Park City, Utah

For skiers, few vacation-home developments can top the location of the new Stein Eriksen Residences at Deer Valley. Positioned mid-mountain at the intersection of the Last Chance and Silver Dollar ski trails, the community will comprise 16 homes and 38 condominiums, ranging in size from 2,100 to 5,770 square feet and from two to five bedrooms (five-bedroom model home shown). The full-ownership residences, which began presales in January, will feature interiors by Denton House Design Studio, a Salt Lake City firm known for lightening up the traditional approach to mountain decor. Finishes are customizable, and details include walls of windows and floating steel staircases. Expansive spaces for entertaining include gourmet kitchens with Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances. Exteriors of stone and reclaimed wood blend with the mountain landscape. When complete, the enclave will include an amenities building with an indoor/outdoor pool, a spa and fitness area, and a private dining room and lounge. Until the residence’s amenities are completed, owners will have access to the facilities at the nearby Stein Eriksen Lodge.
