1932 Atlanta mansion added to US historic register

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - A sprawling English Regency-style home built in Atlanta in 1932 has been added to the official list of America's architectural treasures.

The National Register of Historic Places added the May Patterson Goodrum House earlier this month. The home with its 2 ½-story central area and two large side wings was designed by the prominent Georgia architect Philip Trammell Shutze. It sits on a 5-acre lot fronting West Paces Ferry Road in Atlanta, not far from the governor's mansion.

The home was built for the widow of Atlanta businessman James J. Goodrum not long after his death. It remains in private ownership and last sold in 2009 for $3.5 million.

The Goodrum house is also known as the Peacock House for the colorful birds that were once kept in the yard.
