Ski home in Deer Crest

Our Deer Valley real estate best buy this week is a timeless Deer Crest ski home that just had an over $300,000 price reduction!  Located on just over an acre this Deer Crest home offers privacy that most Deer Crest homes don't have, with over 50 trees on the property and the fact that it boarders open space.  The views from this home are tranquil and serene with views of the glorious multiple mountains ranges and no view or noise from the highway which many Deer Crest homes have.  It is tucked away on a quiet cul-de-sac with pristine ski access right out the ski prep room onto the private Home Run ski trail that leads to the gondola.
