Ardsley Park is a small neighborhood located in downtown Savannah between Montgomery Street and Abercorn Street, north of Columbus Drive and south of Victory Drive. One of the oldest neighborhoods in Savannah and originally developed in 1910, the homes that are currently in Ardsley Park date back to the 1930s and 40s and are considered some of the most extravagant mansions in the city limits.
Beautiful tree-lined streets, established landscape and historical style architecture grace the streets and avenues in this historical neighborhood.
Often referred to as Chatham Crescent, the neighborhood features historical homes and grand architecture priced from $300,000 to over $1 million depending on size and condition. Several homes are even listed on the National Register of Historical Homes, many of which were added in 1985. This particular neighborhood is a 20th century variant of Oglethorpe’s original plan for Savannah. There are crescent shaped avenues and small circular parks incorporated into a basic grid pattern. The majority of homes were built in the first half of the 20th century offering unique late to Victorian architectural styles to many of the homes in the neighborhood.
