There are plenty of reasons we’re fascinated by modern mountain homes, and this Iron Mountain residence in Park City captures them all: breathtaking views, stunning architecture, connection to the land and, of course, stylish livable spaces—indoors and out. In our feature story Mountain Climber, architect Scott Jaffa teamed with imaginative clients to create a home of stacked forms that delivers must-see design. Fortunately, we have more images of the project beyond those showcased in our feature story, and we’ve compiled many of them here. Ready to take a mountain tour?

Inspired by the mountain setting and panoramic views, architect Scott Jaffa designed the home to fit the steep topography. “Rather than cutting into the ground, we offset three rectangles so the design respected the site,” he says.
Defined by stacked forms that climb the hillside, the home is surrounded by marvelous sites. “The house faces incredible views up canyon, to Iron Mountain and down valley to the Uintas,” Jaffa says.
Guests enter into a light-filled foyer, where an open-tread staircase wraps around a stone fireplace that extends to the main level and great room above. Mezzo Fireplace by Hearth & Home in SLC
The living room is part of the main-level great room. A naturally shed antler chandelier hangs below a ceiling inset with LED lights and reclaimed barnwood. Sofa and chairs are from RH.
The great room’s bar area boasts a leathered-granite countertop and nano windows that fold open to the deck.
In the open kitchen, a cut-in banquette paired with a custom steel-and-granite table offers a stylish, casual place to dine in the great room area. Cabinets crafted by Carriage House Mill in Orem.
Laminated glass panels create an azure glow as they enclose the conference room and gym. Glass is from Tanner Glass & Hardware in Park City.
A custom table made by Project Sunday anchors the dining area. A wine wall serves as a striking room divider.
Jaffa designed the primary bedroom’s bed and headboard, custom built by David Stine. Phillip Jeffries grasscloth wallpaper delivers color and texture to the wall.
A spacious shower, partially encased in glass, anchors the primary suite’s luxurious bathroom. A book-matched onyx slab from Venetian Tile and Stone Gallery performs like art on the back wall.
Expansive 12-foot sliding doors connect the primary bedroom to a view-laden patio furnished with a custom hot tub and relaxed lounge area.
Surrounded by majestic mountain views, a sitting area is anchored by raised fire feature on a patio located off the main living areas.
