Even if you’re not training for the Olympics or the X Games, you may be in luck if you’re searching for a luxurious yet rustic western residence to support your active lifestyle (skiers, snowboarders and Wild West lovers—this means you).
On Saturday, November 15th, 3468 Crest Court West—an 11,575-square-foot home in the exclusive Deer Crest Estates gated community within the Deer Valley Resort in Park City, Utah—will go up for auction to the highest bidder.
Registration begins Saturday at 9:00 am for the house—offered by DeCaro Luxury Real Estate Auctions—and bidding will commence at 11:00 am at the property. With no reserve price, it’s a great opportunity to score a deal of a lifetime—which is why it’s dubbed the “Absolute Auction.”
This eight-bedroom, 12-bathroom estate rests atop the highest point of Deer Crest Estates (Deer Valley Resort’s most exclusive enclave) with panoramic views of both Jordanelle Reservoir and Bald Mountain. The ski-in-ski-out residence at 3468 Crest Court West is also one of only six luxury homes (out of 126 lots) with direct access to 11 Deer Valley ski runs, Snow Park and Deer Crest Gondola, and Mountaineer high-speed quad. It was previously for sale by Berkshire Hathaway Home Services for $13.25 million.
The fully-furnished premier residence offers what we’d expect of life in the rugged Rocky Mountain range—Alder wood double doors, massive wood and stone finishes, huge floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows, super high ceilings anchored by fans, granite floors and countertops in the kitchen, six natural stone fireplaces (two outdoors), a dry sauna, a steam room, a massage room, an exercise room, a home theater, a library, and (dare we say again) lots and lots of carved wood—chairs, tables, benches, bookcases, beams, columns, railings, ceilings, mantels, floors, everywhere!
The handcrafted finishes feature antique glazed Venetian paint throughout the interior. The kitchen has a six-burner gas stove, stainless steel stacked double ovens, a breakfast room, and an adjacent semi-formal dining room. The home’s two master bedrooms boast large walk-in closets and en suite bathrooms with his-and-hers vanity sinks and marble soaking tubs. The largest master suite features a bedroom fireplace and a private deck with an outdoor fire pit. The estate also showcases multiple heated decks and patios, a three-level elevator, and a secluded, heated driveway that leads to a large motor court and an oversized three-car garage.
Built in 2001, the one-acre home also has plenty of room to store skis and boots—whether they are ski boots, snow boots, or cowboy boots. Oh yeah, 3468 Crest Court West also provides plenty of snow—approximately 350 inches of snowfall at the area resorts each winter. So bundle up after paying a bundle for this estate.
Deer Valley is widely considered one of the top ski resorts in North America. Park City—its companion city of approximately 8,000 people—is a popular destination 32 miles southeast of Salt Lake City. It’s home of the United States Ski Team and Academy Award winner Robert Redford’s Sundance Film Festival. Park City is a magnet for daring young skiers and snowboarders who train there to become champions —including countless Olympic gold medalists.
According to Park City Tourism statistics, the three area resorts (Deer Valley, Park City and Canyons) generate approximately $530 million in annual revenue as a tourist hot spot. Among the area’s famous residents is Olympic gold medal skier Ted Ligety, sportscaster Jim Nantz, and former governor and presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who brought the 2002 Winter Olympics to the area. The Park City and Deer Valley ski resorts hosted ski and snowboarding events for the 2002 winter games.
The winning bidder for the Deer Crest Estates residence will have plenty of company during ski season; however, he or she will also be first in line on the slopes. First things first—before using legs to ski, the winning bidder must raise a successful arm at auction.
Final previews for the Absolute Auction are Friday, November 14th (the day before the auction) at 3468 Crest Court West, from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. Private appointments are also available by calling the DeCaro Offices at 800-332-3767.
