Most of us have dreamed about living in a castle at some time in our lives, perhaps even more so with TV shows like Game Of Thrones. Now you can make that dream a reality. A real life, modern day castle is up for auction in The Colony, one of the most-coveted neighborhoods in Park City.
Nestled into the trees, the Castle (212 White Pine Canyon Road) sits on five acres of slope-side property in the Canyons area of Park City Mountain Resort, close to the Quicksilver Gondola and Flat Iron chairlift. Among the luminaries the neighborhood has already enchanted include Will Smith, Michael Jordan, and Jeffrey Katzenberg. The 15,325 sq. ft. architectural masterpiece took seven years to build from large granite stones. Describing the property as "luxurious" is almost an understatement. With a gourmet kitchen, seven fireplaces, a library, and ski room, not to mention its many other features. Every bit of the house was created with true craftsmanship, from vaulted cathedral ceilings to ornate woodwork and fine leaded glass. It's a perfect mix of privacy and convenience for experiencing all the best Park City has to offer.
The home's current owner designed the house herself in collaboration with architect David Henshaw and builder Al Coelho. Through a partnership between Concierge Auctions and Paul Benson of Engels & Völkers, the Castle will go to the highest bidder on July 27. It's the first time the property has been on the market. Interested parties can view w the house between 1-4 p.m. by appointment.
