We think that owning a Buckhead home designed by Mooney
would be like living in a piece of art. Nestled in the woods on Dawn Lane is a
concrete, stucco tree house and a modern lover’s dream realized. Situated on
over an acre, the home is secluded and private, yet convenient to all that
Buckhead has to offer. It is also located in the desirable Morris Brown
Elementary School and Sutton Middle School districts.
The 3,300-square modern was built in 1978 and has four
bedrooms and three baths. The dining room enjoys a vaulted ceiling and
expansive views of the mature hardwoods that surround the property. Off the
dining room is a breakfast area surrounded by large windows and an adjacent
enclosed patio. All those windows allow for plenty of natural light that accents the coziness of the living room and its fireplace.
It has a private in-law suite, a large deck, a groovy wall of glass bricks a la “Less Than Zero” and hip wet bar ready for entertaining. The floors are tiled and carpeted.
We’d like to see the kitchen updated and enlarged, but overall, we’d love to call Dawn Lane, a Mooney original, home.
