In the real estate world, we sometimes chuckle when we hear things are “timeless”. That’s usually code for outdated avocado wallpaper and wood paneling. So what do we call this house that hits all the style sweet spots without over-the-top fad following? Sensible? Solid?
For example, location never goes out of style, and this home is located in the corner of the Oak Vista subdivision. It’s a stone’s throw from the Amber Crest park and sits quietly off the main drag into the community. The curb appeal is fresh, charming, and welcoming.
Inside, the main floor layout continues to stand the test of time thanks to its large entry, high ceilings, and windows that bathe the main floor in natural light. Sunshine ain’t going out of style anytime soon.
We love the simplicity of the kitchen and family room. Take note of the orientation of the bar – it flows just the way you want it to – right into the family room.
The upstairs is pleasant and practical. The sellers say they love having the family all on the same level and the jury is still out if the views of SLC from the master or Utah Lake views from out front are better.
Downstairs is fully finished with plenty of space to spread out. Anytime you pair a family room with a wet bar, you know you have a winning combo for years to come.
Outside is nearly maintenance free thanks to its always green turf and low maintenance flower beds. Enjoy your weekends at the community pool and not in the yard.
While we won’t say it’s timeless, we do know there’s no time to waste to take a look; a sensible home like this disappears fast in today’s market.
We hear a lot about people and their tradeoffs; a house might have great character but no storage, or a perfect layout but no yard. That’s why this house is real treat. Yes, it has an open floor plan, and yes it also has views overlooking Mt. Timpanogas and Utah Lake, but it’s also on a quiet cul-de-sac, with a fully landscaped yard, and the (fully finished) interior is drop dead gorgeous.
We’re having a hard time finding any downside. The main level of this rambler is equal parts clean, bright, and practical. Hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings and walls dotted with windows in the granite clad kitchen make dinner prep work and life after work comfortable and cozy.
We’re obsessed with the deck that leads off the family room – I mean, if you’ve got these kind of views, why not make a deck that spans the whole width of the house?
The master retreat is tucked on the back of the home and brings breakfast in bed to a whole new level as you watch the sun rise over ‘Timp.
Our favorite feature of this home has to be the wide open lower level. We know reclaimed barn wood is always going to be show stopper, but we think the roomy and inviting space is a equally fit for a highball with friends, or playing ball with the kids.
The bright, airy gym is a unexpected find and can easily be converted to another bedroom or office should you need it.
Might be wise to jump on this one quick, homes like this are available once in a rare while. Come take a peek; there’s no downside to looking.
In the world of gardening, they talk a lot about roots. Good roots mean healthy plants. We like that idea, and we like houses with good roots because it’s where you plant your roots, too.
The sellers at 15156 S. Silkwood Ct took a strong foundation and cultivated it into something special. Nestled in a secluded cul-de-sac and still walkable to the community pool (bonus points), the curb appeal on this 2-story is hitting all sorts of exterior checkboxes, but the backyard is really in a league of its own.
Landscaped, fenced and FLAT are harder to find in this part of the ‘hood, but please peruse that custom built pergola. Classy, cool, and a cozy! Perfect spot to impress your friends at your annual summer soiree. Daiquiris anyone?
The interior is blossoming with many of the latest home design must haves. For starters, the kitchen, family and living room are planted right next to each other for maximum flow, and feature white cabinets, gray-toned wood planked tile, and a gorgeous shiplap fireplace.
Upstairs finds 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and the laundry room, so keeping your eyes on your sprouts is easy. The seller also wanted us to mention the views from the master. You’ll see what they mean when you take in the bright light. Downstairs is a unfinished space is ready to bloom into your creative masterpiece.
Our advice: act fast or be left pushing up home searching daises.
