Find Your Space | Vol. Six

FANCY DOESN’T ALWAYS COME WITH A FORK. We’ve mentioned a time or two (or thousand) in the past that we hold a few dictums nearer and dearer than the rest: clean lines, fine design, and supporting local with a die-hard ferocity are of the utmost importance to our COLLECTIVE soul, and we’re doing what we can …

Pavement-Pounding Party!

As we’re hoping many of you know, we’re willing to rep the LGBTQ community in any way we can all 365 days a year. But we’re pretty jazzed about Utah Pride 2015. The opportunity to gather our gang and ballyhoo down our favorite city’s streets in the name of love? Oh, HELL yes. The annual …

11th & Laird

List Price: 612,000.00 Neighborhood: Harvard & Yale Property Profile: 3,877 sq. ft. | 5 bed, 4 bath Our Opinion: This roomy number is straddling two of our favorite SLC neighborhoods, which we think makes her twice as nice. Placed perfectly on the cusp of 9th & 9th and Harvard & Yale, this Victorian Cape-Cottage (we’re working on getting …

Highland Drive | Man Alive

List Price: 497,000.00 Neighborhood: Holladay Property Profile: 2,421 sq. ft. | 3 bed, 3 bath Our Opinion: This mid-century modern magnet is sitting pretty in a prime, Holladay location. The bones are about as desirable as they come, which means the possibilities with this one are practically limitless (you know we love that). Could be a stylish live/work space, …

Ivanhoe | Lucky #7

List Price: 265,000.00 Neighborhood: Central City Property Profile: 1,033 sq. ft. | 2 bed, 1 bath Our Opinion: For all her classic, historic charm and downtown walkability, we do so love the Ivanhoe. The exterior harkens to an era when carriages were perhaps a bit more mainstay, but the interiors have been deliciously redone. The result: a Victorian facade we’re …

Sparano + Mooney | Open House

Due in no small part to their stellar architectural designs and downright-pleasing demeanors, Sparano + Mooney is one of our COLLECTIVE favorite pairings (they round out our top three, in fact, along with gin + tonic and Hall + Oates). For those in the lurch, John Sparano and Anne Mooney are two of SLC’s most …

At Home in Holladay

List Price: 650,000.00 Neighborhood: Holladay Property Profile: 4,814 sq. ft. | 5 bed, 3.5 bath Our Opinion: We are mighty keen on this space. But really, this gorgeous home speaks for itself. Nestled in a quaint Cul-de-Sac in a most charming Holladay neighborhood lies the house of your dreams…or so we assume. So many beautiful features, we …

Summit Haus | Life in Your Space

For those of you who were lucky enough to attend/recall our sustainability-inspired lounge night in February, you likely remember Chris Price. Young. Motivated. The architect that built that sweet-ass, passive solar home in Summit Park with his own hands. Yes, him. Chris and his ‘Summit Haus’ are two recipients of our COLLECTIVE thumbs up emoji. …

Bar-X | Easy Drink

We admire those trendsetters, trailblazers, and innovators that further the cause of making SLC ever more badass. Having been established in 1933 (adios, Prohibition!), we can safely say that Bar-X is the cool, war-tatted, Cadillac-driving granddaddy of hooch-slingers in this town. True, the speakeasy’s been holding it down on 2nd South since the days of …

Quint-Essentials | Decked to the Nines

The warm’s a-comin’, people, and we can’t stop thinking ’bout summer nights out back with a few of our besties and a glass of something goooood… We’ve got a few fabulous outdoorsy-type spaces in our Rolodex of favorite places, so we thought it might be time for another Quint-Essentials (should you need reminding, this is …

Certifiably Sensational

List Price: Sold Neighborhood: Olympus Cove Property Profile: 3,750 sq. ft. | 4 bed, 3 bath Our Opinion: This Olympus Cove stunner is a solid representative of aaallll the good stuff: green built, super energy-efficient modern home with stunner views and ridiculously-easy access to mountain trails. What does ‘super energy-efficient’ cover? Oh, just solar heat and water, …

2991 W 4275 S | Roy Story

List Price: 194,900.00 Neighborhood: Roy Property Profile: 2,054 sq. ft. | 5 bed, 1.75 bath Our Opinion: In a buttoned-up twist on Americana, this Roy sweetheart is decked to the nines in red, white, and black. A unique, multi-level number, this casa boasts granite counter tops, pops of two-tone paint, and an open floor plan that would …
