Designed by architect Eduard Dreier, comprised of massive amounts of wood, stone, and glass and with views of Utah’s majestic Mount Olympus just out the window, this house puts you in that 70s vibe instantly. According to the real estate agent for the 6,200 square foot property,
“It’s the late seventies now, and disco and glam are it. This is a time to entertain. It’s a time to bring people together. It’s a time for family and guests to gather in voluminous spaces. This is pre-Gehry and pre-Hadid. This is the dawn of a time when architecture became sculpture, and the starchitect was born. Ed Dreier saw, and became, the beginning of it all.
It consist of sweeping rooflines, massive glulam beams that stretch like bows from one end of the house to the other, and large fireplaces you can lean or sit on (with a cocktail in hand of course). All the details we love about Ed’s work are still here: the accordion dividers, mitered glass corners, beautiful tiles, stacked stone walls running from indoor to outdoor, and large spans of floor-to-ceiling windows.
Some –like this one– are even lucky enough to have a St. Charles kitchen. Staring up toward Mount Olympus from the dining room, in complete awe of the view, you’re reminded that you had the same feeling walking up the path to your front door. This is a stunning home, that’s been as cherished and revered as the memories made in it.“
It only has two bedrooms (but four bathrooms) but it was impeccably maintained and features a flexible layout that includes a great room distinguished by a handsome stone-wood-and-metal fireplace, on the other side of which, a couple of shallow steps us, is a formal dining area with built-in storage.
This flows into a family room, also anchored by a huge stone fireplace, and a kitchen, which features expanses of glass that frame stunning mountain views. The bathrooms are all untouched, with marble countertops, tiled floors, and dark wood cabinets. (Those we wouldn’t DARE touch.)
Downstairs, an enormous, finished basement features the same wood closets and stone fireplace as the main level. Just add a lighted dance floor and vintage soundtrack.
It can be yours for a cool $1.4 million, provided you want to live, at least part time, in Salt Lake City.
