House Envy: This modern masterpiece was designed by Georgia architect Robert Green, one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s last apprentices.
If you’re a fan of renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright, then this midcentury-modern home in Buckhead may be the closest thing to his work you’ll find in Atlanta. Designed by Robert M. Green, a native Georgian who apprenticed under Wright in the late 1950s, the 5,100-square-foot abode displays all the elements of his trademark organic architecture, including the use of wood, water, metal, stone, concrete, glass, and light to create a serene sanctuary that infuses nature into every room.
The four-bedroom, six-bath home, built in 1980, is situated on a 2.09-acre lot in Buckhead, near Paces Ferry and Mount Paran roads. Its unique layout includes three wings. The living wing, anchored by a massive stone fireplace, features soaring wood ceilings, George Nelson pendant lighting, and triangular window cut-outs. It incorporates a spacious living area, an open dining room, and a temperature-controlled wine gallery with black slate flooring.
The chef’s kitchen has custom cabinets, leathered granite countertops, a coffee station, two dishwashers, a teak bar, and top-of-the-line appliances. The kitchen, dining room, and family room open onto the terrace and pool area, complete with waterfalls and a sun deck.
The master wing includes a spacious bedroom with wood-planked vaulted ceilings, a private wrap-around patio, and additional space that can be used as a sitting room or office. The spa bath boasts a steam shower with wi-fi speakers, a separate vanity area, two dressing rooms, and a Zen-like bathing room with Ipe flooring, skylights, and chromotherapy.
This Buckhead home, located at 3905 Parian Ridge Road, is on the market for $2,725,000. For more information, contact Debra Johnston of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Luxury Collection.
