PRICE REDUCED! This innovative mid-century modern home, also known as ”The Stream House, ” was designed by renowned architect, Bernard A. Webb. Built and featured in House Beautiful magazine during the 1950’s, this house was Webb’s personal home. With its location in mind, he created this revolutionary design for cooling comfort. Webb’s aim in designing a climate-wise house was to create an oasis within the tepid climate of Macon, Georgia. He used the surrounding foliage to his advantage by setting the house in a valley and shading it under a canopy of trees. A design ahead of its time, it boasts a pooled/cooling area, created from a natural flowing stream, that waterfalls just below the home. Materials of stone, slate, and heart of pine allow a continuum of nature indoors. Webb’s design resulted in picturesque bedroom views as well as soothing acoustics provided by the cascading waterfall feature.
Recent updates have enhanced and preserved this timeless treasure. Just a few updates include: mechanical, electrical, septic, new roof, kitchen updates, new pantry with washer and dryer, fresh paint, new office, owner’s bedroom and guest bedroom renovations. The current owners have also recently constructed a new deck with teak railing that compliments the outdoor seating and spa areas. Situated in historic Shirley Hills, this relaxing retreat exudes glamour and style like no other. With parks and nature trails nearby, this landmark is truly a haven. To add to its accolades, in 2021, The Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation showcased this home during their Fall Ramble. This is a tremendous opportunity to become the caretaker and owner of such a legendary home!
