A new airbnb listing should appeal to fans of progressive architecture, CorTen steel and the grandeur of autumn in the North Georgia Mountains. We featured this award-winning modernist compound by Atlanta architects Mack Scogin and Merrill Elam back in May, when it was on the market for $1 million. Now, the new owners tell Curbed Atlanta a detached one-bedroom retreat — the "Tree House," a cantilevered glass box that floats amid a forest of towering poplars — is available for a nightly fee of $250. It features a large slate-and-steel terrace, artful bamboo arrangements and a bathroom door that swings open to allow for the sensation of showering in nature. It's all tucked in the Appalachian foothills near the North Carolina border, about an hour and 45 minutes from downtown Atlanta. Owner Steven Bennett, who closed on the 5,000-square-foot compound in July, said a second guest property, the Pond House, will go live on airbnb soon. "We've been longtime admirers of (the architects') work," said Bennett, "and feel fortunate to now own the property."
