Our home

The home is a very nice example of the lovely arhitecture in the neighborhood. It was built in 1931 when this neighborhood was created, is a Tudor type home, and we have renovated it slowly over the more than 22 years we have lived here. It is small, but very comfortable, with a finished basement, a lovely fireplace, and a beautiful backyard with a roofed picnic table on a brick patio. We would be happy to send photos by mail to anyone seriously considering a house exchange who live in an area we would consider. We would also strongly prefer exchanging with a couple in an age group like us; I am 64 and have just retired, and my wife is 53. We love our home, and we would want someone who loves theirs... Recent renovations:large, modern kitchen with granite countertops; hardwood floors re-finished and coated throughout main floor; guest room in basement just completely re-done; new roof on house, garage, and picnic table; walls re-painted and plantation shutters installed in rooms on main floor.

Who we are

  1. People call me Bill or my students have called me "Dr. B.". I am a retired chemistry professor (Professor Emeritus) at the University of Utah. My wife is a certified clinical social worker with a Master's Degree in Social Work from the University of Utah. We travel a lot, partially due to my continued collaboration with scientists in England and France. I am very interested in wine, and wine areas, but we are also increasingly interested, as we get older, in visiting warm climates during the winter months.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The "Harvard-Yale" area is one of the most highly desired residential areas in Salt Lake City. It has first-class homes(some of which are outrageously valued these days), and is close to both the University of Utah and down-town Salt Lake City, but there is easy access to the freeways and thus the world-class ski areas in the canyons(30-45 minutes driving time only, which is hard to believe!)
Our street has large, beautiful Sycamore trees completely overlapping the street (much like some rural highways in France). This is an "up-scale" neighborhood, but is a very friendly neighborhood, not a "gated community" type area!

There is a local small neighborhood business area 5-10 minutes walk away, where there are three high-quality restuarants: Paris Bistro (our favorite; just like being in Paris, France!We know, since we are there almost every year...), the Fresco Italian Cafe , and Mazza (Middle-Eastern) The first two have excellent international wine lists (contrary to the reputation of Salt Lake City as somewhere where you "can't" get a drink, you can get a drink before a meal, during a meal, and after a meal (Paris Bistro has an excellent dessert wine list) if you want!) To buy liquor privately in SLC, you must go to a state-run liquor store, but there is one ten minutes away, and the state Wine Store (10 minutes away by car) has an international selection equivalent to that of good wine merchants in Paris, New York, or San Francisco.
