Magnificent architectural gem in Pepperwood

By: Summit Sotheby’s International Realty 

Everything about this Parade of Homes masterpiece is grand, including the finishes, size, and scale. Unique architectural elements like the barrel vaulted and cathedral ceilings add intrigue and interest. The dynamic entry features extensive custom woodwork, drawing eyes to the gothic-style windows in the formal living room. The Venetian plaster paint, white wainscoting, and herringbone floors draw you into the home, while the magnificent mountain and valley views keep you mesmerized by the windows.

Imagine sipping your favorite drink, while taking in the views. You are high up in the trees, in the coveted neighborhood of Pepperwood, one of Salt Lake City’s most exclusive, prestigious, and luxurious gated communities.

Entertaining here is a dream in the gourmet kitchen, with Thermador appliances, dark wood cabinetry, exotic counter-tops, bar seating for eight, and a large island. There is also a formal dining area, perfect for holiday get-togethers. Relax and unwind in the main-floor master suite by the stone fireplace, or access the second floor deck for some cool mountain air. Other master bedroom highlights include a wet-bar, hardwood floors, plantation shutters, tray and vaulted ceilings.

The spacious master closet is decked out with chandeliers, a dresser, and is ready to exhibit an exquisite wardrobe. The master bath has a circular design with his and hers counter-tops, sinks, and cabinetry, with a grand soaking tub in the middle. The beautifully tiled shower features a rain shower-head, and the sauna is an added bonus.

Downstairs, you’ll find an expansive second living room, a full kitchen, game room, and pool table area, ideal for casual entertaining, like pool parties! The wood beams in the ceiling add a nice architectural touch, while the above-grade windows let in lots of natural light. The walkout doors lead to a perfectly manicured lawn. Noteworthy rooms downstairs include a princess room that looks like something straight out of a fairy tale, a play room, craft room, and theater room. The fitness room showcases custom glass doors, and overlooks a large indoor basketball court.

There is also a stately office with ornate custom cabinetry, a fireplace, and a separate, private entrance from the street.

Outside, the pool (one of the first “zero chemical” pools in Utah), hot tub, fire-pit, and paved walkway are surrounded beautifully with boulders, brilliant landscape lighting, coniferous trees, and exotic grasses. A wood beam and stone pergola sits next to a tranquil waterfall and flowing creek water feature. Views from the whole outdoor area magnificently overlook the entire city and valley. There is a wooden playground with long double slides, swings, and a tire swing. The four-car garage features custom cabinets, copper accents, epoxy floors, handmade brick, and a Tesla plug-in.

Every detail has been well thought out and planned in this home. Amenities include a 24-hour guarded gate, a pool staffed with lifeguards, a hot tub, playground, and pavilion for entertaining, as well as basketball courts, tennis courts, and biking and jogging paths, which lead to more extensive trails outside the planned community.
