The first thing you notice about this property is the view. There might be one or two in the valley that are equal, but there are certainly none that are better. This vantage on a hilltop between Old Snowbasin Road and Trappers Loops offers a panoramic of the Ogden Valley. Snowbasin to the south-southwest, Skyline, Ben Lomond, North Fork, Powder Mountain, Middle Fork, Monte Cristo, the Monastery, Huntsville, Eden, Liberty and Pineview Reservoir are all visible from this perch. The scene changes with the seasons—from white winter wonderland, to lush greens surrounding the blue lake, to an explosion of color as the local aspens, oaks and maples change colors.
You can watch the sunrise and the sunset from the wrap around deck, which includes a built in natural gas grill. The stunning views are also welcomed inside through several large picture windows, predominantly facing north to of course accentuate valley vistas, but also to keep the house from getting overheated in the summer months. Speaking of summer, the home sits at 5,500 feet, just over 1,500 feet above the valley floor, which also helps cool things down during the dog days.
Once inside the home, attention shifts to this home’s elegant finishes. A crystal chandelier that once adorned a British cruise ship greets visitors. The white marble kitchen counters and white walls give the kitchen area a spacious feel. Yet both mesh perfectly with the otherwise Western and mountain modern stylings, including walnut colored beams and window frames, wood floors throughout, an antler chandelier over the main sitting area, and three gas fireplaces.
The upper level features a vast open floor plan, an office with views of the Monte Cristo range, a laundry/utility room, the master bedroom, and access to the three-car garage. The garage is highlighted by an elegant chipped-stone floor and ample space for gear storage in addition to three vehicles. The master offers a large walk-in closet and an over-size marble-lined tub with views of the eastern half of the Ogden valley.
An elevator or short stairway accesses the lower level, which provides a separate living area. Four guest bedrooms, each with its own en suite bathroom, are ideal for house guests. In all, the house has 5 full bathrooms, and 2 half-baths. The lower level also has a full kitchen, a large sitting area with a gas fireplace, and its own laundry. There is ample storage in the laundry/utility room, as well as under the staircase. This level also accesses a large flagstone patio, perfect for entertaining or just relaxing in the spring, summer and fall.
Designed by architect Mark Bates with input from the original owners, and built by Big Canyon Homes, this 6,000 square foot home is nestled inconspicuously into the hillside. Reclaimed wood siding was sourced from Wyoming snow fences, and is accentuated with exquisite stone work, especially below the winter snowline.
The home sits at the end of the Hawkins Creek development, a tight-knit gated community of luxury homes overlooking the valley. Abutting undeveloped open space to the east, this property is occasionally shared with wildlife of multiple varieties, including moose and deer. There are hiking trails in the development. Access to the recreation trails in the Wheeler Basin (Art Nord trailhead), and to the reservoir are both just a short drive away. Snowbasin, Powder Mountain and all the recreational amenities of the Ogden Valley are right at hand.
Located in the Weber School District, this property is served by Valley Elementary, Snowcrest Jr. High and Weber High School. There are also numerous private and charter school options in the county, including DaVinci Academy and St. Joseph High School.
