A stunning tour-de-force! Located in the middle of Forsyth Park's 'Millionaire's Row' revival, the Othis and Editha Ashmore House (c. 1898) is considered one of Savannah's premier renovations. Done with sophisticated style and taste, this home is part of the 'Next Wave' currently underway in the downtown District - boasting renovations and restorations that rival far larger cities.
Built as the Ashmore family home, the unassuming exterior belies an interior of unparalled original detailing. An imposing Entry Hall and double-back Staircase set the tone of the entire ground level. Room after room of masterful spatial interplays - a flowing floor plan - 12'+ ceilings - all culminating in a State-of-the-Art Gourmet Kitchen with Wine Bar and Breakfast Areas.
The top floors are a treat unto themselves. Overscaled hallways, replete with inglenooks and 'fainting benchs', lead to the Master's Suite, several Bedroom suites complete with bay windows, lavish bathrooms, overlook porches, and of course, the private back stairs up to the 'Gaming Room'! All a delight to behold and all sumptuously furnished.
Numerous windows throughout the mansion provide unparalled views of Forsyth Park and the Historic Victorian District. Classic turn-of-the-century architectural details are featured on the exterior and throughout the grounds - wrap porches, balconies, tripartite bay windows,trellised decks, fountains, etc.
