Property Description

After attending the USC School of Architecture, Wilford Knights came back to Utah and became the lead architect for the ZCMI building. (Wilford commissioned a shorter version of the famous multistoried ZCMI chandelier, which still hangs over the dining room of this home.) He wanted a dwelling that was not only modern in its design, but modern in the way in which energy was used to keep the home warm or cool. He found the envelope design to be the most efficient, taking advantage of the creek in the summer months, and a glass wall that harnesses the sun’s energy during the winter months. The warm or cool air circulates, enveloping the living spaces. Imagine, a house within a house, if you will. The home is self-sufficient, but the soothing warmth and smell of the wood burning fireplace may just entice you on those extra frosty days. Or, for those who prefer a little more precision in their temperature control, central heating and air is just a click away. The home sits on a beautifully landscaped half-acre plot abutting the creek, but it wasn’t always this well-manicured. As the story goes, Wilfred had to go back twice just to find the house, once shrouded behind a twelve-foot wall of overgrown shrubbery. Years of love and nurturing have transformed this property into the sanctuary it is today, providing a verdant oasis for the birds to nest and sing. A cedar facade nearly camouflages this home from the street, while the rear wall of glass opens it up to the creek and nature scene that awaits you in the privacy of the backyard. Carved wood trim adds a playful touch to otherwise minimal modern lines. And, oh the parties to be had in the grand solarium, with sliding pocket doors that allow for a seamless transition into the living room. Come enjoy nature’s ballet in the form of a winter storm and engulf yourself in the scenery, all from the comfort of the indoors. Come enjoy that sense of serenity that comes with living in pure harmony with your environment.
