Every once in a while, I am tempted to slap the ‘Most Amazing House in the World’ label on a piece of real estate. But I’m usually able to stop myself before doing so. Let’s face it; there are a plethora of luxurious, exquisitely detailed, dressed-to-the-nines homes out there, and declaring one as the Shangri-La of Realty would just be unfair to everyone else. It would also require my immediate retraction of said label upon discovering the next amazing house. And pretty soon no one would trust my opinion.
Besides, ‘most amazing’ is really a matter of subjective, personal opinion. So while I won’t go so far as to say that this 3-bed, 4-bath piece of Art Deco-esque magnificence is ‘the best’, I will say that it comes pretty darn close.
Located in Park City, UT, the 4,840 square foot house has an abundance of beautifully designed features. The reason this house is so appealing arises from the interesting blend of Art Deco lines and modernity with Craftsman details, especially in the abundance of decorated glass. Check out the pattern on this semi-circular leaded glass window above the entry, or the gilded crossbeams of the living room (above). The absolutely gorgeous stained-glass pendant lamp and skylights are a personal favorite (below). Even the transom windows are detailed!
Another material used to great effect is wood, as seen in the large kitchen of this home (above). Here the mid-century Craftsman influence is felt more strongly in the solid, linear aesthetic. The window into the living room also has this interesting structure in it. I’m not sure if it serves any functional purpose (it reminds me of a vintage printing press), but I still love it.
A touch of whimsy is added to the dining room via the fanciful tulip chandeliers that hang over the table (above). In the great room, decorative floor-to-ceiling windows illuminate an elegant fireplace and this smart wet bar, neatly tucked underneath a slanting ceiling line.
Upstairs, a circular sub-theme introduces itself in the bedposts of the master suite, the mirrors in the master bathroom, even in the stained glass window that adorns the stairwell.
In true Park City style, this home has no shortage of sporting activities nearby. From the 1.5 acre property, take in unobstructed views of the nearby mountains which host hiking and trail biking in the summer and ski and snowboarding in the busy winter season. Inside the neighborhood, Utah’s top-rated golf course is accessible through the Glenwild Club.
