One of the interesting things about having lived some years over what qualifies as youth is seeing things concurrently in the present and in the past. I spent twenty years of my youth living in Park City as it transitioned from a mining town to a ski town, and some of the last remaining miners lived on Rossi Hill among a few of the ski crowd. It was a location with wildflowers in the summer setting the scene for a happy mountain lifestyle, and it was an easy walk to get to the mines for work or down to Main Street to the saloons. Fast forward to now with the introduction of Lilac Hill.
There are still a couple of original tiny, tattered and sagging homes standing on Rossi, but time has moved on. Fortunately, the new homes in a Rossi Hill enclave called Lilac Hill preserve portions of the old homes and retain the charm, while still offering comfortable modern living in 3,000 square feet that the miners would think was worthy of the silver barons that owned the mines. Today’s featured home is one of four completed by a Park City team: architecture by Elliott Workgroup; building from Aerie Construction, interiors by Natural Instincts. Nomad Soul staged the home, which is for sale furnished. The location remains convenient to Main Street’s happenings, and it is on the bus line to get to Deer Valley or the Park City Mountain resort. Happily, the wildflowers are still blooming.
From the entry, the main middle floor is an open planned space with an open ceiling and generous windows. We’re looking toward the fireplace, which warms the space from the corner.
Looking back to the kitchen, the soft light tones of the wood floor continue into the cabinetry. Black metal repeats in the window frames, range hood, and stairway.
And speaking of stairways, I have previously admitted that they are my photographic weakness; I can never resist photographing a beautiful flight of stairs. I loved the graphic quality of the metal, wood and glass.
Upstairs is the master suite with another open-to-the-gables ceiling, and a sliding barn door to the bath with modern hardware and a pattern on the wood door that I found truly pleasing.
I am excited to show you this master bath. I am photographing the vanity from inside the shower enclosure. Note the different heights for the double sinks and the variation in the bowls.
The sculpted tub shares the same enclosure as the shower, which is behind me. It’s a wonderful use of space, and it might work well to rinse off after a bubble bath.
On the lower level is a space for cuddling on the sofa while watching movies or sports. Also on the lower level are three additional bedrooms.
The home was sufficiently lit by daylight. I had little need for additional lighting except for a little boost downstairs in the darkest areas.
This part of Park City used to be one of my favorites, and with the introduction of Lilac Hill, I’m happy to report that it still is. Time moves on: sometimes things are lost and many times things are gained.
