Comfortable Mountain Home in Durfee Creek
Surrounded by the beautiful scenery of Ben Lomond and Willard Peaks and the breathtaking Ogden Valley, this rustic yet elegant home sits secluded among the native oak, pines and aspen of Durfee Creek. A classic mountain home adorned with natural wood finishes on doors and trim. The main floor living, dining and kitchen area is the natural heart of the home, providing a comfortable gathering spot. It also features one of the most spectacular finishes, a historic solid oak wood floor repurposed from plantation buildings along the east coast dating back to the 1700s. The grand suite is fit for royalty and offers a spacious bathroom and a pair of his and hers closets to keep things nice and orderly.
Rising to the upper floor reveals a wide open great room loft with vaulted ceiling and dormer nooks perfect for a piano, desk or reading areas. Two large bedrooms bookend the loft area with a bathroom on one side. There are three more bedrooms located in the basement along with an exercise area, fourth bathroom and entertainment room wired for surround sound and built-in speaker system.
The three car garage faces a large courtyard surrounded by oak trees and stonework. A gentle stream flows through the property on the east of the home, providing a gentle sound of nature year round. The front of the lot has been landscaped such that snow and rain runoff also create a temporary soothing stream flowing through large boulders.
The Durfee Creek community sits elevated on the far north end of Ogden Valley, overlooking Pineview Reservoir and Huntsville Town in the distance, and the soaring peaks of the Wasatch mountain range much closer. With easy access to Snowbasin, Powder Mountain and Nordic Valley, this location is a skiers paradise! The renaissance recreational sports mecca of Ogden lies just a short 30-minute drive down the canyon, and offers a dining, shopping and a spirited nightlife.
