Hello I Log You: Timber Wolf Lodges 11D

I like log construction you guys. The green metal roofs, the orange posts, the playing on the carpet with Lincoln Logs nostalgia. Not sorry. And it seems like it’s been a while since I waxed poetic about it, and this super cute Timber Wolf Lodge unit came on the market recently, so, two birds with one stone.

These condos are at the Canyons, are just a short walk to skiing, and have attached garages! This one is at 3987 N Timber Wolf Lane, unit 11D, Park City, UT 84060. Click here for listing information.

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.

Old Town is a very exciting place, the heart of the city, and being the historic district full of opportunities and obligations to honor and preserve our town’s heritage. As properties are offered up for sale, it’s another chance for a new Park City enthusiast to come in and embody their appreciation for our beautiful mountain town.

Gettin’ a little emotional here you guys.

Coming to Market: 2-bd Town Lift

Very exciting news, people. There hasn’t been a Town Lift condo to hit the market in ages; the last one sold in December 2014. A beautiful, never-rented 2-bd is coming to market soon, and because of my spectacularrrr network, I was one of the first to know and by extension, now you know too.

It’s a top-floor, 2-bedroom condo, nicely remodeled, facing the quiet Park Ave side over Davanza’s Pizza with fantastic views of the ski slopes and Town Lift. Oh, and it comes with T W O ASSIGNED underground parking spaces. The joke here is that you’re buying Main Street parking and ski storage and you get a bonus condo with it. Town Lift at Park City Resort is just one building over, or you can walk through the connected underground garage. When it hits the open market it will likely be priced somewhere around $950,000-1,000,000. Let me know if you’d like to talk more about it or if you’d like to go see it.

Town Lift condos are at 693 Main St, Park City, UT 84060, and here is a map to show you just how close they are to Park City Resort’s Town Lift (*really* close).

Development Update: 820 Park Ave (Rio Grande)

The old Rio Grande train depot parcel and the depot building itself have been a massive construction site for the last year as the developers ready the space for 10 new condos and a ski-in/ski-out plaza. The project is finally nearing completion, with rumors of a Certificate of Occupancy as early as the end of February, and the closing of all 10 units possibly as early as mid-March.

This is a fun time to look at the original renderings and see how close things are to the concept designs:

Newsletter 12/15: TWO FEET of New Snow, New Projects, and Maurice Sendak

Happy December!

We’re shoveling out from a whopper of a snowstorm yesterday afternoon/night/this morning. Salt Lake got a whopper last Monday. The snow stake at Snowbird disappeared last night (and the comments are A+, “just quit your job”).

One of the best things to do in Park City after a huge snowstorm is to book yourself into Deer Valley’s Fireside Dining. We’re talking carving off the melty bits of giant wheels of Swiss Raclette cheese, placed precariously close to a roaring fireplace and serving it with cured meats and pickled things; basically my favorite assortment of foods. There are other stations of course of roasted meats and simmering pots but honestly, I’m good with 10 or 12 plates of that cheese and a bottle of wine.

323 Park Ave: A Love Story

Hello, My name is Kristina and I have a thing for historic buildings. Particularly historic buildings in the Wild West. So lucky for me, I sell real estate in an old silver town turned ski resort. Two years ago I toured 323 Park Ave, A CONVERTED SWEDISH LUTHERAN CHURCH OMG. And, it’s now for sale. If it lasts that long, it’ll be on Open House tour Wednesday, December 9, 2015, and you’d be crazy to miss it. So get ready. Imma lay down some sick history beats.

323ParkAveI saw this house during the Park City Museum’s Historic Home Tour. If you’re ever in Park City in June you have to attend this event.

It’s just a few doors up from where I was living in Old Town and true to rumor, is a converted church and on the national historic registry and obviously the Historic Sites Inventory with Park City. An English-born butcher John William Bircumshaw (who also owned a saloon at 455 Main) deeded the land to St. John’s Swedish Lutheran Church in 1906. In 1907 the structure was built at a cost of $2,197 to serve the 31 local Lutherans (9 Swedes and 22 Finns, for those keeping score at home).

Lies, Damned Lies, and Statistics: 3Q 2015 Park City Stats Committee

I am a member of the Park City Board of Realtors Statistics Committee, and every quarter we gather to look at how the sales numbers actually shake out, and we compare it to our personal anecdotes about what has been happening in our individual businesses. And every quarter we collectively walk away with wide eyes, open minds, and particular areas we plan to watch for the next quarter. It’s a reality check, the whole picture. As we all know, by picking and choosing particular stats, advertising and news media can paint any economic picture. As Benjamin Disraeli said (and Mark Twain made famous): “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.”

Yesterday’s stats meeting was another brain melter. Two years I’ve been attending and I haven’t left a meeting yet feeling like there were no surprises left. Get ready: there is a lot of meat to chew through here. So, I have a TL;DR Version and a Full Edition. LET’S DO THIS THING.

TL;DR

Lower Deer Valley condos are finally selling. Prospector and Kimball Junction condos are selling like crazy. Jordanelle is going gangbusters on condos, houses and vacant land. If you’re building a home, you’re probably buying land in Heber or Jordanelle. The PCMR/Canyons connection is potentially making Deer Valley more exclusive. Median sales price for single family homes in the Park City limits is $1.439M, up 18% over last year; Snyderville Basin $874,500, up 20%; Heber Valley $354,900, up 3%; Kamas Valley $475,000, up 35%. Greater Park City, median home prices are steadily increasing, but are in the same range as 2006, 2009 and 2010.
