As though straight off the pages of your favorite fairytale, this stunning French chÃƒÂ¢teau offers the charm of a European cottage, combined with all the modern conveniences one could desire. Nestled in the picturesque Heber Valley, this Midway estate boasts unobstructed views of Deer Creek and the lovely backside of the Wasatch Mountain Range. The staggered shingles on the undulating, sea wave thatched roof are one of the first things you'll admire on this already breathtaking facade. The hand-laid stone and moss driveway ensure an authentic French feel from the moment you set foot on this magnificent property, while a gated front walk and meticulously stacked stone exterior only further the appeal. Upon entering the foyer through the arched doorway, visitors are immediately struck by the soothing color palette and abundant natural light. A variety of European influences are evident, as the construction of this home pulls from the charm of the French countryside along with touches of Belgium and Sweden. Authentic, 300-year-old reclaimed timbers plank the ceilings throughout the main floor living space, while soft gray stained trim lends to the thoughtful design aesthetic. 18thcentury light fixtures and Swedish Gustavian style doors and trim work are continued throughout the home. The main floor boasts both formal living and dining rooms, along with an open great room. Just past the entry, you'll find the large eat-in kitchen, which is as stunning as it is functional. From the oversized marble island, complete with prep sink, to the double oven Wolf range and Sub Zero refrigerator; this space leaves nothing to be desired. The envy-inspiring butler's pantry can be found just off the kitchen, leading to the formal dining area. The main floor office space is replete with floor to ceiling reclaimed wood shelving and warm wood finishes. The main floor master suite boasts lovely natural light from the French doors leading to the patio and only enhances the cozy feel of this stunning space. The en suite bathroom features a freestanding bathtub, large walk-in stone shower, and private water closet. The spacious master closet houses an additional washer and dryer for added convenience. The second floor features one bathroom and two spacious bedrooms, complete with oversized walk-in closets, charming window seats and angled ceilings. The beautiful basement can serve an entertainer's dream or a potential mother-in-law space, complete with a full kitchen. Curl up next to the cozy stone fireplace in the great room or enjoy a round of pool in the play area. Off the main room, hidden behind a secret doorway, is a hallway leading to an additional bathroom and impressive theater, complete with tiered seating, state of the art sound and audio and an additional kitchenette to make your movie night the ultimate experience. This property sits on 0.5 lush green acres, with breathtaking views, impeccable landscaping and additional space to entertain at every turn. The courtyard is home to a covered seating area and built-in gas barbecue, while the sizable yard features a built-in basketball court, raised garden beds and a gas fire pit with bench seating. A darling built-in shed keeps with the aesthetic throughout the property and reminds you that no detail was overlooked in the design of this idyllic estate.
