Designed by architect Stephen Rhoads in the modernist style,this secluded home sits high above a winding drive,taking full advantage of its elevation on 2+ acres,and is slowly revealed as you and your guests proceed up the private drive.
To the right of the foyer, step down into the grand living room with hardwood floors,one of the homes two fireplaces,and a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows that overlooks the pool and beautiful natural landscaping.On the right side of the living room is an elevated area that houses the piano and shelves to display books and art.
To the right of the fireplace wall is the entrance to the very spacious master suite with walls of windows that also overlook the pool and garden. The large master bath features double vanities, separate tub and an incredible shower with glass brick and tile walls.A large walk-in closet tops off this grand suite.
Ascend the impressive entry through the large entry door and proceed up the interior stairs and be prepared to be awed by the three-story atria with a glass barrel vaulted ceiling that floods the entry and living room with light. As you stand in the entry foyer you will see to your right an open circle with a 1920 mission period grate at one time a transom cover that allows you to view the living room.Straight ahead on the stairway you will find a custom designed wrought iron rail by Atlanta artist Tom Prochnow.
To the left of the foyer,you will find the ample yet cozy formal dining room with floor-to-ceiling windows and French door leading to the front deck. You will also find the very large and efficient kitchen in black and white tile with white Corian counters,an abundance of cabinet space and top-of-the- line appliances.
The kitchen overlooks the large, comfortable family room that features the second fireplace.There are built-in cabinets that flank both sides of the fireplace,and the floor-to-ceiling windows with French doors overlook the garden and pool.
The upper floor houses three spacious bedrooms and two large bath rooms. Each room features large windows, making these rooms bright and airy. One of the bedrooms,currently used as a home office,has French doors that opens to a private balcony.
The lower level features a large bonus room that could be used as a media room or exercise room with loads of built-in storage.There is also a laundry room and an additional room currently used as a dark room for photography.The entrance to the clean,two-car garage is also on this level.
The grounds are incredible with a 20 gunite pool with a flagstone deck and beautiful natural gardens all around.This is truly a magnificent home for those with a taste for modernist design.
