Overview

About the property

Perfect for events, large groups, and family reunions. Minutes from downtown.

This home an unbelievable treasure. It is a brick home built in 1886 during the Victorian era and was one of Salt Lake City's first farmland estates. Although the farmland has changed over time, the Brighton Farm Victorian Villa remains the neighborhood's earliest piece of period architecture. It has been newly restored and renovated with the best of everything, bringing you an unprecedented experience in an historic home.

It is a large home on three floors, spacious and accommodating for large groups. It has beautiful high ceilings, a living room/great room, kitchen with eating nook, four bedrooms, a loft, family room on the lower level, and two gorgeous bathrooms with hot water on demand.

The house has a high energy whisper furnace, so you'll never hear a sound when it goes on. There is a high efficiency tankless hot water system so you and your guests will never run out of hot water no matter how many are in the house or how many showers you take. :-)

All the beds are brand new and excellent quality tempurpedic and pillow top mattresses. Each bed is protected with a freshly laundered protect-a-bed waterproof mattress cover.

This is a beautifully decorated home with lovely beds, linens, and furnishings. Additionally, there is a large indoor storage area just inside the lower level back door for your skis, bikes, and gear.

There is plenty of room for your family and friends to enjoy Utah's world class skiing or exquisite summer beauty from this well located home base.

About Rhea & Jackson

We where married in August of 2008 and in November of 2008 we bought this home. What then ensued was a very interesting and overwhelming journey of a complete home remodel. We replaced everything in the home including the foundation. Luckily both the home and our marriage survived the remodel :)

VRBO is such a fun way for us to share our love of beautiful places. The art of vacationing is the stress free enjoyment of time spent with those you love in a place that you love to be. We love hosting those who come to visit this amazing city we have every confidence that you will love your experience here.

Rhea & Jackson purchased this house in 2008

Why Rhea & Jackson chose Salt Lake City

Poplar Grove, borders the Jordan river and has several public parks, including the International Peace Gardens within blocks. Once a large farm and orchard in the late 1800's, the neighborhood has developed into a mixed-use use community.

The SLC International Airport is only 7 minutes from this home. Downtown and the renoun Temple Square (the Mormon Tabernacle Choir practices and performs here) is just minutes away, access to major and connecting freeways is close by and convenient, and world class ski resorts are 20-25 minutes away from the property.

Simply beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The house looks just like one you would find in a magazine. Great taste in all the house . Every detail made you feel at home, a five star home!!!

The owner obviously enjoys cooking. The kitchen has, not only first class new appliances, but also loads of gourmet stuff like italian made pots and pans. A pleasure cooking there!!!

Check-in and check-out were really straight forward and that made a huge difference, as we arrived at 1am !

The house had so many things included ( from cooking spices to hair conditioner) that it would be imposible to mention them all !

Thank you so much Rhea for an unforgetable stay!!!

Another outstanding ski trip with a great stay at this house!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I returned to this amazing house for our January ski trip for the second year in a row, and once again, we had a great time. Rhea and Jackson are great hosts: it was very easy to communicate with them before and during our stay, they had the house in perfect condition for us, and they were very accommodating about our check in and check out. The location was very convenient, with the airport and downtown just a few minutes away, and with Snowbird only about 30-40 minutes southeast. We hope to come back again next year - thanks again!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

The home was very clean and inviting. Adequate bedrooms and seating for a large family. Close to major shops and restaurants, within walking distance if desired. The kitchen was equipped with everything needed to cook meals and dishes to serve. The linens were fresh and "white". The Christmas decorations were simple but very tasteful. We were impressed with the owners accommodations and would certainly rent the property again; and will recommend to others.

Completely renovated, big house lets groups spread out over three levels, allowing for plenty of privacy. Super well equipped kitchen. Beautiful furnishings and fun, historical décor.

So close to a 5 star hotel I thought the beds would made every morning!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for several days with our family of 9, my wife's parents and her sister's family for a total of 15 people and we never felt crowded. The stocked fridge, abundance of towels and comfortable beds are great to come too after a long drive or day out. I liked it so much I booked it again after the first night for another trip I am making to Salt Lake for business and am excited to come back. Rhea and Jackson have also been great to deal with and we appreciated the extra touches in the home - it is incredibly beautiful.
