This contemporary, hilltop estate is one of the most dynamic and impressive properties in Utah. The modern gut-renovation of a Spanish-style estate takes advantage of amazing light and views, with floor to ceiling windows and retractable sliding glass door, enabling indoor-outdoor living and entertaining while capturing the breathtaking views of the city, valley & Wasatch Mountain Range. The towering ceilings, open floor-plan, clean lines and light interior take advantage of the volume of the space, while multiple gas fireplaces and quarter-sawn white oak flooring add warmth. The architectural integrity, quality and ingenuity are illustrated throughout many details -- the main staircase's robust steel and concrete construction, the ten impressive modular skylights that are recessed into the 10-foot coffered ceiling, the renovated indoor pool, and the elevator. The formal dining room makes a bold statement with its deep navy walls, triple crown molding and retro chandelier. The gourmet kitchen is sleek and modern with stunning to-the-ceiling marble back splash, high-end appliances and a custom brass vent hood. The beautiful built-in bar area and powder room -- styled after "Studio 54" -- further amplify this home's eye towards entertaining. The grand master suite includes two large walk-in closets, a gas fireplace and a refreshing spa-like master bath. The walk-out, lower level, has a heated indoor two-lane lap pool and a multi-purpose recreation room that adds to the fun. It is suited for exercising, movie watching, billiards, or game playing. This spellbinding estate includes an elevator, sound system, three complete suites, a four-car garage, and the adjacent view lot. Due to its proximity to open space on three sides, the house's ability to hold large events is accentuated by practically unlimited street parking. A stone's throw away from area hiking and biking trails, and close proximity to the University, Downtown and International Airport, you have to see it to believe it.
