Inspired by architect Richard Meier, the High Museum of Art designer, this immaculate hilltop contemporary home rests on 2.21± gated, wooded acres which offer immense privacy. Post Modern in style, the home’s exterior consists of stark white bonded stucco contrasted by black railings, black cantilevered rooflines and punctuated by rectilinear windows. The occasional curvilinear feature adds an element of surprise to the home and illustrates the contemporary side of the architecture. Enter into the light-filled, two-story, 24-foot foyer where a serpentine staircase consisting of warm wood on cool metal draws the eye upward to the top of the scale of this grand entry. Directly off the foyer, the two-story dining room delights with a sinuous gallery overhang, access to a fully covered sunset lounge inviting to dine at a high bistro table, and doors to a second porch with an outdoor living space next to an outdoor kitchen with stainless steel countertops, a digital electric smoker, and a high BTU burner and gas grill, both attached to the house gas line. The renovated kitchen inside impresses with sleek lacquered flat-panel and full-height cabinetry, an 18-foot island with a waterfall edge, a Wolf gas range with a double oven, two Miele dishwashers, a warming drawer and a GE Monogram refrigerator. The sun-drenched casual dining area with a round chef’s table invites with a fireplace and access to the four-season porch and subsequent circular deck which extends above high ground to the fourth outdoor entertaining area. The interior of the home consists of large-scale entertaining rooms as well as intimate, everyday spaces, each with glass doors or endless windows providing a peek into the rooms beyond. This balance between open and closed elements is characteristic of Meiers’ style, and is illustrated throughout the home. Enjoy crisp white walls contrasted by rich hardwood floors in the entire house, three fireplaces, endless windows framing from floor to ceiling, tree-top views and monochromatic design choices throughout. Upstairs, relax in the sprawling two-level primary suite which boasts a vaulted bedroom with clerestory windows, a dual-sided fireplace, double closets and 1.5 bathrooms – the primary one with accordion doors opening to a completely private screened in porch high up in the tree-tops.rnAdditional details include a separate wing with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a living room, also functioning as private office with a lockable walk-inrncabinet space, a commercially equipped gym, Lutron-controlled lighting, seven Nest thermostats, a +1200-bottle climate-controlled wine cellar with display lighting and a two-car garage with a Siemens 220V-electric car charger. The$100K media room offers a 11.2 Dolby Atmos system, professionally tuned audio control amplification and 4K Sony laser projection for fully bright color ranges. Additionally, all the media room components were designed and fine tuned for the room by HiFi Buys owner Alan Jones in close collaboration with the current owner. Alan found the final product to be “one of the best home media rooms in Metro Atlanta.” Completely private and securely located at the end of the cul-de-sac, this home feels miles from the big city lifestyle yet is only minutes to Heards Ferry Elementary School, excellent private schools, Chastain Park, Buckhead, The Battery Atlanta, I-285 and I-75. This contemporary work of art makes you feel like you are on vacation in an oasis away from the world.
