This sprawling home in the central Salt Lake area is luxurious and large, but also fun in its ultra-contemporary stylings from its construction in 1937 and a rebuild in 1996. It has more than 3,700 square feet on the inside, and the property of more than 5,200 square feet is lush with foliage and expert landscaping. Inside the home, the common areas benefit from open design and oversized rooms. Earth tone accents and ambient lighting from the vast windows create an organic, vibrant living atmosphere. The kitchen has both cabinets and built-in shelving, a long breakfast bar for four, and is outfitted with top-end stainless steel appliances. There is an outdoor terrace which is an extension of the living room. The master bath includes a jetted tub in its own ornate tile enclosure. There is also a one bedroom apartment on the first floor with its own separate entry. Built for and by an architect, this home is simply a local gem.
