Let’s do the math. For 19-million, you can buy this barn-style mansion with 19 bathrooms, nine bedrooms, four fireplaces, one decked-out movie theatre, one engineered pond with trophy-sized fish and a 3.5-acre motocross course—just for good measure. Located on 20-acres of farmland just outside of Salt Lake City in Utah, the 21,988-square-foot property began as “one family’s dream to create a place where memories could be made to last lifetime,” or at least that’s what the real estate listing says. Originally, the estate cost 32-million to build. So when you look at it that way, the 19-million price tag seems like a bargain.
To complement the pastoral surroundings, the mansion has barn-like features including gambrel roofs, timber framework and stylish dormers. The property is surrounded by the largest private grove of Sequoia trees in the state of Utah.
How gargantuan is the main floor? It looks empty even with a living room, full dining table, sitting area and lounge space. The ceiling’s intricate framework is intricate and masterful, while the metal sconces give the space a rustic vibe. The living room features two plush ottomans that double as coffee tables and extra seating.
The kitchen has marble countertops and wooden cabinets in a rich hue. Cut-out shelves provide additional storage for cookbooks in the island. There are two sinks: one in the counter and one on the island.
The dining table can easily sit 14, with plenty of extra space to pull in another table if need be. A patterned rug and metal chandelier make the large room feel more intimate.
The children’s playroom mimics an 18th-century pastoral farm. We love the painted mural of farm animals and the faux-stable doors. The room is kept clutter-free thanks to wooden closets lining the wall.
Go for a scenic paddleboat ride across the engineered pond or set-up a massive lawn bowling tournament on the huge grassy, property. To the left of the mansion is a guest house that looks equally extravagant.
