen, also located on the main level, is made for entertaining with its Calcutta Gold marble countertops, Thermador 6-burner commercial gas range, wine refrigerator, farmhouse-style sink and oval-shaped built-in banquette. The kitchen also offers easy access to a covered outdoor patio/sunroom as well as the stylish formal living room. A home office with classic grasscloth wallpaper is conveniently location on the main level of this impressive residence.
A picture-perfect mahogany staircase leads to the second level, which offers three refined bedrooms with dramatic city views, luxurious baths and a washer/dryer. The primary suite has French doors that lead to a covered veranda offering stunning views of Forsyth Park, plus a large renovated bath with a stone and glass shower and a claw-foot soaking tub. The third floor features a full kitchen with stainless steel appliances, two large bedrooms with cameo-shaped dormer windows, a full bath, living area, washer and dryer, hardwood floors and incredible privacy.
The home's impressive wrap-around verandas and walled courtyard with travertine pavers is ideal for entertaining or relaxing.
