Peak Living – Summit Creek’s New Custom Dream Home

By Julie Roberts

Imagine a home suspended along the mountainside, high above Utah Valley’s inversion below, where relaxed, sophisticated interiors captivate and breathtaking views, both inside and out, reign supreme. At Summit Creek, this reverie has been made a reality, all thanks to acclaimed interior designer Becki Owens, architect Rob McQuay and builder Split Rock Custom Homes. Here, the inimitable trio has brought to life a mountainside architectural that, simply put, can’t be found elsewhere—which is why the four-bedroom estate recently won the Judge’s Choice Award at the 2019 Utah Valley Parade of Homes.

Located at 791 South Nebo Circle and offered at $1,999,000, the masterful mountain home features modern, clean lines and organic elements woven throughout its seamless indoor and outdoor spaces, bringing chic West Coast flair to Utah. The interiors are replete with warm oak wood floors and expansive glass windows that offer incomparable views of the surrounding peaks, Mount Timpanogos just beyond and canyon below, evoking a true sense of floating amid the Wasatch. Within each space, no view has been compromised. In fact, the home’s vistas take center stage.

That’s not to say that interiors spare any bit of luxury, though. From the state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen, complete with marble details and custom lighting pendants, to the formal dining space and great room, each fluid living space revels in a bright, airy ambiance that’s both intimate and stylish. On the main level, glass sliding doors open seamlessly to the exterior, where the expansive deck, multiple lounge areas and hot tub offer the ultimate perch to revel in Summit Creek’s captivating backdrop year-round. Whether sipping on morning coffee, hosting guests for sunset cocktails or soaking after a day in the backcountry, this outdoor setting evokes a true sense of place above and beyond the crowds.

But, the views don’t stop there. The home’s four bedrooms, including the breathtaking master suite, are framed by views of the ever-iconic Mount Timpanogos with no obstruction in sight. The master, in particular, is completely awash in natural light via floor-to-ceiling windows, which is maximized by marble and tile finishes that span from the custom fireplace to the elegant, spa-like bathroom. Interior designer Becki Owens worked tirelessly to integrate refined, modern details that still spoke to the natural setting, sharing how the “wood chevron pattern on the master bath’s ceiling was intended to create the feeling of being nestled under the trees.”

And while the home’s allure is undeniable, the community itself merits the same praise. At Summit Creek, owners have access to 300+ acres of uninhibited land that beckon year-round adventure, as well as the community’s Loafer Clubhouse, Summit Springs pool complex and fitness center, allowing residents the opportunity to reap the endless benefits of elevated mountain living. All that’s left to ask is, are you ready to escape to the Summit?
