– Guests from Savannah, Florida, the Carolinas, New York and Aspen were the first to see the stunning furnished condominiums at Columbia Place this week at a special Open House reception hosted by Cora Bett Thomas Realty and Christie’s Great Estates. The unveiling was top tier from start to finish. Imagine Savannah’s finest architectural details complemented with sophisticated design, incredible décor and breathtaking views and you will envision Columbia Place. Guests were treated to fine wines and lavish canapés as they toured extra large living rooms opening to kitchen and dining areas that tout Subzero, Wolf and Gagganau appliances. Marble islands, complemented with dramatic lighting and custom cabinetry, displayed food presentations from the Kehoe House and The Mansion on Forsyth Park. Hutchinson Island developer John McCleskey and his wife, Kay, raved over the details -- large marble baths, high ceilings, fireplaces and gated underground parking. Other Savannah residents were interested in the privacy, security and all of the services offered by the Kehoe House and The Mansion on Forsyth Park. Owners can select from a menu of services from the delivery of fine champagne, butler served dinners, housekeeping and use of the Spa and Fitness Center at the Mansion. Sales associates Stephanie Wilson-Evans, Alyson Arnold and Patricia Bishop led tours of the exquisite homes late into the evening. The exclusive listing agent for the Columbia Place is Cora Bett Thomas Realty, an exclusive affiliate of Christie’s Great Estates.

This gated enclave at 310 E. State Street serves as the new epicenter of luxury living in Savannah.
