Black Diamond Lodge, Penthouse #341

Black Diamond Lodge is right at the base of lower Deer Valley, the last property up the mountain past Snow Park Lodge. The location is ridiculous. You drive PAST the St. Regis to get to Black Diamond. It’s the end of the road. Any farther and you’d just be driving up the mountain. Take a look at this map and see just how ridiculous said location is:

As such, it’s a prime property for summer and winter: winter because it’s ski-in/ski-out. But summer is an interesting one, not because of conventions or long summer bookings like we see at other properties. Nope, Black Diamond is where you want to be in the summer because you are looking down at the Snow Park amphitheatre and maybe you’re new to this but Deer Valley puts on some amazing concerts ALL. SUMMER. LONG.

This property is listed by a colleague of mine at Summit Sotheby’s International Realty, and for the moment, listing details can be found here.

And here is a casual video showing. Many times great properties will come to market and if you’re out of town, you can’t just drop everything and come walk through. So, one of the services I provide is to walk through properties you’re interested in and film them so you can get a much better feel for the floorplan. If you see a property online that you’d like more information on, please let me know and I’m happy to film a walkthrough for you.

6 Eagle Ct: Ski house video walkthrough

This is a walkthrough video of an excellent house in the American Flag subdivision of Deer Valley, in Park City, Utah. Tremendous views, very comfortable as-is or good potential for a remodel.

This home is listed by colleagues of mine at Summit Sotheby’s International Realty, but I’d love to represent you as a buyer!

Development Update: Goldener Hirsch Expansion

Big news: the Goldener Hirsch in upper Deer Valley is expanding, building out the last parcel in Silver Lake. Summit Sotheby’s International Realty will be the listing broker for the development, but the project is so early in the planning stages that there are very few official details to share. However, this is exciting enough to warrant a little recon. Sign up for news on this project as it is released.

Here is the full planning commission packet (.pdf) regarding the initial expansion concepts.

The parking lot at Silver Lake below (to the east of) Stein Eriksen Lodge and the empty lot next to it will be the new project. In the renderings you can see the existing road, Sterling Court, (that goes to the Inn at Silver Lake and the underground parking at Mont Cervin Plaza) will go through the project, with the original Goldener to the east and the new buildings to the west of the road.

View Had Me Like Whoa: 7815 Falcon Ct in Bald Eagle, Deer Valley

I frequently see homes upwards of $5M that are terrible. (The Mo’ Money principle.) The higher the price tag, often the more specific the home and the less agreeable it will be to a larger number of people. You can see why: if you’re going to own a home that expensive it’d better be exactly the way you want it.

Which is why I don’t talk about every high-end home I see. It’s like dropping names, “Oh, I was in a $9M house today lah tee dah.” For it to be worth talking about, it really is more about the character of the home. Last Wednesday I toured a home in the gated upper Deer Valley Resort-area community of Bald Eagle that is definitely worth talking about. For the moment, this house is for sale, and you can view the official photos here and additional listing information (and full MLS property search) here.

I can’t stress enough how important a good entry is, and this house had some to spare. In the front door, down a few steps to a balcony overlooking the living area.

Quick Location Video: Lower Deer Valley/Old Town

My Quick Location Video series addresses what I see to be a pretty common theme in real estate, rental, and tourism: the writer just assumes you know what the names are for all the areas and that you know what those names mean. I’m guilty of falling into that trap myself, so here is my attempt to absolve myself. These 1-2 minute videos will just give you a quick rundown of what you can find in the area and what some of the key features are.

Part of my Quick Location Video series, where I do a quick rundown of the different areas of Park City, Utah. Today I am on Rossi Hill Drive, talking about the Old Town side of Lower Deer Valley. Even though properties in this area are on Deer Valley Drive and on the way up to Snow Park, they are categorized as Old Town. I filmed this a few weeks ago when we’d had a long patch of sunny and warm weather, so this storm—while welcomed at the resorts—caught everybody by surprise.
