A $7 Million Contemporary Retreat on Park City’s Main Street – Robb Report
With its world-class ski slopes and annual celebrity-crazed film festival, Park City, Utah has never been short of glitz or glamour, especially when it comes to luxury real estate. . But typically, the area’s most sought-after homes are located near those coveted runways, not in bustling downtown Park City, where stars and paparazzi mingle each January during festival season. That’s why a new list with a decidedly modern design that has just hit the market looks so unique and compelling.
The home is a stunning three-bedroom, four-bathroom downtown home spread over just under 3,000 square feet and located directly on Park City’s historic Main Street, within walking distance of Sundance and the Kimball Art Center. Priced at $7 million, the home marks a major price-per-square-foot record for a downtown home: about $2,360 per square foot. The figure reflects a spike in Park City prices, which soared about 40% between August 2021 and August 2022, according to Redfin, and now average $1.75 million per home. The price also reflects the home’s unique location. “There are only a handful of single-family homes on Main Street, and they rarely come up for sale, and when they do, they’re older or maybe renovated, but not new construction,” says Paul Benson, agent of Engels & Völkers Park City. , which has the list.
The property is a sleek, modern take on a traditional wooden ski lodge loaded with both aesthetic flourishes and high-tech magic. Located directly on a charming backyard cove, the home was designed by Orange County interiors specialist Ray Langhammer, a veteran of many high-end properties in the American West. The home was envisioned “like a cabin in the American West with the warmth and minimalist look of a St. Moritz home, while maintaining the look of historic Park City mining town,” Benson said. . “The floor plan was designed as an ideal space for entertaining and takes advantage of the views as well as the stream running through the backyard. There is a sense of seamless indoor-outdoor living, while simultaneously providing luxury and privacy. for each room.
Crafted primarily from reclaimed Montana wood panels on the exterior, the home is as sturdy as it is eye-catching, with solid concrete walls throughout, powder-coated aluminum siding, and an ultra-durable aluminum-clad zinc roof. environmentally friendly shrubs. Spread over four floors, the house’s master suite takes up the entire first floor and includes a bedroom, bathroom, walk-in closet and a patio, accessed by a jeweled staircase, which overlooks this creek. The patio offers its own fireplace as well as a soothing hot tub from Colorado-based Diamond Spas.
Further on the upper level is the oversized great room, which connects to a chef-style kitchen with Gagganau and Miele appliances. The dining room is positioned just beyond and includes its own terrace with yet another large fireplace and bar-b-eque island. Throughout the home, “cabinets were designed like a boat, which every square inch used to optimize storage with clean lines,” says Benson. “The owner has thought of every detail more than twice.”
The property also includes a large media room with built-in fridge as well as a next-gen home audio system, numerous security cameras, a whole house power generator (for those rare power outages) and even a Tesla Powerwall for the battery. back-up to keep the house running even in the worst weather conditions. “The house is completely unmanaged for people who use it as a second home,” Benson says. “It offers the same exterior security camera company used at the Deer Valley Montage.”
With its unique location and competitive price, Benson sees the buyer of this home as someone who enjoys hitting the slopes, but is also looking for the best of city living right on their doorstep. “The buyer of this home is someone who wants to be in the middle . . .and feel the energy . . .and the action in Park City and Historic Main Street,” Benson explains. who enjoys walking to their favorite restaurants, but also has a place to relax in their own home, listening to the stream in the backyard.”
