This charming three-bedroom, three-bathroom Tollgate Canyon log cabin with breathtaking views is the stuff of cherished childhood (and yet to be realized) adult dreams.
Tollgate Canyon is a well-kept secret, and a zippy 10-minute drive north-east of Park City, Utah – renowned for World-class dining, wining, shopping, skiing and snowboarding and the annual Sundance Film Festival. The private community’s residents are warm, welcoming and ever so helpful.
Occupying 2163 square feet on a picturesque, one-acre Aspen-laden lot, the cabin enjoys tranquil wetlands, including a trout-stocked pond surrounding two sides – safeguarding your privacy and land, as homes cannot be constructed around the pond.
Step inside and appreciate the splendor and craftsmanship of the stunning floors, cathedral ceilings, timberwork and the grand and mighty tree trunk that serves as the cabin’s primary support beam. Venture out onto the deck that wrap arounds the cabin like a gigantic timber-clad hug. You’ll instantly feel at ease as your lungs fill with pristine air.
Note the log cabin’s open layout with a bedroom and bathroom on each level for accessibility and retreat, inviting living areas, large kitchen, generously sized laundry and a corner wood burning hearth.
The spacious, country-style kitchen has modern touches including stainless steel, ample storage and a gleaming granite countertop. Meal prep will be a welcomed chore as you gaze out at the serene, mountainous view.
The master bedroom is a wonderful haven with French doors leading out onto a private deck boasting an awe-inspiring panorama. Quality, sliding screen doors keep any bugs at bay so you can enjoy that revitalizing, alpine air 24/7, while the roomy, walk-in robe offers plenty of storage.
Fuel can be an issue when you’re out in the woods but not at this home. There’s HVAC, a wood stove and an onsite propane tank to provide ample and reliable heating. Toys and vehicles alike need to be appropriately housed in mountainous country and this home boasts an attached two-car garage plus a detached toy garage for all of your gear – be that ATVs, skis, sleds or snowmobiles.
Ideally situated at the top of Tollgate Canyon Road, curving onto Arapaho Drive, the log cabin’s positioning capitalizes on proximity to major roads, minus the noise or traffic. Accessibility won’t be an issue as the cabin features high on the winter priority plow route, meaning that you can happily live here all year round! When you do need to venture downtown to Salt Lake City, you’ll relish the 40-minute scenic drive as you cruise from 8,000 feet down to just above 4000 above sea level.
This home offers so much of Mother’s Nature sublime bounty – enjoy exploring and hiking the area, marveling at the resident wildlife – deer, moose and even porcupines! The current owner’s family beckons which means ‘Mother Goose’ must leave her adorable nest.
