Because of the
location of the home, special planning was called required.
The home sits on a knoll in the community of Farmington. According
to the builder, the home was actually "bent'' some to
fit on the lot and to capture all of the available views.
The style of the home can best be described as European Cottage.
Stone and brick were intertwined to give the home an old look.
To accent the look, four-inch foam was then used as a platform
for stucco to give it an even older look. To make it even
more authentic, the chimney cap came from Europe and dates
back some 300 years. To stay with the theme, a couple of old
antique windows were placed over the entry, along with exposed
spruce beams. In the den there is a fireplace with wood that
was cut in such a way as to give it an old limestone look.
It has five bedrooms and five bathrooms and
a bonus room over the four-car garage. Most of the flooring
on the main level is slate with distressed wooden border.
In the master suite there is a very large walk-in closet and
in the master bath, along with the separate tub and shower,
a large vanity that runs down the sides of two walls. The
walls in the master suite are an antique-glazed look. The
fireplace in the main bedroom is brick and timbers.
There is a great room off the entry and
a family room off the dining nook. Both have large windows
and views of the Great Salt Lake below. In the basement there
is a second complete kitchen with distressed pine flooring,
a little cottage playhouse, with two entrances and more bedrooms.
There are two laundry rooms - one on the main and the second
on the lower level - and a Sports Court in the rear yard.
