This storybook-cottage designed by Georgius Cannon and restored by Max Smith is undeniably the most enchanting and charming residence in the Avenues. Live a fairytale existence in this home located at the doorstep of Downtown Salt Lake City that takes full advantage of the views of the State Capitol and downtown. Architectural points of interest include the whimsical front door's stucco relief of the owls in the flowering vines, the notable raked stucco 2' thick walls and ceiling, the rich quarter sawn oak flooring, large paned leaded glass windows, arched doorways, and the extraordinary barrel ceilings in the main living areas and the master suite. Two focal points in the open living room and dining areas are the dramatic floor to ceiling crafted, wood wall unit and the large fireplace hearth. The bright and cheerful eat-in gourmet kitchen has timbered beamed ceilings and a wall tiled with imported tiles from a monastery in France. The main level includes a master suite, a guest suite and a den that opens to the stone deck designed with an automatic retractable awning to enjoy views of the cityscape and the legendary western sunsets. Additional bedroom suites are housed on the second level. The walkout lower level has a large family room, 5th bedroom suite, fitness room, laundry and mudroom room off the deep, attached 2-car garage. The fully enclosed property cascades down the gentle hillside slope. The parklike grounds have stone patios interlaced with groundcover, flat, sunny and shaded lawn areas and a magical English garden outside the kitchen filled with flowering roses. Walking distance to Memory Grove, Downtown, City Creek Canyon and the State Capitol and a short drive to the University of Utah and the Salt Lake International airport.
