With Fantastic Views Over the Mountains, this Wonderful House will Charm its Visitors
By Magaly • Dec 21, 2017
This house rests elevated on the crest of a mountain, and with wonderful views over the spectacular surroundings of Park City, which is located east of Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. It has a perfect panoramic view of the outdoor spaces and the green mountains of Utah, which will be covered in white with winter snow.
Perfectly equipped for all seasons, in the serene summer season, the house has a platform for breakfast, perfect for a day of rest and enjoying the sunset. But, due to its elevation of 7,500 feet, alongside the breathtaking views also comes extreme weather. At this height, the arrival of spring can bring hurricane winds; early autumn can produce shaky electrical storms; and winter can accumulate snow over 12 feet (3.7m). But this house is conveniently equipped to withstand the ravages of time.
It was designed by the architectural firm Imbue Design in 2016 and covers an area of 4,500 square feet.
The house possesses the warmth and natural quality of the light red cedar of the west in most of its exterior which gives it presence while uniting it naturally to the landscape. The natural color of the cedar creates a strong contrast against the snow in the winter months and offers a complementary color to the green hillside of spring. Cedar is naturally able to withstand the extreme changes in temperature and weather phenomena inherent in high elevation climates.
