From the Seller: Best location in Provo tree streets! Birch Lane is a level street from the Creamery on the 9th with no steep inclines for walking or winter driving. Homes rarely come for sale on Birch Lane (2 sales in last 5 years). The house is across from the Bowery in Kiwanis Park (a great neighbor) with Wasatch Elementary on the other side of the Park (a 90 second walk through the park). From the house, you have a panoramic view of the Y on the mountain, Kiwanis Park, the Valley, Utah Lake, and BYU's Campus! Five-minute walk to Creamery on the 9th. Ten-minute walk to the Y Center (Wilkinson Center) and to the Harris Fine Arts Center. A fifteen-minute walk to the Marriot Center (Basketball games), a 20-minute walk to the Baseball field and Lavel Edwards Stadium. No stress finding parking or driving in traffic jams after events (just a nice healthy walk)! My father-in-law bought 3 lots together on Birch and kept the one he considered best. This home was engineered by him to last and to survive and to protect his family from earthquakes. The basement has 8-inch exterior cement walls. It has a cement floor and ceiling in the basement that has galvanized pipe throughout for radiant heat (extremely clean vs forced air). Radiant heat pipes have no air in them and a corrosive resistant additive that a contractor told me the pipes could last for 200 years. The basement has cement/cinderblock interior walls for additional strength. The stairs and sidewalls to the top floor are cement (no squeaky joints)! The garage has a 12-inch steel I beam that spans the center of garage supporting the cement ceiling above (See pictures). The house is probably the safest home in Utah in an earthquake. The cabinets in the kitchen and master bath are solid birch wood (no laminate which is common) the molding and doors on the main floor are also birch wood. Contractors are amazed at the construction. The roof is the original (63 years old) and has no leaks. Another indication of the quality of construction. It was checked by a contractor who jumped up and down on it three years ago and said it was solid! We replaced the main water line in 2016 from the meter on the street to inside the utility room. A new $500 garage door opener was installed August 15, 2019 with a 5-year warranty that stays with the home. The blinds are included but the draperies are excluded from the sale. House can be rented by a single family or up to 3 separate individuals. Please check Provo City Zoning for complete zoning restrictions. Note: You can update a house, but you cannot change the location! The house needs updating which can be done to the new owner's tastes and is sold as is. The radiant heat boiler needs replacing in the next year or so. If you are looking for a comparable sold home in last five years, in terms of location, view, and construction, there is nothing that compares to this home in Provo! Buyer to verify all information.
