This 1970s home puts you in a mood. Perhaps it’s the strong lines, or the impressive scale that transports you to a slinkier era. Or maybe it’s all that wood, stone, and glass that remind you of the majestic Mount Olympus just outside.

In any case, the 6,200-square-foot rambler was designed by Utah’s midcentury modern architect Eduard Dreier to make an impression. A sweeping roof with dramatic overhangs, glulam beams, wood paneling, walls of stacked stone, soaring ceilings, and a split-level floorplan make this a dynamic space for entertaining and serene living alike.

Although comprising only two bedrooms (but four bathrooms), the impeccably maintained residence 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 a built-in storage unit.

This flows into a family room, also anchored by a fireplace, and a St. Charles kitchen, which features expanses of glass that frame stunning mountain views. The two bedrooms each occupies a corner of the house and include fabric walls, high ceilings, and hardwood floors. The bathrooms, all untouched, with marble countertops, tiled floors, and dark wood cabinets, are nonetheless appealing in their own retro way.

Downstairs, a huge, finished basement features the same wood closets and stone fireplace as the main level, a vault, and endless potential. Located at 4374 South Zarahemla Drive, it’s offered at $1.4 million.
