Imagine falling to sleep and waking up to the gentle sounds of nature – the breeze in the aspens, songbirds chirping, and rippling water from the private mountain stream in your own back yard. Nestled quietly in the beautiful, lush, Utah landscape near the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon, you’ll find this classic, mountain retreat. Designed by the Highland Group, this one-of-a-kind, custom home will draw you in and take you miles away. There is a feeling of relaxation and serenity as you drive into the private, wooded estate-like residence. The open floor plan is laid out well for entertaining with large doors that open to the outdoors and fresh mountain air on all levels. The finishes feature natural elements and materials indigenous to the area including river rock, copper, and mixed woods that create an organic ambiance throughout. Beautiful windows flood the home with natural light. The kitchen features the high-end appliances expected in a home of this caliber including Sub-Zero and Wolf. Five bedrooms and five bathrooms in all, main floor den, large family room, mud room with built-ins, radiant heat, plus a heated driveway. The master suite is private with a cozy fireplace and a private deck. There is a large, unfinished flexible space ready for your own designer to customize into a theatre room, more bedrooms, custom laundry room, or keep it as an extra garage for all your toys. Walk out your back door with a good novel and a cup of tea to relax creek side and listen to the sounds of rushing water from the Bell Canyon Reservoir and let the kids play in the shallow pool of water that collects there. You’ll quickly forget you’re minutes from downtown Salt Lake City. It’s the perfect location for skiers and outdoor lovers, with fabled Utah ski resorts including Snowbird and Alta just a short drive away. Trails for hiking and biking are right outside your front door and an equestrian center is nearby. The home is perfect as a primary residence or a second home. The home and location present nightly or long-term rental potential for an investor. “’This is what we thought Utah would look like’ is a common remark I hear when showing homes in this part of east Sandy to buyers relocating to the Salt Lake area,” explained Debbie Nisson, the listing agent for this home. “This is a quintessential, Utah mountain home.”
