It’s summer, which means that sprinklers are on, vacation memories are being made, and the home market is hopping. And right in the middle of it all is this Handsome Little Devil of a House on Redondo Avenue. And it also happens to be for sale.
For well under $500k, you can get 4 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a kitchen that begs for you to make a gourmet brunch with fresh-squeezed OJ. If you want an updated, well-designed floor plan with a larger than average dining room, and in this area, it does not get better than this bright bungalow.
When you walk into a home that is meant to be yours, you’ll just know. Maybe it’s the way the kitchen faces the yard, or the dining table reminds you of your mom’s when you were five. Perhaps it’s the perfect mix of price, neighborhood and the way the tree grows in the backyard. You can’t put your finger on it. But it’s yours.
This house embraces you the moment you enter. Within 3 seconds of entering, you feel light and comfortable. It’s hard to pinpoint the exact thing that makes you want to buy a particular home. It’s a collection of many things probably. And this home collects it in spades.
As far as community is concerned, if you like your music live, your clothes from small boutiques, and a great local community-look no further than Sugar House. Close to Dilworth Elementary, and Highland High School, residents here move for the life-style they want, and stay for the friendly neighbors. This neighborhood also offers the presence of the six more important things in life— great places to eat, independent boutiques, live music, a tech-savvy population great for job-growth, and the presence of offbeat people. It scores well on an energy that some people really thrive off of, and that makes it alluring.
It might not be as obvious that Salt Lake has the kind of independent ethos that you find in larger cities like San Francisco, but it’s certainly here. A number of chefs have moved to Salt Lake and the surrounding areas to open up great restaurants and bars, and that certainly speaks to the independent feel that the city has. And it’s safe to say that Sugar House is in the center of it all. The city also has a thriving art scene and a long history of great live music. It’s a large community built on smaller off-shoots.
It offers everything else that a true Utah resident should look for. It’s close to the ski slopes. It’s a hop, skip, and a jump away from downtown, SLC. You can visit to Hogle Zoo, and then on hop on your bike for a ride to Emigration Canyon where you can eat at the famous Ruth’s Diner. Don’t forget to go shopping in Park City, which is only 30 minutes away.
This eclectic enclave boasts some of the state’s most lauded food trucks and farmer’s markets, a booming arts scene and one of the largest creative class communities in the country, and whoever buys this house will be in the middle of it all.
