Open House August 24th 10AM-Noon
Bread. Champagne. Sparkling Water. Cheese. The French have really got this high life figured out. La grande vie, they would say. Nestled away peacefully at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac overlooking the Maple Hollow corridor, this gorgeous home gives you just a hint of that haute French lifestyle. Living here means year-round views, fresh mountain air, quick access to world class outdoor recreation, and a vibrant and active HOA. The elevated days don’t stop at the doorstep; inside, the home’s floor plan is distinguished without being over done. You’ll immediately notice the fresh paint and carpet throughout so you can take that off your to-do list. The only painting you’ll do are landscapes en plein air. The kitchen, family room, and dining room are found at the back of the home with loads of windows to keep those views no more than a head turn away. We love the deck that’s just off the main floor-perfect for extending a dinner party outside, or a place to unwind after work. Upstairs you’ll find 3 bedrooms and loft (see also: kids play area or office.) The master retreat has double sinks, separate tub and shower, a romantic fireplace, and features some of the home’s most stunning and elevated views. Downstairs is large, wide open, and really feels like a lower level because of how bright and open it is. We’re glad the builder didn’t skimp out on windows or a walkout here, it rounds out the home nicely. Fantastic home and community with unbeatable views? Oui!
Amazon + Real Estate?
Amazon recently jumped into the real estate industry with a new partnership program called Turnkey. In a nutshell, you log into Amazon and use them to find a real estate agent. They’ve partnered with Realogy, which gathers a group of brokerages, and pairs you with a realtor. Then if you buy a home through the platform, you receive money back or discounts on Amazon products like smart home devices, or services like movers, home cleaners, or product installations.
Is there a catch? Well, the products and services offered are based off the home’s purchase price. But the biggest thing to note is that you can only use a Turnkey approved real estate agent. For now, this program is only available in select markets and Utah isn’t one of them, but we’re keeping our eyes on other markets where the program is live, in order to see how home buyers respond.
Amazon is a massive machine capable of driving millions of eyes to its services, so it will be interesting to see how Turnkey does and if/when it arrives in Utah. We always recommend finding a real estate agent that you personally feel confident with, so picking from their limited list might be an obstacle to pairing you with an agent who “gets” you. We believe full service agents—at least the good ones—are already providing great hookups to handymen and smart home devices, while also providing hyperlocal expertise, local and global marketing, and high touch customer service.

They say that “the clothes don’t make the (wo)man” and in real estate, we know that “the house doesn’t make the inhabitant.” So while we can’t guarantee that this house will make you a more relaxed and happy person, we kind of can’t see how you could help it. Just drive up to the curb and you’ll start to see why. From the street, you’ll notice multiple outdoor spaces to enjoy the SunCrest lifestyle. That wraparound porch is the perfect place to sip an aperol spritz or an old fashion lemonade. While we’re talking about the outside (it is summer, after all) let’s jump to the backyard right away. Situated on a nearly a quarter-acre, the flat, fully fenced property overlooks Lone Peak, Box Elder, and Mt. Timpanogos. The sellers have smartly maximized the space by adding a large concrete patio, hot tub, thriving veggie garden, and multiple spots to sit and soak up those views. We dare you not to unwind in your own mountain oasis. Inside, the main level entry is flanked by two separate rooms that flow effortlessly in either direction. Use them as a formal dining room, living room, office, or parlor-you get to decide what works for you. The kitchen dazzles with a 6-burner gas range, double ovens, stainless appliances, and granite counter tops and transitions beautifully to the dining and family room. We told you about those outdoor spaces you’ll see from the street, but seeing them from an elevated vantage point is really quite special. Pro tip: Start at the master. There are two separate spaces to take in those phemomenal views. We’re also quite taken by the romantic fireplace and sitting area. Two other large bedrooms and a full bathroom round out the second story. Downstairs was designed with form and function in mind. Our favorite is the wide open family room and wet bar, but you’ll be watching out for guests who might just overstay their welcome thanks to the large guest bedroom and spa-like bathroom. The house doesn’t make the inhabitant? Maybe. But all it takes for you to live that SunCrest life is to make this house your home.
