For a 17,000 square-foot chalet nestled in a gated community, Peak 72 has an unusual effect on wildlife. Every spring, moose migrate to the sprawling estate for what appears to be a mid-day snack, licking the log exterior with apparent glee.
The home’s construction is the simplest explanation. Built entirely from reclaimed woods, Peak 72 features myrtle wood from forests in Oregon, barn wood from California, and railroad ties reclaimed from the Great Salt Lake — which, for moose, become the delectable equivalent of a salt-cycle. For guests of the 7-bedroom luxury villa, the chance to see wildlife up close is only one of its enticing merits. With ski-in/ski-out access, a grotto-style hot tub, private gym, sauna and steam room, pool table and theater room, Peak 72 is its own hub of entertainment.
