Wisteria House

This is the first stop on our tour of the
2009 Savannah tour of homes & gardens

I can remember always wanting to go inside this house even as a young girl when we would come to Savannah to visit daddy's family so I was very excited to see it . It is a private residence, it was built in 1897 it is a Queen Anne style home which was popular in the 1880's till the early 1900's. The rounded front porches are topped with copper turrets.
The back courtyard is small but they made it family friendly by adding a small pool and deck.

I love how the garage opens up to the pool for extra play space and the creeping fig that is climbing all over the garage.


Beth and I were tempted to just sit in the swing and forget about the rest of the tour .. lol but we couldn't do that we had to see what other treasures we could find there was 9 stops on the tour plus all the beauty of downtown Savannah so there is LOTS of pictures to share so I will get them all up as quickly as I can.
Don't forget click on any picture to enlarge







We did not know till we got there that we could not take pictures inside any of the homes for safety reasons, so sorry I sure wish I could have shared the entire tour with everyone.

  3. In Romania we don't have this type of tour. It is very, very interesting, an idea that will not work here, but very nice to watch and hear all the stories... from US.

  8. I saw your pretty profile pic on another blog, so I wandered over her, and am glad I did. I love the wisteria in our backyard, that was planted by the previous owner.

    Very interestingly, you have the SAME blog background as I do, so you "have to" visit me (just joking) -but if you do, look for the post of a couple of weeks ago "More of Spring in my backyard" where you'll see the wisteria.

  10. Wonderful! I think my favorite photo is the one with the swing on the porch looking out to the yard. What a gorgeous setting.

  12. OMGosh, I so wish I was there! The annual tour of homes was always one of my favorite things to do when I lived in Savannah.

    I'm trying to get my daughter to agree to planting wisteria at one end of our very large wraparound porch, but she says it's so invasive (and she's right!) even though I made a pinkie promise to keep it cut back. I'm still working on her, hoping to wear her down!
