Exclusive MCM opportunity!

Exclusive Mid Century Modern opportunity – get it before it gets listed to the public!

The home, called Arrowhead, was designed by Robert Green, and build in 1962  in the Amberwood subdivision.  It is the crown jewel of MCM in Atlanta.    The main home is almost 4000 square feet, and there is a detached garage/game room overlooking an incredible pool, a separate pool house, with sauna, changing room, full bath and full kitchen, and a third dwelling that is a two story home with two additional bedrooms, living room and stubbed for bath.

The lot is huge – its 179 across the front by 200 deep.  It’s almost pie shaped, so the rear lot line is 252.     The interior ceilings are tidewater red aspen wood, and the floors are the original red terrazzo.

The current owners replaced the expensive systems – all new HVAC, new roof, updated electrical.  They also restored a lot of the interior back to the way it looked in 1962.  The kitchen has been updated – a HUGE Viking range, and new granite countertops.  That said, there is a fair amount of cosmetic work that will be needed on exterior woodwork and trim, and some updating will need to be done to the bathrooms as well.   We will list it at $1.3M.   I am reaching out to the Modern Community in Atlanta first, before listing it on the open market.

2012 Modern Atlanta Home Tour

The 2012 Modern Atlanta Home Tour has been announced!  This year’s tour will take place on June 9-10, 2012, and is the culmination of the preceding Modern Atlanta Week.  As a consistent participant in the modern home tour in Atlanta, we are proud to have two completed new modern homes on the tour this year:

The Justice – Kohlsdorf Residence:  Dencity (Architect) and Cablik Enterprises (Builder)











This new modern home is located in Sandy Springs overlooking a private lake.  The homeowners wanted a modern, yet warm home, with ample room for entertaining.  The modern home is totally custom, with all interior selections made by the homeowner, which allow both light and dark materials to contrast each other.  The exterior materials include Egyptian limestone, cypress panels, and aged steel panels.  The interiors feature a gracious entertaining area with numerous outdoor decks,  a guest suite overlooking vertical gardens, a wine cellar, and much more.

The construction process featured many sustainable features, and the home achieved Earthcraft and Energy Star certification in 2011.

The La France Residence: West Architecture Studios (Architect) and Cablik Enterprises (Builder)

The La France Residence is a custom-built modern home constructed as an infill project in Atlanta’s Edgewood neighborhood.  Despite the open floorplan and significant cantilevers, no structural steel was required, and the home’s unique exterior features 6 distinct materials.

This Atlanta modern home features a significant indoor-outdoor living component, with a large outdoor covered patio adjoined to the living room with a dramatic 11′ x 14′ sliding door.  The upstairs private areas feature two strategically-positioned rooftop decks, and a master bath with soaking tub and fireplace.

The home was built sustainably and achieved Earthcraft certification in 2012.





Complete information about the tour, as well as information on buying tickets, can be found at Modern Atlanta.

We hope to see you on the tour!!

Modern Home Pools

Modern home lovers – you are going to love this link, showcasing the best in modern and contemporary pools across the country.

As we are building several new modern homes in Atlanta that have similar pools and water features, we love to see how these gorgeous pools compliment modern homes.

I’m ready to take a dip!

Steel is set for the Argonne Residence!

There’s no time more exciting for a new modern home than when the steel starts to come out of the ground!  The Argonne Residence’s structural steel was erected in 5 working days in July.  The steel went up quickly which was helped by the concrete being all well within tolerance regarding elevation.


The steel at Argonne is actually 3 separate steel structures that will be connected by wood to form the house.  The house has two very large cantilevers, and one of them has floor-to-ceiling curtain wall glass.  The design is really starting to take shape and it is going to be an incredible house!
