Matthew Lufburrow was born in Middletown, N.J. in 1787. He came to Savannah as a Master Mason and a Master Builder circa 1815. He did much work in Savannah. Two of his homes, rated exceptional by Historic Savannah, are still standing. He superintended the U.S. Custom House for John Norris, the architect.
Today, Lufburrow, Inc. continues that fine tradition. The present day company. was founded in 1959 by Albert B. Lufburrow, who is still fully active in the company. The company was an outgrowth of Lufburrow Realty Co., which was founded by Thomas W. Lufburrow in 1923. At the time of incorporation, Savannah had a need for a company who had the knowledge and desire to build quality homes and develop distinctive neighborhoods. Lufburrow, Inc. was created to fulfill these needs. Since it’s inception, we have built many homes in the Savannah, Bluffton and Hilton Head communities. Such developments as South Harbor on Skidaway, Habersham Woods, 6401 Habersham and Stephenson Court have been built and developed by our company.
As builders, we believe, as Grandfather Matthew did, in uncompromising quality. In order to accomplish this goal, we enjoy the privilege of working on a daily basis with the owner, architect and the designers. Building and remodeling of fine homes at a reasonable cost, is our primary goal. The supervision of the construction is done personally by Stephen and Matthew Lufburrow. In order to build a fine home, it must be created and built like a piece of handcrafted furniture. It requires special attention and devotion to detail. This level of attention allows us to only undertake two or three projects at a time.
