Despite its proximity to busy Northside Drive, this distinctive Buckhead modern from 2004 is positioned in a way—and surrounded by enough greenery—to feel like a mountain getaway, per the listing.
Its owner is described as “an internationally known fashion photographer,” and both exterior and interior spaces—largely undecorated—could serve as backdrops, or “singular vignettes,” should the home be used for professional and personal purposes, the marketing continues.
Just don’t expect the feeling of a warm embrace, which clearly wasn’t the intent when this dwelling was built 15 years ago.
It’s set away from Northside Drive on a palm-studded half-acre that incorporates another metal, Cor-Ten steel, into the sloped front yard. A huge courtyard helps detach the house from the road’s commotion, too.
Beneath a ski-slope angular roof, the two-story property is said be unlike anything else in Buckhead, as modern spaces go, counting three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms in 2,736 square feet.
The kitchen and bathrooms appear to have been either updated or tweaked, lending a refined contrast to the rawer look of so much concrete, steel, and stone. Around back, find a large patio with a koi pond and relatively flat upper yard that enhances privacy.
Like materials used to create the home, options for living here are varied.
Purchasing outright costs $1.2 million, as posted by Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty in recent days.
For executives (or actors) in need of shorter-term intown accommodations more spacious than a Midtown condo, the listing says the home can be rented for $9,000 monthly.
But longer leasing commitments—$7,000 monthly for two to six months; $6,000 monthly for between six months and a year—would bring that hefty rent requirement down.
