The Austintonian is a 9,000 square ft. estate located on 3.5 acres inside Atlanta Georgia's metropolitan perimeter.
The architectural and creative influence is the brain-child of a spiritual journey between music producer Dallas Austin and music icon Lenny Kravitz on a trip to Eleuthera, Bahamas where Austin said to Kravitz,"Man I wanna build my dream home. I want it to look like the future from along time ago kinda like Frank Lloyd Wright did for L.A. and John Laughtner did for Bob Hope in Palm Springs."
Kravitz said to Austin, "You have to see my house in Miami, I think I have the perfect guy for you his name is Micheal Czysz and he's just finishing a house for me, you have to come see it".
Austin went to Miami and not only was he blown away by the combination of modern and post-modernism, Kravitz's house was like nothing Austin had ever seen before; sliding glass doors, shag carpets such as if Barbarella and Minority Report could mix together in such a special place.
Austin and Kravitz became family. To christen the garage, Lenny gave Dallas a 1969 Road Runner car for his 30th birthday that sits in the garage today. The interior features renowned art by Andy Warhol, Todd Murphy, Shepard Ferry, Victor Mathews, Jona Sewinsky and George Clinton. An extensive collection of James Brown artifacts also graces the gallery walls alongside live bamboo and natural sunlight.
It has also been the comfort place of house guests like Justin Bieber, Sean Combs, Tyreese Gibson, Orlando Jones and Mechad Brooks to name a few.
The Austintonian is available for TV, film, video productions. All-inclusive special events include concierge services, catering, valet, music curation, security, transportation and home assistant to accommodate up to 175 guests.
