And, as per usual in Utah, the arm wrestle between warm sunny and cold gloomy days is likely to continue through May.

the HOLLAND: Why We Love It, and Know You Will Too

the HOLLAND: Why We Love It, and Know You Will Too

 

 

Before closing on a home in Salt Lake City on Wednesday, we went through and took some photos for our gallery (side note: if you’re looking for an AMAZING photographer that will capture and enhance the beauty of your home, check out Jed with Mouve Media). This home is the HOLLAND floor plan and with its functional layout, stunning design and so many customizable options, it’s no wonder that we haven’t had this plan go past 4-way without selling yet! Here’s what we love about the HOLLAND:

 

GOURMET KITCHEN

The 10’ island, gas range, double ovens, and a sink in front of a window overlooking the backyard are just scratching the surface ...
