Welcome to the Ballard House. Originally owned by Melvin Ballard who became a member of the quorum of the twelve apostles after the death of Joseph F. Smith. Many of the historic aspects of the home have been preserved such as the original Batch Elder fireplace in the main living room. Original oak floors and molding run throughout the home. Although the charm of a 1920’s Federal Heights Bungalow remains there have been many modern updates. No need to worry about 100-year-old plumbing or sewer, as these both have been replaced within the last several years. The kitchen has been remodeled with granite counter tops, oak cabinets, and stainless-steel appliances. The basement boasts tall ceilings, open floor plan and an abundance of storage. A rare feature given the age and location of the home. A two-car garage and a private deep driveway allow for ample parking. Plenty of space for backyard entertaining with a covered back porch and fully fenced back yard. Within walking distance to the University of Utah, Reservoir Park, local schools and several restaurants and shops.
