Discovery Ridge single family home

Park City is the best town ever. No really, it was literally voted “Best Town Ever” by Outside Magazine readers in 2013. Park City continues to be both an optimal hometown and vacation destination because we’ve never sacrificed the natural beauty of our surroundings. This will continue to be the case for Discovery Ridge, a new, 72-acre residential development.

Perched near the border of Salt Lake and Summit Counties, the new mountain homes will be no more than 15 minutes away from both Salt Lake City and Old Town Park City. Protecting the landscape while enjoying natural surroundings remains a top priority for Discovery Ridge. Its future residents will have access to all the extraordinary experiences that make Park City the absolute best mountain resort community.

Discovery Ridge’s plans consist of 97 homes, all including two-car garages. Of the 97 units, 43 will be single family homes built into the landscape’s natural wooded areas, and the remaining 54 properties will be townhomes. Thirty of the properties will be listed as deed restricted affordable housing. Deed restricted housing gives priority to the area’s essential service people, including firefighters, teachers, law enforcement, nurses, and others. This will help address the demand for more affordable housing opportunities for locals so they can live in the town where they work.

The scenic, booming environment of Park City, Utah offers residents continual excitement year round. With an excellent school district that is the envy of the state, world-renowned ski resorts, and countless winter and summer activities nearby, Discovery Ridge is set to provide its residents incredible proximity to an unbridled assortment of excitement and opportunity. The location is ideal for frequent business travelers who need quick access to Salt Lake City International Airport but don’t want to sacrifice the mountain lifestyle they love.

This development has placed outdoor living at the epicenter of its planning.
