|It's the Best Place to Live
Sugar House is such a seamless area of older residential homes and tree-lined streets, it is easy to drive from one neighborhood
to the next without being aware of a change. But residents know there are definite boundaries. Take the Harvard/Yale
neighborhood, for example. Out-of-towners driving north on 1900 East might not immediately recognize the change as they cross
1300 South, but the street is a definite boundary that is evident when comparing real estate prices. Harvard/Yale, between 800
South and 1300 South, has the highest per-foot housing prices in the Sugar House area, and some of the highest anywhere
outside of Park City. Cross 1300 East heading west, and the prices drop with the elevation. Click on the names in the map
below for a taste of the various neighborhoods that make up the greater Sugar House area. For a quicker, down-and-dirty look
at the neighborhoods, I have also included a very brief synopsis of each.
Harvard/Yale: Some of the streets from 1300 East to 1500 East are lined with giant mansion that sell in the multiple
millions. Above 1500 East, the houses are smaller. Tudors and two-stories are common in Harvard/Yale, as are beautiful
Sycamore trees. The cheapest homes start in the mid $300's.
Upper Sugar House: This area is bounded by 1300 South, 2100 South, 1300 East and Foothill Boulevard. The area
between 1300 East and 1500 East was built between the 1920s and World War II, while the area above 1500 East has a lot of
post-WWII houses. The quaint shopping area around 15th & 15th and the bigger Foothill Village are the main business districts.
Prices start at around $250,000
Lower Sugar House: This is the original "Sugar House," though the nickname has expanded to any neighborhood
within a mile or so of Sugar House park. Most houses were built between 1900 and 1930, the streets are lined with beautiful
mature trees, and it has a thriving business district along 2100 South. Most homes here are below $300,000.
Oak Hills/St. Marys: This area lies above Foothill Boulevard between 800 South and 2100 South. Most of the homes
were built from the 1960s on. There are lots of spacious ramblers in this neighborhood, with big bedrooms, big lots and high
walkout basements. Dated ramblers bring more than $400,000.
9th & 9th: This area is a lot like Lower Sugar House. It rates its own nickname because of the eclectic little business
district centered around 900 South and 900 East. A great restaurant, Mazza, just opened its second branch there.
Prices start in the mid-$200's.
Country Club: Big, grand houses built along the golf courses of the Salt Lake Country Club. It has the panache of
Harvard/Yale, with bigger, newer homes. $400,000 and up on the best streets.
Highland Park: Just across I-80 from Upper Sugar House, there isn't a whole lot of difference in the houses. They were
built at the same time, the trees were planted at the same time, and the schools were built about the same time. Price-wise, it's
just a little less expensive. Average price is in the high $200s.
