Featured Home: Artistically Advanced Modernism in BuckheadMay 7, 2009
Clean and unspoiled. Edgy and environmental. Modern design uses less energy and produces less waste boosting performance efficiency without excessive costs.
We know this, yet to experience a structure where you can literally walk through art is humbling. As M.C. Escher said, “I walk around in mysteries.” You will agree when you view the M.C. Esher-stylized staircase, the grand entry with medieval double doors, arched paneling, stained concrete floors, and spaces that literally pull you into balance with strong, forceful interior lines juxtaposed against the exterior’s organic beauty of nature.
You’ll appreciate a striking visual in each room – dark cherry hardwoods, radiant floors, richly colored accent walls that encourage your entrepreneurial spirit. The ultra sleek chef’s kitchen with Bosch appliances, Thermador fridge, mouthwatering cabinet space, island pantry, stone counter tops and wine rack was created for the discerning. Whip up a cappuccino there or relax in your separate dining space that seats 12.
Fireplaces add an additional element of energy to the great room and living room. Niles built-in speakers, wine collector’s room, full-home wiring and eight security cameras with infrared are all exactly what you would have requested.
Retreat to your master on the main with split bedroom plan that provides extra privacy and wake to the invigoration of a luxurious bathroom with bidet, double vanity chicly squared, sep tub/shower and whirlpool tub all created from lavish materials where color, light and material contrast creating a ‘subtle war between man’s vision and nature’s delights.’
Outside you’ll find planned rock gardens striking between the soft and lush, hard and angled. The negative edge outdoor pool with architectural pouring beam that defies gravity is heated for cool morning exercise. Deck, gas grill, 2-car garage attached.
