    MULTIPLE OFFERS! Historic Marmalade neighborhood on the west side of Capitol Hill and six blocks to downtown, five to I-15 on/off ramps. HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS! The home was originally owned by an 'ox team pioneer' who came across the plains with Captain Snow's company to settle in Utah. He was only 8 years old when he arrived. Thomas Bircumshaw became a porter at the Continental hotel in SLC, married and bought this home and lived there until 1924. The current owners are relocating out of state and have meticulously gone through and updated this vernacular/Victorian-style home and attached to this MLS is the list of upgrade items you wouldn't normally pay attention to when shopping for homes. Plus, they just had a home inspection and addressed virtually all the minor issues that came up on the report so it's like you're getting a new home that's over 100 years old! Thanks to the architectural design there are huge windows in the original section of the house that bring in massive afternoon and sunset light that reflects off the high ceilings. In the back yard you get to sit outside on your patio and enjoy the morning sun and the bird song and have evening parties without the glare of the summer sun. There's a beautiful garden and landscaping that goes up the hill behind the home with a gardening shed that these owners have built to store tools and pot plants. This is a great place to entertain because the brand new kitchen (white cabinetry, stainless appliances) has a large great room that is almost as wide as the entire home plus two living rooms, one with a fireplace and the other for formal dining. The master bedroom has a new bathroom and is large and the second bedroom can be a home office or fits a twin bed as shown in the photos. Also- a full second bathroom with a clawfoot tub for soaking, too! There are three parking spaces and storage alongside the south of the home. You are just blocks via bike or bus to downtown shopping, restaurants, bars and Goldman Sach's offices or connections to light rail /Front Runner trains heading north or south. Nice little public park at the north end of the street with a nature trail, and one of the best juke joints in town ('the Garage') on Beck Street that offers live music and deep fried funeral potatoes!
