When it comes to style and elegance, this home gets an A+

By J’Nel Wright

From its elevated view of the tree-lined street (a beloved feature of the Harvard/Yale community) and adorned with a gracious yet commanding presence, this lovely English Tudor home welcomes guests with classic elegance.

This home has been loved in a way that pays homage to the proud traditions reflected in the area’s exquisite architecture. The Harvard/Yale community remains one of the most prestigious and desirable neighborhoods in all of Salt Lake City as it continues to celebrate some of the most beautiful residences in the city.

The proud history is found in the handcrafted details of this home. A solid, mahogany door welcomes guests into a foyer capped with a finely crafted coffered ceiling. The foyer directs them into a gracious formal living room anchored with a stunning wood fireplace and crowned with a hand-plastered, coved ceiling as unique and seamless as the home’s enduring tradition.

Three bedrooms are situated on the main level with a fourth spaciously positioned on the lower level. A surprising feature is the twin staircases that offer easy access for gatherings around the family room’s handcrafted river stone fireplace. The lower level also houses a bright and spacious craft/laundry room that pairs granite countertops, custom cabinetry, and a built-in desk with an open, airy, windowed workspace. You’ll almost look forward to doing laundry.

The fully remodeled cherry kitchen with stainless steel appliances cooks up lots of charm with all of today’s modern luxuries brilliantly designed to optimize space and functionality. A friendly south-facing breakfast nook is certain to greet you in the morning with scenic views of a perfect day. In fact, generous views of the professionally designed landscape, garden, and fully fenced backyard are sprinkled throughout the home. Hardwood flooring, modern lighting, a new furnace, and Pella windows ensure seasonal comfort and timeless style.

The refinement of this home is partnered with a sensible and remarkable use of space that originated mainly with the home’s first owners in 1928. “Fortunately, the changes made throughout the years haven’t diminished the exceptional charm,” said Maura Powers, the listing agent with Summit Sotheby’s International Realty. “The classic, timeless grace that makes this home so special remains unchanged by design trends, yet it has been meticulously updated with everything one would really want in a home today.”
