For $2.9M, Buckhead contemporary brings touches ‘rarely seen in Atlanta’

Six-bedroom dwelling near Chastain Park includes infinity saltwater pool, vast living spaces

A contemporary house for sale in Buckhead for nearly $3 million.

A Frisbee’s flight west of Chastain Park, this mondo contemporary dwelling bucks the stucco-heavy trend of many new Atlanta moderns, incorporating stone and glass for an experience that aims to meld the indoors with what’s outside.

That experience won’t come cheap, of course, as the six-bedroom property is the upscale neighborhood’s second priciest built home at moment—and one of a dozen listed north of $2 million.

Records indicate this angular compound—punctuated by a metal upper roof, rain-chain downspouts, and a rather stylish carport that previews the three-car garage—was finished in 2017, with an infinity saltwater pool and spa added this year.

The grounds are a study in luscious lawns, palms, and manicured native trees. From the covered, upper porch that really wraps around to the backyard dining and pool seating options, the property doesn’t lack for outdoor hangs, either.

Buyers pining for snuggly traditionalism might gasp at the vast white interior, but it’d be tougher to scoff at the kitchen’s Gaggenau appliances, SieMatic cabinetry from German, and Neolith countertops, which are known for extreme durability.

Other plusses include the vast banks of folding glass doors, collectively resulting in what the listing describes, debatably, as the “most extraordinary finishes and sought-after design rarely seen in Atlanta.”

The square footage isn’t disclosed. And some bedrooms have what look like—but can’t possibly be, at this price point—manufactured wood flooring.

The WalkScore of 13 won’t float the boats of many urbanophiles, the types who typically don’t have a spare $2.9 million lying around anyhow.
