Many cities whose history goes back to colonial times have roads and lanes that wander here and there. This is not the case with Savannah. The Hostess City was one of the first urban areas to be planned out. The founder of the Georgia colony, James Oglethorpe, created the grid for the city. Included were areas of wonderful greenery. These are the squares of Savannah and they add enormous value to the city real estate.
Incredible Examples of Architecture
Most of the original square's still exist and they are named after famous Americans, as well as people and events which mattered in the history of Savannah. Chippewa Square is perhaps the most popular, and at Lafayette Square, you'll find the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist. Madison Square was the scene of vicious fighting during the Battle of Savannah in the Revolutionary War.
So much history borders on the squares and architecture reflect that. Savannah has a collage of housing styles which include Federal, Georgian, Italianate, Regency, Gothic Revival, Romanesque Revival, Greek Revival, and Second French Empire. Many of these homes have ornamental ironwork that adds to the amazing appearance of these homes. If you happen to be a big fan of architecture and style, you will find what you need along the Savannah squares.
Finding the House You Want and Need
The idea of living close to one of the Savannah squares is very appealing. You can be within walking distance of the business area, and enjoy all the great ambiance Savannah squares have to offer. The challenge comes from finding the house you want and also the home you need.
You may have your heart set on a Gothic Revival style of the house. Where is it located? Is it near a school or shopping area? Houses bordering Monterey Square are lovely and they are also very expensive. Can you find the house that you want and need, yet still be able to afford it? These are very serious questions for which answers have to be found. Not every real estate agent is able to do that. Some agents specialize in suburban areas, and others quite frankly are part-time people only. They do not have the time or energy to research property and investigate neighborhoods. Live Love Savannah is a boutique real estate agency in Savannah. We are very familiar with the squares, and we can help you find that perfect home.
What we offer in the way of service are professionals who work full-time as real estate agents. Part of their job is to research the neighborhoods and have a good working knowledge of all the Savannah squares. In addition to knowing the neighborhoods, our people do something that many other agents forget to do: we listen. Our agents want to know exactly what it is you're looking for, the price range you are willing to work in, and what neighborhood amenities you need. If you need to have a location close to the church, we will find it. If you're looking for a recently priced Victorian house, we will do everything we can to locate this property. You can expect client communication as we are doing this. Our agents work for you when you are a client of ours.
You really do not want to take the time and effort to investigate every one of these beautiful neighborhoods. Allow us to do that for you and experience hassle free real estate service. We will help you find that special house where you want to set down roots and perhaps raise a family.
