Golden Age

Local Savannah real estate legend Cora Bett Thomas is known for her cocktail parties and for being a pioneer who helped gentrify downtown Savannah by moving into her charming row house in the Seventies. A crisp, clean color palette of creams, ivories and gold lend her living room its elegant feel.

Historic Home

Downtown's lovely tree-lined streets are distinguished by an array of beautifully restored homes like this 1845 three-bedroom, three and a half bath home owned by well-known Savannah realtor Cora Bett Thomas. Located on beautiful Jones Street, Thomas's house is the only one on her street with an entrance on the street (most require a climb up stairs at the front of the building to reach the entrance).
