On the slopes of Deer Valley Resort, design breaks free from heavy and dark to give mountain living—and a new Stein Eriksen Residence—a light filled, modern style.
Expansive windows frame views of Deer Valley slopes as seen from a cozy sitting area in the home’s living room.
Sub Zero and Wolf appliances equip the small, open kitchen furnished with custom cabinets of rift-sawn white oak. A 10-foot island, topped with Calacatta Gold marble, is ideally sized for serving and entertaining large groups.

A floating steel staircase connects the home’s four levels, while flooding them with light and mountain views.
The inviting living room features a clean-lined, horizontally oriented fireplace formed with a dynamic marble mantle, hearth and surround. “Dancing in the Wasatch” from McMillen Fine Art Photography hangs above the fire feature. Multiple seating areas contribute to the room’s comfort and functionality.
Modern Luxury defines the master bathroom, where a Waterworks freestanding tub serves as sculpture in front of floor-to-ceiling windows. The bottom panels are frosted glass to provide privacy for bathers. Cabinetry built by Magleby Construction is topped with Calacatta Gold marble.
Featuring a waterfall edge, a low-profile fireplace warms this bedroom without blocking mountain views.
Strategically located off the home’s ski lounge, the hot tub offers views without sacrificing a sense of privacy.
An oak barn door adds an unexpected industrial element to the junior master suite.
“It’s like a jewel box in the middle of the room,” says Buchan of the master bathroom’s glass-walled shower. Rift-sawn white oak—like that used vertically in the kitchen—runs horizontally on the vanity and insert dresser. The pair of Larsen rectangular vessel sinks are from Waterworks.
To make the contemporary home fit its mountain setting, the design team used stone and recycled barn wood from Montana to balance the exterior’s clean, modern lines.
