See inside this stunning historic Savannah home on sale for $6.75M

Sothebys International Realty

Another historic Southern home is on the market this week. This one is a gorgeous Georgian Revival in Savannah overflowing with street appeal and charm. It might be even more impressive than the rare Charleston mansion for sale on East Battery.

Known as the Mills B. Lane house, the estate was built in 1907. It is located in the historic Landmark District of downtown Savannah and offers views of the beautiful Forsyth Park.

Southern Style

The exterior’s iconic Corinthian columns, “Swan’s neck” pediment and shutters accenting the windows offer a taste of the grandeur that awaits inside.

The front doors open to reveal parquet floors and period moldings throughout the grand entrance hall. In addition, there are 29 handpainted murals decorating the foyer.

The massive 14,500-square-foot mansion is full of original details and eccentric personality. The many rooms — including six bedrooms, eight full baths and three half-baths — are colorfully decorated with punchy patterns and one-of-a-kind details.

Hospitality At Home

On the first floor, there are two formal parlors and a ballroom-size dining room made for entertaining, as well as a gourmet chef’s kitchen. This updated space features luxury appliances, including a double oven, an indoor grill, a warmer oven and a wine chiller, plus a large island and ample counter space for easy food prep. There’s a butler’s pantry for storage and a breakfast area for starting every day off on the right foot.
