Architecturally Significant. 

Live like James Bond or Frank Sinatra in Skyhaven, a 1955 Mid-century Modern Masterpiece. The 4,550 sqft home, designed by Prix de Rome prize winning architect Joe Amisano, was built to entertain. Joe Amisano built Lenox Square Shopping Center [1954], the Lamar Dodd School of Art for the University of Georgia, the original Fernbank Science Center [1963], and the Peachtree Center MARTA station.

The John Knox Church [1964] was one of Amisano’s most celebrated Atlanta projects and won the 1967 AIA Award.

The travertine and bronze wall separates the foyer entry from the glass walled dining room.

Cantilevered Expanses. 

Commissioned by Charles Heyman, this solidly built home blends steel, concrete, and glass together with a strong connection to the professionally landscaped triple lot. The kitchen is a chef's dream. With granite countertops, custom white cabinets and professional Sub-Zero and Viking appliances. The banquet sized dining room has a 51 foot glass wall overlooking an outdoor patio.

The double height living room has a gas fireplace, travertine flooring, and an electrically operated curtain system.

Built to Entertain. 

A double height living room has a spiral staircase leading up to the signature glass-walled Skybar. Skybar still has the original bar and shelving.

Up a spiral staircase is the glass walled skybar has original cabinetry.

A Structural Rarity. 

In addition to kitchen renovations, the home has updated windows, HVAC, electrical, plumbing, and a commercial grade roof. A three car garage, three master suites, and two powder rooms complete this one of a kind package.

The custom kitchen features Sub-Zero and Viking appliances. Skylights, under cabinet lights, above cabinet lights, and can lights brighten the space.
