REFUGIO DI LORENZO
This it The Best of The Best!!!!
Location! Location! Location!
Old Town Treasure on the Gold Coast.
Refugio di Lorenzo is the ultimate ski-in/board-out property in Old Town. Only for elite, discerning guests who appreciate, and demand the very best. A unique one-of-a-kind, extremely exclusive, private enclave of two special ski homes. A spectacular newly constructed, state-of-the art 6400 sf/5 br main house, and the detached cozy 750 sf/2 br historic black smith's cottage (Smithys House). Main house is a 'refined mountain rustic lodge' design, with extensive timber-framing, 50 ft timber frame elevator tower with see-thru mine style cab, and incorporates retro silver mine design elements. While the fully restored historic cottage, steeped in history, retains its warm cabin flavor, with authentic barn wood walls, wood floors, pot belly stove, antique refrigerator, mining style lighting, and hammered copper counters/sinks.
Combined both houses, form the ultimate ski compound for large families, and groups. They share a private heated 100 ft driveway and 2000 sf motor court, so there's plenty of parking. They are detached yet very close, but just far enough apart. Need a little breathing room? Stick the kids, nanny, or the in-laws in the guest house; While you enjoy the decadence of the grand main house. Regardless of who sleeps were, all can enjoy the unique amenities of the main house, fitness room, steam shower, sauna, game/media room, billiards, wet bar/wine cellar, main floor with its beamed vaulted Great room, DR, Gourmet Kitchen/Butlers Pantry, warmed by two massive stone fireplaces; or immediately outside, the heated patio,BBQ, custom hot tub, and fire pit.
More importantly both homes share the same superior ski access immediately to the south on the 6th St. municipal easement, or directly out the back door where the heated patio abuts Quit n' Time ski run. Click in, then its just a short 500 ft ski to the Town Lift base. Ski they slopes all day, at Ski Magazine's #5 rated Park City Mountain Resorts 110 acre's of varied terrain, hit Jupiter bowl, bumps, groomers. terrain parks, and maybe the Olympic Super Pipe. Legs burning? Take one last run down 'Quit n' Time right to your back door. Not ready to stay home? Then walk a few steps to Main Street and check out the apres-ski scene.
Tired? Take it easy just relax, enjoy the the luxury of your private resort and unwind. Got your second wind? Why not get in a quick work out in our fully equipped fitness room; finish up with a refreshing steam shower, and sauna. Not that motivated? Better yet just chill and relax; have a cold one in the custom built 120 jet hot tub, featuring built in Spa Theater System with Full surround sound music and Plasma TV. Watch the TV, and pity the masses of envious skiers as they slide right by just 10 ft away, en route to their tiny hotel room. It's good to be the king! Had enough tubbing? Now throw on your terry rope, sit by the fire pit, and enjoy freshly grille meal off the 48' Wolf BBQ. Too Cold? Take it inside. Prep your meal in Sub-Zero/Wolf equipped, gourmet kitchen w/butlers pantry. While every congregates around two fireplaces in the specatcular vaulted great room and dining room; enjoying the luxurious ambience. Then its time to retreat to you luxrious master suite, equipped with beverage center/Meile Coffe machine, fireplace,tv, jetted tub, and steam shower. Then again you could head down the stairs for a night on the town, and enjoy all the restaurants, shops, galleries, and nightlife Main St has to offer.

Incredible Ski Compound!
Incredible Ski Compound!
What a fabulous house, location, EVERYTHING! We stayed in the "Smithy's House" over spring break 2013. The property is amazing. The attention to detail is unbelievable. We are a "High Tech" family, and this house suits us perfectly. The home automation system is amazing. You can literally stream music from your iPhone to any room in the house, or the entire house. There are two Apple TVs that allow you to stream video to either of the massive living areas, or access your ITunes, Netflix, Hulu accounts to play any type of movie or video imaginable. You can control lights, locks, and even see who's at the front door from any of many display screens throughout the house. The WIFI access is super fast. There is even a computer and laser printer in the butler's pantry next to the kitchen. We used it to print our boarding passes for our return flight. The ski run is about 10 steps from the back patio, so many days we skied back to the house for lunch, then zipped back out to ski the rest of the day. The staff was very helpful, stocking the fridge for us prior to our arrival with our list of select food and drinks. In addition to our family of 5, we brought some friends; a family of 4 who stayed in the guest house. What a cool experience, having a State of The Art brand new MANSION steps away from a 100+ year old newly renovated cozy miner's cottage. You will absolutely not be disappointed with this property. Lawrence and staff are top notch and the property is unequaled. It is on-par or superior to any ultra high-end property in Park City, Deer Valley or anywhere else we have ever visited. Oh, Car is optional. The property is directly across the street from the steps down to main street. We timed it......90 second walk to Main Street Pizza and Noodle!

Excellent rental house
Excellent rental house
I have rented this property 3 years in a row. In my opinion it is the best house I have ever rented in a great town. From the moment we arrived, Lawrence set up transportation from Salt Lake City airport which is only 30 minutes away from Park City to where the house is located. The house has an incredible location (ski on/ski off) to the ease of getting to Park City town which is just two flights of stairs down the hill. Lawrence left no stone unturned when building this house. From the hot tub with a TV, to the work out room, to the beautiful furnishings I always look forward to an incredible week there. I highly recommend renting this property

Unbelievable Mountain House
Unbelievable Mountain House
This home is truly unbelievable! No detail is overlooked in this very high end property. Its location could not be more perfect as it is a short walk to the main street and easy access to the slopes. I would recommend it to anyone that has a large group and/or wants to have a very memorable vacation in Park City.

Best rental house in downtown Park City
Best rental house in downtown Park City
These two houses top any hotel or other lodging for quality and convenience in downtown Park City. We stayed here for a week in February 2011 with a handful of friends and their families. Everyone loved the experience. Highlights include ski in/out, an easy stairway walk right out the front door to Main St, and most importantly, the houses themselves. The main house is four stories accessed by silver mine-themed elevator, around which the see-through glass floors make you feel like you're looking down a mine shaft; our young kids loved that. No expense was spared in equipping every room in the house with the finest furnishings, including top-of-line appliances, exposed wood beams, beautiful floors and countertops, etc. The bed in the master bedroom is particularly comfortable. The driveway is so well heated that it's comfortable to walk in socks on a freezing night. We made good use of the hot tub, grill, workout room, and HDTVs with excellent sound system. I found the owner very pleasant to work with, and he and his helper were available to answer any question. We recommend this house highly for a top-quality, only-in-Park-City experience.

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: Hi! I'm Lawrence Meadows, 46 year old airline pilot, and avid skier. As the saying goes, I came for the winter, and stayed for the summer. I first skied Park City in '86, and feel in love with it. Being an American Airlines pilot, I regularly commuted from the east coast. Since Park City has the best ease of access of any resort in the country, it the obvious choice for me. I bought my first home here in '95, and been here ever since. In the past six years, wife, Ann Marie, and I have designed, developed, and built the best super-luxury ski homes in Old Town, and actively manage nightly rentals in four of them. Ann Marie is gourmet chef, and has owned numerous restaurants, she can arrange for catering or your own private chef.We will personally attend to all of your needs. You won't be dealing with a third party property management company, and as such won't be neglected.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
Ease of access from anywhwere by flight. Only 35min drive from airport. No need for a car once you're here. You can walk to everything.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
LOCATION!LOCATION!LOCATION! Best of Both Worlds - Just steps to both Skiing and Main St.
