Park City’s Hidden TreasureBy Annette Velarde

VA-CA-TION:  noun, often attributive va-ka-shen, a time of respite from something.

Everyone needs time away from their daily grind, a period during which they disengage themselves from the everyday world of cares. No problems confronted, no solutions
searched for. You vacate your everyday life.

You may have already discovered that Park City is the ideal place for your family to vacation. Dazzling bluebird skies and countless outdoor activities make this mountain hamlet a realm completely removed from metropolis life. But, perhaps you have not yet discovered the pinnacle of perfection, the gem waiting to be discovered: Juniper Landing. Tucked alongside Canyons Golf Course, Juniper Landing is a collection of 57 townhomes ranging from 1,278 to just over 2,500 square feet with two, three, and four- bedroom townhome-style models available.

The trick to finding the perfect retreat is ensuring the community has services and amenities that family members can enjoy so everyone gets their dream vacation. Iron Mountain Group,
the developers of Juniper Landing, envisioned a haven where owners could relax and appreciate the comforts of their homes while having a wealth of comforts and activities to choose from. Exclusive use of a Junior Olympic-size pool, hot tub, gym, sauna and community fire pit will be added in the near future for owners’ pleasure. Within walking distance of the Waldorf Astoria and Canyons resort, Juniper Landing offers an endless list of leisure pursuits. During the winter season, residents are just steps from the Waldorf Plaza Ski Gondola. During the summer months, the kids can zoom across the mountain on zip-line tours while Mom spends the day pampering herself in the renowned Waldorf Astoria Spa. Dad can join his friends for a day of golf on the soon-to-be completed course and spouses can meet up at one of the many nearby restaurants or lounges. Summer camps and child care are offered next door at Canyons, so even the younger family members are treated to days of fun and planned adventures. The whole family will love Juniper Landing’s connections to Park City’s 350 miles of maintained mountain trails for hiking, biking, and horse back riding.

The innovative, green design of Juniper Landing elevates these attached homes from any others offered in the Park City area. Central gathering spaces make it easy for family and friends to spend time together, while bedrooms are separated to afford privacy. Upscale appliances, stone countertops, and a spacious island make the kitchen a gourmet’s dream to prepare meals in.

Each bedroom has its own private bath and generous amounts of closet and storage space. Every master suite becomes a cocoon of reprieve with its private balcony, romantic fireplace, and sumptuous bath. Large windows frame spectacular views of the golf course and mountain ranges beyond. All the wood and stone finishes are of artisan quality, and softened and warmed by designer choices in eloquent wall colors and fabric textures. The architecture and layout must be seen to appreciate the forethought, rich details, and innovative design that went into building each model.

Even better, Juniper Landing is a favorite location for vacationers seeking a short-term rental. The revenues earned during periods your family cannot use the home make it possible for your second home to pay for itself.

Juniper Landing invites you to tour their property during the Showcase of Homes being held the consecutive weekends of August 17-18 and August 31–September 2, 2013. Rick Shand at 435-655-1930 or or Tracey Jaret at 415-901-2355 or would also welcome your call for a private showing any time you are available.

Juniper Landing is a Park City treasure waiting for your discovery.
