Don't miss virtual walkthough and aerial drone footage. This home in Emigration Canyon was designed by Fred Babcock. Fred is now retired, but is known for many high-end houses in Utah, including Mitt Romney's home in Deer Valley. Fred designed the original campus for Huntsman Cancer Institute. Paulsen Construction was the builder, with Craig Paulsen as the principal of that company. Paulsen and Babcock worked together on one of the reconstructed buildings at This Is The Place Park, and Fred suggested Craig to build this house. The cement work was all done by Paulsen's crew and included deep foundation walls, with slab on grade heated floors. Harris Dudley Plumbing and Heating did the floor heating system, that is also designed to circulate through the chiller behind the house for summer cooling. The window system is a commercial storefront window system that has views uphill to the Emigration Oak's common property above our 15 acres to the North, and south to the top of the Canyons ski area. The house floor is at 6200' above sea level. The driveway is heated for winter snow removal. Landscaping is primarily native plants. The house is built around a steel frame that includes both the main floor and the upstairs rooms. In 2018 solar panels were installed on the first level roofs. The electrical net metering bill is $10.99 a month if snow doesn't accumulate on the roof. Limestone floors and fireplace add warmth to the contemporary look of the house. The three bay garage includes a long bay for boat storage, and the mechanical room as well as the Control 4 home automation system is accessed through the garage which is attached and heated. About ten years ago, major upgrades were made to the home. The original can lighting was removed and replaced by M16 lights. At the time they were halogen, but now bulbs are being replaced as needed by M16 LEDs. The TV system has a Dish network dish, and the broadband has a high-speed internet receiver on the top roof. The top floor, where one room was home office has an electric air conditioning system, but it has seldom been used. All the developed land in this little neighborhood is developed. The four houses are all that will ever exist there. The land to the west is owned by Utah Open Lands, and the land from the north to the top of the ridge is either common property to the Oak's or Salt Lake City watershed.
