Ardsley Park stands apart as a popular pre-war neighborhood in Savannah. Established in 1911, Ardsley Park has a lush tree canopy that’s as impressive as the stately homes occupying the perfectly planned blocks.
Home styles incorporate a beautiful combination of elegant mansions and quaint craftsman bungalows, all poised perfectly on tree-lined streets punctuated by green grass and public spaces with easy access to shopping, dining, medical facilities and more.
The Ardsley Park-Chatham Crescent neighborhood, which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1985, is bounded by Victory Drive, 55th Street, Bull Street and Waters Avenue. Originally founded in 1910 as two distinct adjacent planned subdivisions, Ardsley Park’s design reflects Oglethorpe’s original plan for Savannah, with regular grids of homes interspersed with generous public open spaces.
Developers Harry Hays and William Lattimore envisioned the area as Savannah’s first auto-oriented subdivision. Chatham Crescent’s grand mall — the palm-lined linear park in front of Savannah Arts Academy with curved streets and circular pocket parks — is a Beaux Arts-influenced masterpiece of urban design.
Ardsley Park offers a unique mix of housing styles, from grand two-story brick homes along Abercorn Street to modest bungalows along numbered streets. By any measure, Ardsley Park is a great place to call home.
