Stansbury Park home on display during Salt Lake Parade of Homes

Home features man-made lake, valley and mountain views 

A Stansbury Park home is one of 28 homes in the greater Salt Lake area featured in the 2019 Salt Lake Parade of Homes.

The 6,820-square-foot home, built by Eagle Point homes at 25 Pier Place in The Pier at Stansbury Park subdivision, is part the Salt Lake Parade of Homes. The home was built for Clayton and Laramie Dunn with interior design help from Deboni Sacre of Bountiful-based Liv Designs.

Clayton Dunn is the associate publisher and sales manager of the Transcript Bulletin.

The Salt Lake Parade of Homes started Aug. 2 and runs until Aug. 17 with homes open on Tuesdays through Saturdays from noon to 9 p.m.

The front door opens to a large great room with a vaulted ceiling and two stories of windows revealing the subdivision’s man-made lake with the Oquirrh Mountains as a backdrop.

The house is laid out so that nearly every room, including the butler’s pantry, has a view of the lake and the mountains.

A gas fireplace and large screen television lie on one wall of the great room.

The first floor includes a large kitchen with a breakfast bar and a dining area with enough room for two dining tables.

“You can feed a lot of people here,” said Clayton Dunn. “It will be great for family gatherings.”

The master bedroom features a gas fireplace, a television, a door that opens to the deck, and an ensuite bathroom with a walk-in closet, a jetted tub and a glass door shower with two shower heads.

The deck is partially covered and has a gas fireplace and a television in the covered area. The deck provides a view of the back lawn with a children’s play area and a sandy beach at the edge of the lake.

A laundry room is on the main floor.

The second floor has two rooms and a full bathroom. One of the rooms has two built-in bunk beds. The other room is set up as an art studio with plenty of natural light and the lake with the mountain view as inspiration, according to Dunn.

Stepping downstairs there is a family room that includes a theater area with leather theater seats and a game area.

There are also two bedrooms downstairs that are joined by a common full bathroom and laundry room.

One of the downstairs rooms was staged for the Parade of Homes by the Make a Wish Foundation for Jagger, a 7-year-old girl with bone cancer. 

When the Parade of Homes is over the furnishings will be donated to Jagger, Dunn said.

The house features energy efficient windows, vertically vented gas fireplaces, and direct vented water heaters to reduce energy consumption and cost.

The home is part of the Pier at Stansbury Lake, which sits west of Village Boulevard.

The subdivision’s man-made lake is 2,200 feet long, 275 feet wide and 10-feet deep.  

The lake will have a Waterski Sesitec System, a two rope-like system to teach beginning wakeboarding as well as allowing advanced riders to progress water tricks or improve their skills.

The subdivision also has an aquapark and children’s play area.

The lake is a private lake that is maintained by a homeowner’s association.

Run off from the development passes through a filtration removing oil and other contaminants before ending up in the lake.

The outlet for the lake is on the west end. It empties into an already existing drainage ditch.

“As you walk through the house you will clearly see it was designed with grandkids in mind,” Dunn said.

Tickets for the Salt Lake Parade of Homes are $20. Tickets are available at the Stansbury Park home or any other home on the Parade of Homes route. The house at 25 Pier Lane is the only house in Tooele County that is part of the Salt Lake Parade of Homes.

The Salt Lake Tour of Homes is produced by the Salt Lake Home Builders Association.  Additional information on the Salt Lake Parade of Homes can be found at
