If less is more, then this home is everything.
What you see here is what you get—a single-level living space that meets every need without having to direct its inhabitants up or down a single flight of stairs. The home reveals itself to dwellers and guests with honest materials, thoughtful design, and sensitivity to the natural elements.
Four modest bedrooms line the living quarters of the home (one of which has functioned as a nursery and den, as the lack of closet allows for flexible use), each with its own floor-to-ceiling windows to the exterior.
The owner’s suite boasts an attached sauna, and all bedrooms are afforded privacy from the back yard’s zen garden and mature trees by a series of Shoji screens. When open, you’ll find clean access to the large deck and pool.
The original kitchen is private, as is typical of this style of home, but a massive window over the sink offers views to the tree-lined drive and entrance of the property where a dual carport perfectly frames the entrance, flanked by the rock walls and interior warmth of the home.
An art studio on the back of the property offers both creativity and flexibility: the well-appointed space could serve as a temporary classroom (for quarantined home schooling), a yoga/meditation studio, or quarters for a live-in au pair.
Complete with views to the pool and back yard, thanks to massive windows that flank both sides of the home. With the slider open and the stars out, you’ll be glamping from home.Click here to read our Place of Worship story on this stunning home.
The structure’s placement on this land is as much for aesthetic revelation as it is for solar awareness. Throughout winter months, the sun reaches into each wing for natural warmth, while the summer months see them shaded by the eaves. Nothing is exaggerated here: even the pool sits as a quiet punctuation mark to the surrounding nature, a soft addition to the angles and lines of the home.
Spaces like this don't often come around...
The current owners (children of the original owner) are working with Preservation Utah to ensure that any future stewards of this house will also be committed to its architectural preservation. They ask that only those committed to maintaining the home's integrity apply for the next homeowner position.
