2536 E. Table Rock Road, Boise 

This three-story residence was built in the art moderne style, which was popularized in the mid-1930s as a complement to the machine age. A flat roof, curved lines and a stripped-down, streamlined shape are a few elements of the style, all of which are evident in this 18-year-old structure.

A big, rounded wall of glass block on the two-story facade draws natural light into a three-story stairwell. A second curved, glass-block wall has a similar effect in the huge kitchen at the rear. The curved line is repeated on the bowed balcony on the back of the house and on the long, bull-nosed island in the gourmet kitchen.

The home's interior is a stunning showcase of fine materials and expert craftsmanship. An entire wall of small, white quartz blocks form a textured backdrop for the living room fireplace. Rich Brazilian walnut plank flooring provides visual warmth underfoot. A 10-foot-long slab of Carrera marble streaked with gray and white veins, tops the kitchen island and is also used as silky-cool countertop material in the handsome master bathroom.

The main floor contains the open living spaces, while the private quarters are arranged upstairs. The walkout basement features two bedrooms, a sizable cluster of storage rooms and a family room with a dumb waiter and kitchenette.

Pros: Elegant art moderne home on one acre.

Cons: Not enough space to write about the spectacularly serene Foothills view.
