In the early 1950’s, prolific and visionary architect Edward Fickett, FAIA, teamed with builder Ray Hommes to create "Sherman Park", an enclave of affordable mid-century modern homes that introduced modernism to a rapidly growing middle class.  With signature Fickett elements including post and beam construction, open floor plan, walls of glass and clean, uncluttered lines, this appropriately expanded home features a fantastic master suite with sitting room, ample closets and updated bath, two additional bedrooms, updated guest bath and brick-floored bonus/family room with fireplace and period built-ins. All public areas open to a wide, manicured back yard with large pool and freestanding cabana. Upgrades include copper plumbing, HVAC and electrical, pool equipment, stainless kitchen appliances, laundry room off kitchen, cool rock roof and carport. As relevant today as when these homes were built, a quote from the original sales brochure reads:  “Some fellow has said, ‘I don’t want to be a millionaire...I just want to live like one.” You still can.
