List Price: Sold
Property Profile: 1,429 sq. ft. | 2 bed, 2 bath
Our Opinion: There’s something to be said for putting just the right amount of space in just the right spot, and we’d say the owners of this delicious dish have done just that. This little number (daydream-worthy front porch included) is perched on the cusp of Capitol Hill and one of our favorite up ‘n’ coming ‘hoods, Marmalade. Not only are these sweet streets (Quince, Apricot, and Walnut among them) incredibly walkable and oh-so-charming, but they’re also the soon-to-be home of a new branch of the Salt Lake City Public Library. The walk-up, through a climate-consciously-landscaped front yard, is enough to tickle any type of fancy. Those in the gardening loop will delight to know that the owners have installed two cold frames out front (for those not, that’s really effing cool). The updated interior is a breezy, spacious, and well-thought out surprise (also: newer appliances, water heater, furnace, and electrical). Hardwood floors, new paint, and nice, high ceilings make it feel more “spacious oasis” than “charming little casa”. The kitchen, living, and dining areas flow right into one another (again, thanks to a small project from the current owners), so parties with your peeps will be a cinch in any season. The main suite has its own ensuite bath (!), and a delightful set of doors leading right out to the peachy-keen porch. In the fenced, private backyard you’ll find a spot of grass (nicely shaded by a few mature trees), a boxed garden (irrigated–for veggies, berries, what-have-you), and a perfect patio spot, seated right next to an old, stone hearth (the beautiful space is the result of a complete overhaul–many a toiling hour from the current owner/gardening guru). We’d say this is a good place to put down roots and grow. This is the good life, folks. No pits in sight.
