In Salt Lake City, it’s Michigan Avenue. In Holladay, there’s Walker Lane. In Sandy, it’s gotta be Altavilla Drive. It’s one of those streets that you can drive through and feel like every home could be your dream home. It’s not the cookie cutter luxury tract home subdivision. Every home has history and character. Some are beyond dreams and others are still within your reach. There’s something about being minutes from the city but feeling as if you’re worlds away. That’s the feeling you get when you live in the last row of homes before meeting up with the open space of BLM land.
“These large estate lots rarely come on the market, and when they do, you better be ready to snatch them up, because the demand is that great,” states Joan Pok, luxury marketing specialist with RealtyONEGroup Signature. Sure, there are lots of homes on large parcels in the state, but few have the amenities and setting that is found at 10344 S. Altavilla Drive. Situated on a full acre of prime property, this magnificent 2-story home features a circular driveway, an oversized 3-car side entry garage, and an amazing park-like yard which features an oversized patio, waterfall, in-ground trampoline and tennis court. “It’s the kind of yard you picture yourself hosting the dream wedding for your sweet baby girl or because of the size and design, the ideal place to hold that once in a decade family gathering,” adds RP co-marketing agent. Lush, yet well-manicured trees grace the entire property while the security fence adds to the sense of privacy, intimacy and safety which is critical in an estate such as this.
Recently remodeled, the inside is light, bright and luxurious with styling cues taken straight out of a high end luxury publication. Step through the 9-foot double entry doors and you’re standing in a foyer with 16-foot ceilings with a beautiful family room to your right and a charming office on the left. With nearly 7,800 square feet, this home features seven bedrooms and six baths along with a formal living room, formal dining room, two family rooms and one of the largest, most well-designed kitchens you’ll ever see, complete with a double island set up and commercial range and hood cooking system. The 2-story family room will take your breath away with its dramatic 2-story stone fireplace, arched walkways and a Juliet balcony. A secondary entrance on the main floor is ideal for a maid or live-in nanny quarter, and is made complete with its own laundry hookups.
Upstairs is carefully configured for the perfect blend of form and function. A guest suite features a beautiful, all white contemporary bath. The master suite is spacious and features a large balcony overlooking the one-acre grounds, a fireplace and sitting area, a walk-in closet that would be the envy of any, and a charming master bath complete with a large jetted tub, beautiful stone lined shower and every woman’s dream, his and her water closet. That’s right, never ever have to deal with the toilet seat problem again. A second back staircase leads to the upstairs which is perfect for games, hobbies and crafts, and could easily be converted back into a bedroom.
A separate entrance from the garage leads to one of the most unique features of the home, the cabin retreat. The family has always enjoyed their cabin getaways from their childhood days, so they created a beautiful and tasteful cabin style retreat where they can enjoy their holiday celebrations with the entire family. “You really get a sense and feeling of a Park City mountain home when you are down there,” declares Joan.
A special open house is planned for this Saturday from 11am-3pm. Come see for yourself the uniqueness of this enchanting Altavilla estate.
