Imagine finding the rarest, larger than most and nearly original mid-century modern architecturally significant home in Buckhead. Located in the Kingswood neighborhood right off West Paces Ferry and on one private acre. Architect Bill Finch designed this home in 1958 situated perfectly on the property. Mr. Finch and his architectural firm, Finch, Alexander, Barnes, Rothschild and Paschal is best known for the design of Coca-Cola’s world headquarters. Their specialty was corporate headquarters and sports stadiums. Perhaps that explains the scale of this residence, refreshingly large with at least 10′ ceilings. Central to the house are large open spaces with rare architecturally designed ceilings with 14′ ceiling with clear story windows that maximize the natural lighting and open to expansive decks that connect off the back of the house. Most rooms have doors that open to patios. Hardwood floors throughout and large-scale rooms create an incredible living environment with most rooms that open to outdoor spaces. In 2000, architect Peter Block restored the house for the current owner, primarily the kitchen and the primary bedroom suite which has an oversized dressing room, a vaulted Pecky cypress ceiling in the bedroom, sitting room and double doors that open to a private patio. The bathroom has heated stone floors, large shower, and separate tub. The kitchen has cypress cabinets and tumbled travertine heated flooring and features a large walk-in pantry. Downstairs is an area for a gym and two large light filled rooms for an additional office or play space. Huge storage rooms. A private walnut study is off by itself on the wing to the primary bedroom suite with views out to the private zen gardens. The meditation/prayer room has ancient wood doors that open to a private patio. Heated stone floors and a dome ceiling that creates the perfect acoustic sound in the room. The guest casita is attached to the residence by the carport and has a bedroom/living room with heated stone floors and a full bath. There is room for a pool and plenty of privacy. Incredible location just minutes from Buckhead, great restaurants and the best schools Atlanta has to offer. This is a rare opportunity to own an incredible mid-century modern architecturally designed home.
