5676 S COTTONWOOD
Holladay, Utah, 84117 $1,395,000
Step back in time with this mid century time capsule. So legit that it's been recently used for the set of movies and films. Once the home of the lovely Helen and Edward who enjoyed over 42 years of love and friendship together and raised two precocious children. When they weren't busy hitting golf balls and playing tennis at the Cottonwood Club, they developed and managed numerous commercial properties across Salt Lake as well as founded several international merchandise businesses. Their home, a modern masterpiece that Mad Men's Don Draper would undoubtedly drool over, was the hub of many social gatherings and bridge tournaments, with Helen earning the designation of Life Master bridge player. Signs of a life well-lived are everywhere... from the numerous bowling trophies lining the shelves, the decor and trinkets from their travels across the globe, to the library filled with old, worn, well-read books. The energy of the home sizzles and the walls tell stories of glitz, glamour, joy and laughter. This home although dated, has the bones of an absolute work of art and is crying to be restored to her full potential and previous glory days. However, regardless of the fate of this home, the grounds alone are worth the pricetag... one acre in the most coveted neighborhood in all of Salt Lake. Not only that, but this is also unquestionably one of the best and most secluded lots in all of Walker Estates... with the added bonus of a seasonal stream which flows along the length of the backyard, adding peace and magic to the air. The possibilities of what could be created here are beyond exciting, and if the lucky visionary who buys this estate wants to invite me over someday for drinks and a game of bridge, I'll be sure to wear my shiny pants and bring a plate of brownies!
