Savannah, Georgia, is where you go for the history and stay for the lifestyle. A place of intrigue and undeniable coastal beauty, the famed low-country locale is an excellent spot to purchase a second home or secure a place for retirement. In this week’s Splurge vs. Steal, we highlight two incredible offerings, each with prime locations and low-country charm, but with price points that are miles apart. Which would you choose, the Intercoastal Waterway splurge or the historic Ardsley Park steal?
Splurge: Waterfront On The Wilmington With A Deep Water Slip For $975K
This impressive waterfront estate sits right on the Wilmington River with breathtaking views of the Intercoastal Waterway. The three-bedroom, two-full-and-one-half-bathroom home is ideally located in the gated, Causton Bluff neighborhood, just 10 minutes from Truman Parkway & Historic District. The best part? It comes with its own private, deep-water boat slip and lush yard with quintessential Southern Live Oak overlooking the river.
Inside, a generous river room with fireplace offers a wall of picture windows framing picturesque water views. Gorgeous hardwood floors, 10-foot-ceilings, and wide moldings can be found throughout. According to the listing, “The River Room and Separate Dining Room form a huge area for entertaining or just watching yachts ply the Intracoastal.” From the oversized master to the incredible areas to entertain, this Savannah waterfront is a keeper.

Steal: Beautiful Bungalow In Historic Ardsley Park For $315K
Our steal is what the listing calls, “Ardsley Park’s most adorable bungalow!” And we can see why. From its classic front porch to its stunning interiors, this Savannah home is filled with southern charm. Located in the heart of historic and highly desirable Ardsley Park sit this two-bedroom, two-bathroom, 1,400-square-foot home, complete with original hardwood floors, built-ins, and upgrades galore.
The stainless steel kitchen is a head-turner with Carrara marble counters and six-burner gas range. In addition, you’ll enjoy an inviting master suite with walk-in closet and updated spa bath. The glass shower and massive walk-in closet are, according to the listing, “totally unheard of in this area!” A fenced backyard with storage shed is great for entertaining, but there’s also Daffin Park, fabulous restaurants, and boutique shopping nearby. At a price point far below our splurge, this is an exceptional low-country living for less!
