A few blocks uphill from Piedmont Park, this recently built, tri-level modern doesn’t exactly specialize in subtlety.
And it probably doesn’t care.
In creating such a “stunning” geometric statement, the listing assures us that “no expense was spared, from the 36 [inch] footers to the 2-by-6 framing,” and surely in-home elevators don’t come cheap either, right? The lot itself cost nearly a half-million bucks back in 2014 — the going rate for basically any sizable amount of Virginia-Highland dirt.
Thus the asking price of $1.65 million.
This splashy four-bedroom residence spans 4,100 square feet, and each floor has a private deck overlooking the infinity pool. Skinny-dipping would be discouraged down there, as the pool’s platform patio offers little in the way of privacy.
The highlight is probably the pool area’s seamless transition — via accordion glass doors — to the primo, dual-sink kitchen, with its Thermador appliances and endless cabinetry. Beneath a butterfly roof, the third-floor wet bar is nice touch, especially for tipsy guests who can’t manage the stairs.
Zillow indicates the home listed for $50,000 less last summer but was pulled after two months.
Most would agree the property casts a better profile from the back than the front. It’s a case where swooping drone footage — set to a bouncy dance track — is absolutely appropriate.
