Debra Johnston of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia sold this spectacular modern residence in Atlanta that was designed by AIA Robert Tretsch III, Harrison Design in 2020, and built by ADCO Properties, LLC. The closing price was $3.7 million.

"It was a true honor to represent this listing that was home to the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Designer Showhouse," said Johnston. "Harrison Design’s Modern Studio Director, Robert Tretsch III, has created an architectural masterpiece, inspired by a 1945 Atlanta Youth Symphony performance. The architectural design of this showhouse is a celebration of music starting with a design that is inspired by the slow and quiet opening pizzicato bass passage at the front entrance leading into a fortissimo blast that dramatically opens to a multi-story space with huge expanses of curtain wall on the backside visually connecting the interiors to the mature forest on both sides of the 1.19-acre property. This Modern Buckhead Masterpiece is the definition of the word BEAUTIFUL! There’s truly no comparison to the architectural precision and design of this gorgeous residence."

About the home

Robert's intention was to design a residence that is understated from the front elevation and then opens to a magnificent three-story curtain wall of glass that maximizes the views of the property and the park. Perfectly sited is a 65-foot-long pool that captures the sunlight during the day and reflects off the ceiling in the residence, like a sundial. Open rooms with views of the property surround the kitchen designed by Design Galleria.  The kitchen features a massive island by Temmer marble, the latest in Wolf and Sub Zero appliances with both gas and induction cooking and a hidden walk-in pantry. The dining room appears to float over the central open space and over the living room below. The living room captures views from the property and the shimmering pool. The space features a full bar, game room, and two wood-burning fireplaces. Dramatic staircases wrap up to the bedroom levels complete with an additional laundry.  Energy-efficient and extremely quiet with whole-house automation and sited on 1.1 acres in the best part of the west side of Buckhead in area code 30327.
