Originally built in 1892 for the Tidewater Oil Company, the four-story legacy in Savannah was created to capture breathtaking views of both the river and Emmet Park. From the front door, one can look straight out to the river past a stunning three-story stairway that serves as the focal point of the house. For added drama, the stairs lead to a glass atrium with a wraparound terrace and roof garden. A meticulous renovation in 2003 infused elements of contemporary flair while preserving the original windows, fireplaces, and wood ceilings. An elevator, gourmet kitchen, fine mantels, and wrought iron gates were elegantly incorporated. Currently, the owners live on the Factors Walk and Bay Street levels, with the River Street frontage furnishing retail space—much in keeping with the fascinating history of the landmark building, which has served as home to a blue jeans factory, Ships of the Seas Museum, and other ventures over the many years since the eighteenth century.
