Two-bedroom Victorian home in Salt Lake City near popular ski resorts
We would consider longer than one month if trade is outside the U.S.
We retired here in 2007 and purchased this Victorian home (built in 1902) which had been completely remodeled and redecorated. We were immediately attracted to its charm due to the very high ceilings, hardwood flooring, large windows, sunny southern exposure, and unusual little nooks upstairs and down. Besides the living room, dining room, and kitchen downstairs, there is also a comfortable office equipped with high speed cable internet, two bathrooms, and a utility room which was added during the remodel. A steep, narrow staircase (typical of homes of this vintage) leads upstairs where both bedrooms and a third bathroom are located. Both bedrooms contain double beds. The master bedroom suite includes a small children's nook with a single bed.
Salt Lake City brims with history, art, culture, entertainment and recreation - all in a beautiful location at the foot of Utah's Wasatch Mountains. Salt Lake combines the amenities of a large metro area with the opportunity to take advantage of year round outdoor recreation within minutes in every direction. An attractive, safe, and growing city, Salt Lake offers unequaled views, a thriving economy, exciting nightlife, remarkable history, the warm hospitality of a small western town, and *The Greatest Snow on Earth, TM*. Salt Lake is an incredible destination for patrons of the performing arts with: Ballet West, Utah Opera Company, Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company, Repertory Dance Theatre, Mormon Tabernacle Choir, The Utah Symphony. Numerous theater groups and over twenty art galleries are within minutes of Salt Lake's downtown.
We have enjoyed twelve home exchanges, our proximity to the ski resorts and our convenient location with easy walking access to the Sugar House commercial area being the two main draws. Bus and streetcar transportation to downtown and the university is just a half block away. To get to the five nearby ski resorts, drive two blocks to Interstate 80 and you're there in less than 30 minutes. If you want to ski at Park City, Deer Valley, or Sundance near Provo, the drive is about 40 minutes. While enjoying a ski vacation, you also have access to all the art and cultural resources in Salt Lake City. A large chain grocery store, an aquatic center and park, a city golf course, three work-out gyms, restaurants, shopping, a library, and post office are all within an easy walking distance.
Forest Dale Golf Club and Course is located just two blocks from our home. The course was built in 1905 as the Salt Lake Country Club and holds the distinction of being the oldest golf course in Utah. It is a challenging 9-hole golf course with several small, original table-top greens, Forest Dale Golf Club plays from 2,200 to 3,100 yards and places a premium on accuracy. The Forest Dale clubhouse remains a landmark in Salt Lake City and has been placed on the Utah Historical Register. Many other golf courses are located in the Salt Lake City area as well.
