Seabolt Real Estate, the exclusive coastal Georgia affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, is pleased to announce the sale of the Israel Dasher House, located at 124 West Gaston Street in Savannah, Ga. Associate Broker Staci Donegan represented the buyer and seller in this landmark transaction, which closed on March 16, 2021 for $3,050,000.
“The Israel Dasher House is truly a one-of-a-kind home that offers incredible privacy, original architectural details and classic Southern charm in the heart of Savannah’s National Historic Landmark District,” said Donegan. “I’m pleased for the sellers, who completed a thoughtful renovation of this historic home, and am delighted for the new owners.”
Originally built in 1858, the Israel Dasher House stands apart as one of the finest private residences in Savannah, capturing every imaginable luxury for world-class entertaining. Located on a prized double lot less than a block from Savannah’s famed Forsyth Park, this incredible property features a five-bedroom main residence, a garden-level apartment with a private entrance, a newly remodeled carriage house with a private entrance and off-street parking.
The main residence is defined by turnkey elegance and timeless architecture, boasting a triple parlor with soaring 12-foot ceilings, refinished heart pine floors, original plaster ceiling moldings, vintage pocket doors, seven gas fireplaces and a custom L-shaped kitchen with a 10-foot Carrera marble island. In addition, this spectacular home offers a spacious, open-air brick patio, which runs the entire length of the property, plus a heated lap pool, stone-clad spa, elegant fountain and fruit orchard.
The Israel Dasher House underwent a thoughtful year-long renovation, replete with handsome custom finishes and bespoke interiors masterminded by one of the top interior designers in New York. As a result, this exceptional home strategically blends historic details with contemporary style.
Praised as an “impressive 19th-century gem” by Forbes.com, this iconic 1858 home was also featured as The Wall Street Journal’s House of the Day and earned acclaim as a finalist in the HGTV Ultimate House Hunt 2020 in the “Homes with a History” category.
