Love midcentury modern architecture? Check out this three-bedroom, three-bath home in Salt Lake City, Utah. The home was designed by Eduard Dreier, an architect with Bauhaus roots who attended school in Zurich before immigrating to the United States and becoming one of Utah’s great midcentury architects.

Dreier built many steel and glass residences for Salt Lake’s high-end communities, refining his skill to include large windows, flat rooflines, a mix of structural materials, and a relentless attention to detail. In this 3,693-square-foot home in the Federal Heights neighborhood, Dreier designed an exterior with sculpted roofline, a unique stone and wood facade, and mature Zen gardens.

Inside, an open floor plan balances walls of glass with warm mahogany built-ins throughout. Thoughtful indoor-outdoor living is paramount; multiple side patios and the front porch integrate the living spaces to the outdoors. Other perks include a two-car garage, laundry room, and a private office that enjoys midday sun. 1336 East Arlington Drive is on the market now for $875,000.
