Few walks are as inspiring to fans of historical architecture as one on a pleasant fall day through the streets of the Historic Landmark District of Old Savannah. It is one of the largest historical districts in the country, spanning 2.2 square miles of tree-shaded streets with more than 1,100 historically and architecturally significant buildings, and includes many examples of Federal, Victorian, Regency and Italianate architecture.

Known well for its historic parks and squares such as Monterey Square, Madison Square, Forsyth Park and Emmet Park, elegant 1800’s mansions are built around the outside edges with their lovely wrought-iron gates and secret gardens nestled inside.

Now for sale is one of these beautifully restored mansions overlooking Monterey Park and across the street from the famed Mercer-Williams House that was the scene of the shooting death of Jim Williams’ assistant Danny Hansford, detailed in the book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.

Just a block behind the house is the length of Forsyth Park, which can be viewed from the roof terrace. Built in 1879, the 7,214-square-foot southern mansion has five bedrooms and eight baths. The restoration included expert attention to the fine architectural details with major updates to include a custom gourmet kitchen, baths and the addition of the large roof terrace. Priced at $3.15 million.
