This Modern Monster in Buckhead Could be Tornado-Proof

New, 6 comments


In the bitchin' parlance of the '80s, this contemporary giant in Buckhead's Pine Hills neighborhood is a little bombdigity and barf me out. With its full-frontal column, array of street-facing windows and dramatic roofline, this $899,000 new listing looks like the wing of a university science building, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Built in 1983, the five-bedroom house — a 5,318-square-foot geometry puzzle, really — has been skillfully updated, though aspects of it still echo the whacky, coked-up decadence of the time. See the soaring living room, two-story windows and master bedroom that encompasses its own wing. Don't mind the Room of Mirrors, the glass-block wall and that ubiquitous, tile-like carpeting. A Zen-like back patio cuts into the landscape, with one misplaced slate tile that would drive OCD buyers insane. That leads to a deck and, unexpectedly, a little playground. Noted designer Herbert Brito did the renovation (as with this Midtown penthouse), incorporating elements like Poggenpohl kitchen cabinets, marble counters and two ovens. Which should help get the party started if Crockett and Tubbs drop by.
