Modern enthusiasts of Atlanta in the mood for a custom floorplan with handmade windows for miles could be in luck on Overbook Drive in Collier Hills.
Tucked off Northside Drive, this three-level contemporary dwelling from 2016 backs up to Atlanta Memorial Park, near the end with a tennis center and a finished spur of the Beltline’s Northside Trail.
Visitors are greeted by sophisticated landscaping, tiered with walls of CorTen steel, and towering iron windows that preview the interior and its elaborate, modern-industrial staircase.
One high point, literally, is the great room, with its 16-foot ceilings, built-ins, and brick fireplace for warmth (literally and figuratively). That space adjoins the kitchen, where lower ceilings add a little compress-release coziness and the marble shines next to Wolf appliances.
Other perks include the spa-sized shower in the master (this door-shunning room also has a fireplace) and the fact that two other bedrooms boast en suite situations as well. From the back, the massive windows allow for Buckhead and golf-course views, but in general, they could make privacy tricky without mucking up their aesthetics with massive curtains.
Another sticking point could be that the home’s proportions—coupled with another newer modern next door, on what used to be a single lot—didn’t leave much room for a garage, which fits a single car.
This much one-off style in Collier Hills (with an Eames chair shy of 3,100 feet, no less) comes at a price, of course.
And that price is $1,199,000, as listed this past weekend.
