It was always part of “the plan” to have my mother-in-law move in with us after her husband passed away. That unfortunate event came in December 2014.
My wife loves that home, and some of her fondest memories were made there. Now she’s ready to give that same opportunity to a new family.
After Ed passed away, my wife wife hired a renovator to go through the house and make it “like new”. We patched the walls, re-carpeted a few rooms, installed new countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms, cleaned out the crawl-space and storage shed, painted virtually everything, and the driveway was even recently replaced.
All that having been said, it’s hard for her to sell it – closing a chapter in one’s life so they can move on to the next isn’t easy. The sooner we can sell this house, the sooner that can happen.

So, what’s so great about this house? Let’s jump right into the vitals!
Location, Location, Location
First of all, this beautiful home is located in Layton, Utah. It’s minutes away from Highway 89 and I-15.
The local church, ball field, tennis courts, soccer field, playground, golf course, and community fishery are just up road. The park is great for kite flying in the Spring, and sledding in the Winter!
The house faces South. You know what that means? No icy driveway! It’s pitched just enough to harvest the sun’s rays to melt most of the snow that falls on it, and keep it ice-free with very little effort! (You have no idea how nice this is unless you’ve owned a south-facing home before.)
That also means half of the backyard, on the North, is shaded, inviting cool afternoons and evenings outside, even on the hottest days. The upper half of the backyard is raised and gets plenty of sun, just in case you like the heat!
You want vaulted ceilings? You got it! How about a romantic wood-burning fireplace in the livingroom? Yup! That’s there, too!
Are you into food storage? There’s a HUGE crawl space (with a cement floor) ready for you to pack all your foodstuffs away for when you need them.
How about a garden? It’s already planted with strawberries, two types of raspberries, and a tomato bed (that only needs you to drop in your ‘maters. There’s a walnut tree, apple tree, and even an asian pear in the backyard, too.
Oversized 2-car garage. Complete with storage cabinets and garage-door opener.
Paved Trailer Pad. If you’ve got a trailer (or a spare car), the RV pad on the side of the house is large enough to park even the longest 5th-wheel – without blocking the rest of the driveway or looking like an eyesore.
Workshop/storage shed. Tucked on the side of the house is a workshop/storage shed for all your tools, lawn mower, gardening tools, and more.
Central Air with Natural Gas Heating. Ed recently had central air installed. The equipment is very new, with very little use on it.
Bedrooms. Four bedrooms (3 on the main floor).
Office. There’s a nice, quiet office in the basement. You could use it as a craft room, storage room, or “man cave”.
Bathrooms. Three bathrooms (1 Full, 2 Three Quarter)
Size: 2,414 square feet on a 0.21 acre lot.
