Described as a “true masterpiece” of design, craftsmanship, and detailing, Virginia-Highland’s second priciest listing at the moment pays homage to the prairie architectural style pioneered by Frank Lloyd Wright.

Beneath pronounced eves, this 2011 residence stands on pleasant, median-divided Lanier Boulevard, due east of Piedmont Park between North Highland Avenue and Briarcliff Road.

With five bedrooms across more than 5,400 square feet, it’s a whopper of a prairie, with three levels of living space and a long driveway (with three-car garage) alongside manicured gardens.

After eight years, the overall condition here is described as “pristine,” while the front of the home, like some interior lines, appears angled, ostensibly to maximize the site.

Rich, dark woods abound, bolstering the Arts & Crafts appeal, for fans of that. Plusses include the top-flight kitchen, screened porch, and the home gym and wine cellar on the terrace level.

It listed about a week ago though Engel & Volkers Intown Atlanta for $1,950,000.

Moldings abound, off the entry and porch.
Lounging spaces and wood-coffered ceilings, an Arts & Crafts hallmark.
Generous amounts of wood continue in the dual-sink kitchen.
Tucked-away, wallpapered dining room and stairs up and down.
A screened porch off the back.
