“This is art.”

That’s the listing agent’s punchy assessment of this hill-hugging Buckhead modern from 1966, which has been reimagined or renovated from the depths of its Pebble Tec pool to the commercial-grade roofing.

But so far, homebuyers of Atlanta haven’t exactly been art collectors.

Girded by handsome, curving stone walls and chockfull of huge windows, the property listed a year ago this month at $1,795,000, took a breather, and re-listed in July for $100,000 cheaper. That tactic apparently didn’t net a serious buyer, and the listing was yanked just before Christmas.

Now it’s back for an even $1.7 million.

What’s changed? Fresh listing photos capture less clutter fuss—and more tulips—this time around, emphasizing the low-slung front exterior and intricate interior woodwork. What hasn't changed? The square footage appears to remain a guarded secret.

Find the four-bedroom, four-bathroom home tucked away in Mt. Paran, due west of Chastain Park, in the pricey 30327 zip code recently declared one of America’s 100 wealthiest.

Its Asian theme begins at the entryway, which opens to reveal floating stairs that don’t impede views to the pool and woods beyond.

Pretty walnut flooring leads to a peerless dual-sink kitchen with a bank of floor-to-ceiling windows, Poggenpohl cabinetry, and Miele appliances.

Other attractions include the redone master bathroom’s views to a serene garden, the upstairs library’s fireplace, and a towering great room with verdant views that don’t quit.

This general area of Atlanta is dotted with four-bedroom properties in the $1.7 million stratosphere at the moment, but nothing with character so midcentury-contemporary cool as this.
