We can’t seem to quench our thirst for midcentury modern homes around here, but who can blame us when exhilarating originals like this gem by modern master William Pereira keep cropping up? Built in 1969 in collaboration with the original, current owner, this 4,650-square-foot two-bedroom in Holladay, Salt Lake City, Utah has come on the market for the first time ever with all of its glorious details in tact.

Situated on 1.65 acres of land at the foot of Mount Olympus, this single-level, flat-roofed rambler features the characteristic volumes and clean, long lines of the period, with a wall of windows framing the backyard and acting as a backdrop for the step-down living room and study and extending to the master suite. At the center of it all is a massive stone hearth that figures in all three rooms, with the double-faced fireplace warming both the living room and master bedroom.

The historical residence also combines brick, stone, glass, and concrete in its construction, with parquet and carpet-laid floors and natural cork paper-paneled walls. Have a look around. Will you be the one to preserve this stunning home and take it into its next life? It’s asking $1,685,000 after a $200,000 price cut.
