The Gingerbread House, which was built in 1899, is an excellent example of Steamboat Gothic architecture. It is known for the gingerbread arches that are featured predominantly on the exterior of the building. It is one of the most famous homes in the Historic District Savannah GA.

Among the most elaborate architecture in Savannah is The Gingerbread House – always a “must see” highlight of a guided tour of the Historic District Savannah. The Gingerbread House, also known as the Asendorf House, is 108 years old and yet still bears resemblance to the original architecture of the original three-story southern mansion, built in 1899. Cord Asendorf was married to Bernhardine Asendorf and had four children. He is buried in Savannah’s famous Bonaventure Cemetery. The features of The Gingerbread House are unmistakable and stand out as a fully designed home in the Gingerbread style, prevalent in the Black Forest region of Germany. It is framed by a 200 year old graceful oak tree at its entrance. Inside its doors you will find a conservatory, three fireplaces, a wooden staircase, and extensive wood trim throughout. Take note of the antique furnishings from the original period inside and take a stroll in the private courtyard with gazebo and small waterfall. The interior of The Gingerbread House also features elaborate architecture of stylish wood trim and a languishing staircase.

The Gingerbread House was purchased by SJ Management with the intent of preserving it as a major centerpiece of the Historic District Savannah GA, known throughout the US. Today, The Gingerbread House welcomes guest visitors for numerous events. Weddings comprise a major portion of these events, given its picturesque appeal. In fact, The Gingerbread House is one of the most photographed homes in Savannah, and has been featured in many films and publications as well as being visited by celebrities and US Presidents including Woodruff and Roosevelt. The Gingerbread House is fortunate to be located in the historic district of Savannah, GA, which was founded in 1733 as the first city in the USA to be laid out by an architect.
