Carved into a hill on Hosea Williams Drive, this unabashedly modern, tri-level offering in Edgewood is seeking buyers who appreciate bold design, high-tech features, and what the listing coins as “above average quality details.”

With a listing price of $595,000—or $270 per square foot—that’s good to know.

Designed by Gary Retel, the architect behind this rare Inman Park modern from 1999, the four-bedroom home is more geometrically daring than other new moderns that’ve popped up in this general price range from East Atlanta to Candler Park.

Perks less obvious than 10-foot ceilings, large windows, and grey-oak flooring include sustainable design and smart technology aspects described as “passive solar, Mitsubishi VRF Heat/Cool, Energy Star, LED, and WiFi control.”

With 2,200 square feet, it’s not huge by Atlanta new-build standards, but the space appears to have been maximized (see: office nook).

Other noteworthy facets include the stylish floating stairs, an unusual front patio that’s sunken into the yard, and that jazzy backsplash that provides visual interest among so much white.

Poised around the corner from Moreland Avenue and the Edgewood Retail District, it’s walking distance to the Eastside Trail’s new leg via Reynoldstown—with crucial access to multiple Mattress Firms in seconds by car.

And now for a gallery of renderings and floorplans:
