Lovingly Restored Avenues Victorian Home

This quintessential Victorian home has been thoughtfully updated and meticulously maintained over the years. Originally built in 1891, it combines the warmth and flavor of the past with conveniences of the present. Warm, indirect lighting accent the texture and design of the sculptured, classically trimmed, brick exterior and the carefully groomed flower beds. Large stained glass window in front, etched leaded glass with street number "914" imbedded over the entryway, add class and elegance. As you step across the maple threshold you are met by a beautifully detailed two-story staircase featuring a British wool runner angling up to the second floor. You are met with a vision of a detail-rich living room; beautifully finished tigerwood floors accented with perfectly preserved brass heat register covers; antique original brass hardware on the doors; warm, period-evoking chandeliers and antique light fixture – and you are still standing, stunned, in the entryway. A feeling of elegance, yet familial comfortability, pervades. 12" on-the-curve crown molding – beautifully detailed 6" door casings – 9" carved baseboards – restored details of wood and brass. There is a classic look and feel of this quality built home, maintained and updated, with exquisite attention to detail. The kitchen is a wonderful combination of antique charm and modern convenience. Beautifully appointed white cabinets, granite countertops, and stainless Bosch appliances create a kitchen that invites chocolate chip cookies and thanksgiving turkey. Butter smooth marble adorns the walls of the main and guest bathrooms. Spacious sundrenched king size bedrooms. The south facing, show stopping, carpeted luxury sun room with skylights, twin ceiling fans, cozy gas fireplace, overlooks the parklike grounds in the back. Double French doors open onto the redwood deck overlooking a manicured back lawn perfect for croquet and grandchildren. Drip flower beds and garden festooned with flowers, established plants, shading and fruit trees. Scalloped shakes on the face of the upper porch adorn this home. Enjoy a cool summer evening on the quaint balcony as you greet neighbors walking by. This elegant home is minutes away from Memory Grove Park and the Shoreline Trail and equally close to City Creek shopping center, down town restaurants, coffee shops and all the amenities of downtown living, while still maintaining a quiet neighborhood air. Though truly historical, this home isn't on the Utah registry. This allows you greater freedom in customizing this home to your own taste and comfort. Transform the sleeping porch above the sunroom into a quiet, secluded office with skylights and a calming overview of the lush backyard garden. Great basement storage and you can build in the back of this grand lot a new garage with apartment.

About The Area

This was Salt Lake City’s first neighborhood, established in the 1850s. It sits above Salt Lake City’s downtown area, giving you the feel of being above it all, while still in the middle of everything. Homes are nestled on the sides of the foothills to the north of the city. Residents tend to be politically progressive. Homes have a well-tended, “artsy” feel. The Avenues is the home of many professionals in Salt Lake who want a short commute to downtown, the University of Utah or the capitol. That vibe meshes nicely with the older, Victorian architecture of the homes you will find here. Memory Grove and City Creek Canyon are popular areas for hiking and outdoor recreation.
