Prices typically range between the mid 100s to the high 200s depending on size and updates.  Kensington Park is a great neighborhood for walking with sidewalks and winding streets.

Parkside Neighborhood at Daffin Park in Savannah Georgia

DaffinParkThe Parkside neighborhood, literally named because the community borders Daffin Park along Washington Avenue, one of the most beautiful and desirable streets in Savannah with majestic oak trees draped with Spanish moss. The Parkside area runs west to east from Waters Avenue to Bee Road and from Washington Avenue to around 52nd St from north to south.
 You’ll find a variety of early to mid 20th century homes including Arts and Crafts style bungalows and 1950s brick. Home prices currently range from about the low to high 100s depending on the size, modern upgrades and of course the proximity to the park.

Savannah is fortunate to have some really great parks.  In the downtown Victorian District Forsyth Park is the place to be but if you live in Ardsley ParkBaldwin ParkGordonstonor the Parkside neighborhoods then you’ll probably be spending a lot more time in Daffin Park.

Parkside

Daffin Park is always full of activity but is so large that it rarely seems crowded at about 80 acres. There’s soccer fields, football, baseball, volleyball, a well equipped children’s playground, basketball courts, swimming, fishing, miles of sidewalks for running, a beautiful stocked pond with a lovely gazebo in the center and a fountain. The gazebo can be rented out for parties and most weekends you’ll see families and friends having a cookout or tailgating.
 A really great place to walk dogs, pets are very welcome, on leash of course, however, there are plans to have a true, fenced in, off lease dog park completed in Daffin Park by the end of October, 2011! The center of the park features a grass promenade that runs the length of the park amid huge oaks with limbs stretching out and forming a shaded moss canopy. At the east in of the park is Grayson Stadium, home to our local baseball team, The Savannah Sand Gnats.
If you enjoy spending time outdoors in Savannah’s great weather, taking advantage of what Daffin Park has to offer then you’ll want to check out this great park side community.
For more information just send me an email of give me a call.

Savannah New Homes

Posted in New Homes, Savannah, Savannah neighborhoods with tags , , , , , , , on July 20, 2010 by savannahgeorgiahomes

New_2 New_1

Would you like to live in a brand new home?  Be the first family to live there…..even pick out your carpet, tile and hardwood flooring, choose your cabinets, counters, decide whether you want brick, siding, stucco, stone and on and on?

If that’s the case buying a new home in Savannah may be for you.  Building from the ground up may take 4 to 6 months from start to finish but new home communities usually have homes in different floor plans at various stages of completion.  Even if you are looking to move into a new home in just a month or two, often you can still choose many of these custom features in plenty of time.

Savannah has a wide variety of new homes throughout Chatham county and in every price range.

Just to name a few……

  • Berwick Plantation
  • The Villages at Berwick
  • Chapel Park at Berwick
  • The Enclave
  • Legacy Square
  • Stonebridge
  • The Lakes at Cottonvale
  • Savannah Quarters
  • Sweetwater Station
  • Bradley Point South
  • Canebrake Village

Give me a call or send me an email and I would be happy to email you some new construction homes to to look through.

Remember, when you walk into a new homes community the on site agent represents the seller so make sure you have an agent with you on your first visit to the community. As an agent who is experienced in new home sales I can help you to negotiate the best price and upgrades for your money and look out for YOUR best interests…. not the seller’s.

Keep in mind, there is a lot to consider when purchasing a new home.  How long will they still be building in the community?  Is there a possibility that you may need to relocated before the community has finished construction?  If so, will I be able to compete with the builder’s prices if I have to offer mine for sale?  These are questions that a knowledgeable agent can discuss with you.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!
