37bThe principals of Sterling Bay Companies could live anywhere in the world they chose. Based out of Chicago, they have visited luxury properties around the globe, seen every major city, and experienced many of the exotic corners. But then they came to Utah. Here, in the pristine, wide- open panoramas of the Wasatch Back, something quite unexpected happened: they fell in love. The 6,700 acres of Victory Ranch’s natural splendor moved them in ways they’d almost forgotten. The river, the wildlife, the land, and the stillness all converged to produce an inner peace that only nature can provide. “This was the place we wanted our children and grand children to experience,” said Matt Menna, one of Sterling Bay principals. “This is the place we want to come home to.”

Only a limited number of home sites in the magnificent Woodland Valley are being offered at Victory Ranch, with home styles ranging from spacious cabins to 10,000-square-foot modern mountain estates, each thoughtfully crafted to blend into the natural surroundings. This tiny community is designed to be a haven from the world’s stresses while providing the ultimate in exclusive luxury to its residents. The Conservancy at Victory Ranch guarantees that the land, water, and wildlife will be protected and cared for so owners’ future generations will benefit. Fed by mountain runoff and natural springs, Victory Ranch is steward of a private four-mile stretch of the Upper Provo River—a fisherman’s paradise and a naturalist’s utopia. Rees Jones was given a free hand in designing one of his favorite courses for the exclusive use of residents. The Lodge is large and warm, providing the perfect gathering space for gourmet dinners and casual relaxation with loved ones. The list of amenities is long, and the focal point is nature.

This community’s members have accomplished their professional goals, made their names, and are now looking for something deeper, more substantial in their relationships and experiences. Yes, there is comfort and impeccable service at every turn. Yes, this is an investment that promises yields in both financial and emotional rewards. Yes, it’s just minutes from Deer Valley, Park City, and an international airport. But, no, this is not a place for glitz, not a place ‘to be seen.’ This is a place to call home.
