This secluded mountain contemporary is in the gated and guarded North Cove community and offers stunning mountain and valley views. This residence was redesigned by the well-known Utah architect, Max Smith. His design concepts maximize the views with walls of windows, creates open and airy living spaces that are filled with soft natural light, and melds the indoor and outdoor venues. The dramatic open, two-story entry provides a warm and welcoming introduction to the home. As you pass through the wide set, main corridor to the great room you are astonished by the beauty of the Wasatch mountains and the size and scale of the floor-to-ceiling gas-lit travertine fireplace. The great room expands into other areas of the home such as the gourmet kitchen which is decorated with cherry wood cabinetry, granite countertops and professional grade appliances, the dining area, the honeysuckle scented patio and the remote controlled screened patio’s dining and lounging area. There is a large main level suite that opens to a private garden patio enabling you to listen to the soothing sound of the water feature. Upstairs, from the master bedroom you can also hear the melodic sound of the water feature and relax in splendor in the luxurious master bath with a jetted tub and steam shower. There are also two large and cheerful bedrooms and an executive office on this level that offer breathtaking views. From the minstrel’s balcony on the second level you can enjoy the activity from below or decorate your holiday tree. The lower level includes a large recreation room with a built-in cherry wood media wall cabinet and bookcase, a guest bedroom, laundry room and plenty of storage areas. Set on an impressive, 1.37-acre lot that is surrounded by mature trees, has colorful year-round gardens, two water features, stone patios and walkways, expansive flat, grassy lawn area and a vegetable garden. This premier home is tucked away in a secured community above the capitol yet convenient to downtown, the airport and the University of Utah.
