The Property

Known for creating and renovating residences that reflect his love of art and expertise in selecting the latest and extraordinary design elements, the current owner, is proud to present Saussy Mansion.  He has also traveled the world to collect the finest architectural and decoration ideas, as well as the art and furnishings, to combine the very best of the classical tradition with every modern technological convenience.
Childhood home of painter Hattie Saussy, only daughter to survive past age 9 of Dr. Joachim. R. Saussy III and Rachel Louise Shivers, both prominent Savannahians.  She was educated at the New York School of Fine and Applied Art (later the Parsons School for Design) and studied in Paris before eventually returning to Savannah.  Her sought after work can still be found today in Georgia in the collections of the Columbus Museum in Columbus, the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, the Morris Museum of Art in Augusta, and the Telfair Museum of Art. 
Positioned a few houses off picturesque Monterey Square and Forsyth Park on an exceptional residential, tree-lined block, this free-standing mansion is on 60 feet wide, 100 feet deep lot, and features extensive rooftop terraces and a 30 feet wide side garden, providing remarkable light at all times. 
What makes the interior of the building so exceptional is the design sense of the owner. Wherever the eye rests there is a visual vignette to appreciate.  All of the original moldings and period details - including the heart-pine wood floors and the marble fireplaces - have been retained but restored and redefined, and in keeping with the grandeur of a meticulously maintained, luxury residence.
The entertaining floor offers the ideal configuration of side hall entry foyer, grand salon with four windows which then proceeds to a formal dining and on to a new gleaming white kitchen at the rear of the parlor floor having windows on both sides and two large doors that lead the eye the moment one enters to the outdoor terrace, and down, overlooking a garden one might find in England.  
With four levels and four separate living spaces, it encompasses over 8,750 interior square feet including the conditioned 1,200 sqft three car garage, and approximately 2,450 exterior feet on the roof terraces.
Sonos music system and exceptional audio-visual throughout the mansion and exteriors.  Pelican water filtration throughout the house. Security system with cameras. Extensive insulation and tempered glass windows dramatically reduce noise impact and increase energy efficiency.
This exquisite grand mansion is available for the discerning homeowner needing ample space for guests or enjoyed with multiple income producing spaces.
