Our Opinion: You know we looove to pair people with places, right? You know all about our belief that for each unique human there is an equally unique space–one that’s meant to support them perfectly, be it forever or just for a short spell in time. When you’re ready to buy, it’s imperative that you take the extra steps needed to land in that space in which you really belong. And if you’re renting for a while before you buy, why not take the same tack? (Love where you live is more than just a motto.) What you see below is a pretty special place that a particularly special person has called ‘home’ for some time–Utah Film Center’s founder and documentary film maker, Geralyn Dreyfous, has lived here with her family for years. Nestled in an acre of woods, surrounded by a stream, and perched just at the end of tree-lined and private Fardown Avenue, this rental opportunity is serene and secluded, to say the very least. The home and its contents are as rich and colorful as Geralyn’s vast travels and experience. Take note of that perfectly-placed Mongolian yurt in the back yard: a token from working on the Sundance film Eagle Huntress (and, says the owner, it’s equally ideal “for sleeping or yoga”). Fully furnished and comfortably laid out for summer, the home is brimming with bright, sunny rooms and a back yard that would see you taking in all the Vitamin D a human can handle. The main suite is equipped with its own entrance, and that two-car garage has an upper studio and full bath (sounds perfect for a nanny or guest). If you’re looking for an acre of magic to call home for the next year or two…well, it doesn’t get much better than this.
