How to make 1977 look cool again in Sandy Springs

Positioned on a Sandy Springs hilltop, between the 'hooch and The Perimeter, this five-bedroom contemporary from 1977 manages to look both cool and exactingly representative of the era. Beyond a few updated countertops, ceiling fans, and appliances, it wouldn't appear that much has changed with this artful, 4,590-square-foot sprawler in the last 40 years. From the Japanese maples girding the huge stone patio to the driftwood accents, Zen elements abound, and the flowing floorplan seems ahead of its time. Curiously, the listing mentions the "sweeping driveway" but offers no look at the front of the home. In any case, let's hope the not-cheap $899,000 listing price discourages some buyer from seeing a gut job here.
