HISTORY

This grand home was originally constructed circa 1849 for James Kerr in the Greek Revival vernacular style, typical of Savannah townhouses built during the mid-19th century.

In 1878, the building underwent a major renovation with a third-floor addition and a four-story addition to the rear of the house. The comprehensive addition added 10 rooms to the already existing six and more than doubled the house in size to a total of 16 rooms. The 1878 addition also changed the exterior character of the house to the more popular Italianate style of the period.  

The house remained largely unchanged until a prominent Savannah family bought it in the early 1970s. They completely modernized the house, adding bathrooms and a pool in the side garden. This renovation was published nationally and garnered much attention.

The lavish property at 20 W. Jones recently underwent a total renovation, which was spearheaded by Homeline Architecture, one of Savannah’s top architectural design firms.
