UNDER CONTRACT If there’s one block that best exemplifies what the Avenues neighborhood has to offer, it might very well be the stretch of 1st Avenue between Q and R. The street is lined with tall trees and some of the prettiest Victorian houses in town, each one even more gorgeous than the last…

This spot is one of the bunch’s prettiest. 

The front porch is tailor-made for evenings spent settled in an Adirondack watching the joggers and dog walkers pass by. And, with the current owners offering a $10,000 credit to help offset the cost of a new exterior coat of paint, you’ll easily have these digs looking their best by summer. 

A striking original staircase set into a soaring, curved turret sits just inside the home’s entry. On the first level, you’ll also find formal living and dining rooms, a spacious office, an enormous eat-in kitchen with an adjacent den, and hardwood flooring throughout. 

Upstairs, there are four bedrooms, including a large main suite complete with a walk-in shower and separate jetted tub. 

The basement is one of the most desirable we've seen—there’s plenty of storage and a large, open area that would work as either a family room or an enormous second en suite bedroom. 

Finally, we can’t overstate the uniqueness of this spot’s back yard. One of the deepest in the neighborhood, this lot, in addition to housing a 2-car garage, can easily accommodate soccer games, turkey bowls, and even the most energetic games of fetch.

Sure sounds like "home" to us. 

The Avenues

As Salt Lake’s first actual neighborhood, the Aves is packed with as much history as an Antiques Roadshow marathon. Streets A through U feature homes from Victorians to remodels and been-fixed-uppers, and the equal parts spooky and captivating Salt Lake City Cemetery rests eternally on 2nd.

Paul Svendsen

Listing Agent - 801.441.8563

Paul Svendsen has been a manager of congressional campaigns, a practitioner of law, and a renovator of more than his fair share of homes. As such, he's received our COLLECTIVE stamp of approval as a certified jack of all trades, but it's his unwavering love for all things real estate that plays so fondly on our heartstrings. Over the last decade, Paul has managed more than $20 million in architecture and construction projects. It comes as no surprise, then, that he's got a weak spot for old houses (he’s a member of the SLC Historic Landmarks Commission) and big-time fixer-uppers, and he's had a hand in the resuscitation of several dilapidated buildings. He’s just as comfortable, however, with condos, town homes, and new construction, and he does a fair share of work with investors and commercial real estate. Summed up simply, no matter the style of real estate services you seek, Paul’s wealth of experience and easy-going style are sure to fit the bill.
