Savannah bungalow with wraparound porch
This modest bungalow sits on a quiet tree-lined street in Thunderbolt, Georgia, a picturesque fishing village just a few miles from downtown Savannah. The small house has been renovated by the owner and turned into a vacation rental.
The public spaces are arranged along the left side, with the living room in front, the dining space in the middle and the kitchen at the back. The other side of the house has two bedrooms with a spacious bathroom in between. The exact size is unknown but we estimate it to be a comfortable 800 to 900 ft2 (74 to 84 m2).
The bungalow is now air conditioned, but originally the wraparound porch would have been the main living area during hot, humid weather. The porch can be accessed from both the living and dining rooms, and is wide enough to place groupings of furniture while leaving space for people to pass. Since these photos were taken, the owner has also added a screened porch off the back bedroom.
The large backyard is shaded by a 250-year-old oak tree dripping with Spanish Moss. The new screened porch likely improves access to the backyard as there previously was no back door at all, however it would be nice to have a door from the kitchen as well.
The bathroom is very big and even has space for a large armoire. Given the size, the room was likely used for something else before being turned into a bathroom. The laundry facilities are located in the kitchen, with the machines concealed behind a curtain in a built-in niche.
