Neighborhood Living Minutes From Downtown
Midtown Savannah is one of the most popular areas for those looking to rent or buy a home. If you’re looking for a place that is close to Downtown, but not too close, then Midtown Savannah is for you. Specifically, Midtown’s neighborhoods are less than 10 minutes away from the downtown area, but are just far enough to be out of the way for the casual stroll. The neighborhoods of Midtown, which include Ardsley Park, Habersham Village, and Parkside are hosts to stores, restaurants and schools, and are convenient to one of Savannah’s major hospitals as well as the Truman Parkway. These neighborhoods contain many different styles of homes of all shapes and sizes, and are filled with majestic oak trees and inviting parks. Midtown is a continuation of a stretch of unique residential neighborhoods from the Savannah River heading South that includes the Historic District, Victorian District and the Starland District.
In the 1920’s, construction began on Ardsley Park, located just south of Victory Drive. Ardsley Park featured stone entrance ways, stately homes, and quick access to the Historic District. Today, Ardsley Park is one of the most desirable areas of Savannah. With a wide range of home prices and proximity to two major hospitals, restaurants, and shopping, Ardsley Park offers a dramatic alternative to the Historic District’s European lifestyle. Home prices range from the $900’s down to under $200k.
