House of the Day: Where Utah's Hills Meet Hollywood's

One look at this sprawling contemporary and you can't help but think Hollywood. Floor-to-ceiling windows, marble-tiled floors, wet/dry bars, a huge jetted tub, swimming pool and even meditation area -- so LA, right? Think again.

This 8,100-square-foot stunner is located in the charmingly small community of Arlington Hills in Salt Lake City, Utah. Although Utah is not particularly renowned for its cutting-edge modern homes, this $2.9 million property may be at the forefront of a new trend: bringing swanky, California-style contemporaries to the Beehive State (check out this similar $6.9 million glass-and-steel masterpiece designed by California architect Guy Dreier, and this 10,211-square-foot, $2.15 million contemporary, both in Salt Lake City).

Best of all, this five-bedroom, 3½ bathroom contemporary boasts sweeping views of Salt Lake City and the mountains, and is located very close to parks, walking trails and the University of Utah. Plus, it's just minutes away from New City Creek Center, where you can take in jazz shows, go shopping, or indulge in some art and fine dining.

California luxury without moving to Hollyweird? Sounds good to us.
