Rare Waterfront Ski-in ski-out Park City Home

Posted by Erik Asarian on Friday, November 4th, 2016 at 4:48pm.

 The Least Expensive Home in The Colony-By a Million Dollars!!

There is indeed a treasure at the end of the rainbow...   

Our seller clients love The Colony so much, they purchased a second larger lot higher up the hill and they're designing their dream home.  

Some in The Colony might consider this home to be a "guest home" because you have plenty of room on the 2+ acre property to build a main home and/or an accessory building in the meadow overlooking the lakes, though there is no requirement to build anything else in the future.

Bigger Isn't Always Better...

Not all families want a gargantuan vacation home.  Many will find this ~4300 square foot 3 Bedroom home (plus an additional bunk-room with SIX bunks serviced by TWO Bathrooms) just perfect for a part-time residence.  The home was completed in 2012 and has been gently and lovingly occupied part time since then. The home looks and feels brand new and is being offered for sale fully furnished and accessorized for $4.75M.  Just bring your skis, snowboards, and your tooth brushes!

Waterfront Home in Park City, Utah...On A Ski Hill???

One of the most unique facets of this Colony ski home is the prime waterfront location, which is almost unheard of in ski in ski out communities.  

The Colony developer created a series of small lakes and waterfalls in this phase of the Colony which has created a haven for wildlife and allows the very few owners with direct access to these lakes a peaceful sanctuary to enjoy the beauty of the Wasatch Mountains.  It's amazing how much the sights and sounds of running water can transform a beautiful setting like this into a veritable Heaven on Earth.

Prime Location Near New Quicksilver Gondola at Park City Resort

What differentiates some Colony homes from others?  Easy ski access.  The location of the home site near the base of the Quicksilver Gondola means quick and easy access to skiing either side of the largest ski area in the United States.  Skiers of all abilities can easily ski into and out of this prime residence without navigating treacherous black diamond runs and moguls.  

Wake up, click into your skis/boards, and silently swoosh under the bridge to the bottom of the quicksilver Gondola to head towards Park City.  Or, ski down towards Canyons Village and the Dreamcatcher lift, where you can pound in some heart-pumping powder laps before the general public can make their way this far up the mountain to this powder paradise!

Right Across the Street From The Colony Owners Private Yurt

The Colony owners Yurt (rumored to be the site of a future larger lodge) is located across the street, an easy walk in any season.  The yurt--a convenient warming hut--is a private amenity exclusively for Colony owners & guests to socialize with other neighbors and enjoy food & beverages without the hassle of standing in line at the resort's public eateries.

Seductive Outdoor Living Areas

When you live in the mountains, you'll find yourself trying to maximize your interaction with the peaceful natural setting.  This home has multiple outdoor living areas, with sophisticated snow melt systems to allow enjoyment of the abundance of nature in any season.  

A Covered Deck Looks Out Into The Forest in The Colony

A sunken hot tub--overlooking the pond and recirculating water feature--is set among the tranquility and privacy of a splendid aspen forest.  It beckons you for soaking after a day of skiing or hiking around your home.

Refined Mountain Architecture in The Colony

This home is a well designed blend of mountain and modern. Clean lines with just the right amount of wood timbers and stone give this home a timeless mountain appeal.

Rich Woods & Natural Stone Accents Lend an Organic & Authentic Feel...

The home was thoughtfully designed and climate zoned to allow the owners to use just the main level when they are in residence by themselves, and to utilize the upper and lower levels when family and guests visit.  The vaulted ceilings of the great room and south facing windows capture the views out over the lakes into the aspen forest beyond.

Kitchen is The Focal Point of The Main Level in This Home For Sale In The Colony

The main level boasts a beautiful kitchen that is open to the living and dining spaces.  When you're in the kitchen, you have open sight lines and it's easy to visit with your friends and family in the great room, or the dining room.

Lower Level Has Its Own Party Kitchen, Pool Table, and TV Lounge

When you need the additional space, descend to the open and inviting lower level.  The lower level is a large living area that allows large groups of your friends, family, and associates to gather comfortably. The wet bar is actually a fully-outfitted second kitchen that makes entertaining a breeze. There are two full bathrooms to accommodate guests who get to sleep in the bunk area (not included in the 3 bedroom count) this is far and away the kid’s favorite spot!

Sweeping Mountain Views From The Upstairs in This Colony Home

The upper level features two generous en-suite guest bedrooms.  One of these bedrooms includes a large sitting nook that's perfect for gazing out into the forest or watching the sunset over the Wasatch ridgeline to the West (see photo below). There's even an airy open loft room with a sleeper sofa if you have additional guests.  So don't be fooled by the 3 bedrooms--the home has flexible areas that can dramatically expand to accommodate your larger groups of guests when necessary.

In a neighborhood where other homes for sale range from approximately $6 million to over $18 million, this represents a unique opportunity to own a completely turn key residence in one of the best locations in all of the Colony.

The Colony Remains Park City's Hottest Luxury Neighborhood

Whereas many of the neighborhoods in Deer Valley's most prestigious neighborhoods have been quiet on the sales front in 2016, eighteen Colony homes have already pended/sold 2016 YTD!  Even since Vail merged Park City and Canyons Resorts with $50M in improvements for the 2014/15 ski season, dozens of homes and building lots in The Colony have sold.  

Not long ago, it might have been possible to purchase a lot and build a luxurious home for less than the price of the resale homes on the market.  No longer is that the case...as entry level lot prices have doubled over the past 24 months.
