Designed by Philip Shutze, one of Atlanta's most beloved architects of the 20th century, and recently remastered by Stan Dixon, this home is a humanist architecture masterpiece reminiscent of the Italian villas that inspired Shutzes' work and that set the tone for Atlanta's most beautiful residential neighborhoods. Spanning 2.68 acres, completely private and enclosed, this property is truly in a class of its own. Entirely unique and meticulously crafted by hand, it is exquisite on every level. Located in one of the very best neighborhoods, in one of the best parts of one of the best streets, where Blackland Road meets Tuxedo Road, you are surrounded by babbling brooks, rolling hills and tall trees, but also nearby the cultural and city conveniences of Buckhead, Atlanta. Bespoke interiors, designed by internationally acclaimed interior designer Tammy Connor, include custom fabrics and drapery, intricate stone and wood work, naturally patinated brass fixtures and custom cabinetry with luxurious hardware. Delightful surprises are found throughout the home, including a cheeky prohibition bar, hidden guest rooms and smartly tucked away staff and nannies' quarters. Additional features that make the home so livable and adapted to today's lifestyle include a butler's kitchen, a sunny breakfast room with patio, an over-sized laundry room, multiple studies and home offices, and plenty of outdoor entertaining areas. Built solidly over a piece of natural granite and made modern with sustainable principles in mind, this home also lives lightly on the Earth, using a geo-thermal heating and cooling system, a water reclamation and storage system and building materials that will last for generations to come. An over-sized three car-garage with Tesla and Porsche electric car charging stations, HVAC, Control4 security system, a golf cart garage/workshop and additional parking for 9 vehicles completes the terrace level features. Beyond the garden style pool and lounge area, there is an English greenhouse, designed by Hartley Botanic, a whimsical children's treehouse and a glass cabin with a wood burning stove constructed with local reclaimed hardwoods. Each detail inside and out has been designed and executed flawlessly for a timeless, elegant and welcoming effect.
