Holy Moly, What a Place This Place Is!

Some homes are nice. Some are even special. But there are a select few homes that can only be coined divine. In Eureka, Utah, you’ll find one of those exact homes, and as luck would have it – right now, it’s on the market.

In the 1980s, a man named Ferrel moved his family to Eureka, Utah so he could show his children what freedom really was. Technology was advancing at the time, and with families being consumed by things like console games and other gadgets, Ferrel didn’t want his children falling victim to the rapidly changing times. So, he took them to a place where their imagination could run free.

Ferrel transformed his property into a miniature mining town, complete with a chapel, a miner’s home, storefronts, office space, and of course, a mine cart track leading to a miniature mining cave, which was made into a playhouse for his kids. Ferrel even designed his property to mimic Main Street, U.S.A. at Disneyland. How could you not be happy living here?

There’s Gold in Them There Hills

Originally built in 1903, the mine that sits behind the chapel and miner’s house is an imposing sight. The huge wood structure with its massive pullies and wheels is an ingenious work. However, it is currently fenced off for safety reasons.

The miner’s home/chapel features three bedrooms, two full baths, and five half-baths. There are also three fireplaces for dealing with Utah’s chilly winters. The chapel offers endless income possibilities with the current owners often renting it out for weddings and other events. It can also be used as an artist’s studio, a gallery, and more.

One of the chapel’s most inspiring features is its litany of stained-glass windows, each of which floods the interior space with multi-colored hues that slowly change throughout the day. Rich hardwood floors and premium wood accents and finishes lend the chapel a touch of Gold Rush-era rustic beauty.

The living space is traditionally adorned and warm and cozy. Wood wainscoting, exposed beam ceilings, wood burners, and brick walls provide the undeniable feel of old-time America. This home contains two living rooms, two family rooms, two kitchens, and a laundry room, so you won’t have any shortage of space for you to complete the home to your exact liking.

Incredible Property for an Incredible Home

This unbelievable property is backed by mountains – the same mountains from which gold and silver were once mined. The area around it is now residential, so you can take pride in owning the most magnificent and surreal home in town.

The property’s Main Street has a mining museum, a candy store, and the cabin once lived in by Porter Rockwell, the man who was nicknamed “the Destroying Angel of Mormondom,” and former bodyguard to Joseph Smith, the founder of the Latter-Day Saints.
