One of the most exquisite estates in the Yalecrest Historic District located on prestigious Harvard Avenue -Simply a masterpiece of French Norman Revival architecture rarely found in Salt Lake City. Built in 1932, this home is secluded on an enchanting lot adjoining Red Butte Creek which enjoys the tranquil sound of the stream below. A two-story turret encloses the stately entryway, along with many enhancements typical of this eclectic period-a steep hipped redwood cedar roof, a conical tower roof, iron casement windows, and terra cotta quoins at corners and on the arched two-car garage. Notable interior features include the original oak wide-plank hardwood floor, carved stone and marble fireplace, elevated garden room with its domed ceiling and French doors to balcony. The spacious design boasts a richly paneled office with its own entrance, elegant dining room and many fresco-styled original wall and ceiling paintings as well as decorative custom plaster moldings throughout. Marble window sills grace these formal spaces and 1930's ceramic tiles preserve the integrity of the kitchen and breakfast room, with its large bay window overlooking the lush private grounds. A curved wooden staircase with graceful iron and brass railing lead to second story, which offers four bedrooms including a story-book Juliet round bedroom and a master bedroom suite. Both the master bath and full hallway bath are finished with custom tile murals of the period. Two second-floor balconies overlook the manicured yard. An originally tiled half-bath on main, a three-quarter bath and separate bedroom down complete the floor plan. The centerpiece of the courtyard is a fireplace with a dramatic chimney while a charming stone walkway showcases traditional geometric landscaping and a secluded patio. This is an estate sale.
