Take a look inside this fully furnished and beautifully restored home at 3905 Paria Ridge Road in Atlanta, Ga. The luxury home sits on two acres of property. Each spacious room has a stunning view of the pool as well as the surrounding wooded area. Every room also has access to the newly designed pool deck.

The entire residence was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright’s protégé, Robert Green, one of Atlanta’s experts of modern architecture. Guests of the Midsummer Modern event were treated to what seemed like a gorgeous art gallery as they sipped rosé and viewed masterpieces from acclaimed artists like Harry Bertoia, George Nelson, Hugh Acton, Eero Saarinen, Herman Miller, Russel Wright, Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro, Ian Tyson, Salvador Dali, Paul Taylor, Tapio Wirkkala, Hendrik Van Keppel and Taylor Green. Visitors also listened to music by DJ Xzact.

Frank Lloyd Wright’s great-granddaughter, designer Melissa Galt, was the special guests at this year’s event. Galt is a designer with Burns Century, an independent design consultant based in Atlanta. The event was hosted by Debra Johnston, Luxury Real Estate Specialist with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Luxury Collection.

“The home is a mid-century masterpiece brought back to life and style by designer Burns Century in a thoughtful and thorough renovation. From the moment you step inside you feel a sense of calm and connection. The organic materials of stone, slate, river rock and expanses of glass truly bring the outdoors in and the geometry of the skylights creates a dance of light and shadow that is mesmerizing. While an open plan, it doesn’t suffer the challenges of many homes today that seem to be all one room. Instead, the living room is a step down from the dining, and the kitchen is just out of sight though not closed off by a door. There is an inviting flow and wonderful feeling of privacy and even mystery in the master bedroom wing. Additional bedrooms and baths are on the opposite side of the house, the perfect balance. It’s a house that welcomes one or one hundred with equal ease and doesn’t inform how you live as much as it accommodates and compliments your life,” said Galt.

The real estate team invited their Instagram giveaway winners to the special gathering. The winners indulged in a private catered dinner from Dennis Dean. They helped themselves to Hoisin Glazed Salmon Filet and Local Georgia Peach Caprese Salad. For dessert, they enjoyed a Fig and Almond Tart.
