It’s Paula Deen’s House in Savannah, Y’all!

Paula Deen's house in Savannah

Paula Deen’s house in Savannah, Georgia, was recently featured on CMT Cribs. I took these snapshots of it while watching the tour because I knew you’d want to see it, too! Because it came from the video, the photo quality isn’t very good, but it gives you an idea of her Southern home style.

Her house has 4,800 square feet (4 BR, 4.5 BA) and is just as charming as can be.

Paula welcomes us into her foyer:

Living room:

Dining area:

Her famous kitchen “where the magic happens:”

Paula’s bedroom:

Paula shows off her dog steps that lead up to the bed so her “babies” can climb up without assistance:

The bathroom, where she gets her hair and makeup done before filming each show:

On the Food Network website, you can get Paula’s 100 most popular recipes, from her Lady & Sons Chicken Pot Pie to Grandmother Paul’s Fried Chicken. Here’s a photo of her in her kitchen that I found there:

You can watch the entire house tour on video at CMT Cribs. (Note: it looks like they may have taken it down since I wrote this post in 2009. The page is coming up blank. Sorry!)

*2012 UPDATE*

Oprah and Gayle King visited Paula in Savannah and got a tour of Deen’s waterfront property Riverbend on Oprah’s Next Chapter. Although it has a similar style, it looks like a different house than the one we saw on CMT. Take a look!

She shows them the game room:

Dishing out a meal for them in the dining room:

Visit to see the slideshow with all the pics by photographer George Burns. My favorite part of the property? The guest house!

*2015 Update*

Paula just put this house on the market for $12.5 m. Read about it here!

Cute house, but this will tell you how much I know about Paula Deen: She tapes her show *in* her house? Wow…

Nathan December 9, 2009 at 3:35 am

I really like every room in this house, with the exception of the dining room. I expected a lot of gaudy over decoration or some reason.

Darla December 9, 2009 at 4:18 am

Just a country and cozy as I expected it to be…thanks for sharing!

Beautiful house! That’s actually a house I could live in. I also didn’t know that they taped the shows in her own home. That must be nice!

Swoon! I missed this! I wonder if they’ll reshow it! Gorgeous…

I knew I liked her but when I saw the dog steps to her bed I knew I loved her!

Jan December 9, 2009 at 7:51 am

Oh…how I love Paula and her home! It looks as warm and as genuine as she is!! I’ll bet if I met her (or if any of us met her), we could sit down and have a GAB FEST, like old girlfriends do…especially if we had 2 of her favorite “Condiments” ~ Butter and Mayonnaise!! LOL!!!

Thanks for sharing this with us!!

Oh, it does suit her perfectly!! When I first saw the pictures I thought that her house would probably be closest to what I’d like my house to look like. :) Two thumbs up to you for taking pictures during a TV show–hope you didn’t get a headache. :)

I’d love a cozy house like that. It looks like a place designed with family in mind.

Also, I’m relieved to see Paula has fully recovered from the errant flying ham from her Thanksgiving episode :-)

This is one celebrity house I would love to live in. Not grand, but obviously very, very nice. I love the check drapes, and that kitchen! There’s nothing I would change…except maybe a few colors. It has elegance and homey living mixed perfectly…love it!!!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions December 9, 2009 at 9:22 am

I love her house! Love the openness and “come right in” feel to it. That kitchen is fantastic ~ not just for cooking but when you have people over and everyone hangs out in the kitchen.

Becky @ Farmgirl Paints December 9, 2009 at 9:58 am

Love this post Julia!! Paula Deen is one of my favorites and her style is right up my alley. Gorgeous…having a kitchen like that might actually make me want to cook:)

Bailey December 9, 2009 at 10:52 am

Oh how I love Paula…And half the reason I watch the show (cause let’s face it, there is little she cooks that I can eat with a wedding coming up and all) is to see her beautiful house. SO cozy and the location on the water? Gorgeous.
Funny story. So last year my bff Laura and I took a roadtrip from Houston to Montreal and back. We basically ate our way up and down America, so naturally we had to stop by Paula Deens restaurant. Probably the most sinfully delicious food ever. I have dreams about the mac and cheese, and fried okra. But, even after 6 weeks on the road eating the greasiest diner food you could imagine, it was Paula who did me in. I felt like I had eaten a stick of butter like a lollypop. So worth it though.

Robin December 9, 2009 at 12:10 pm

I love that it looks like a normal (if very large) house that any of us could live in, and that the kitchen and bath accommodate her TV needs rather than were built to suit them (and would therefore be weird, unwieldy “studio” spaces the other 90% of the time).

Yay!! Thank you for doing this – I watch Paula Deen just to get glimpses of her beautiful home.

Paula Deen’s house really suits her, don’t you think? I’m a lady. I have sons. I need a house like Paula’s! Or maybe I just need to clean my own house so that I can enjoy what I have. :)

Kelly in Memphis December 9, 2009 at 4:37 pm

My most favorite house ever! Thank you! Since the video didn’t show the upstairs rooms, there’s a Kathy Griffin reality show where Kathy and her assistants stayed in guest bedrooms that are upstairs. (I didn’t find a link -but it aired earlier this year).

On the older Paula Deen shows the kitchen she filmed in had a oak antique-style ice box fridge that I loved. I would watch her show just to see that fridge.

Dana C. July 16, 2010 at 3:29 pm

Paula’s older shows were filmed in Gordon Elliot’s house in NY. He is the producer of her shows…just a tid bit of information…and I too loved that frig !!

Nancy December 9, 2009 at 5:45 pm

Love it! It really looks and feels like a home. I haven’t seen her often but the few times I have, I’ve loved her! And her food sounds so scrumptious. I’d love to sit there at the end of her counter and let her feed me.. LOL

Thanks for sharing – I now have it bookmarked!
Any pics from the upcoming “It’s Complicated” movie? I think I saw an article about it somewhere – House Beautiful maybe? I am definitely going to see it to get some good decorating ideas!!

Does anyone know if the furniture at the bottom of the bed hold a flat screen TV in it? I want a piece of furniture like that, maybe she has it in her line?!

I have seen Paula film in two other kitchens but not the one shown here. Does she have another kitchen ? One of the other kitchen’s also had beautiful decor but looked smaller.

Shelley Harris February 23, 2010 at 11:28 am

Ok, I would just live in this kitchen. It looks like “home”.

A real wonderful house for a real wonderful woman.

Of all the celeb homes you’ve featured, this is the one that seems to most ‘normal’ and family friendly. Very homey and pleasant.

I first saw Paula’s house in the early issues of her cooking magazine, and I loved it from the minute I saw it! You don’t have a picture of it in your post, but her foyer is so welcoming. I tried to figure out the floor plan from the photos in the mag, and I would love love love to have a house like this backing up to a waterway, just like Paula’s. Thank you!

SANDRA ANDERSON June 16, 2011 at 2:37 pm

Hi Paula,
I had been watching some of your cooking shows and I do enjoy seeing you cook in your lovely looking kitchen. Your home is so beautiful there in Savannah Georgia. I have also been buying some of the baked food products that you advertise on television. The cakes and other sweet items are so good and delicious. I love them all.

danny w July 12, 2011 at 4:39 pm

i got to be on one of her episodes so i got a tour of the house its so sweet
