About Donald Hadden

I built this house when I was graduate student at the University of Utah School of Architecture. I raised my three kiis in this house and only recently tuned it into a ski rental property.

Donald Hadden purchased this house in 1981

Why Donald Hadden chose Sandy

This property is exceptional because it is both close to ski resorts and also close to city activities.

What makes this house unique

Property has a two car garage and sleeps 11 people with unique architectural features.

A Pleasant Stay

  • 4 of 5

This house in Sandy was 'quirky' but well-equipped, clean and perfectly adequate for our party of 8. Conveniently located for access to both Big Cottonwood and Little Cottonwood Canyons and not far from the freeways. Getting in and out of the driveway onto the busy road was a little bit of an adventure but we managed!

Not impressed with property

  • 1 of 5

Although the home was in good condition it was not clean with spider webs throughout and even a spider alive in the microwave the first time we used it. The AC is in the basement and does not cool the house during our stay in June. The swamp cooler did not cool the house well. Wifi didn't work either. Overall the home served our needs for a place to stay but we will not rent this home again in the future.

Plenty of space. Great price. Quick access to Little Cottonwood canyon.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here with three families, a total of 8 people, and had a great time. There is enough room that we would have been comfortable with a few more people. The place was nice and clean, and very interesting architecturally (kept the engineers in the group discussing the passive solar design).

Perfect location for our ski trip!!

  • 4 of 5

Donald thank you for sharing your house in Sandy. The location was perfect for our ski trip. The house was a good size for our group of 5 men. The house was clean and comfortable for everyone. Very easy to find from the airport to the slopes. We will be back!! Thanks again

Nice Home for Ski Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Overall the home is very nice. Very well stocked as far as detergent, paper towel and toilet paper. The major issue for us were the beds. The beds were Full size but the problem was not the size of the beds but the mattresses and bed frames. In one room on main floor the bed mattress was sinking in the middle. In basement the beds made loud noise anytime you moved on them since they were metal frame and sounded like they were going to fall apart. One of the upstairs rooms had no window to ventilate. The owner is very nice and resolves issues right away. Overall the stay was nice and enjoyable.

Lovely eccentric home!

  • 4 of 5

Great accommodations for 8 of us. Very close to our seminar location which made it convenient, even with the 6" of snow we woke up to Saturday morning! Snow shovels readily available and having the garage entrance was a plus. Sound does carry in this house through vents and the openness of design. Overall, very comfortable stay in Sandy, Utah.
