Thoughtfully Designed Homes, Neighborhood Parks, Pedestrian-Friendly Streets, and the Beautiful, Historic Savannah River
Hammond’s Ferry is a new traditionally designed neighborhood on the edge of the Savannah River. The houses, buildings, and urban design of Hammond’s Ferry are an extension of the genteel architecture, friendly streets, and rich cultural heritage that already thrive in the culturally rich Savannah River Area.
You’ll find a range of housing types- large and small single-family homes, live/work houses, apartments, and town homes. Many offer river views. Others have views of city parks, and permanently protected greenspace. All are designed for easy maintenance and feature porches, balconies, verandas, or broad entries within “conversational distance” of the sidewalk. The result is a strong, old-fashioned sense of community.
The new Greenway trail loops through the neighborhood and there are a number of small family parks, but on warm evenings, you’ll head for the Riverfront Esplanade. Winding along the river’s edge, the esplanade provides public access to a full mile of waterfront. Pick up a cup of coffee or an ice cream cone from one of the shops at Riverfront Square, stake out a bench, and enjoy!
