About Richard Russell
Purchased and renovated twice by a Las Vegas resident (originally from New York), manager, wife, two beautiful boys and one infant daughter currently spend their time equally between Las Vegas, Brian Head and Thailand. As the second owner of this 40 year old property, and having called this residence home for many of the 30 years that we have owned this, this is the first time this house has been made available for rent to the public. We have rented exclusively via VRBO for the past six years with great success. The property is owned by Russboworld Utah LLC, a registered company in Nevada. It is managed by the owners of Russboworld Utah. Because of the time zone difference between Thailand and the USA, it may take a few hours for us to respond to your inquiries. We apologise in advance for the potential delay.
Richard Russell purchased this House in 1989
Why Richard Russell chose Brian Head
Back in the late 1980's, when most homes in the Brian Head area were of basic design and construction, this home stood out as a very unique and modern design. Besides its excellent location within the actual city limits, which offers the benefits of city snow plowing, electricity, city sewer and water, the siting of the home is unique in that it faces the Brian Head ski area directly, with unrestricted and spectacular views of the mountain directly in front, and the Brian Head valley below. With few residences in the area, the location offers the convenience and safety of city access, yet ignores the common hustle and bustle of other housing areas and condo units. A large deck built off of the second level living room has one of a kind magnificent views of the surrounding area, ski resort, Bristlecone Pond, and Brian Head mountain. Few homes in Brian Head offer these types of views of the ski area. When purchased in 1989, the four story house demonstrated excellent build and design quality which was not common back in those days. Two major renovations in 2001 to 2005 led to a redesign of the master suite, with modern Kohler fixtures, showers, and baths, enlarged picture windows, decks, additional rooms, basement renovation, and a complete kitchen redesign and overhaul. An office was installed, four fireplaces, electric and gas heat, with modern appliances throughout. A home theater area was built with a sixty inch LED television, Blu Ray / DVD, satellite TV, and internet. The ski area, shopping and retail mall, and Bristlecone Pond, is a two minute drive on city plowed streets.
What makes this House unique
One of the few houses that has an overwhelming unrestricted view of Brian Head mountain. It is one of the few houses with a modern contemporary look. Four stories in height, with a modern staircase connecting all levels, it is a masterpiece of design. Two major renovations have improved the property dramatically. Few residences offer the views of the Brian Head ski resort and valley that this home does. It is a unique residence, basically unmatched in the area. The house is a two minute drive to either main ski resort parking area; one can walk to the southernmost ski slope (near Georg's Ski Chalet and Store) to access the ski area, but it is more recommended to drive the short distance to the main parking area.

Comfort meets cool and functional
Detailed instructions made the checkin and stay absolutely wonderful. What a wonderful place that provides privacy as well as multiple areas to congregate with your group. After a day in the cold (we are fair weather people) lounging in the hot tub warmed us to the core and we were relaxed and ready for sleep. Sitting in front of the fire and watching the snow outside the windows while music played through the built in speakers was a great end to a fun trip.
Our 2 families stayed for four days, plenty of room for all
Great place in Brian Head
We really enjoyed our stay! The house was clean and comfortable and the location was great! The property owner communicated well and the house had all the amenities we needed. Thank you!
Great for a large family.
This house was great for our large family. We also rented the cabin across the street to have enough beds for everyone and it worked out wonderfully. The owners are very friendly and helpful.
Great location in Brianhead
The house is hard to depict in photos, as it's truly 4 stories with a lot of level changes, so it was kind of surprising when we got there to actually see the layout. The owners are honest about it being a very dated property (though cutting edge in the 1980s) and they haven't updated really any of the furniture or finishes, so if you're kind of a neat freak, this may not be your place. That said, it was fully functional with a well-stocked (perhaps overly stocked) kitchen. We visited in the summer so cannot speak to snow conditions. It is in great proximity to the Brianhead Resort and is nearly at the end of a cul de sac so there was no traffic.
Perfect for two families
The house is so cool. My favorite thing was that the kitchen was so we'll equipped. It made cooking for the nine of us so easy. The location is beautiful, the beds we're comfy. It was a great little vacation.
