Fans of daring modern architecture and vast expanses of intown land could find a 4.5-acre slice of eden here in Buckhead.

Tucked among stately West Wesley Road manors, this 2011 project by the Dencity firm occupies a corner lot between Interstate 75 and the ’hooch.

Marketed as a “modern architectural masterpiece” and nicknamed “Outside In” for so many expansive windows, the dwelling makes a minimalistic statement while offering a wealth of clean-lined outdoor spaces for taking in the backyard serenity.

Perks include an elevator to all three levels, a large rooftop terrace with fireplace and forested views, an ancillary kitchen for food prep and industrial-grade dish cleansing, and the rare breakfast nook that just might qualify as sexy.

It listed this week for $3.2 million.

Beside a swanky pool, below an immense linear deck, about the last thing buyers would expect is an 81-year-old Lord and Burnham greenhouse. But this classic and functional little relic was indeed spared.

The property might be immense, but the home itself actually isn’t: three bedrooms (plus an office/library), three and a half bathrooms, and a wide-pine plank shy of 3,000 square feet.

The property’s Nancy Creek Road frontage after completion in 2011.
