A listing says the home was featured in Architectural Digest as "Utah rustic" and was constructed out of whole logs and local materials.

"The interior ... invites both grand entertaining and cozy relaxation," the listing said. "The architectural design is centered on the two-story great room with massive stone fireplace and magnificent views to the Uinta Mountains and beyond."

Back in the east Salt Lake Valley, Romney’s Holladay house will sit on nearly one acre. Previous tax records show the property boasts a horse barn and is considered equestrian property.

The master suite on the first floor will have 14-foot-high ceilings and a closet almost as big as the bedroom itself.

The bathroom will have separate sinks, a glass-enclosed shower in one corner and a long tub in the middle of the room. A door off the bathroom will lead to a walled-off outdoor terrace with a hot tub.

On the second floor, directly above the massive closet, will be another closet of roughly equal size and above the master bedroom a space simply dubbed "storage." That second floor will contain an exercise room and two bedrooms, one with its own separate "sitting room."

The kitchen will have two dishwashers and a large island in the center. A nearby pantry will hold a big freezer and an ice maker. A few feet away will rest a sunroom.

If there’s a gathering of the Romney clan, son Josh Romney won’t have to go far. His new home is being built next door on property that was bought at the same time as that of his father.
