The ranch, located 16 miles north of Sundance and 50 miles east of Salt Lake City, boasts two bedrooms in the main farmhouse. The home also includes several contemporary living spaces that showcase the home’s 100-year old heritage, including stone fireplaces that act as the focal point in the living room.

The wood-kissed kitchen combines a traditional farmhouse aesthetic with a contemporary marble twist – but features are all overshadowed by the ranch’s most glorious asset: the view.

Yes, while the interiors have the power to delight, the ranch’s most impressive feature is its sublime Wasatch Mountain landscape, including the peak of the 12,000-foot Mount Timpanogoswhich envelops the verdant estate. The land is also situated on the fringe of Deer Creek Reservoir and the Provo River.
