About this listing
Charming 1895 Townhouse located at Chatham Square. This property has all the modern amenities and yet retains the charm of the historical home it is. Located within easy walking distance to all the sights and attractions of the historic district.
This circa 1895 townhome is located on the corner of beautiful, serene Chatham Square. Originally built by Matilda Heitmann, this residence is a registered Savannah Historic Foundation dwelling. The current owner completed extensive renovations and has now decided to make this property available for your vacation getaway. This beautifully decorated home has been lovingly restored while retaining a sense of comfort. It is truly a “home away from home”.
Chatham Square was recently magically transformed to the 1860s as Robert Redford shot scenes for his latest video production, “The Conspirator”, based on a true story about a woman eventually hanged for her part in the Lincoln assassination conspiracy. Looking out from this townhome’s parlor windows, it was easy to imagine a time over a 150 years ago as the ladies in long dresses and bonnets, gentlemen in their top hats, and horse drawn carriages milled around under the giant, moss covered live oaks of Chatham Square.
This upscale townhouse is located within Savannah's legitimate Landmark Historic District, south of River Street, north of Gaston Street, east of MLK Jr. Boulevard, and west of Broad Street. Translation: You are actually in easy walking distance to everywhere you wish to be. Or, a carriage will pick you up from your doorsteps. Call a pedicab to take you to or from dinner. It is all easy to do from this great location.
Whether you are visiting Savannah to enjoy the stunning architecture of a time past or to visit landmarks made famous in movies, this townhome is perfectly located for your exploration. For example, leave your front door and walk two blocks west and you will be looking at the Mercer-Williams House made famous in the movie, “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil”. One block up from there is Forsyth Park. You’ll find yourself drawn back there over and over again. If you want to walk down one of the most beautiful streets in the world, leave your “home away from home” walk across Chatham Square and you are one block away from Jones Street.
Whatever you choose to do while in Savannah, the townhome on Chatham Square will be a quiet oasis which you will look forward to returning to each day and not want to leave when your stay is over.

This was our first time in Savannah and We really felt at home :-) Cindy was a very good host, she welcomed us upon arrival and showed us the house, she accomodated any requests we might have and was discrete the rest of the time which was great for us. The quality in this house is definitly there up to every little details...no cheap plastics because it's a rental! Which is very important to us , great chynna and kitchen ustentils, great beds and linens... it felt like a family member in Europe had loaned us their vacation home! Oh and the Location is fantastic, we walked everywhere or hoped on a Pedicab to get anywhere we wanted into town...the kids loved it...it's magical at night and it's an easy ride to the beach :-) we'll definitely be back!
Fantastic! Cindy was beyond welcoming and warm as we arrived in Savannah. The house exceeded all expectations! Cindy also provided some fabulous lunch and dinner recommendations! We can't wait to stay at the home again, as my wife and I decided there is SO MUCH room that we need to come back with friends to enjoy all the house has to offer!
Cindy was a great host - met us on arrival and took us through all the rooms explaining where everything was and how it all worked. The house was fully stocked with all ameneties such as towels, hairdryers, full kitchenware.
The house was beautiful and perfect for 2 couples. The house is in a fantastic area on a park and 10-15 min walk to all bars/cafe.
Wonderful experience, and accurately advertised. Great location and value. Lovely out door garden. Highly recommend and would stay again.
The home was fantastic with a great location. Cindy met us at the door and couldn't be nicer. She showed us around the house and answered any questions we had. The location was perfect for walking anywhere in Savannah. The home itself was beautiful and we had everything we could ever need. Would highly recommend this home and location for a Savannah visit.
The 1895 Town Home on Chatham Square is perfection. This gorgeous home has been expertly renovated and I dare anyone to find even one tiny detail that has been overlooked! We were greeted by our cheerful host Cindy who kindly provided advice and a quick overview for our first stay in Savannah. A major highlight was the 1895 house! We enjoyed coming back to "our square" and having tea on the patio each afternoon. Could not have been more comfortable here. Will definitely book again.
