HIGH ALTITUDE RECREATION MEETS LUXURY HOME OWNERSHIP

Beyond a Private Heli Ski Ranch, Sanctuary Utah is A shared community with 527 acres ofpreserved wildlife habitat set in 10,000 acres of open space with 13 exceptional homes.

Sanctuary Utah’s founder, Tim Charlwood, is no stranger to adventure. Having sailed and ballooned all over the world, he has viewed the world’s most exotic landscapes from a unique perspective. He also became a founding member of Mustique Island, a private island in the Grenadines, where he rubbed elbows with some of Britain’s most colorful characters (Mick Jagger, David Bowie, etc). Charlwood’s entrepreneurial spirit and thrill-seeking lifestyle eventually brought him to Utah, spurring his quest to create a luxury real estate masterpiece of his own, Sanctuary Utah. Charlwood exclaims, “I’ve traveled the world and felt I had seen everything. Then I found Sanctuary, and this topped them all. The next day I committed myself to building a community here.” Don’t let the luxury fool you, Sanctuary’s community is built for like-minded seekers of the exceptional, where outdoor experiences and high-altitude recreation take precedence over white-glove service and material possessions.

OUR LOCATION SAYS IT ALL

LOCATION: The magic of Sanctuary is in its location in Huntsville, Utah, where there are no stoplights; this is what Park City was like 35 years ago. Sanctuary is only 15 minutes from Utah’s best uncrowded ski resorts (Snowbasin and Powder Mountain), only 55 minutes from SLC International Airport, and just over an hour from Park City. Sanctuary, a true escape, is secluded yet close to everything. “When Richard Branson visited Sanctuary, I was thrilled to hear that his first words were WOW, followed by more WOWs as we toured the entirety of the property,” says Charlwood. “I’ve heard more WOWs than I could ever have imagined. There is definitely some magic up here that pulls at your heartstrings.”

INDOOR ANYTHING – OUTDOOR EVERYTHING

Recreation: Adrenaline is another value driven into Sanctuary’s lifestyle by Charlwood. “Outdoor recreation has been my driver in life, pushing the limits or just taking in the magic of an environment,” he says. Beyond a private heli-ski ranch with untracked powder fields only minutes away, the investment in outdoor recreation is significant. An elaborate recreational trail system that is an Olympic-designed Nordic ski track in the winter and a biking, hiking, and running trail in the spring/summer/fall, can be accessed from each home. Homeowners and their guests have exclusive access to the trails as well as a top-of-the-line fleet of toys—from electric fat bikes to snowmobiles, and off-road vehicles to a premium wakesurfing boat. Four-season adventure is an integral part of Sanctuary, and one of Charlwood’s signatures.

Environment: With uncompromised panoramic views of the Hunstville Valley, Snowbasin Ski Resort, Pineview Reservoir, and Powder Mountain, you can’t help but feel connected to the alpine environment at Sanctuary. Charlwood’s commitment to community and protecting Sanctuary’s environment is palpable. The property sits on 527 acres of preserved wildlife habitat backed up to 10,000 acres of open space with 13 home sites, each with its own 40 acres. “Sanctuary is a careful balance between sharing and preserving the environment,” says Charlwood. “Maintaining and preserving Sanctuary’s habitat has become an enjoyable obsession and something to be very proud of. That’s why 89% of our land was turned over to a land trust and preserved forever.”

Architecture: Environmentally, Sanctuary homes are designed to have less of an impact on the environment. This means geothermal heating and cooling, zero waste water management, xeriscape landscaping, as well as home designs that take advantage of south-facing solar aspects. Designed by James L. Carroll, Sanctuary Utah’s luxury homes are designed to impress. His plans take on a character of their own in each location. Every bedroom has a spectacular view, while the central rooms and kitchens are designed for entertaining.

“The hope is not to conform to any ‘style’, but to convey fun and adventure for everyone, bringing the beautiful outdoors in, with a rewarding surprise around every corner. I want everyone to say, ‘wow, where did you find that?’!”
—Michaelle Peters, Designer

Design: The homes’ interiors are meticulously designed by Michaelle Peters of Park City, Utah. Throughout her 20-plus-year career, Peters has put her signature on many luxury properties including the Stein Eriksen Lodge at Deer Valley. Every room has its own unique characteristics, creating an environment of its own. “The hope is not to conform to any ‘style’, but to convey fun and adventure for everyone, bringing the beautiful outdoors in, with a rewarding surprise around every corner,” says Peters. “I want everyone to say, ‘Wow, where did you find that?’!”

Monthly Ownership: Keeping to the tradition of separating themselves from the competition, Sanctuary has re-written the rules of shared ownership. At Sanctuary, the entire home is yours, one month at a time,  forever. “This is your home to use, to share with friends and family, and to start a tradition during your favorite month,” says Charlwood. When asked why Sanctuary sells monthly ownership vs. full ownership, Charlwood responds, “Vacation homes are rarely used, and when they are used, it’s usually only a few weeks out of an entire year. Our goal was to create a stronger sense of community within Sanctuary, and let our owners choose their favorite month. This allows our community to thrive year-round and gives our homeowners the ability to come and go as they please with no reservations and no surprises. It’s also 1/12th the cost.” Owners can buy one month or more.
