Whether you’re moving from within the area or from out-of-state, we want to find the best neighborhood to fit your lifestyle, your budget, and your needs. Here are some of Savannah’s top five neighborhoods.
The South Central area includes Ardsley Park, Washington Street and similar neighborhoods like Parkside. This is a diverse neighborhood full of boutique owners, young families, architects and unique four and five bedroom craftsman bungalows and mansions built around the 1920s. Ardsley Park is one of the landmarks in this neighborhood with beautiful ancient live oak trees, tree-lined streets, and stately mansions. It’s far enough away from the busyness of downtown to provide a peaceful and residential area. Children and families can walk or ride bikes to school and residents have easy access to the south side shopping malls, markets, and restaurants.
This includes the neighborhoods of Habersham Woods and Mayfair. Here you will find mid-20th-century ranch homes with longer, quiet streets in the heart of the city. Residents are close to the YMCA, private and public schools, Memorial Stadium and two major hospitals. This middle-income family neighborhood is home to real estate agents, medical personnel, nurses and a variety of single, middle-aged residents and retirees.
This neighborhood includes the Landings at Skidaway Island and Wiley Bottom Road. This neighborhood is primarily a mix of wealthy retirees, corporate executives and affluent neighborhoods. You’ll find soccer moms, blue and white collar commuters, military families and more especially in the neighboring communities of Fort Stewart and Richmond Hill. This is a gated community on 6500 acres just 12 miles south of downtown Savannah. There are six golf courses, four clubhouses, and swimming pools. If you’re looking for the upscale neighborhood of Savannah, this is it.
Along Bluff Drive is the neighborhood of the Isle of Hope. This is a riverfront community with good schools, a pedestrian-friendly environment and a good variety of renters and homeowners. If you’ve been looking for a waterfront community, this is it. There’s no commercial development except for the Marina; markets and restaurants are at least 3 miles away.
This central part of town is about 2.5 mi.² featuring old Victorian homes, park-like squares, and unique architecture. This is a great neighborhood for up and comers, professionals, artists, students and service industry professionals. It’s also a great place for a vacation or a second home and it provides an easy walk score to numerous shops, restaurants, boutiques, and entertainment in downtown.
