The sound of gentle mountain breezes rushing through the pines is all you hear in Sandy’s luxury gated community of Pepperwood Estates. With the soaring Wasatch Mountains as its immediate backdrop, the neighborhood, located along the East Bench of the Salt Lake Valley, feels worlds away from nearby urban centers.
Just off of Wasatch Boulevard, Pepperwood is only minutes away from Big and Little Cottonwood Canyon ski resorts and Park City’s entertainment destinations. Residents can enjoy easy access to world class outdoor activities within minutes of this magnificent home. Also nearby is Hidden Valley Country Club, which is a 27-hole private course, with a PGA staff, pool (with poolside concierge service), and 44,000-square-foot clubhouse.
The Tuscan-styled Pepperwood estate of 6 Bentbrook Lane was built in 2007 by renowned Tri-City Construction as though it were intended for the builder’s personal residence. High-end appliances were utilized, and the custom knotty alder woodwork throughout, including crown moldings and wood casement windows, was completed with the utmost detail.
Designed by JSA Architecture Planning Interiors, this luxurious home offers a unique blend of both formal and informal living spaces. The functional floorplan has been completed with the highest quality materials and craftsmanship. Two-story vaulted ceilings and large picture windows are tastefully utilized in the formal entrance and throughout the main level to provide a grand yet comfortable feel.
The heart of the home is the great room that includes the living room, kitchen and expansive breakfast nook with access to the deck. The kitchen features Wolf appliances including a gas range and double oven, granite counters, cut limestone backsplash, custom cabinetry and a pantry. The living room includes a gas fireplace, entertainment center and incredible mountain views.
The spacious main-level master suite features a gas fireplace, mountain views, and access to the deck. The dramatic ensuite bathroom includes dual sinks, granite countertops, a separate vanity, a Euro shower with double heads, a Jacuzzi tub with valley views and a large walk-in closet. Also on the main level is an executive home office, a powder room for guests, an extra-large laundry room with two washers and two dryers, and a secondary entryway with floor-to-ceiling cabinets and access to the garage.
Clerestory windows overlook the grand staircase which takes you to the landing on the second floor. Decorative wrought iron banisters offer views of the great room below. All three bedrooms on this level include en suite bathrooms, and there is a bonus room off the largest bedroom that could be used as a play room or nanny’s quarters.
The daylight lower level includes an entertainment room that walks out to a covered patio and landscaped yard. The spacious wet bar with dishwasher and built-in microwave could easily be upgraded to a second kitchen. Also downstairs is a second office, three more bedrooms – two of which include en suite bathrooms – a game room and a theater room with seven stadium-style reclining leather seats. The theater room includes a 145-inch screen with a Sony projector and surround-sound speakers. The lower level is large enough to accommodate long term guests comfortably.
Each of the eight bathrooms in the home feature unique Tuscan-inspired designs for the vanities and tub areas using marble, cut limestone and granite, as well as designer lighting, wood casement windows, and crown moldings.
The homeowners have also invested in the property by converting all the lighting to LED. In addition, they have added a five-zoned Nest thermostat for each of the home’s furnaces, a Vivant security system, and a state-of-the-art media system that is wired throughout the home, allowing viewers to seamlessly redirect a movie they were watching in one room to another. Music can also be distributed to speakers throughout the home for social gatherings and parties. The three-car garage with extra height and epoxy floors features a recently added Tesla plugin.
The home is uniquely angled to take advantage of the breathtaking mountain and valley views. It is situated on a .64-acre lot and is offset about 45 degrees from that of neighboring residences. The homeowner has also maintained the natural scrub oak foliage around the perimeter for added privacy. A wrought iron fence was added to encircle the backyard, complete with a gate for accessing a seasonal stream along the southern edge of the property.
Listed at $2,500,000 by Lynn Griese of Coldwell Banker The Salt Lake-Avenues office, this Tuscan-style luxury home is sure to impress any guests, while providing the best in utility and comfort.
