Berrien House

Omega was very proud to be chosen for an extensive restoration of Downtown Savannah’s Berrien House. Previously the oldest unrestored historic home in the State of Georgia, Berrien House was built in 1791 for Major John Berrien, a Revolutionary War hero. The notable Savannah home is now owned and preserved by his great-great-great-grandson, Andrew Jones.

Location: Savannah, GA
Architect: DBK
Size: 4,500 square feet

Rooted in Savannah’s deep history, Berrien House preservation includes the restoration of the home’s interior which includes private residential space for the owner, museum space for guests and a commercial bank on the ground floor. The scope of work includes preservation and custom fabrication of numerous elements of the home’s interior and exterior with historic profiles, moldings, mantels, doors and flooring. The ballroom, withdrawing room and center hall were restored faithfully to their period states while elsewhere, repurposed original materials blend seamlessly with modern amenities.
