Step into paradise with this gorgeous Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired residence which offers the best of all worlds. Snake Creek Canyon Retreat is located on a wooded and pristine 331-acre lot with breathtaking views of Midway, Heber Valley, and the stunning Wasatch Mountains. This 10,400-square foot retreat is truly an outdoor enthusiast’s dream. Even though the residence seems like something one would find in the middle of the wilderness, it is just seven minutes away from Midway with convenient access to the charming boutiques around Midway Town Square among many other amenities.
One of the best qualities this extraordinary residence has to offer is the seclusion and privacy, which makes it the perfect outdoor retreat. In the winter, this property is literally at the end of the road backing up to endless acres of National Forest and State Park land.
The home itself is breathtaking. The entryway was built from living wood, and the rest of the exterior is a Wyoming fence wood. The inside is expansive, but has a cozy feel because of the warmth of the hardwoods throughout the home and intimate spaces. With seven bedrooms and eight full bathrooms and another partial bathroom, the home can accommodate many guests. The smart layout makes it easy for multiple families to stay in the residence at the same time, which makes for the perfect place to spend quality time with the family and entertain guests.
The inside swimming pool will allow you to swim year-round in the warmth and comfort of an inside space while viewing the great outdoors in all its seasons through windows that span floor-to-ceiling.
The interior of the home offers features you won’t find anywhere else. The library is made of wood from a 17th century English castle and has secret doors, which makes it feel like it was lifted right out of a romance novel. The dining room has three glass walls, so you can eat your dinner while imagining yourself in a treehouse. The outdoor wrap-around decks are made of tigerwood, so you have a lovely space to check out the property’s unbelievable views.
The proximity to Park City’s world-class ski resorts and restaurants along with the Heber Valley Private Airport will satisfy any homeowner looking to entertain guests for the weekend. For those who enjoy fishing and water sports, Snake Creek Retreat is just minutes away from the Provo River, Deer Creek Reservoir, and the Jordanelle Reservoir.
Anyone lucky enough to own this beautiful residence wouldn’t need to go far to engage in endless outdoor activities. The property provides ample options for skiing, snowmobiling, hunting, dirt biking, ATV riding, horseback riding, mountain biking, and hiking.
