The Colony welcomes The Lodge at Peak Five

Kelly Evertsen, Of the Record Staff

Just when everyone thought homes could not get bigger in Park City, commercial real estate developer Tony Thompson is trying to outdo them all.

Park City resident Thompson, CEO of Grub and Ellis commercial real estate company, recently completed building a 33,000-square-foot ski-in, ski-out home at The Colony at The Canyons Resort on a 5-acre lot near the 99-90 and Peak Five ski lifts.

The 14-bedroom, 17-bathroom home with a 28-car heated underground garage was recently put on the market. Thompson will be hosting an open house for brokers and their clients to view the home today, Dec. 29, and on various days next week.

The Lodge at Peak Five features more than $1,000,000 of designer furniture and specialty art, a spacious spa and exercise room, a 21-seat theater, a 3,500 bottle capacity wine cellar, flat-screen TVs in every room and full concierge service.

The home was built by local contractors and designers, including Culp Construction Company in Salt Lake City and local interior design group, Casa Bella. Park City’s Casa Bella also recently furnished the SKI Dream Home, which was completed by Resorts West in Deer Valley this month.

The home is for sale on a partnership basis where an owner can own a deeded one-ninth interest of the property for use of the property for five to six weeks throughout the year for $2.6 million per owner. The entire Lodge is available for sale for one owner for $28 million.

Thompson is originally from Dana Point, Calif. and came to Park City on vacation with his family several years ago and said he fell in love with the warm, embracing community and real estate opportunities in town.

Thompson owns a second home in Aspen Springs, and purchased multiple lots at The Colony.

Thompson said he sold most of the lots he purchased, but saved the property at Peak Five to complete a lodge the previous owner started building before she sold it to him.

Thompson’s daughter, Karen Taylor, who lives in Heber with her husband, was the site manager for the project. Thompson’s wife, Sharon Thompson, became the main interior designer, and worked with local interior designer Paula Berg to furnish and decorate the home. Local Jack Thomas was the architect.

Most of the furnishings and decorations are from Casa Bella.

The Thompsons got started on the project in March of 2005. Tony said, while it was difficult to commence construction on a project that had already started, he and his family were able to complete construction for the lodge within two years.

The lodge features a travertine floor in the entryway and great room, as well as a two-story glass wall facing the mountains, made with Pilkington glass.

Pilkington glass, Tony Thompson explained, is a unique British glass that was shipped in especially for this project. The glass wall is one-of-a-kind in Park City and offers 180-degree views of The Canyons ski runs and mountains.

The house also features a gourmet kitchen, designed by a professional chef, a press release states. It contains three dishwashers, two Wolf ranges and two Sub-Zero refrigerators and freezers.

There is also a billiards room and ski wing, with a ski prep room containing 22 individual lockers, ski boot heating equipment and hand warmers. Guests can literally step outside to access the slopes from the ski room.

The lodge also houses a caretakers’ wing, where locals Brad and Jen Osguthorpe are currently staying as caretakers for the home.

Thompson is hosting an open house for brokers and their clients to view the home this Saturday, Dec. 29, from 3 to 5 p.m. There will also be open houses on Jan. 2, 3, 4 and 5 from 3 to 5 p.m. For more information about the Lodge at Peak Five, contact Jenny Osguthorpe at (801) 589-6981.
