I discovered yet another wonderful Salt Lake secret neighborhood. This one is just south of Research Park, well above Foothill Boulevard. The streets are quiet, the homes are established, and many back up to Emigration Creek for the sounds and delight of a running stream and the wildlife it attracts. Starting with a perfect location, the team of AMB Design (Anne-Marie Barton) and Dubell Custom Homes (Steve Dubell) revived the interiors to preserve the classic elements, created an open and flowing floor plan that still offers definition to each area, and creates so many great hang-out places, making it difficult to choose.

The opening shot shows a dining table set in front of the fireplace. A dinner party here is certain to be remembered.

Just to the left of the fireplace dining area is an intimate family room.

And there is another formal dining room. This one enjoys a streetside bay window and has a door directly into the kitchen. The custom dining table subtly echoes Art Deco. The concept of two dining areas offer so many potential benefits: large family holidays or a big dinner party; a buffet table on one and dining on the other; or a game table and a dining table for an active evening.

The kitchen offers ample storage and workspace, plus some seating on the kitchen island.

The living room seating is clustered opposite the double-sided fireplace from the first dining area shown. Three sofas provide seating.

The master bath continues the soft subtle colors and variations in texture for which AMB is known.
