New amongst the old

Not everyone finds the answers to their dreams in a burnt-out old home on a small lot while walking the dogs but these two did.

And so it began, the thoughtful design of this two-story contemporary home. Located close to Liberty Park, local restaurants and shops. This custom built, metal clad home features radiant floor heating throughout, and a multi-zone ductless mini split system to keep things cool with low utility costs. Entertaining with style is easy in the smart kitchen with full glass Fleetwood sliding doors to the backyard. There is a walk-in pantry, solid surface countertops with a waterfall edge center island and separate Sub-Zero clear glass ice maker. Gas line plumbed to back of the house for your favorite grill. Upstairs you’ll find the light-filled master retreat with shower and soaking tub, masterfully installed herringbone pattern hardwood floors and open lounge area.

Building in a National Historic Districts such as this one, Liberty Wells, presents its share of challenges. Districts such as these are designated to protect and maintain the historic character of neighborhoods and cities. Proposed demolitions (aforementioned fire-damage) and exterior changes to individual landmarks and historic district properties are subject to local design review. We wholeheartedly favor the preservation of our existing historic homes and we enjoy the creative buildings that spring up out of the inevitable ruin of others.

There are great resources available at the Utah Division of State History for property owners looking for help with restoration and rehabilitation of historic property.
