Mitt Romney Utah Ski Lodge on the Market for $5.25 Million

 

Mitt Romney 9,500 Square Foot Mansion in Deer Valley Utah

 

Former Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney's Family Ski Lodge Mansion located in Deer Valley Utah is currently on the market for $5.25 million according to the Huffington Post. As seen in the photograph to the right, this home is glowing and huge: some 9,500 square feet!

Looking around through some of the slide images, we caught a glimpse of many rooms with wall-to-wall carpeting, and just a few area rugs.  Here are some of the pieces we found with the Rug Rag Oriental Rug keyword tips and identification!

Seen Below:  A small area rug.  To determine country of origin, we would need to see additional photographs, although it's fairly safe to say this is a hand knotted rug. However, what we can see is repeating panels each with their own Mirab (unidirectional prayer design).  This type of rug would probably fall into the design category known as Saph Rugs.  Most commonly, these will be found to have even number of panels, often 6-12 side by side.  While not particuarly popular for modern production, many of the more commonly found rugs with this pattern would probably be from the pre-1920 vintage, and common country of weaving being Turkey.

Seen Below:  Beautiful log structure cabin with a great view...  And what appears to be a Navajo Style Carpet on the floor.  These carpets are typically feature few colors, a fair amount of negative space.  The structure is a flatweave meaning it has no pile and is very thin.
