Savannah's 113-year-old Mills B. Lane House.
The 113-year-old Mills B. Lane House, located at 26 E. Gaston Street in Savannah, was sold to its fourth owner in mid-January for $4 million, according to the realtor who brokered the deal.
Originally built for Georgia banking magnate Mills B. Lane in 1908, this grand six-bedroom home overlooking Savannah’s Forsyth Park is considered as an architectural masterpiece, featuring commanding Ionic columns, a stately brick facade, graceful Swan’s neck pediment and hand-crafted wrought iron fencing.
“The Mills B. Lane House perfectly blends classic Savannah style and historic Southern charm, offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to enjoy one of the city’s most exceptional historic homes,” said Staci Donegan with Seabolt Real Estate. “I’m delighted to welcome the new homeowners to the National Historic Landmark District and honored to represent the sellers, who beautifully maintained this iconic historic home for future generations to enjoy.”
The 14,500 square-foot property, which is comprised of a main house, carriage house with pool cabana, features renovated interiors with period details, high ceilings, parquet floors, and hand-painted panels by Bob Christian.
A finalist in this summer’s HGTV Ultimate House Hunt 2020, the Mills B. Lane House was prominently showcased in the “Homes with a History” category as one of the nation’s most incredible listings. The home was also featured in the film “The Legend of Bagger Vance.”
