Property Profile: 1,444 sq. ft. | 3 bed, 2 bath
Our Opinion: For those folks who long for the quiet of the Avenues, the above-it-all views of Olympus Cove, and the proximity to all the eats ‘n’ drinks of Downtown, might we suggest Capitol Hill. This enchanting area is sporting all the small-town vibes we love about the Aves, and is seated squarely on the edge of Downtown. And this particular home on the hill has us all sorts of giddy. Imagine all the best parts of Austin, Texas (where our lovely clients hail from). A few years back, we helped them buy this space, which they fell in love with for the open space (inside and out) to live freely, the total uniqueness, and the authentic homey-ness of it all. It’s a sturdy, brick mid-mod, and as far as valley views are concerned, she’s got you covered. This spot is full of “loads of natural light through huge windows” and “seven rooms on a single level” goodness. New meets old, here, and while the bookcases and recently-uncovered wallpaper are original, you’ll find a few inconspicuously high-end appliances in the kitchen. Also new: the guest bath (and the main bath has been updated, too). Off the main house–and not included in the square footage–you’ll find a beautiful sun room (or shade room, or gardening room, or yoga studio), that acts as extra space for everything from a ping-pong tournament to cocktails ‘n’ dancing. Outside, you’ll find a nice bit of lawn (perfect for both BBQs or badminton), a slew of fruit trees, and the ever sought-after two-car garage (currently functioning as a one-car garage + studio). A little bit of everything, and just enough space. Looking for a piece of all the kingdoms? This be your slice of heaven. Austin we’re not, but let’s keep Salt Lake weird, too.
