Location: Salt Lake City, Utah
Here’s an impressive 1976-built home in Salt Lake City that practically towers above the city. Featuring walls of windows and stone, spacious split-levels, and a flowing floor plan, the three-bedroom-two-bath clocks in at just over 4,000-square feet with what appears to be original details still in place.
Designed by architect Eduard Dreier, known as one of Utah’s great midcentury modern architects, the residence is a beautiful time capsule of sorts. A massive steel-framed roof cantilevers over the house, while wood paneling, glazing, and stonework clad the facade. Inside, living areas appear to bleed into one another, thanks to a double-faced open fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows.
A floating staircase wends its way up the house, connecting the floors while maintaining an openness that keeps the home airy. Gorgeous built-in shelving, closets, and other storage up the vintage feel, but the kitchen appears to be slightly updated, with a few period elements still in tact. The bathrooms also appear to have been renovated.
The only serious overhaul to be made would be to remove the carpeting and install hardwood floors instead. Otherwise, the property at 1171 East Chandler Drive is a treasure available for $1,250,000.
