1999 E MICHIGAN AVE, Salt Lake City UT 84108
With all the sleek convenience of new construction, this stately spot-situated in one of SLC's most covetable neighborhoods-is one well-appointed place to perch. With soaring ceilings, thoughtful trim details, and beautiful flooring choices, the impeccably designed kitchen and bathrooms are rife with them, and the high-end details and lighting fixtures continue throughout this immaculate spot. But perhaps most pleasing of all? The current owners selected finishes not merely on aesthetics, but on the basis of their low VOC, green, or organic materials (like cork and stone flooring in the basement). The upstairs is flooded with light and boasts mountain views from nearly every window, but the main bedroom's view of the lovely back garden is holding its own just fine. There's a lot to boast about in this organic masterpiece. We'll start with the untreated, cedarwood boxes, fencing, and pergola, the certified organic soil, and natural soaker hoses in each box. But the blooms are bananas, too: antique roses, mint, apple and apricot trees, red, white, and black currants, raspberries, and concord and red flame seedless grapes. In short, this place is equal parts handsome and homey, and seems a sound spot to call home.
