If only every house was just like this one! This true-to-form, Mid-Century Modern home was designed by Atlanta’s own renowned architect Kenneth Johnson (more about him on the docomomoga.org website). Custom-built for the original owners in 1956, this home is everything you’ve ever dreamed of finding in your MCM abode, and oh so much more! Not only will you be the envy of all your friends given this home’s undeniable Atomic Ranch-worthy street cred, but on top of that, this address has got a premium IN-TOWN location, close to Emory, CDC, Whole Foods, Midtown, VA-highlands, and more!
Take one step over the threshold onto the polished stone foyer and you’ll be transported back to a time when martinis were shaken, not stirred, and it was always 5 o’clock somewhere. You’ll think you have died and gone to Mad-Men heaven! As you look around you, wondering just where that martini is, you’ll feel start to feel it – a lightness and brightness that comes from this home’s amazing natural light and harmonious flow with the nature. Floor-to-ceiling windows in the huge “Recreation Room” overlook the tranquil, landscaped backyard, complete with your own mossy hillside and al fresco dining area. Please, pick you chin up off the ground – we’ve got more house to explore!
Having only had two owners, this home has undergone a loving restoration in recent years to return it to its original splendor. The stunning, ORIGINAL, walnut kitchen cabinets, and rich mahogany paneling have all been refinished by hand – they look brand new! Mid-century meets modern with the updated Fisher & Paykel appliances that have been carefully selected to fit the original kitchen dimensions. You get the best of both worlds: top-on-the-line quality without compromising Mr. Johnson’s design aesthetic.
Float through the four rooms upstairs, taking it all in, but spend some extra time in the fabulous master suite. Understated and clean in its composition and finishes, it’s naturally lit by the simple, single overhead skylight and tasteful, frosted-glass windows that let in the light while keeping out the looky-loos. This is where you go to get away from it all! Head downstairs to the finished basement, complete with a full bathroom, more gigantic windows, and a stone accent wall. It’s the perfect place to stash the in-laws when they come to town!
This Mid-Century Modern home is an oasis that features professional landscaping and plenty of extra storage, along with a NEW Commercial Roof and Galvalume gutters! Oh, and all the Nelson lighting you noticed throughout the house? IT STAYS!!! Don’t wait another second. Pick up the phone and call your Realtor right now because I promise you, this one-of-a-kind modern dream will be under contract in the blink of an eye!
