Vacation residence, parcels of surrounding property hit the market at $55 million
You know, if a group went in together and bought this place, it would make a
sweet time-share arrangement!
You would buy these kinds of things too if you were a billionaire....My question is, do the cars come with the home :)
This guy is the Citizen Kane of Utah.
So now I am a liberal and political propogandist--wow. Why not turn his small
country home into a Ronald McDonald house to help those people. His new place
in Driggs is just down the road from our family farm and we do not need our
valley torn up and built up with McMansions because people like to come and fish
two weeks a year.
I guess Park city is no longer the place to be. With a little over 8,000 people
it has over 1500 homes on the market now.
Jon and Karen Huntsman are ANGELS. Our son was treated for cancer at their
institute and it is an amazing place. We will never forget the experience!They have given (Philanthropy) in a "first class" manner, treated others
with "first class" dignity, and deserve nothing but our gratitude and
admiration.Too bad there are not more people in this world like
them. Thank you Jon and Karen!!!
Good luck Mr. Huntsman. You are a good man. Thank you for your example
of industry, wealth, genrousity and kindness. You are a worthy American role
model. Thank you.
Yeah flatlander - you no good liberal. Shame on you and your fellow libs. You
guys are heck bent on destroying the family unit and brainwashing small
children. Please stay away from Deseret News posts.You probably like to
watch the final scene of Old Yeller over and over again, and laugh while you do
it. Shame on you for injecting political propaganda into this chain!!!!
It is his business from his hard work. Good for him!He earned it. Now, on
the other hand probably not the best article in our economic times. People
don't want to see how the others live when we are not as fortunate. Jealousy? a
little, bad timing sorry.
THANK YOU! Anyone who takes the time to read about Jon Huntsman, Sr.'s humble
start in life will know that wealth came to him as he and his wife GAVE to so
many others. And I wouldn't be surprised at all if this house has a buyer even
as we speak.
Jon Huntsman built a cement plant after a 1988 devasted the country of Armenia
(my maternal ancestors), and paid for the construction of a new school, sports
complex, and 12 four story apartment complexes. Provided a 10 million dollar no
interest loan. He provided reading glasses for every man, woman, and child that
needed them in the same country. Funds two faculty positions and 13 student
schoralships for Armenians at Utah State Univsersity. Founded a cancer center in
Armenia. Earned the country's highest award – The Medal of Honor. Gave
150 million dollars to establish the Huntsman Cancer Institute. Gave 10 million
dollars to the University of Utah. He and his wife, Karen, are the parents of
nine children and grandparents to 55. Yep, he's a real loser.
If Obama and Congress would give me some "Cash for Clunker HOUSES" money - say,
$54,800,000 - for my Clunker House, I'd move in tomorrow!
I think the home looks beautiful. OK I admit it...I wish it were mine. However,
on the other hand I would hate to have to clean it!
Using one's immense wealth to build an empire of sleaze & pornography (i.e. Hugh
Hefner) is a disgusting use of wealth. The Huntsman family, on the other hand,
has given much of their time and money to charity and cancer research.
"flatlander | 7:58 a.m. Aug. 4, 2009 What a disgusting use of wealth to

river/lake better so try to dump it on the market.""flatlander",
please level with us.....you voted for Obama, didn't you?
The carpet is just a style you're not accustomed to. I wouldn't use it in my
home - it's quite appropriate and beautifully appointed in this log styled
mansion. Good luck to the Huntsman's and their remarkable efforts in the fight
against cancer - a devastating disease. Good news indeed! And thanks Des News
for reporting it - very appropriate local news story - quite like other
significant properties they're reported in the past year or so.
You'd think the man could get some nice carpet for that home. It is the most
tacky carpet I've ever seen.
This home would sit on the market for a very long time at even $10 million...
Des News fell right into the real estate agents' scheme - provide free
advertising to try to boost interest and awareness.
This man has built a dynasty by hard smart work. Why do you people want to smear
someone that is a life long contributor to everyones health and welfare. He is
self made and a genuine Utah business man. I don't care what his personal wealth
is, his contributions to this state and the world are inmeasureable. I'm
personally just a retired very modest lower income person but I realize now that
I didn't take advantage of numerous opportunities in my life that could have
elevated me to a different financial position in life but I certainly don't
begrudge someone that had the drive to attain what I haven't. I am personnally
proud that Mr. Huntsman is a Utahn.
Park City is to Aspen, what St. George is to Palm Springs...3rd rate! It's a
"wealthy" man's paradise, just not a "rich" man's paradise. Let's face it, not
much goes on in Park City from March - November. In places like California and
New York, $55 million is no big deal, but Utah, You're kidding me, right?
Obviously, not even the Huntsman's are big fans of Park City!
Mr. Huntsman doesn't have prideful jealousy like Ms. flatlander. He has used
his wealth to provide many benefits and blessings to people in need and will
continue to do so. Go fish!
What a disgusting use of wealth to build what in effect is a private hotel for
one family and then like another river/lake better so try to dump it on the
It will be "for sale" for a long, long time!
The real estate commission will be sweet.
LOL, no you think? How many people have 50million laying around to buy an
oversized home? I think I'll wait till next year when homes bottom out to make
