Incredible mid-century modern home nestled in the quiet Atlanta neighborhood of Sherwood Forest.
This special property was beautifully restored to it’s former glory by the current (and second) owner. Originally custom built by the Downing family with an enclosed pool in mind, the plans went through several stages before this floor plan was finalized.
With very few square walls, the house centers around the courtyard pool that has an opaque roof supported by aluminum beams to prevent rusting.
Another unique architectural feature is the stairless interior, although the bedrooms are a half-story above the entry level. An AJC article in 1952, just after the home’s completion, describes the unique ramp feature and the varying reasons that each of the 6 family members enjoyed it.
4 beds, 3.5 baths, 3,257 sq.ft on an almost 20,000 sq.ft lot. Check out this property with a lot more information, photos and virtual tour at the website:
