You all know Darby, right? She's our self proclaimed, "typical Utah housewife….that home-brews on the regular, wrangles chickens and kids, makes charcuterie from the game meat she just 'brought in', and ends the day with a smokin' cocktail party for a few dozen of her closest friends." Amen. All told, she's one of our very favorite Salt Lakers…not only because she contributes masterfully-clever stories to our website on the regular, but because she's also a historian, booze-buff, and former firefighter and archeologist. She's our favorite kind of question mark--
"a refreshing paradox of vulgarity and southern charm."

Adorable bungalow, fantastic neighborhood, great proximity to all sorts of great stuff.

Writing and thoughtfully-placed curse words aside, however, this Kentucky mama has a billion talents. Among them are making a happy home and whipping up a sincerely mouth-watering cocktail. And, while reading this story won't get you the latter, you can at least get excited about the former. You see, Darby, her hubby Mike (the Harvard-educated landscape architect behind that xeriscaped front yard), and their two handsome boys will soon be putting down roots in a new SLC home…which means the cutie-pah (that's how she'd pronounce it) home you see in the photos below will be available for the next owner to make his/her own personal paradise. Adorable bungalow, fantastic neighborhood, great proximity to all sorts of great stuff, and a backyard fit for chickens and the like. Cocktails courtesy of Darby dearest; delicious eats courtesy of our very own HSL (and truth be told, we couldn't get enough of either). This is a home you'll want to make your own, and for under $400k, you very likely can. Keep your eyes peeled…when this bird hits the ground, we assure you, she'll be running.

From the cheery exterior and planter boxes out front to the bouncing pup (who goes by the adorable name of Cowboy, by the way) and light, bright interior, there’s something implicitly welcoming about this rosy home…

When one of our good pals decided it was time to move on from her fab Avenues pad, she reached out to us for first steps. Our recommendation: throw a party, of course! And can you blame us? With a space as charming as hers in a building equally so, you hardly need a reason to celebrate…

When you buy a home, there’s a whole lot that comes with it. Yes, there are (presumably) ceilings and walls and flooring and fixtures, but the truth is your home extends well beyond your front door. Your home is your street and your neighborhood; it’s your community and the people in it...
