Lovely 1870's Estate includes Manor/Carriage House

"Even Prettier than the Pictures! We rented the Taylor Estate for our group of singles & couples. We were 12 total with plenty of room to spare! The house was beautiful - every room is like a dream! I couldn't believe it when we got there - so much better than I had imagined. We had a fabulous weekend - we walked everywhere we wanted to go. We'll stay at Taylor Estate every time we're in Savannah.

Located in the heart of Savannah's picturesque downtown, simply park your car in the roomy driveway (fits up to 4 cars)... and throw away the keys! Everything downtown is at your doorstep. But be warned.....as lovely ...Read more

Additional Location Information

Located in the original GA colony established in 1763 ( now known as the Landmark Historic District), the Taylor Estate was built in 1870. It consists of the three- story, 4 BR/2.5BA Manor and it's self-standing, two-story 2BR/2BA Carriage House located behind it. In 2001, the Estate was lovingly restored by the current owner. The Carriage House was renamed Taylor Cottage. Initially it was rented out long term and the owners family lived in the Manor. But in 2007, both homes became one and have been rented out together as the Taylor Estate vacation rental. The private four car driveway adjoins the Cottage and Manor. There is additional parking on Taylor Street in front of the Estate as well. The Courtyards of both the Manor and Cottage open onto the driveway and are filled with lush foliage and furnished. Combined, the Manor and its Cottage form the 6BR/4.5BA Taylor Estate. The Landmark Historic District is 1 mile x 1 mile in size with the Estate located in the southeast quadrant between River Street (with its souvenier shops, weekend street faires and restaurants) to the north & Forsyth Park (perfect for picnics, jogging, tennis or basketball, farmers market on Saturdays and enjoying it's frequent festivals) lies to the south. Museums, Restaurants, Cafes, Historic Home Tours, Shops and antique stores surround you as do the famous Savannah Squares (each unique with a statue/monument and lined with live oaks dripping spanish moss). While smaller, upscale bars/restaurants are close by ...Taylor Street leaves the blaring bars & craziness of Congress and River Streets several blocks northwest to allow peaceful rest at night. You'll waken to chirping birds and squirrels vying for nuts in the branches of the gnarled magnolia tree which fronts the entrance to the Estate. Iron gas-lights stretch down further east on Taylor Street toward Beasely Park where locals let their dogs enjoy the freedom of a fenced dog run, enjoy soccer or the softball field and take their kids to the newly renovated playground. 1 Block to the west lies Whitfield Square. While every Savannah Square is unique, nearby Whitfield Square has its charming gazebo which is a favorite site for outdoor weddings. Across the street from the Taylor Estate is the St Benedict Catholic Church, c1800's and it unfolds across several blocks to the south. The beach is a short 20 min drive. For the past three centuries, everything in the historic downtown district from River Street, City Market, Museums, Shops and Cafe/Restaurants remain walking distance from the front door of the home.
A recent guest remarked... "We loved it! You walk THROUGH everything as you walk TO everything!" For those that don't wish to walk...call a Pedicab (a bicycle cab) to pick you up, hop on the free downtown shuttle bus, or take an on/off trolley tour. Trolley and Carriage Tours provide complimentary pick up/drop off to our guests.
