From the Zillow listing:


269 A Street is an impressive and stately property that has been coined the “Jewel of the City” – this magnificent 1939 estate is situated on the foothills above Salt Lake City with sweeping panoramic views that spans from SLC’s downtown area to the State Capitol Building all the way to the surrounding Wasatch mountains. This home has large, open areas for entertaining as well as private, family-oriented spaces. It has welcomed a U.S. president, senators, governors, mayors and many from the entertainment industry and has hosted numerous charitable events. A place for community, family and friends to gather was paramount to the home’s owners. An extensive remodel (that included additions) was completed from 2005-06, with an English country house as the inspiration -. This extensive renovation involved multiple renowned parties within the architectural, interior design and exterior landscaping communities, resulting in an impressive remodel with exquisite attention to detail. One of the highlights is a spectacular two-story library made of English pine, boasting perfectly framed views of the Utah State Capitol Building. The stunning kitchen includes a butler’s pantry, a La Cornue range and a stone floor which services a formal dining room and also opens to an informal dining area and inviting family room. Impeccable and impressive architectural details include a floating limestone staircase with an art glass ceiling installation above – the curved staircase mirrors graceful elements in the ceiling. Other features include custom chateau parquet floors made in France, hand-stenciled ceilings, limestone floors, an upstairs gallery space for art works, and a stunning Charles Matton miniature library art installation. Don’t miss the stunning exterior grounds with fine gardens and landscaping, plus a connected guest house that is included in total square footage. This truly magnificent property is in perfect pitch with its surroundings and is not to be missed. Furniture negotiable. All artwork is excluded.
