Single-Family Home, Ranch - Salt Lake City, UT
Built in 1957 by architect Stephen L. McDonald as his personal home, this beautiful mid-century is a private, peaceful, Japanese-inspired masterpiece. Overlooking Millcreek itself, just down from Wasatch National Forest and surrounded on three sides by water and nature, it feels like a tree house. The spacious large rooms with ceiling-to-floor windows are full of natural light that extend outside into whatever season is at hand. The kitchen boasts amazing finishes. The formal dining area has a glass wall that pulls you outside. The sliding doors lead to a deck, so indoor dining can move outdoors. The master bedroom features wide pine floors, an ensuite bath, a walk-in closet, a cedar closet and walkout deck. Nestled within a private .75-acre lot and located at the mouth of Millcreek Canyon at the site of an old Mill andacirc;andeuro;" there is a 30-foot waterfall just off the kitchen. This is the most stunning, unique and magnificent lot in the Salt Lake Valley. The raceway to the falls flows along two sides of the residence; Millcreek itself flows along the North side. With several patios and decks it is a serene setting for outside dining. Additional private seating areas allow for personal reflection, gravel paths leading to secluded areas. Two remodels. The architectural legacy of this residence, the location, the waterfall, nature and the striking space make this the most unique home in the Salt Lake Valley.
