Around the corner from Vinings’ walkable core, this newly constructed Atlanta residence melds spartan modern design with a bucolic setting that includes direct access to a winding stretch of the Chattahoochee River.
Situated among traditional mansions on nearly an acre and ½ of rare flat land, the house was designed by Artifex, a firm specializing in home remodels and more commercial development in the west metro.
The firm’s experience with light industrial and office projects shows with the no-frills exterior (and enough parking for a small company in the 12-car garage at base level). That continues in the two-story foyer, with its glass-elevator tube and sturdy floating stairs of steel and oak.
Inside, it’s more approachably modern. Throughout the home, light pours in across French Oak wide-plank flooring from numerous oversized windows, and an indoor-outdoor living room combo includes views to the river.
All told, there’s three bedrooms, three and ½ bathrooms, and 5,000 square feet—almost all of it situated on a single level.
The floorplan includes a full master wing for privacy and a butler’s pantry large enough for a fridge and freezer. Even the garage has speakers looped into the whole-house stereo system for upping the party vibes, which could help atone for the lack of a pool.
“You rarely see these high-tech features and stunning designs at such an incredible riverfront location,” notes the listing.
The Atlanta address, which includes relatively low Cobb County taxes, is roughly a mile from the scenic hiker's wonderland that is Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area.
The property last sold for $950,000 two years ago—at lot value without the current home, according to listing agent Carol Copeland, a Realtor with Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty.
The new sales price, as posted this week, is $3.8 million. Have a closer look at the unique 'hooch-side offering in the gallery.
