This stately home was built in the 1920s for Utah’s Makoff department store family. Every detail of this home was perfectly handcrafted to the highest standards and has been carefully maintained over the years. When you walk in the front door, you are welcomed by the two-story grand entry, with a decadent mahogany staircase. The entry radiates with natural light from a 20 ft south-facing window.
The kitchen is massive and was renovated in 2016 blending seamlessly with the original architecture. There is a 20 ft island with plenty of prep space and a six-burner gas range. The hood vents to the outside and illuminates the range with pristine clarity.
There is a quaint dining nook, and adjacent cozy sitting area for relaxing in front of the TV or enjoying the fireplace. The formal dining room has an open and light ambiance that is perfect for entertaining guests. With windows opening the space to the beautiful outdoors, a glorious chandelier centerpiece, and a space that is large enough to host several families at once, holidays and special occasions will feel like a magical escape.
The expansive master suite has natural light and soaring ceilings, hardwood floors, and a luxurious gas fireplace. The en-suite has a soaking tub, separate water closet, and large shower. The white herringbone heated marble floors in the walk-in dressing room.
The current owners loved the richness of this home’s history and decided to preserve the character while bringing it into the 21st century. All the plumbing, electrical, bathrooms, and kitchens, HVAC are brand new, some rooms.
All the landscaping, lighting and gardens were replanted and improved. A koi pond and water feature were also added. This five-bedroom home is listed for $2.5 million with Windermere Real Estate -Utah, an affiliate of Luxury Portfolio International®.
