Every room inside this breathtaking home will awe and inspire you. Built in the 1920’s for Utah’s “upper crust” Makoff department store family, this timeless estate carries the elegance and poise it was designed to showcase. Every detail of this home was perfectly handcrafted to the highest standards and has been carefully maintained over the years.
When you walk in the front door, you are welcomed by the two-story grand entry, with a decadent mahogany staircase. The entry radiates with natural light from a 20 ft south-facing window.
The kitchen is massive, and was renovated in 2016 blending seamlessly with the original architecture. There is a 20 ft island with plenty of prep space and a 6-burner gas range. The hood vents to the outside and illuminates the range with pristine clarity. There is a quaint dining nook, and adjacent cozy sitting area for relaxing in front of the TV or enjoying the fireplace. The vaulted ceilings and skylights accent the absolute vastness of the room. Top it off with an abundance of storage, wine fridge, ice maker, double fridge/freezer and butler’s pantry, and you’ve got the ideal space for entertaining or spending time with friends and family.
The dazzling formal dining room has an open and light ambiance that is perfect for entertaining guests. With windows opening the space to the beautiful outdoors, a glorious chandelier centerpiece, and a space that is large enough to host several families at once, holidays and special occasions will feel like a magical escape.
The expansive master suite is dreamy. With an abundance of natural light and soaring ceilings, hardwood floors, and a luxurious gas fireplace, your private paradise warms and unwinds you after a long day. The en-suite has a soaking tub, separate water closet, and cavernous shower! The white herringbone heated marble floors in the walk-in dressing room keep you cozy and warm while planning for your day or getting ready for a night out. This master bedroom is truly transformative.
The current owners loved the richness of this home’s history and decided to preserve the character while bringing it into the 21st century. They also love new construction, so instead of just restoring it, they created the best of both worlds; old-world charm and a new home look. All the plumbing, electrical, bathrooms and kitchens, HVAC are brand new, some rooms were reconfigured to make them useful for today’s living expectations. The transformation brings new world color to a timeless classic from the black-and white period.
All the landscaping, lighting and gardens were meticulously replanted and improved. A koi pond and water feature were also added. Many of the 80-year-old trees have been lovingly trimmed and dressed. Once in a lifetime, a truly masterful home is available for new ownership. A home with the richness of history that makes you wonder about its story… This extraordinary home is like no other. A classic home with a touch of contemporary. It is my pleasure to introduce you to this property. Offered at $2,000,000.
