OFF MARKET This dreamy cottage is a cup of English countryside in the Aves, and is seated on precisely .59 acres–an unheard of bit of earth around these parts. The original owner commissioned the space for his British bride, in the hopes of gifting her a bit of England in her new stateside home...

 The result is the pitch-perfect embodiment of a “storybook cottage”...

Particular rooms we die for: the entryway landing, and the kitchen (a modestly-sized number, completely remodeled by the current owners, that functions flawlessly in the space). 

The main living area features original, raked-cement cathedral ceilings, and a stunning fireside. The cutting garden off the front of the house means roses and peonies are accessible by kitchen windows through September.

Tiered backyard

That's a whole lot of sunset-watching space. And this garden has been beautifully maintained since the home was built, nearly 100 years ago.

Nooks, crannies, and an air of timelessness abound

The home is historic from the exterior, but the finishes, craftsmanship, and styling are unparalleled. The roof, boiler, and front and back decks are all brand new; the tiles in the kitchen (imported from a monastery in France), the pantry’s hidden subzero drawer, and the wood-burning stove in the sunroom are all thoughtfully-fitting additions, too. The solid wood doors, leaded glass windows, and Japanese maple out back, however, are all original, and stand as true testaments to the timelessness of good style. 

It’s a quiet elegance, here, and precisely the sort of house we live to love.

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.
