Place of Worship | Natural History

Consistency is counterfeit. The state of things is ever-changing–especially in a climate as tempestuous as that of the state we currently call “home”. Snowfall can be debilitating [and, some years, non-existent], heat and drought can cause massive forest fires, and the ever-capricious rainfall can evoke the wrath of flash floods and landslides. For all intents …

Quint-Essentials | Fetching Firesides

We unveiled our new Quint-Essentials series a few weeks back [wherein we doted on a few choice cookeries], but if’n you need a refresher, here’s the skinny: in each Quint-Essentials blog we’ll harp on a few [five, to be exact] of our favorite things. Pools, front doors, backyards, chandeliers…we’re slimming down the pickins and giving …

East Liberty Tap House

America’s days as a fledgling republic, just stretching its fuzzy baby eagle wings into nationhood [to steal some of our favorite Colbert Report imagery], centered on face-to-face conversations. Theoretical and eventually subversive political debates between men—and more than a few under-recognized women—we now see as giants in history: Ben Franklin, George Washington, Abigail Adams, Alexander …

The Holladay Hook-up

Who doesn’t love a nicely-remodeled, mid-century peach in Holladay? No one. No one doesn’t love it. Our old pal, Mount Olympus, is looming high over this casa, which just happens to have some pretty great valley views. You know we can get down with a good bit of MCM charm…and this puppy’s got it in …

Why We Should Stage Everything

Most folks don’t know that there is a connection between real estate and design, but those familiar with cityhomeCOLLECTIVE know that we don’t just know it–it’s our damn philosophy. For me, the idea of creating a real estate brokerage that also focused on design came about simply due to my desire to make a career …

Whiskey Street | Sips + Eats

Let’s take a trip back to the good ol’ days of our buddy, Brigham, shall we? Legend goes, when Mr. Young was tasked with naming the portion of what is now Main Street, between 200 and 400 South, he dubbed it “Whiskey Street.” It was–we’re told–a reference to the many saloons, brothels and taverns that the …

800 E | Smitten

List Price: Under Contract Neighborhood: Central City Property Profile: 1,300 sq. ft. | 2 bed, 2 bath Our Opinion: This is the perfect balance between old and new, victorian and modern. Originally built in 1874, this cottage doubled in size with a modern addition off the back in the mid 90s. What resulted was the feeling …
