Behold more than $1M in landscaping alone

One of Buckhead’s most notable modern-traditional amalgamations has returned to the market with a fresh face.

Fronting Tuxedo Road, the 6,749-square-foot property blends an early 1970s house with striking contemporary facets added in recent years. It last traded for $2 million in September 2017, according to property records.

Since then, it’s been simplified with a cleaner interior aesthetic and exterior adjustments to windows and more. The result? A “work of modern art” that’s “finer than anything you could dream up for yourself,” according to the Hirsh Real Estate Group listing.

Offered this week at $5,295,000, although it’s not quite finished, the remodel counts five bedrooms and five full bathrooms, plus two half-baths.

Using woods to warm up steel windows and so much white, the project was a collaboration by Benecki Fine Homes, interior designer Melanie Turner, and architects Ruard Veltman and William T. Baker.

As of right now, 3627 Tuxedo Road joins about 15 finished single-family homes listed north of $5 million on Atlanta’s open market. All of them are in—or adjacent to—Buckhead.

But $5M+ Atlanta properties aren’t always the easiest sell, no matter how artful. Only a half-dozen houses have achieved that amount in the past year.

A steel, pivoting door welcomes in visitors from a limestone courtyard. The use of Venetian plaster throughout the main floor is meant to soothe.
Marble and custom cabinetry in the kitchen.
A breakfast nook like few others.
Living room views toward a patio and pool, through more frames of steel.
The master bedroom, a gallery of huge windows.

Steelwork continues in the shower surrounds of the master bathroom.
