This updated 1950 property is promising echoes of Eichler within shouting distance of Midtown sky-rises.

Find it tucked in affluent Sherwood Forest, a circa-1949 neighborhood bordering Ansley Park where dynamite midcentury-modern renovations have graced the local market in recent yeas.

This one is marketed as a three-bedroom gem with “singular Palm Springs style,” spanning 2,731 square feet with primary rooms that blend swimmingly with each other—and with the outdoor spaces beyond the ample glass. It’s one-level living with abundant nooks and recessed lighting for displaying art collections.

The listing touts proximity to Piedmont Park, the Beltline, and Atlanta Botanical Garden, but (understandably) not the “car-dependent” 35 WalkScore. Which isn’t unexpected with a neighborhood layout that opted for larger yards over sidewalks.

A hindrance could be that buyers in this bracket typically want more than two and 12 bathrooms. And the curvy (albeit pro-grade) kitchen might not be to all tastes.

But the many attributes begin with the iconic curb appeal and continue to the two outdoor terraces (one with hot tub) and two-car garage (not pictured).

Inside, the inimitable fireplaces, custom closets, and heated floors of the master bathroom qualify as wins.

So it might not be Palms Springs (especially sans pool), but it certainly isn’t Powder Springs, either.
