Location: Salt Lake City, Utah
Another cool midcentury home by Eduard Dreier—one of Utah’s great modern architects—has come on the market in Salt Lake City. Built in 1956 and since updated, the 4,065-square-foot four-bedroom cuts an impressive silhouette, and not only because of its incredible circular carport (more on that later).
The flat-roofed structure is built into a sloping site and combines clean lines across two open-plan levels. An expansive stretch of floor-to-ceiling windows in the great room provides views across the city and floods the space with natural light. Here, a formal living, den, and dining area are found, anchored by an elegant in-wall fireplace. An eat-in kitchen with period details like laminate countertops, and vintage powder-pink oven and cabinetry sits adjacent.
Bedrooms are spacious and bright, while a couple of the bathrooms still retain those charming blue and pink tiling. A curved, steel staircase leads downstairs, where a recreational area with a fireplace and another bedroom complete the home.
But back to that carport. Supported by a central, Eero Saarinen-tulip-like base, the circular covering creates an organic counterpoint to the sharp angles of the rest of the home. A semicircular brick wall at the rear strengthens the contrast.
Impressive landscaping and a cantilevering deck round out the residence located at 2777 East Comanche Drive. It’s offered at $1.275 million.
