A striking modern proposal billing itself as “Villa Atlanta” is gunning to be the priciest example of the genre sold in the city for quite some time.

Listed this week at $3.3 million, the four-bedroom modern with a throwback carport and sliced-lemon of a swimming pool is planned for a wooded lot just north of Lenox Road, with the future backyard wrapped by a curving segment of PATH400.

That may or may not qualify as a plus in Buckhead.

Beneath its dramatic, swooping roof, the Villa would encompass 4,344 square feet, promising “sculptural forms” by architect Michael Sizemore for Buckhead’s “changing market.”

Once the pesky trees are gone (if they haven’t been cleared from the $575,000 lot now), “new skyline views never seen before will be revealed,” the listing promises.

The roofline, at least, recalls the 2003 modern home of Dallas Austin, up the road in Sandy Springs, which once was rented by pre-comeback Justin Bieber.

Elsewhere in Buckhead, a 1982 compound by renowned Laguna Beach architect Fredd Briggs might be the only modern to move for more in recent years. It fetched $3.6 million in 2016, records indicate.
