SAVANNAH, GA - Seabolt Real Estate, an exclusive coastal Georgia affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, is pleased to announce the sale of 20 West Jones Street in Savannah, GA by Associate Broker Staci Donegan, who represented the buyer and the seller. On September 23, 2020, this transaction closed for $4.25 million, marking Savannah’s highest residential sale in the past three years and city’s third highest residential sale in the past 10 years.
Located in the heart of Savannah’s National Historic Landmark District, the elegant five-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath home at 20 West Jones Street is an exquisitely renovated 1848 Greek Revival residence offering exceptional interiors and the ultimate in Savannah style. Sheltered by an emerald canopy of live oak trees, this stunning home features magnificent double porches, an elevator, formal gardens, a swimming pool and pool lounge.
“I’m thrilled that this iconic Savannah home has found a very special buyer,” said Donegan. “This house is ideal for grand parties and Southern-inspired entertaining and has been magnificently renovated with the ultimate attention to detail.”
Recently featured as Mansion Global’s Listing of the Day, this award-winning property has been praised for its luxurious combination of historic details and contemporary conveniences. SouthernLiving.com writer Maggie Burch raved, “Although the home has been completely modernized, charming original details remain intact, including the heart pine floors, marble fireplaces and hefty trim and millwork.”

Originally constructed in 1849, the lavish property underwent renovations in 1878 and was modernized in the early 1970s, before earning a Historic Savannah Foundation Preservation Award in 2019 for the home’s thoughtful renovation, addition and restoration.
The 9,546 square-foot property, comprised of a main house, apartment, three-car garage and garden-level suite, is a historic masterpiece, filled with custom, high-end details and distinguished by a sweeping suite of entertaining rooms as well as private living spaces.
