Own a piece of Hickory's history! This classic Mid-Century Modern was the personal home of famed Modernist architect Jim Sherrill. Built to house his young family in 1956, this home still remains in his family and retains all of its original modernist design. This cantilevered structure appears to "float" over its basement walls and offers one-level living with partial unfinished basement. Inside, the open-concept design was decades ahead of its time, and offers a two-sided fireplace facing both a living room and den with adjoining dining area and kitchen. A central hallway leads to three bedrooms and two bathrooms, one with elevated tub for ease of "bathing babies." Relax on the private rear patio, surrounded by trees on this wooded, 1.11 acre double lot. The lower level offers a double carport and 673 SF unfinished space. Located in Hillcrest, this home is within walking distance to Oakwood Elementary, downtown farmer's market, dining, and shopping!
