North Timpview :: Black, White, and Hillside

I have loved this house for years.


The house is built into the hillside on a remarkably clean piece of land. I love the symmetry of the house; the balanced wings, the exact lower level. Notice the beams on the highest roof level and the integrated window mullions.

One of these days I'll invest in a better camera to capture the architectural details. The black and white (although it's really a deep brown) make the house look fresh and crisp.


I've actually been inside this house since a friend of mine grew up here, and her parents still own the property. The place is perfectly preserved late 60s to 70s modern with paneling and shag. Pristine!

I love you and your taste.

I know that house, too. We used to live up that way.

I lived a block away from this house for 25 years. I remember incredible church youth breakfasts in this home. The people are the sweetest you'll ever meet.

Christy, I totally know who you are! I think we were even in the Canyon Crest Ward together. I grew up with your cousins; Charalece and I are the same age.

And you're right! That house is just brimming with love.

That is so awesome!!!
Do you give your name out
anywhere on your blog? I am trying my best (with no luck) to find out who you are. I see Charalece and her family often. She's still so cute and sweet. Her parents are on another mission in Mexico. I'm friends with Nie's sister Page--that's how I came across your fab blog. Love it! Have you ever taken photos of the hexagon house in Indian Hills? That's a classic!

That house always scared me.
A.
LOT.
Of course, it could've been the very large boys which lived in that house, and the fact that the mom was my YW leader and also scared the bejeesus out of me. She did teach me to wrap a mean Christmas gift though.

How cute!! I never saw it but it's adorable!

I run by that house every morning, and I love it at Christmas-time the very best.

I have adored that house as I drive by! You can't beat a crisp contemporary.

Pristine shag? No such thing!

I think I know that house and I'm pretty sure that I have been in it. Wasn't the lady of the house the PTA queen and Edgemont? And isn't there fabulous built in shelves just inside the door? I am a big fan of MCM, I live in one up here in Bountiful.

I live down the street from this house and I have told the dear owners that ANY time they want us to take it off their hands, I'm all about it. I will have to arm wrestle the all of you for it, but I think I can take you.

I live right by there as well. I have wondered when I'll be able to get in there! I'm glad to find people here in Utah who appreciate older homes! As a realtor all I hear is new new new. The only reason people buy old is if it's cheap!! I'd love to see more restorations happening!

I have also loved this house for years! My grandma lived just down the block. It seems pretty clear that it will never be mine -- the second it (ever?) comes on the market, it will be gone!
