Sherwood Forest Homes for Sale

Sherwood Forest (30309) is a prestigious Atlanta neighborhood established in 1949, just north of Ansley Park. The street names all reflect aspects of the Robin Hood legend, adding a cohesive and quaint character to the area. The architecture features many large midcentury-modern homes. There is one old homestead, however, which dates back to the late 1800s. Sherwood Forest is built on the estate of the Collier family. In the 1950s, Sherwood Forest became Atlanta’s poshest post-World War II subdivision. It was noted for its lavish Christmas decorations, which were judged and awarded prizes by the neighborhood. The traffic from people driving by to view the home decorations became so heavy in the late 1960s, that the awarding of prizes was discontinued.

Sherwood Forest is laid out in an automobile-oriented fashion, with wide driveways and beautiful curbing. Homes feature carefully manicured lawns and wide streets. It is amazingly close to Peachtree Street and Midtown on its western edge and the golf course and country club of the Ansley Golf Club on its eastern edge. If you like midcentury-modern architecture on a grand scale, Sherwood Forest is heaven for you.
