"You might say this home is a time capsule of sorts. You might also say this home is a physical reminder of who we are and where we came from. Joseph H. Young was the great grandson of Brigham Young. He designed this home, just as he did a multitude of church houses, private residences, commercial buildings, and even a Native American casino. Joe started his career working alongside two other gentleman for the LDS church, back when the cost of construction was $15 per square foot. He went on to start his own practice, designing such spaces as the Bob Rice Spa Fitness Center Main Office (4535 S 2300 E in Holladay) and a host of private residences. This home started out as an architectural wooden model showpiece that Joe traveled around with. Seeing that it sited so perfectly atop this lot, taking advantage of every view, he couldn't help but build it here. This was the place, so to speak. From the front, the home is a vision of symmetry and balance, right down to the matching garages on each wing. A domed skylight crowns the home, adding an ethereal touch to all the angles and geometry. Once inside, it feels as if the entire home was built to draw your attention to the skies the views follow you everywhere. Two wraparound decks stretch like horizons across the backside. The interior is untouched, a perfectly preserved palette waiting to be primped and prepped for a new era of life. Thanks to Joe, you'll have the perfect perch upon which to design your new nest. "
