A Stunner in the Colony at White Pine Canyon

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.)

Tavaci at Big Cottonwood Canyon

Exciting news about the Tavaci project up Big Cottonwood Canyon. Big Cottonwood Canyon is home to Solitude and Brighton ski resorts, and is just the prettiest drive in the fall. The scenic byway that takes you up the canyon and to the resorts in the summer connects to Guardsman Pass, which means you can drive from Park City to Big Cottonwood or back (only in the summer!). The Tavaci project is tucked into the base of the canyon, and has been planned as a gated community with 43 lots, 40+ acres of open space, and a very careful master plan to ensure that the homes built and yards kept all enhance, not detract from the canyon’s natural beauty. With more and more people looking to get out of the inversion in the Salt Lake Valley, gorgeous communities like this make a short commute completely worthwhile: 20 minutes from Tavaci to the Salt Lake International Airport, 30 minutes to Park City. Tavaci had seen some delays but is moving forward at full speed now, featuring Guy Dreier Designs. Guy Dreier is known for contemporary style using organic form, and is famous for his spectacular homes in Palm Springs, Boca Raton, Vail, Salt Lake, and La Jolla.
