Located in the Capitol Hill/Marmalade District, the John Alford house (1868) is close to downtown, art and culture, restaurants, mountains, and is an ideal spot for any traveler / outdoor enthusiast. Only a five minute walk to Temple Square, a one minute walk to the Utah State Capitol building, and very close to the Salt Palace Convention Center, Vivint Smart Home Arena, Salt Lake International Airport, and a number of different ski resorts and hiking trails.

The space
Built in 1868 and completely remodeled in the late 20th century, this home is older than the Salt Lake Capitol Building or the Salt Lake Temple! The home was originally built by John Alford, a British native, convert to Mormonism, and polygamist who migrated to Utah in 1865. This historic neighborhood is home to some of the most iconic and unique homes in Utah.

Where you’ll be

Salt Lake City, Utah, United States

Salt Lake City's Marmalade Hill Historic District was so named because early street names reflected the fruit-bearing plants and trees imported and planted there by its early residents. Marmalade is a small triangular area bounded by 300 North on the south, 500 North on the north, Center Street on the east, and Quince Street, the district's "Main Street", on the west. Settled in the early days of Salt Lake City, the Marmalade District is distinguished from other neighborhoods by steep, narrow, angular streets, mature landscaping and a surprising variety of vintage residential buildings. Within a single one-block area are almost as many styles of architecture as exist in the entire Avenues Historic District. Moreover, many buildings are considered to be among Utah's best examples of certain types of architecture. Today, the neighborhood stands as a modest, well-preserved, monument to the skill, taste, and resourcefulness of its pioneer inhabitants.
