Nestled in the hills of North Salt Lake, this spectacular one-acre, 11,722-square-foot home perfectly combines the best of indoor and outdoor living. Using the finest finishes, the interior is designed to be both refined and expressly livable. Large spaces provide the ideal setting for gatherings and entertaining, while more intimate spaces are designed as enclaves for relaxing, creating and playing. Walnut woodwork, cabinetry and flooring bring warmth and beauty to main floor living, while the volume ceilings and expansive windows highlight the many open and light-filled rooms. All throughout, the design is warm, inviting and timeless.
The interior focal point of the home is the combined family room, informal dining and chef’s kitchen. With soaring ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows, this space is the visual gateway to the beautifully landscaped and feature-rich back yard. Designed for flexibility, this combined area easily accommodates guests of fifty or more, while working equally well as a relaxing space for two. The chef’s kitchen features expansive work surfaces with all the expected luxury appliances and an island designed for more gathering.
Additional features of the home include a luxurious master suite with an attached spa room, five guest bedrooms (all en suite), an open home theater and game room, and the soaring 30’ by 50’ indoor sports court. In-floor radiant heating provides warm, consistent heat throughout the home. The hospital-quality air filtration system supplies consistently clean inside air for a healthy interior environment.
The home includes fully automated climate control, scene lighting, audio and security and is protected by a 25-kilowatt-hour emergency generator. The spacious garage includes a 100-ampere Tesla charging system. Additionally, the hom
e is structurally designed to accommodate a future elevator.
Walkouts from all three levels reveal an outdoor experience as thoughtfully designed as the interior. Landscaping features a mountain eco-system of pines, spruce and indigenous plants designed both for beauty and easy maintenance. The mountain feel is enhanced by two spring-fed water features, meandering trails with bridges, and hidden lookouts and panoramic views of the Great Salt Lake. The saltwater swimming pool is another inviting focal point of the outdoor design.
The secluded lot location — backing to national forest service property — provides an ideal dark-sky environment for the working observatory. The hills just above the property feature mountain biking and hiking trails, and the Eaglewood Golf Course is just steps away. Among luxury homes in the greater Salt Lake City area, few are as conveniently located — it is just 10 minutes to downtown and 15 minutes to the airport.
