    I’m not into moderne, but tthe interior of this house is quite interesting & appealing. And just flooded with natural light! Love the curved glass block windows.

    I’m sure that the original kitchen was amazing.

    I would so love to properly restore a house like this.

    Basically, everything done to this house since it was built has eroded its distinctive Moderne styling.

    The new kitchen, for example, has nothing in common with the house it occupies.

    What a glory this house could be!

      I agree with you Ross. Moderne is not my thing either, but that being said if you have a Moderne house go with it, don’t fight it. Except for the shape of the rooms and the doorways, it looks like any other house inside. No fabulous art deco touches. You should buy it and do it right! This house could be fabulous!

      I agree Ross. There has been some not so good things done here. I love this style of architecture, but this interior doesn’t really ‘match’. And, in the first interior shot it appears (to me) that there’s something odd about the shape of the archway to the hall. It looks reworked and no longer a smooth arch. The exterior is phenomenal and I agree this would be a fun one to take on.

      I agree with each of you. In the right hands, this home will be delightfully delicious!

      Agreed! I would have so much fun restoring this kind of house. The kitchen and bathrooms, especially.

    I am mad for this house. Kelly, you made my day — thank you!

    I initially didn’t open this description because I like “traditional” old homes, but this is lovely! Isn’t the silver banister art deco? The shape of the different rooms is awesome, too.Thanks for sharing this one, Kelly.

    I love Art Deco style and this house is a fabulous example of it. The staircase is just gorgeous and that black and chrome bathroom really beautiful. I agree with the others that the kitchen is beautiful, but doesn’t fit the style. I would love to own this home and decorating it would be so much fun!

    Oh the curved walls. They give such a lovely flow to a home. This house is wonderful.

    The doors and the windows can stay.

    What a wild house! I think I love it. I think… 🙂

  13. Bethster says: 871 comments

    I love all of the curves and arches, too. Aside from the kitchen and that weirdly pointy arch, I don’t see anything that I’d have to get rid of right away. Oh, well, I mean, there’s that bathroom mirror, and I’m not sure about that fireplace (I can’t see it well enough)….And of course I’d get rid of some of the ceiling fixtures and do a lot of repainting (especially the room with the “clouds”). And yes, okay, I would love to redo the bathroom in a late 30s Deco style! But simply for the basic architecture—curved walls, arched doors and doorways, the glass block, the stairs—I would buy it today if it were located someplace I want to live.

    Wow,unexpected style of house to find in UT or even the USA. Watch some Hercule Poirot episodes before furnishing!

    • dkzody says: 252 comments

      Lori, I thought the exact same thing. I love this style when done correctly.

    • Sue S. says: 274 comments

      I love you, Lori. I always think of the Hercule Poirot episodes when I see a Moderne too. The production company took such pains with that show to get the 1920s/1930s touches just right.

      I wouldn’t want to live in a Moderne — I like my earth-toned Craftsman — but love looking at them. I always want to fill them with chrome and a black/white/pink color scheme. Maybe some Nile green. 😉

    Although my favorite old house style is Victorian with lots of gingerbread and porches, I love this one! It fits beautifully into the Utah landscape and I like the curved walls and arches inside and the clean simplicity. I too agree that the interior decor is unsuited to the style of the house. Seems like the owners were trying for a southwestern “hogan” atmosphere. I’m not sure what an appropriate kitchen for this house would look like?

  16. Gemma says: 112 comments

    This is so Poirot. Can almost visualize the little Belgian gumshoe talking to his associate on that staircase.

  17. Sue S. says: 274 comments

    Sorry to digress, but for those who have mentioned Poirot, here are a lot of good shots from the series that show his apartment. http://poirotchronology.blogspot.fi/p/apartment.html?m=1 A Moderne kitchen would be more spare and simple, more white/metal, more “sanitary” looking. I’m not saying this house’s kitchen isn’t sanitary, by any means. But in the early part of the 20th century there was a mania for white in bathrooms & kitchens, presumably so you could see and attack all the dirt and germs!
