Bordering woods off Roswell Road, this 2004 four-bedroom capitalizes on its serene setting

Atlanta modern-home zealots unafraid of really standing out in what’s otherwise an idyllic, forested setting could be intrigued by this new Buckhead offering.

Emanating postmodern vibes since 2004, the four-bedroom property is nestled at 3911 Land O Lakes Drive, between Roswell Road and Ga. Highway 400, just east of Chastain Park. And it’s definitely a statement piece.

Neighboring homes generally lean more traditional, though there’s a sprinkling of other styles, including this updated midcentury modern next door, separated by the woods.

Speaking of, the 3,698-square-foot house capitalizes on its proximity to so many trees, via the atypical layout, the multitiered (and partially turfed) backyard and decks, and huge windows so common in contemporary architecture. Keeping so much white stucco clean in such a setting, however, must be challenging.

Curved, wood-clad walls off the foyer lead to the heart of the home.

In various places, the interior harkens a high-end spa, with no shortage of interesting wall-coverings. One highlight is a finished garage with cabinetry so sleek it could be mistaken for a swanky kitchen.

The property hit the market at $1.3 million in recent days with Ansley Atlanta Real Estate, for a breakdown of $351 per square foot.

Records indicate it last traded for $565,000 in the economic tarpits of 2011, obviously prior to substantial updates.
