Goss Residence

2013 BALA Silver Winner

One-of-a-Kind Home over 6501 sq ft

Nestled in the natural beauty of the Wastach Mountains surrounded by ski runs of the Canyon’s Ski Resort, the Goss Residence sits on 10 acres in The Colony located in Park City, Utah. Built in only 14 months, this 10,000-square-foot masterpiece reflects the modern mountain architecture envisioned by architect Michael Upwall.

The placement of the home on the lot and floor to ceiling windows provide views of the natural beauty from every room in the home. The design takes advantage of the ski-in-ski-out location with a hearth room including ski lockers, a bath and steam room. The gourmet kitchen may deceive some because of the amazing Gaggenau appliances that offer gourmet benefits while maintaining a non-intrusive atmosphere. Radiant heat not only provides the home with balanced cooling and heating but keeps the driveway free of snow and ice.

The home utilizes Lutron lighting and blinds to help create the ambiance so vital to this mountain setting. As you enter the home the distinctive round, free floating staircase grabs your immediate attention. The rounded second-story balcony leads your eyes toward the floor to ceiling windows from which the beauty of nature pours into the home. Distributive audio throughout the home combines with TV and theater room controls to combine a sensory experience in every room. The theater room is incorporated into the basement living space, including a wine closet and wet bar. Arched fireplace chases, roof lines and accents blend the home with its natural surroundings.
