Our Opinion: SLC–our fabulous city of salt, our home, our love, our muse–was founded July 24th, 1847 (Pioneer Day!). Soon thereafter, in 1878, this resplendently-historic homestead was built. Tucked into the be-fruited streets of Marmalade, this majestic casa is beautiful, private, and most certainly a taste of the “good ol’ days”. Though the bones be old, make no mistake–this is a sturdy build. There are plenty of original, historic details throughout the space, and all of the new work/upgrades have been completed using period-appropriate materials and design (including an amaze O’Keefe Merritt range in the kitchen, and sublime vintage tiles in the bathroom). High ceilings, large, natural-light-givin’ windows, and six (6!) original fireplaces make this spot equal parts “venerable vintage” and “breezy retreat”. Originally built as a three-room structure, it was expanded in Eastlake style to include a formal dining room, butler’s pantry (fancy), kitchen, and an additional three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Also included: two laundry rooms (one up, one down) and a steam shower in the upstairs bath. The downstairs bathroom is plumbed and wired, ready to install whichever ornate, clawfooted tub you choose, and the owners have historically-accurate floor tile ready and waiting to be laid down and made rad (also ready for your touches: professionally-drawn design plans for sink and full shower). The backyard is a lush, fruitful, and utterly private paradise (think: The Secret Garden). The large rock wall keeps hidden a new custom-build shed, a few mature trees (including pear, peach, cherry, apple, and plum for goods long into the fall), a couple of raised veggie garden beds (with automated full watering system), and a cute as all get-out two-story stone playhouse. The possibilities are endless with this sweet old space. For lovers of SLC’s past, present, and bright-ass future: this is the place.
