Tucked among some of Atlanta's most lavish estates in Tuxedo Park, this modern renovation of a neo-traditional house won an AIA Design Award in 2004, but a decade later it's struggling to find the right Buckhead buyer. Listed in early October at $3.3 million, the property underwent a $305,000 price-chop last week, making it slightly less unattainable. This five-bedroom, 4,800-square-foot French Art Deco estate's dramatic overhaul is the work of Dwell darling James Choate, of the Atlanta firm Surber Barber Choate & Hertlein Architects. The smooth stucco, metal casement windows and slate roof lend a sleek contemporary look that continues inside, with tiger-wood hallways and one dazzling architectural flourish after another. The wooded, 1-acre property includes a saltwater pool and grounds that are nothing short of magnificent. If there's a downside, it's the Montana-level Walk Score of 1, and the fact that a buyer will have to shell about $2,000 monthly in property taxes alone.
