A remarkably remodeled home, scenic waterfront property, modern-meets-mountain design and a landscape to drool over—it’s no wonder we can’t get our fill of this Park City family home featured in our summer issue. Good news: We have more to share of the dynamic dwelling and spectacular setting, and it’s right here. Enjoy the tour!
Surrounded by mountain views, Jason and Allison Dittmer’s remodeled family home sits on Lake Mary Michael, a 17-acre man-made lake fed from mountain runoff near The Canyons Resort in Park City.
As seen from a second-level interior bridge, the home’s entry is defined by a wall of windows and a wide, pivoting barnwood door.
The open living and dining areas are separated by a double-sided fireplace finished in cementitious plaster.
The main level’s kitchen, dining and living areas open to each other, and all overlook the back patio areas and lake beyond. Barnwood walls visually connect the living area to the adjoining staircase.
Light and lake views flood the at-ease living room, where a barnwood-clad wall and plastered fireplace ground the room’s laid-back décor.
A span of windows folds back to open the kitchen space to an outdoor counter and broad patios that offer plenty of space for taking the party outdoors.
The back of the home captures breathtaking views of the shimmering lake and Park City mountains throughout the seasons.
The kitchen’s bank of bi-fold windows opens to barstools lined for easy-to-serve dining. Nearby, a built-in grill fosters the home’s indoor/outdoor livability.
“We used materials that get better with age and deliberately blur the inside and outside,” says Sarah Broughton, architect. A barnwood-clad exterior wall features a cutout lined in steel. Beyond, raised garden boxes overflow with sunflowers and a fall’s harvest of vegetables.
The home’s patios stretch to the beach. Landscape designer Jayson King divided the patio into multiple living areas, including a lounge and, steps away, benches that flank a raised fire feature.
Sun streams though and exterior staircase leading from the patios to a second-level deck.
As seen from the lake, the waterfront home orients to water views and has expansive living areas easily accessed from the interior. “We wanted lake-facing doors to be able to stay open, so people can go in and out easily,” says homeowner Allison Dittmer.
