Wake up with a cup of coffee and watch the weather patterns over the Wasatch Mountain range. When you're ready to get out in whatever mother nature has in store - walk out your lower-level back door, hang a right and within moments you're in Lewis Park - a nature preserve - where trails meander for miles - snowshoe and cross-country in the winter - hike and bike in the summer. (Your 8 acres abuts Lewis Nature Conservancy, the Summit County preserved park on 130 acres. ) The 2.5 mile loop is a well-kept secret rewarding insiders with ski resort views rivaling anywhere in the area as well as beaver ponds, a creek, elk and peaceful bird watching.If a day of downhill is what you crave - first chair at Park City Mountain Resort or Deer Valley can be achieved in a 15-minute car ride. Kimball Junction with dining and shopping also less than 15 minutes away. During spring and fall herds of elk migrate through the property. It's not uncommon to watch a truly spectacular scene as hundreds move together across your land heading for even higher ground. When you walk in the front door of the house, it feels like a home - and you are immediately swept up in its warmth while also in awe of the views. Warm hard wood floors, high vaulted ceilings, and a large kitchen with a center island that opens to the hearth room. Warm up next to the fireplace, located in the nook off the kitchen, after an adventurous day in the crisp mountain air.Main floor living is complete with an owner's bedroom - with access to the expansive deck and a studio/office and separate den/library with floor to ceiling built in shelves. An elegantly tiled and renovated powder bath is just off the great room. In the owner's suite there is a beautifully renovated owners' bath with radiant floor heating, chic cabinetry and a large double shower. Nestle up in the upholstered window seat to take in the view. In this exquisite home there is a fabulous mother-in-law apartment.
