The epitome of modern design, Cantilever House was conceptualized and designed by visionary AIA award-winning architect, Sheila Lee Davies, and built in collaboration with Darby Construction. After a 3-year evolution the home is ready to take its place as one of most architecturally significant modern homes ever built in Atlanta. Nestled in the heart of Morningside, passersby are not privy to the eponymous cantilever design in the rear, as the front façade is consciously restrained to maximize privacy. A curated palette of exterior materials blends seamlessly as polished stucco, ipe slatted wood, and cementitious panels expertly marry together. Guests are graciously greeted by serene exteriors by Brendan Butler Landscape + Design. With an architectural concrete path winding its way to the front entrance, it’s easy to miss a 2-car garage masterfully concealed behind a wall of ipe wood slats, an elegant stroke of master craftsmanship. A stunning 10’ tall pivot door welcomes you inside revealing a floating stairwell connecting 3 distinct levels of living space. For the ultimate convenience, a private elevator affords easy access to the 6,547 sq ft of space. The double-height Living Room draws you in with soaring glass and is punctuated by a dramatic 6’ linear gas fireplace and custom built-ins. Microcement floors seamlessly tie together the living spaces. Imported from Europe, Reynaers window and door systems offer the highest level of energy efficiency, and in spectacular fashion allow entire walls of glass to effortlessly slide open. The Display Kitchen is a study in luxury as custom cabinetry conceals a state-of-the-art appliance package. Thermador smart refrigeration systems are complemented by a full height wine tower while Miele cooking systems cater to the most avid chef. The 20’+ long center island spans the length of the kitchen that is paired with classic black and white quartz counters. A sleek yet functional Scullery offers an additional sink, dishwasher and a plethora of floor-to-ceiling cabinets and is connected on one end to the Mudroom and Dining Space on the other. Massive walls of cornered glass open completely to the exterior for indoor or al fresco dining options while an artistic Moooi light fixture enriches the Dining Space. In a visionary statement, a 20-foot span of the upper-level cantilevers effortlessly over the lanai and yard below in an engineering marvel. With a raised infinity-edged spa surrounded by a sun shelf, the heated saltwater pool complements the cantilever. Back inside, the main level is completed by a full en-suite bedroom and a powder room. Upstairs the Primary Suite serves as the ultimate respite with a jaw-dropping bathroom. Massive skylights illuminate walls swathed in moody Porcelanosa slabs. An integrated shower niche elegantly morphs into a shower bench while a soaking tub is center stage providing an inviting alternative to the standing shower. A floating double vanity with LED Robern® mirrors and water closet complete the space. Anchored by a massive 25’ long bed-wall the bedroom features walls of glass taking in the treetop views of neighboring Wildwood Park. A sitting area with a covered balcony is perfect for a morning coffee during sunrise. The Dressing Room features floor-to-ceiling ebonized teak wardrobe closets and a huge center island. 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, laundry room, loft and storage area complete the upper level while the lower level features a theater, gym, additional bedroom and full bath offer maximum flexibility. Bespoke finishes abound with too many details to list, from tankless water heaters to pre-wiring for electronic window treatments. Cantilever House is situated in the heart of Morningside close to Piedmont Park, the new Beltline entrance and all that makes Morningside one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Atlanta. Convenient highway access and one of the top-rated school districts in the city are hallmarks of Morningside.
