Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright student Robert Green, this unusual home epitomizes Wright’s architectural style

For just the second time since it was built in 1980, this four-bedroom, six-bath Buckhead house designed by Georgia architect Robert Miller Green is available on the market, indeed the “rare opportunity” proclaimed in the listing.

A student of Frank Lloyd Wright, Green incorporated Lloyd’s design approach to create structures that worked and blended with their environment.

This approach is strongly reflected in this home’s natural materials, clean lines and geometric shapes, all reminiscent of Wright’s Usonian style.

The stone fireplace serves as the focal point in the home, from which three wings branch out. Hardwoods run along the floors and the ceilings, while floor-to-ceiling windows bring the outdoors in.

Each room flows effortlessly from one to the next, a common element in Wright’s designs. And the high, angled ceilings in some rooms seem to contradict the home’s low-pitched roof.

Lush landscaping surrounds the home, hiding the finished basement and three-car garage revealed by the driveway.

Outside the house, a saltwater swimming pool and patio are perfect for outdoor entertaining.

Sitting in the midst of two acres, the house is at once private and yet close to all that Buckhead has to offer. And for the asking price of $1,295,000, that could be a “rare opportunity” as well.
