5 Bedroom, 3 bath with Gorgeous Craftsman Kitchen ... close to Downtown!
The large red brick bungalow was built in 1919 by Benham Hunsaker, an Ogden resident who worked at the famed Stockyards on the west side of the river. In 1946, Mr. Hunsaker split his property into 3 units, to accommodate the many returning WWII soldiers. The home went through many owners, and remained a triplex - one that housed less-than-illustrious residents. The current owner purchased the home in 2007, and had just finished a massive remodel in February 2013, when an arsonist broke into the basement and set it on fire. It was nearly a total loss. After 16 months, the home was restored, rebuilt, and reverted back to the original single-family floor plan. The new home features original hardwood floors (that survived the fire) new Craftsman kitchen cabinets, granite counters throughout, tile baths & showers, central vac, all new electrical, plumbing, heating & air conditioning.
The home features 5 bedrooms + a library, with one king bed, four queens, a full futon, and two twin futons. There are two family rooms, both with cable TV & internet, a wet bar in the downstairs family room, and a storage room for bikes, snowboards, golf clubs and any extras.
This home works extremely well for corporate long-term rentals, as well as temporary housing for relocation. Keep in mind that Owner Sue Wilkerson is also a RE/MAX Broker/Owner, which can make your move even easier. The home has been used for family reunions, ski and cycling trips, graduations, wedding parties and corporate retreats, as well as long term relocation and employment-related housing.
There are full-size stacker washer & dryer, dishwasher, disposal, microwave and most every kitchen utensil I could think of.
The yard is features a fully-fenced rear yard. There is off-street parking for 4, at least, and easy access to all amenities.

About Sue Wilkerson
Sue Wilkerson believes in Ogden, probably more than most. Watching the city change over the past 14 years has been inspiring to her – and provides her with the experiences to share with you on a blog dedicated to her love of Ogden. So many times, those visiting - or moving to - Ogden just don’t have any idea how great it is here – her passion is contagious – you’ll be addicted soon to the mystique of the “outdoor recreation capital of the world”. Sue’s dedication to community started at an early age, growing up in Boulder Creek, California. Her spirit of civic responsibility was fueled by a college internship with Congressman Leon Panetta in Washington, DC. After graduating from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo in Agriculture, Sue went on to build an agricultural trucking business with her then-husband Ralph in Woodland, California. Moving to Utah in 1997, she spent some time in air freight, and then settled into real estate in 1999. Starting with Coldwell Banker, she soon launched her brokerage Terra Venture Real Estate in 2002, which has transitioned to RE/MAX Crossroads! It led her to fall in love with Ogden and the historic districts, with the grand mansions of yesteryear. Sue stays involved as the past-president of the Junior League of Ogden, board member of the Eccles Art Center, a Spiker for the Ogden-Weber Chamber of Commerce, Ogden City Landmarks Commissioner, active Trolley District advocate, among other activities. Living in the most amazing outdoor venue, Sue spends time snow-boarding, biking, hiking and cooking for all of her friends. She is happily single and living in a historically-designed infill home in Ogden’s Trolley District. Sue's love for historic, cool homes led her to purchase several great brick homes in the Trolley District, and she has refurbished many of them, improving neighborhoods and giving folks a cool place to live!

Why Sue Wilkerson chose Ogden
I fell in love with the bead-board eves, the gorgeous woodwork, the big front porch and the amazing front door. Since the fire tried to take away some of those things, I have worked to provide a wonderful home-away-from-home for the traveler, the executive on leave to Ogden, or the family needing a great place to land during family events.
What makes this Bungalow unique
The home is so close to downtown Ogden, the hot-spot of things to do! Every amenity is within walking distance, except, perhaps, Costco, but it is only a 5 minute car ride... Blending my own love for travel with the wonderful layout of this home, it really has been the Phoenix rising from the ashes. I put every feature in this home that i love in mine, just down the street, and then some. The views from the kitchen window of the valley, and the mountain views from the living room make this a special place.

Spacious, comfortable, with well equipped kitchen
Our second stay at this great property, which is convenient to downtown (5 blocks), and quiet, in a residential neighborhood. Well equipped kitchen. Our group of 8 ate all our meals here. Very spacious and comfortable.
Great location and at home feeling
The house had everything we needed and more. The space for my entire family was great! We enjoyed the White Christmas Experience on Christmas Eve. The kids loved the play room with games and toys with a TV in the basement. My aunt made a wonderful Christmas dinner in the well stocked kitchen and we read a Christmas Eve story to all the kids next to the fire with hot chocolate and marshmallows. There is a park conveniently located that we walked to as well. This house would be perfect anytime of year but we were more than happy to spend our second Christmas season in this house!
Spacious, well appointed Hunsaker House
This was our second stay at the Hunsaker House. It was wonderful to return to this comfortable and beautifully decorated home! There was plenty of space to entertain our friends and everyone was interested in the history of this house. Sue even had a decorated tree up and we loved sitting in the living room with the fireplace turned on. This home will be the perfect spot for any large family gathering!
It was an absolute pleasure to host your family again! I am always trying to come up with newer and better Decour and furnishings !! Thank you for choosing the Hunsaker home!
Close to downtown
The house was clean with nice furnishings and large enough for the 7 people we had staying.
Thank you for your review! Since I strive for 5-star service, I'd sure love to know what I can do better! If there is something specific that I can work on, please let me know (-:
Great home! Beautiful, roomy, and comfy.
This was a great home to stay in! It was perfect for our group. I would give it 5 stars. We did not realize until the last day that the ice-maker was not working, but we had not needed it up to that point. It may have been user error. Beds were very comfy. Location provides easy access to downtown Ogden, and if you know Ogden, access to beautiful hikes and places are everywhere. the owners were kind and gracious.
Loved the house! Perfect for our family trip!!!
Loves the house.. Perfect for our family of 4 with plenty of room to spare .. So nice to have the washer and dryer for damp ski layers!
Close to Ogden's central city, the Jefferson Avenue Historic District is only a 5 minute walk to Historic 25th Street, a two block area filled with shopping, restaurants & bars. The Junction is just 7 minutes walking - and it has restaurants, shopping, MegaPlex 13 cinema, indoor surfing and skydiving, indoor rock climbing, bowling, and a full arcade with miniature golf, and bumper cars. Gold's Gym is also based here, offering a full-scale gym experience. The newly-restored LDS Ogden Temple is an 8 minute walk, along with so many scenic stops along the way.
Within 20 minutes, you'll get world-class Olympic skiing at the Snowbasin Resort, and for the epic back-country experience, Powder Mountain is just as close. Both have extensive lessons - and don't forget concerts, hiking and mountain biking in the Spring, Summer & Fall.
In the summer months, there's the Ogden River Parkway, an 11 mile playground that offers off-street pathways following the Ogden & Weber Rivers - perfect for biking, skating, walking - its one of my favorites!!
The Ogden River is classified as one of the ONLY Blue Ribbon Trout streams located in an urban area. The river has undergone intense cleanup over the past 7 years, and is a new highlight within our city.
Ogden is also home to the Utah Railroad Museum, located at Historic Union Station. The gorgeous station houses the John M. Browning gun museum - as well as the Car Museum. It's a fun-filled day for all!
Ogden features many locally owned restaurants and bars, bringing a diversity to Utah that many visitors enjoy.
