Winter, spring, summer or fall, you can’t really go wrong with an escape to the mountains. This time of year, the ski slopes of Park City and Aspen are melting, revealing the endless mountain biking and hiking trails below. The air is crisp, the sun strong by mid-day, and those incredible, adventure-filled summer months are right around the corner. Sold yet? You wouldn’t be alone.
Mountain destinations around the country are experiencing an ongoing real estate boom (or bloom, if you will). In 2020, Aspen saw single-family home sales rise 81%, while Park City saw a 49% increase in single-family home sales. And the trend continues as the appeal of mountain life draws buyers from around the country and the world.
“Many people live in Park City year-round to enjoy the destination's incredible mountain biking, hiking, trout and lake fishing, concerts, and cultural events you don’t generally see in towns of this size,” says Sean Railton of The Agency Park City. “Some of this is due to Park City being the home of the Sundance Film Festival, which brings in an international appeal to the region.” Sean also notes that Park City is just a 35 to 45-minute drive from the Salt Lake City International Airport.
Among Sean’s current portfolio of listings in the region is 143 White Pine Canyon Road, a modern masterpiece by architect Clive Bridgewater, co-listed with The Agency Founder and CEO Mauricio Umansky. Situated on 4.3 private acres in The Colony, a gated ski-in/ski-out community in the White Pine Canyon area, the seven-bedroom, nine-bath residence encompasses 11,184 square feet of living space and showcases both sweeping down valley views and ski-slope mountain vistas.
