Perched on a hill between Piedmont Park and Emory University, this custom contemporary from 2009 breaks the harsh-geometry mold of many new Atlanta moderns, while still embracing a minimalist palette that all but glows with natural light.
The starkness is softened by a smattering of timber beams, arranged in a pattern that continues into the patio. That space marries the interior with the courtyard’s pool and spa by way of huge, ubiquitous windows. Elsewhere, the entire home seems allergic to room-softening area rugs.
Two years ago, this four-bedroom, four-bathroom property didn’t move at $2.8 million. Now it’s back, amid a piping-hot housing market, for $300,000 less.
Designed by Atlanta architect Bradley Heppner (see additional pics over here), the home is said to offer a function-friendly "lifestyle," which Ludwig Mies van der Rohe adherents would probably appreciate.
The square footage appears to be top-secret, but it’s clearly a large home, with a full unfinished basement beneath it all.
