Overlooking Park City, Utah, the setting of the Sundance Film Festival and 2002 Olympics, a magnificent home has risen that will immediately transcend all others and define the luxuries of casual slopeside living.
Deerfield Estate is a one-of-a-kind home for the most discriminating owner. With three distinct levels overlooking the vast Jordanelle Reservoir, Bald Mountain, and Park City, Deerfield Estate boasts a dazzling array of amenities more commonly found in the most highly-appointed residences of the Hamptons, Montecito and Monte Carlo.
As soon as you pass through the custom-designed entry gates you suddenly realize you have entered another world, a world where a magnificent home that is so finely detailed inside and out transcends your wildest imagination. The attention to detail is immediately apparent. Large hand-crafted stone pillars and a wrought iron gate greet guests with just a touch of formality while simultaneously inviting them in to enjoy the luxuries hidden within the estate.
Driving up the heated, hand-troweled designer driveway, one can’t help but behold and become mesmerized at the architectural wonder that was envisioned on paper over five years ago and refined to its present day splendor.
The driveway ends almost 1000’ from the main gate, but this is only the beginning of your journey where you enter an expansive and secluded auto court with enough parking for a well-attended party of family, friends, or business associates. Not surprisingly, the views alone from the driveway and court surpass any home views you have ever witnessed. The warm radiant heat of the auto court comfortably houses ten automobiles and five snowmobiles including a heated walkway leading to a covered terracotta entry that casually welcomes all to partake in the year-round activities.
Above the auto court on the lower level are three large ensuite bedrooms, a family room with a lounge area and two fireplaces, huge classic home theater, and wine cellar. And if skiing isn’t on today’s to-do list, a fitness center with full bath, steam room, and sauna will undoubtedly get the heart pumping.
As an added one-of-a-kind exclusive amenity, a wave-jet pool awaits swimmers of all skill levels. The first bedroom includes a Tudor-style reproduction coal burning stove, an early 19th century fireplace mantel, and a vanity fashioned after an English-style antique desk.
The most prominent features in the family room are its magnificent wood surround and distressed beamed ceiling. The lounge area showcases a native-stone fireplace, curved bar with built-in refrigerator, dishwasher and freezer, hickory cabinets, pool table, and terracotta tile with heraldic tile inserts. The home theater is modeled after a Roman amphitheater with classically distressed bronzed columns and coffered-beamed ceiling. An 18th century French cast-iron door leads to a gothic-style, built-in wine room with intricate medieval carvings.
The main living level has a dramatic French limestone foyer entry with massive stone-based columns. Standing here one is overtaken by a jaw-dropping 360° view of the Jordanelle at your feet, the endless pines stretching across Bald Mountain, and Park City’s mountainous peaks and valleys. The main house is serviced by a hotel-sized elevator while the master suite is serviced by its own private elevator.
The great room area is comprised of a living and dining room, gourmet kitchen and breakfast area, and an adjacent hearth room all of which reflect rustic old-world charm. A home office and three bedrooms suites on the main level each possess their own unique panorama of the unspoiled countryside. A ski prep room with fireplace and two powder rooms are also located on this level. The hotel-sized main elevator from the garage comes up near the kitchen where sumptuous dining and entertaining will undoubtedly take place.
The main floor’s fireplace is surrounded by a limestone mantel imported from an old Parisian estate complete with wrought-iron brackets, oversized lanterns, hand-carved corbels from an old Brooklyn mansion, and an antique mirror from The New York Flat-Iron Building.
The ceiling trusses were made from salvaged lumber from the Union-Pacific Railroad. The kitchen cabinets are constructed of white pine and cherry woods reminiscent of the finest Northern European furniture. Hardwood floors were generously hand-picked and fitted onsite. The charming custom details are evident throughout from the cast-iron fireplace surround to the built-in breakfast nook with its quaint French farm table.
The study is accessed through nine-foot, custom French doors fashioned from reclaimed teak wood. This room also features wainscoting, pecan and hickory hardwood floors, a French antique limestone mantel, and a suspended stained-glass ceiling salvaged from a church designed by the world-renown Rudy Brothers.
The ski-prep room features a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, built-in seating, ski lockers and hidden flat-screen TV. One step beyond your door onto the heated walkway will bring you seconds closer to the outdoor hot tub with built-in surround-sound and room enough for the entire family. It is also here where one can access the world’s first private gondola a mere fifty feet from the ski prep room.
To access the uppermost level, where the master suite reigns, one either ascends the solid Douglas fir staircase leading to a curved balcony overlooking the entire entry and great room living spaces below, or rides the private elevator located in the foyer. Upon entering the suite one is greeted by the extensive detail reflected in the soaring vaulted ceilings with open-beam construction.
To your right there is a charming Ingle Nook with a cozy fireplace and built-in seating that acts as an extension to the bedroom.
The suite’s millwork was acquired from seven different mills with imported French hardware. Finally, a highly-appointed master bath and walk-in closet pamper those who are lucky enough to call Deerfield Estate home. The master suite possesses the highest expansive views of the natural outdoor beauty and wonders of the Deer Valley and Deer Crest Resort and back to the north to the celebrity of Park City.
Both the lower and main levels have large decks for outdoor living with a fire pit centrally located directly off the family room on the lower level.
All decks are interconnected with stairs or walkways and are heated for year-round use. From these decks one can truly admire the time, effort, and passion that went into the numerous exterior details that make this home unique including the timber-cut siding which reveals the natural bark of its white pine roots, rounded balconies with copper fascia, gutters and downspouts.
As you can see no detail was left to chance. So is it any wonder that world-renown Nantucket Island architect Lyman Perry exclaimed, “This is the most magnificent home and homesite I have ever seen.”?
Deerfield Estate truly blends indoor and outdoor living, a simple and yet refined atmosphere, and an exciting as well as tranquil way of life all at the same time. To appreciate its enduring wonder, one only needs to visit once. And chances are… you may never leave.
