When you’re buying homes to live in full time, you typically furnish those homes over time. You may have your grandmother’s buffet, the end tables you bought in California, the new dining room table. And as you move you buy or sell pieces to fit your needs and tastes. When you buy a vacation or investment home in a different area, odds are SO VERY GOOD that you aren’t going to bother with shipping things out to furnish it. This is why many properties in Park City are sold furnished: it’s absurd for the sellers and buyers to ship all of their furniture out or into the house, so we sell them with furniture because it’s convenient.
The Colony at White Pine Canyon is a ski-in/ski-out development adjoining Canyons Resort (and next year, should be accessible by Park City Mountain Resort as well). We have lots of lovely neighborhoods but for my money, Colony has always been on my A-List. Typically the lots are large, 5 acres or more, heavily wooded with mostly aspen trees, very very private. This is a particular price range: listed right now the median list price is $6.795M and the average is $8.673M, least expensive listing is $3.75M and most expensive is $24.6M. And in this type of price range, there can be a tendency to build bigger and bigger. More features, more rooms, more more more. The issue I run into is that it’s very difficult to find a buyer for a property that feels like a compound. Most people want a house that feels like a home, is livable and comfortable, and could accommodate the whole family at Thanksgiving if needed. Yesterday I toured a house that fits that bill and was just gorgeous. The full listing, while it lasts, can be found here: 79 White Pine Canyon Road, Park City, UT 84098

The living spaces and decor looked like they could have been from a magazine, MidMOD Quarterly or something (is that real? I’d subscribe to it.)
