The home was originally built in 1948-49 and at some point in the past the living room was pushed out towards the valley about 10'. The current owners purchased the house in '98 and are the 4th owners. They remodeled the living room area and as a result deferred maintenance by previous owners. The original architect is unknown, but came from Salt Lake City for the specific purpose of designing this specific house for the Henry family. Dwayne Carver is most responsible for its current look. The home was built on a ridge; enter upstairs in front, full daylight elk-out downstairs. The owner believes the house is the 1st house in the valley to have a flat roof, radiant hot water heat in the ceilings, low voltage lighting, floor-to-ceiling windows, and extensive use of birch veneer AC plywood for paneling, closets, and cabinets. The exterior is (several flavors) of brick, painted clapboard, some rock, clear-stained wood, and concrete foundation in the back. Interior is stainless steel, counter tops, particle board and Oakley stone flooring, birch veneer plywood paneling the cabinetry, wall to wall carpet, and drywall.
