A second story flat perched amid old growth sycamores overlooking historic South Temple, this Maryland apartment has us smitten. We love the Maryland Building like we love a good dark chocolate. With its stately facade and sumptuous appointments, it just speaks to us. 

When we asked the owner, Kit, our good friend, what it means to live here, he told us, “Part of what I love most about the Maryland is the simple fact it’s, in many ways, the crown jewel of historic buildings here in Salt Lake. It was built during an era without power tools by craftsmen whose attention to detail was uncompromising. You can see it everywhere - in the marble inlay running the hallways and the corbels decorating the balconies.

The Maryland is absolutely irreplaceable.

My own unit has proven to be a personal sanctuary for me. I love the connection to the natural world among the trees while also keeping close to the city.”

Several features set this particular unit apart. First, it’s one of a select few with a private balcony and, considering this to be a 2nd floor unit, said balcony sits like a cozy nest tucked in among all that foliage Kit so much loves. Second, the kitchen’s recently been remodeled and now boasts new cabinetry, marble countertops and stainless steel appliances. We love how the modernity of the improvements blends perfectly with the old world charm.

Third, the bedroom is large and comes with custom bookshelves and a built-in closet - storage space being an important factor when considering condo living.

In addition to the bedroom, this unit also comes with an additional space that could make the perfect reading room or meditation space or possibly even a nursery. The gumwood paneling throughout gives the space a rich quality while tall ceilings and transom windows bring in so much natural light.

As with all the Maryland properties we represent, we hope you will find the beauty of this beloved building moving,

and we would love to see someone take stewardship of this 203 and give it the same care Kit has done.

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.
