FOR SALE: Brentwood DR SLC Mid Century Modern MASTERPIECE

This home is STUNNING!!  A true rare find in SLC.  I can’t take my eyes off these photos.  You have to see.

This incredible masterpiece boasts a sprawling 8170 Sq Ft, (6200 on the main floor alone) 3 Fireplaces, and an astounding 1.94 Acres.  Built in 1957 by acclaimed Architect Georgious Cannon, it is a prime space for entertaining ones guests and self.

These windows are amazing.

I am aching to get a tour of this bad boy…  the design possibilities are endless!!  I’d get a nice iridescent concrete floors like these,

creamy white walls, a pale yellow 8 ft x 6 ft original abstract painting.  And this kitchen table.

Isn’t it gorgeous?  I am sure I could have plenty of creative thinking moments sitting at this table.  In fact, maybe I’d have to get a desk just like it.  :)

I’d pair it with these Danish Modern chairs.

In Love.

What would you do?


Here is my new project!

I have recently decided to refurbish and resell furniture in my {very rare} spare time!  Here is my first project.  A pair of orange chairs I found on Craig’s List.  Not quite Mid Century Modern, but hey they are still cool.  I am excited about them, and I will keep you updated with the progress.  Check back soon!

Just Ordered.

I found the most awesome book today.  Needless to say, it is on it’s way!  I am super excited to get it and look thru it over and over.   Who wouldn’t want to sit in that chair and read a book?  Bliss.

In the book Author Deborah K Dietsch beautifully illustrates the revolutionary design by such amazing architects as Albert Frey, Mies, Neutra, and more.   She has filled the book with photographs of some of the United States’ most famous mid-century houses, and has also included amazing furniture and art classics.

One featured home in particular, is the Stahl House, designed by architect Pierre Koenig.  Such an inspiring piece of art, and photographer Julius Shulman saw the incredible beauty in a completely original way.   Thank you to both men (Leonardo’s of their time-if you ask me) for starting the MCM revolution, and creating something I am so passionate about!

Deborah also includes original furniture pieces such as Eames’ molded plywood lounge chair. (above)

Amazing!!!

I am incredibly excited to read it!

FOR SALE: SLC Mid-Century Modern Gem

I was surfing the MLS today like I frequently do, and I found this amazing MCM house.  Like any MCM-ist who lives in SLC knows, these homes are rare, and they are almost never found in such original condition.  This home is screaming out for a new owner to lovingly restore it to it’s original glory.

Built in 1965 by Architect Ed Dreier, this gorgeous house boasts 4050 SF, 4 bed 3 baths, and a .46 acre lot and is located at 3182 E Millcreek Canyon Rd.

Asking price is $880,000 (which quite unfortunately is out of my price range, but maybe not to some of you readers)

The listing agent is Mike Lindsay.  Who, I must add, is the agent-of-all-agents in the SL Valley.  I have noticed over the years his listings have included some of the best SLC has to offer.

Listing # 1030098

There is an open house for this property on Saturday, May 14, from 3-5.

Here, you can see the architectural tile ceiling, and the huge H beam roof construction.

Here is the gorgeous entryway with the original door.  WOW!!

The kitchen has been re-done, but I (being an open-concept type of girl) would open the kitchen up to the rest of the house.  with the H beam construction that could be quite easy.

I love that the fireplace is separating two spaces, and is visually in the middle of the house.  This is one of the features I loved about my own MCM home.

The gorgeous Mahogany built-ins remind me of my grandparents house.  They were true Modern-ists and my grandfather even helped contribute to the inventory of Mid-Century Modern homes in Holladay and SLC.

This house is AMAZING!!  I would love to own such an iconic piece of the past.  Again, I’m in love with that fireplace.  I would probably try a different wood veneer or a glass tile like this:

Then make it pop with an almost-black hardwood or charcoal-stained concrete.

I love these windows!  The potential here is truly amazing.  I would definitely streamline the flooring throughout the house to keep it consistent.  I am not a fan of many different flooring materials in an open-style house.

I am truly jealous of whoever the new owners are going to be.   I am aching to get my hands on an incredible find like this!!

If you or anyone you know have a Mid-Century Modern home that you would like me to feature on this site, please contact me.  I am always looking for inspiration and new projects to follow.
