Rare Marietta Modern Hits the Market

An immaculate contemporary home located on a cul-de-sac in the Atlanta Country Club neighborhood is waiting for a lover of all things mod.

When one thinks of Marietta architecture and culture, we usually get visions of white columns, grand porticos, Mint Juleps and hoop skirts dancing in our heads. Well, if clean lines, dramatic angles, dry martinis and polyester are more your style, we’ve found a California contemporary worth more than a second look. It’s a rare “upside down house,” meaning the living room, dining room and master are on the main and the other four bedrooms and baths are located downstairs, a classic contemporary feature we love, oh-so-Hollywood Hills.

Listed at $749,900, the open and bright home is located in the tony area of the Atlanta Country Club and enjoys one heck of a sweeping view of the Chattahoochee River Valley and nearby golf course when the leaves aren’t providing ample shade and privacy. The large and open kitchen was fully renovated and includes all new stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and maple wood cabinets. It also has a butler’s pantry and a large master bath that has a separate whirlpool tub and shower.

Roll out the shag rug, throw down the bean bag chairs and have happy hour and fondue in front of the dramatic floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace. Or perhaps you’d prefer cocktails on the wraparound porch overlooking the pool. (Caveat: The listing agent says it's in need of a little TLC.) Back inside, skylights and large windows provide an abundance of natural light.

As it was built in 1972, we’re conjuring visions of a reinvented and always stylish Don Draper settling down in the South, a Georgia Peach at his side coming home to his new home amongst the hardwoods. Ring-a-ding-ding, doll. 

The home is located at 731 Burning Tree Drive in Marietta, a suburb of Atlanta. See the complete listing at Harry Norman Realtors.
