Johnny Carson is one of Deer Valley's newest homeowners. The Tonight Show star purchased a ski hideaway as a Valentine's Day gift for his wife, Alex.
Janet Robson-Olch, The Prudential Coleman real estate agent, said Johnny did purchase a house in American Flag, a particularly secluded part of the ski resort. The home is a "ski to, ski from" residence.According to Robson-Olch, the price of the home and adjacent lot and the size of the house, all published in USA Today, were inaccurate. "The Carsons have become friends of mine through this transaction, and I feel obligated to keep the details confidential," she said.
It seems the purchase really was a gift of love - it's reported Carson doesn't ski much, but his wife does.
