This award-winning midcentury has been carefully remodeled, and even comes with a contemporary detached office in the backyard.

Inspired by the work of Joseph Eichler, architect-builder John Ahern created this three-bedroom, two-bath home in 1954. 

After being updated over the years with careful consideration, the 2,200-square-foot abode has appeared on HGTV and in several architecture magazines, and has even won the Historic Savannah Foundation President’s Award and Remodeler Magazine Silver Award.
