Wolf Creek Ranch… Seclusion without Isolation!

wcrWolf Creek Ranch is the kind of place where the night sky is luminous, where the elk roam as they have for generations. It’s also a place that will never change.

Located just 25 miles outside of Park City, Utah lies one of the most expansive, most sought after gated communities in all of Utah and beyond. The Ranch is situated between Bench Creek Road in Woodland and Lake Creek Road in Heber City. 

Seclusion without isolation defines the 13,000 acre Wolf Creek Ranch. Roughly the size of Manhattan, this extraordinary property has been subdivided into 80 parcels, each comprising 160 acres or more. Wolf Creek Ranch shares a seven-mile contiguous boundary on the east side of the Ranch with the Uinta National Forest, which consists of 2.2 million acres.


Click here to download high resolution map

From various vantage points throughout the Ranch one can see the peaks of the Uinta Mountain Range, which rise to 13,500 feet to the northeast and the Timpanogos Range, which is directly to the west. One can also view the apex of the Snowbird Resort as well as the Mayflower and Deer Crest ski runs at Deer Valley Resort. There are numerous ponds on the ranch that have been stocked with trout as well as one-mile of frontage on the Upper Provo River.

There are many amenities available to Wolf Creek Ranch owners including multiple ponds stocked with trout, fly fishing, an equestrian center, a community center complete with meeting rooms, a full concierge service and multiple trails which can be used for hiking, biking and walking. ATV and horseback riding is available in the warmer months and skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling are available all winter long. Wolf Creek Ranch is fully staffed with onsite security, a Ranch Manager and maintenance personnel to keep residents safe and the area beautiful while attending to the needs and concerns of those who live within the Wolf Creek community. Though the Ranch itself offers everything residents may need to enjoy a life of outdoor beauty and privacy, it also happens to be conveniently located along a shared border with the Uinta National Forest and mere miles from Park City’s best ski resorts, restaurants, and festivals.

A Conservation Easement has been created to protect and enhance the conservation values of the ranch.  The easement is managed by Utah Open Lands Trust, a statewide program dedicated to stewardship of large ranches that feature conservation easements.  The Conservation Easement covers 100% of the land, excluding building envelopes, roads and driveways, and common area amenities.  The intent of the Conservation Easement is to protect the Conservation Values of the property such as the natural habitat for native wildlife as well as, ecological, scenic, agricultural, aesthetic and open space values.

Visit Utah’s Mighty 5 National Parks
Content Courtesy of

The Mighty 5® national parks in Utah draw several million visitors from around the world each year to marvel at surreal scenery and unforgettable activities. A trip to The Mighty 5 means watching the sunrise over the towering depths of Canyonlands National Park, then watching the sunset through an impossibly delicate rock bow in Arches National Park. It means standing nose-to-nose with ancient petroglyphs in Capitol Reef National Park, then lying on your back as a beautiful meteor shower streaks across the Milky Way. It means gazing down at coral-hued rock hoodoos in Bryce Canyon National Park, then gazing upward at the steep walls of slot canyon trails in Zion National Park. It means hiking, river rafting, biking, picnicking, walking, mule riding, exploring and stargazing.

The Emerging Luxury Consumer

2017_05_globalaffluence_blogheaderTo sell luxury real estate, you must understand the affluent buyers‘ needs and wants and be able to deliver to your clients.

In the era of the empowered luxury residential real estate consumer‰ – one who has access to information 24/7‰ – it is more critical than ever to engage in ongoing conversations. Understanding what is important to the luxury consumer, how they want to be serviced, and how luxury brands fit into their lives can not only help real estate brokerages make more strategic decisions, it can help foster a better connection between buyers and brand (with the intent that a strengthening relationship will move some moderate buyers into the top echelon of luxury consumers). It is simply not enough to solely market to them. They now expect a two-way conversation and continued nurtured relationship with the brands they buy from.

Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC is proud to present “Global Affluence: The Emerging Luxury Consumer,” a report examining the confidence, spending habits and purchasing interests of emerging luxury consumers from around the world, defined as those with $250,000 USD to $1 million USD in investable assets. The report found that this emerging luxury consumer demographic is confident when it comes to their personal economy and the economy of their respective countries.

2017_05_globalaffluence_social“The luxury residential real estate market is ever evolving,” said Philip White, president and chief executive officer of Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC.  “As a global leader in this arena, the Sotheby’s International Realty® brand commissioned this research survey to unveil emerging trends with luxury residential real estate consumers around the world.  We are always looking to the future and our focus is to keep a pulse on the state of the real estate market and the homebuyers of tomorrow.”

Key findings from the Sotheby’s International Realty “Global Affluence: The Emerging Luxury Consumer” report include:

  • 85% of emerging luxury consumers are confident in the housing market in their respective countries and are ready to purchase a home within the next three years.
  • 93% of emerging luxury consumers are looking to purchase homes with luxury components.
  • Emerging luxury consumers are interested in waterfront, metropolitan and historic homes.

“The luxury market has been redefined in recent years due in large part to the impact of the new emerging luxury consumer,” said Kevin Thompson, chief marketing officer of Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC.  “These individuals have a luxury sensibility and an affinity for exclusive brands, proving that luxury transcends income levels – it is about quality, uniqueness, and ultimately achieving a certain lifestyle.  The Sotheby’s International Realty brand has its eye on the future and is perfectly positioned to unite these extraordinary lives with extraordinary lifestyles.”
