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, it’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.  It’s also outfitted with in-floor radiant heating and will keep a family cozy when the greatest snow on Earth falls.
