Garden designer Holley Jaakkola's gorgeous home in Savannah's coastal Isle of Hope community 15 minutes from downtown can often suggest a film set. This beautifully manicured, idyllic, old-fashioned 1850 home sits on a quiet country road where children in bathing suits ride bikes and the pace is calm and removed from the fracas of modern life. The home is separated from the water by that narrow road and the entire Isle of Hope community has a sleepy, lost-in-time attitude.
