House Crush N°27

Verands Magazine
I have always coveted this house

I’ve coveted this house for years …


Escape—that’s the best word to describe this island house near Savannah, Georgia. Fredrick Schwalb built this home around 1930. My mother-in-law visited there often as a child with her mother. An Atlanta family recently renovated this charmer as an island get-a-way. Every time we used to walk the bluff my mind was renovating this house with every step. The new addition includes a screened porch—a necessity in Savannah, a BBQ area and the most wonderful barn/guest house. The barn was my first House Crush post ever! Take a little look around the corner with me.

    Taste is the name of the game. Unfortunately there is too much bad taste and no taste rampant out there. These houses are gracious and lovely and LIVABLE. Talented folks involved in each house
