The home was designed by renowned Atlanta architect Stephen Fuller. This unique floor plan is optimal for raising a family and for entertaining. The two-story home is located on North Stratford Road in the prestigious North Buckhead community.

The terrace level opens to a covered patio with a fireplace, storage area and optional outdoor shower and bath.

From the terrace level, a short elevator ride to the first floor leads to the state of the art gourmet kitchen, including granite countertops, stainless steel Wolf appliances, custom-designed solid wood cabinetry with soft close doors and drawers, an over-sized center island which includes a sink, serving area and breakfast bar, and a butler's pantry with granite countertop, ice maker and wine cooler.
