Our Evergreen cabin at 8118 Brighton Loop Road is one of our favorite possessions but we have decided to sell it with an asking price of $1,250,000. It was built about 25 years ago by Alan Murphy, a general contractor from Salt Lake City, to be his personal mountain home. Every part of the building is truly remarkable. Not only does the 25-foot vaulted ceiling over the entire living area create a sense of mountain grandeur, but provides for a view of the west mountain forest up to Mt. Millicent which is absolutely spectacular.
The buildings radiant heating in the floor makes the floors in the wintertime always warm and comfortable. The super-efficient furnace is new (2019) and provides not only floor heat but also constant production of domestic hot water so we can never run out of hot water! Remarkably, the annual cost of propane is less than $2,000 because of the super-efficient boiler, and also because our two, 1,000-gallon propane tanks enable us to buy fuel only once a year, in August, when the price is $1.00 per gallon! This is important in this kind of winter environment!
Best of all, the cabin is always accessible, being located off the main road, right between Silver Lake and Brighton Resort!
Telephone and internet service are by Century Link. DISH provides the TV.
The heated garage on the left is double long with a door at each end so that it is easy to drive a vehicle with a snowmobile trailer straight in, and then continue straight ahead and out the opposite door.
The new, wider driveway was rebuilt in September, 2019 to provide parking for 4 vehicles and yet preserve the forested setting.

  • Fraud & Scam Awareness
    Unfortunately, there are people that will use internet sites like ForSaleByOwner.com to run all manner of scams on users. We do all that we can to prevent the willful misuse of our platform, however; every day, the scams get more and more sophisticated. We ask that our users be cognizant of the risk and review the following basic ways to recognize and avoid being scammed.
  • Recognizing and Avoiding Scams:

    • Use secure, traceable transactions when making payments - Do not pay a deposit by wire transfer, prepaid money card, gift card, or other non-traditional payment method. Also, refuse to make "overpayments" and never enter into "handshake" deals without a contract.
    • Don't accept suspect cashier/certified checks or money orders - Banks will process and cash the fakes, then hold you responsible.
    • Never give out financial or personally identifiable information - This includes banking and credit card information, your birthdate, Social Security/Social Insurance Numbers, PayPal account etc.
    • Suspicious communications - Watch for parties communicating using poor grammar, spelling or those who send nonsensical messages. Be wary of parties that are only willing to text/email and those that will never speak on the phone or that refuse to meet in person. Generally these people will claim to be "travelling" and unavailable to talk or located in a foreign country and unable to speak other than via text or email.
    • Deals Too Good to be True - If the list price is obviously too low, or the terms are too generous as compared to the market, it’s likely a scam.
    • Don’t be pressured to act immediately - Scammers typically try to make you think a listing is in high demand in order to push you into immediate action without consulting family, friends, or financial advisors. Say no to high pressure sales tactics.
