"THIS ESTATE IN THE MAKING is located on a hidden lane off Highland Drive (and borders the north side of I-215's westbound off-ramp). Envisioned by LMnT Architecture, this home's design marries a cathedral's beauty with a castle's strength. Indeed, you enter the home through a custom cathedral door (with leaded-glass sidelights) and step into a vaulted entry replete with Venetian-plaster walls and a four-partite ribbed-vault ceiling that is beautiful to behold. The office (with closet) has American walnut floors and a trinity of cased Pella windows. The entry bedroom has its own bath across the hall. The family room and kitchen form the home's central part. Leading up from the family room is a staircase with hand-carved royal-spade newel posts and gothic steel balusters. The family room's artisanal limestone fireplace was quarried from a Syrian lakebed. Look closely to see delicate shapes made permanent as stone. There isn't a cheap or inelegant surface in this home. The gourmet kitchen has shaved and honed granite counters, Thermador appliances, custom glazed cabinets that look hand-carved and that have copper hardware and Irish stained-glass inserts, and a huge walk-in pantry. Please see the attached features sheet for a more thorough description of the home. The yard is a work in progress: On the plus side is the stone-paver patio that you access from the home through an even larger cathedral door (with leaded-glass sidelights) that mirrors the entry. A hot tub on a concrete pad sits to the east of that patio; and a smaller stone-paver patio just beyond the main patio has a fire pit on it. The backyard waterfall is the best remedy for a stressful day. An unfinished section in the yard's NE corner would be perfect for a sports court or pool (or both). Yes, you can hear and see the freeway from the front yard (but not from inside the home), but you're also only 5 minutes from either the east- or westbound onramps. Moreover: ski resorts are only 20 min; Park City on"
