HOW MUCH: $1,495,000

SIZE: 8,376 square feet (total)


SETTING: This 1912 house is on a residential stretch of Victory Drive, a four-lane road lined with historic houses shaded by lush live oaks. There are five city parks within a five-block walk, including the 80-acre Daffin Park, across the street. Savannah's historic downtown is within a few miles; basic shopping, including Publix and Whole Foods supermarkets, are under a mile away. Tybee Island, a beach and popular getaway spot with salt marshes on its western shores and the Atlantic Ocean on its eastern ones, is about a 20-minute drive away.

INDOORS: The three-story residence, known locally as the Wedding Cake House, was last renovated in 2000. The facade has deep covered front porches on both stories, accented by white columns on the first floor and a wrought-iron balcony upstairs. Original details include hardwood floors, leaded glass windows, molding and columns throughout. The front door opens to a tiled foyer with a grand central staircase leading to the bedroom level. There are parlors to the left and right of the foyer, both with original white-brick fireplace surrounds retrofitted for gas. Ceilings are 11 feet high on the first floor.

In addition to a formal dining room, also with a brick fireplace, the first floor also has a study and a semicircular solarium with leaded-glass windows with a door opening to the front porch. The kitchen features a Sub-Zero refrigerator, a six-burner Thermador range, granite countertops and an island.

The second floor has four bedrooms, each with its own fireplace. Two of the bedrooms are suites, with doors opening to the second-floor porch. The master has a sitting area, and built-ins to hide a computer work space and a TV. Its en-suite bathroom has a claw-foot tub, a walk-in shower and double sinks with marble counters. On the third floor is a family room and art studio with 15-foot ceilings. Above the carriage house behind the main house, there's a two-bedroom apartment with a full bath.

OUTDOOR SPACE: A half-acre, with yards in front and back, a back brick patio, and gardens. Most of the lot is shaded by live oaks hung with Spanish moss.

TAXES: $15,000 (approximately)
