Let me guess—you’re looking at homes in Salt Lake City, but there are too many different neighborhoods, builders and styles to know where to start. Am I right? We suggest taking one slice of the pie at a time. Begin by checking out the east side of the valley, where Ivory Homes has built a number of beautiful communities. Here’s a guide that will help you become familiar with these areas.

Sugar House:
What a quaint, historical and charming area! Many of the homes in this neighborhood are highly sought-after, but are very old, which as we all know requires a lot of maintenance and often replacement of expensive systems in the home (not to mention the possibility for mold, lead paint and bad insulation, etc). That’s what is so exciting about Ivory’s Crandall Cove development in Sugarhouse: buyers not only get the mature and highly-valued neighborhood, but a brand new, gorgeous Ivory home that shares the timeless architecture of the surrounding area as well!

Murray:
Everyone I’ve talked to who lives in Murray—especially on the east side—wants to stay in Murray, because it’s a great city! They have their own school district, police force, power company and even library system, which are all excellent. Nearby there are endless opportunities for shopping, eating out, exercise and recreation. Out of all the neighborhoods in the valley, Murray residents enjoy some of the quickest access to both I-15 and I-215, getting them where they need to go in a flash. Ivory is currently offering a brand new neighborhood in this fabulous city called Oxford Creek, as well as some individual home sites for buyers to build one of Ivory’s designs or a custom home.

Holladay:
This is a lovely area that’s close to the mountains, full of mature trees and endowed with natural flowing creeks that crease its landscape. It sits close to Interstate 215, which then conveniently connects you to I-80 or I-15, making travel a cinch. Everything you need is within just a few minutes of home. And the Cottonwood Mall is being rebuilt to include homes, office space, specialty shops, restaurants, a movie theater and plaza. Ivory’s Foxwood and Holladay Glen are two excellent communities that are a must see.

Draper:
We’ve all seen how this city has boomed in the last 20 years, and it’s not hard to see why. There has been excellent residential and commercial development, there’s the beautiful backdrop of mountains to the east, and great access to freeways, canyon recreation and so much more. People are flocking to this relatively young city for its vibrancy and activity. Ivory Homes has two stunningly beautiful neighborhoods within Draper: Valle di Villa, coveted land in a Club Ivory community with amazing views of the valley, andBellevue, one of the top selling neighborhoods in the city for its elegance, affordability and family-oriented feel.

Sandy:
Not as new as Draper and not as old as Sugarhouse, Sandy resides comfortably in the middle ground (geographically and metaphorically). The city fits a wide variety of lifestyles, providing an abundance of recreation, business opportunities, excellent schools and shopping venues. It offers great proximity to a number of first-rate golf courses and the many famous ski resorts of Utah. Choose from three diverse communities: Pepperwood Creek, a luxurious Club Ivory community set up against the mountain;Oakwood Cove, an exciting new development closer to I-15; and Paradise Valley, a pristine grouping of large home sites in a beautiful, serene neighborhood.

Obviously you were right about the abundance of options for homes in Salt Lake City, and that’s a good thing! Even looking at the east side of the valley alone, there are many exceptional Ivory neighborhoods that could be just right for you and your family.
