Just outside of Salt Lake City in Emigration Canyon is this modern style home covered in a mixture of Swisspearl, CMU block, and bamboo. The home, located at 5860 Pioneer Ridge Circle, is planted on a 4.82-acre lot and designed by Brian Junge. It's also listed for sale right now for $1,150,000.
5860 Pioneer was constructed with insulated concrete forms and formaldehyde-free insulation. In terms of its energy performance, the home was Energy Star certified and received a HERS index rating of 69. In other words, itâ€™s about 30% more efficient than a basic code-built home.
The home has incredible views through double-pane, low-E windows and massive rooftop overhangs. Other green aspects include drought tolerant landscaping, rainwater collection, Toto dual-flush toilets, no-VOC paints, and a heat recovery ventilator.
5860 Pioneer has four bedrooms, three and a quarter bathrooms, two patios, two decks, a hot tub, and a fire pit. Itâ€™s also outfitted with in-floor radiant heating and will keep a family cozy when the greatest snow on Earth falls.
