A Glass-Encased Home in a Forest Near Salt Lake City Asks $2M

Nestled within a thicket of trees just minutes from the city, the renovated 1970s home has several solariums and monolithic covered patios.

A recently listed home near Salt Lake City offers the solitude of a forest retreat—complete with babbling streams and a backyard pond—along with the convenience of nearby ski resorts. Located in the suburb of Holladay, the 6,500-square-foot residence spreads out across a single level, with solarium-like living areas to enjoy the wooded surroundings. The concrete structure, originally built in 1974, was recently modernized with new finishes throughout.

Sited on a 1.04-acre lot along the prestigious Walker Lane in Holladay, Utah, the contemporary structure is surrounded by thick vegetation. In the middle of the ivy-covered forest is a small pond which feeds small streams throughout the property.

A recent renovation transformed the 1970s structure by introducing fresh finishes to nearly every room of the 6,589-square-foot home. The double-height living space features a wood-clad fireplace wall and clerestory windows in two corners.

The renovation included an all-new kitchen, complete with bright-white cabinetry and stainless steel countertops. Light-gray hardwood floors now run throughout the home, reflecting the natural light that pours from overhead skylights, clerestory windows, and sliding glass doors. Multiple living and dining areas offers space for entertaining and direct access to a large stone patio in the backyard.

Located just off the living area, the renovated kitchen features all-new cabinetry and appliances. Marble countertops on the central island contrast with stainless steel.

The glass-enclosed breakfast area looks out onto the backyard, with skylights along the ceiling and a pair of French doors providing access to the patio.

Further down the hall, a family room basks in natural light. The solarium-like space features numerous sliding glass doors that open up to the stone patio.
