SAVANNAH, GA – Seabolt Real Estate, the exclusive coastal Georgia affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, is pleased to announce the recent sale of the iconic Wedding Cake Mansion, located at 14 East Taylor Street in Savannah, GA. Associate Broker Staci Donegan represented the buyer and seller in this notable sale, which closed on May 11, 2021 for $3.2 million.
“It’s always a pleasure to represent a seller who has beautifully preserved one of Savannah’s historic homes, but properties like the Wedding Cake Mansion are truly one-of-a-kind,” said Donegan. “I’m deeply honored to have facilitated both sides of this significant transaction and am delighted to welcome the new owners to Savannah’s National Historic Landmark District.”
Originally built in 1869, this stylish Second Empire Baroque treasure has been expertly restored to its former glory, earning a Historic Savannah Foundation Preservation Award for its period-appropriate renovations. Nestled in a prime location overlooking picturesque Monterey Square, the stunning home features a five-bedroom main residence, a garden-level apartment with a separate entrance and a freestanding carriage house with a private entrance.
The immaculate four-story residence boasts bright, airy interiors, high ceilings, a grand double parlor defined by neoclassical style, a gourmet kitchen with Parisian-inspired detailing and parquet wood flooring as well as elevator access to all floors. In addition, this impressive home offers private outdoor spaces, including a brick courtyard with fountain, a second-floor screened porch and a third-floor veranda with spectacular city views. Additional highlights include unique ornamental ironwork, rounded bay windows facing Monterey Square, decorative plasterwork, intricate moldings, heart pine floors, Italian mosaics, hand-painted murals, handcrafted stained glass and original decorative fireplaces.
