Shiplap, artfully arranged branches, and statuesque piles of firewood aren’t the first elements most people would expect in this high-style modern dwelling a couple of blocks south of Piedmont Park.

But such is the case, and the aesthetic surprises hardly stop there.

It last traded in 2013, and the designer who inhabits this four-bedroom, four-bathroom residence has been upgrading since, per the listing.

Lording over Vedado Way and boasting an 85 WalkScore, the 3,129-square-footer counts a soaring great room with ceilings that must be pushing 20 feet, where the chef’s kitchen and cozy dining section lead to a large entertainer’s balcony.

Below that, al fresco dining is an option in the bamboo-shaded backyard.

On the second floor, find a spacious media room and office combo (with firewood storage!), plus horizontal windows that carry throughout. One bedroom is fashioned as a dark-walled gym at the moment, while another, smaller space without windows could work for interrogations.

The top-floor master suite defines contemporary elegance, with its wood-burning stove and yet another balcony option.

Given the uniqueness of style and spatiality here, the listing agent predicts, “This home won’t last long!”

But at $1.3 million—and $415 per square foot—the asking price isn’t exactly peanuts.
