We were giddy. We actually felt those high school crush heart palpitations the first time we walked through this custom 2-story, because it exemplifies what SunCrest living is all about: gorgeous homes, unbeatable views, clean air, and an active lifestyle.
Situated atop one of SunCrest’s most elevated streets, it stands proudly on a near three quarter-acre lot, overlooking 270 degree views of Gambel Oak, with cities and lakes seen below.
Our hearts actually skipped a beat when we first went inside. All that natural light! Hours of meticulous forethought went into planning the exact placement of every window and it shows. Not only do the windows flood all three floors with light, they ensure those very views you’re seeking are placed exactly where you want them, at eye level, at each turn.
In designing the space, the sellers doubled down on every design element and created each space to be magazine or #motivationalmonday worthy. Sliding barn doors, stylish hardwoods, in vogue white, gray, and blue cabinets, thick slabs of granite, chic tile; and well, the list can go and on, really.
It’s near impossible to have a favorite spot in this place. When asked, the sellers said it’s a toss up between the kitchen/family room with all its open air, or the fresh air on the 16×20 covered deck. Spring fever anyone?
We are taken (twitterpated, even) by the main floor master retreat. It’s spacious, thanks to its high coffered ceilings and oversized closet (seriously, it’s huge!) and dazzles with its double vanities and resort style spa finishes. The real show stoppers are the sliding glass doors that lead to the private deck, that’s hot tub ready.
Upstairs find 2 bedrooms, a bonus room, a full bathroom and views that are even more impressive with the added elevation.
The lower level was crafted for life’s “anytime” moments – game time, family time, or leave me alone time – it handles form and fashion with ease.
Mind if we end on a teaser? When it’s time to bring the kids or dogs on a tour, be sure show them the hidden hideout under the stairs or the custom dog bath. Be still our hearts!
The word “literally” gets thrown around a lot by people these days who aren’t exactly using it correctly, so we want to make sure you know what we mean when we use it. We mean exactly. Precisely. As in, this house is literally one of a kind. It was built as a custom home, and this is literally the first time it will be available since the original owner moved in.
Literally, you can see incredible views of Traverse Mountain, Utah County, and Utah Lake from the large windows scattered around the house. The home sits on a dead-end private lane so you get quiet seclusion in your own mountain retreat.
After you go through the oversized solid wood front door, take in the views along the back, and snap out of your panorama daze, you’ll check out the main floor. Kitchen, dining, and family area all open to each other – the most sought-after trifecta in house hunting today.
The kitchen is not one of those precious museum pieces; it’s meant to be used and is well-equipped for the discerning chef.
Round that out with a main floor master bedroom complete with its own deck and the front room that’s perfect for an office, parlor or sitting room and you literally have everything you need.
That makes the upstairs even more impressive. There are 3 bedrooms up there, a full bath, and a loft. And if you thought the views on the main were great, just wait until you see them one level up.
The downstairs level will up your cool factor with friends: a wet bar, fireplace, and oversized windows. Currently a shrine to Seattle (go Seahawks!) but ready for you to rededicate to Utes, Cougars, Jazz, or just repurpose the space.
With a literal half-acre yard, two decks, and an outdoor entertaining space you can spread out to soak up the views up close and personal. This is literally an opportunity you won’t see again.
