Have you ever spent time with a puppy? The tail wagging, the wide eyes—they’re excited about everything! We ask because we recently found ourselves acting just like a pup when we toured this Suncrest two-story. The wagging started when we saw the address. Snow Blossom sits right near the Edelweiss trail and is well-known for its unmatched views. The address puts it at the top of the street where the property backs right up into the Corner Canyon corridor overlooking the Salt Lake Valley. Living here means you’ll see a variety of wildlife, including elk, deer, wild turkeys, and even eagles. The puppy toe taps increased when we toured the inside; the house is just two years young and is light, bright, and features windows all over. To be honest, however, we went into full, unrestrained wiggle mode when we actually saw those views for the first time! No matter which room you’re in, you can see why this home has us so amped up. The main level flows seamlessly and is wide open, featuring two multipurpose rooms—think dining room, living room, or an office—which really give you options to fit your lifestyle. The kitchen has double ovens, a gas cooktop, upgraded cabinets, and, best of all, easy access to nearly 300 square feet of covered deck to enhance your indoor/outdoor lifestyle. Upstairs boasts 4 large bedrooms, the laundry, and the primary suite with a magazine-worthy bathroom featuring a separate tub and shower, adult-height vanity with double sinks, and upgraded tile and surrounds. Can we talk about that horizontal railing that lines the stunning catwalk hallway? Wow. Downstairs features 9-foot ceilings (seriously, why don’t all homes have 9-foot ceilings?) and is fully finished with another bedroom, a full bathroom, and a walkout basement that delivers you to that fresh SunCrest air. Our favorite is the downstairs gathering area—kickoffs, movie marathons, and good old-fashioned game nights are calling. We went full Goldendoodle the first time we saw it. Will you?

📍16032 S Timber Brook Dr 🛏 5 , 🛁 3.5, 📐 2,701 ft.² , on 🌳. 14 acres. Offered at 💰635,000.

Remember when a neighborhood used to be a neighborhood? You know the kind where kids would play, neighbors would socialize, and you could forget about the problems of the world for just a moment because you still had your little neighborhood where you belonged? We think that still exists in SunCrest, and especially in Maple Hollow. This little section of SunCrest has an active trailhead, a communal park that’s often filled with games (Olly Olly Oxen Free!) or neighborhood gatherings, and picturesque vistas of both the mountains and the lake. This home sits squarely in that area, and it also has everything you need on the inside to live that pure life of yesteryear with all of today’s modern conveniences. First of all, it’s a corner lot, so you literally have your own not-so-little corner of paradise. The kitchen, which features beautiful light cabinets, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances, is right next to the dining room and a convenient main floor family room. Best of all, the sliding glass door delivers you to a BBQ-ready patio, swingset, raised garden beds, and a well-manicured, landscaped yard. Fire up the grill and break out the lawn darts—you’ll be spending a lot of time out in the yard just like you did when you were a kid. Upstairs, you’ll find 4 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The primary suite combines both style and practicality, offering essential features like dual vanities, a walk-in closet, and a separate shower and bathtub. The lower level is completely finished (no hard hat and hammer needed), featuring the home’s fifth bedroom, an additional full bathroom, and an expansive family room that’s ready for your new SunCrest Lifestyle. Will it become your personal movie theater, a gaming haven, or a cozy kid or guest retreat? You decide! Maple Hollow is still a true neighborhood, and this house gives you a chance to truly come home.

2022 Year in Review

By Scott Steadman / February 7, 2023 / 0 Comments

2022 Year in Review
It’s time for our annual “Year in Review” where we look at the past year in SunCrest Real Estate. 2022 started off much like 2021 with many homes receiving multiple, above asking price offers. As interest rates rose, the total number of homes listed and sold decreased and prices flattened. Overall, home price appreciation saw 13% year over year increase, and just over 103 real estate sales (SunCrest homes and SunCrest land) took place, and the new median price of a home in SunCrest climbed to $795,000.

103 total SunCrest properties (homes + land) sold

  • 90 homes
  • 79 single family homes
  • 16 of the 79 single family homes were new construction homes
  • 11 townhomes
  • 13 lots
Median days sales time: 21 days
Highest sold price: $1,910,000
Lowest sold price: $341,500
Median sales price: $795,000
Most active sales period: 3rd quarter The “Average” SunCrest Home Sold in 2022
We crunched the numbers. If you could put together an overall average of all SunCrest homes sold in 2022, here’s what that house would look like: Average Sold Price: $869,011
Average Price Per Square Foot: $229
Average Days on Market: 36
Year built: 2011
Beds: 4.62
Baths: 3.7
Acres: 0.22
Garage: 2.59
Finished Basement: 72% Our take
If you’re buying or selling, it’s always best to take a hands-on approach and assess each home for its own merits. Averages can also be misleading, as there are always wide exceptions to it-that’s how averages work, after all. Things like timing, condition, location, and quality all have an impact on buying and selling and you can get frustrated pretty easily if your home sale or purchase don’t seem to be fitting the “average” experience. Having a hyperlocal expert in your corner who knows how to spot out of average opportunities can help turn any transaction to your benefit. Read More

Draper City Surplus and SunCrest HOA land exchange

By Scott Steadman / December 7, 2022 / 0 Comments

Draper City held a public hearing and approved the surplus of two areas of City owned land behind the SunCrest OA tennis court and SunCrest OA salt storage in exchange for .07 acres of SunCrest OA property. This was step one and a future meeting will amend the subdivision plat to actually move property lines. These items will clear up an encroachment issue and will provide both Draper City and Suncrest HOA suitable parking areas. The SunCrest HOA has long needed additional parking and this resolution will provide  an area to do so.

More info: 
Area 1 (Green) – 0.18 acres of Parcel 34-09-479-026 owned by Draper City was surplussed and will be provided to Suncrest HOA.
Area 2 (Orange) – 0.07 acres of Parcel 34-09-479-025 owned by Suncrest HOA will be provided to Draper City. 
Area 3 (Yellow) – 70 square feet of Parcel 34-09-479-027 owned by Draper City was previously surplussed by Draper City Council via Resolution NO. 18-84 on December 4, 2018. This area will be shown in the upcoming Plat Amendment going to Suncrest HOA to rectify a slight encroachment of the tennis court.
Area 4 (Magenta) – 1,169 square feet of Parcel 34-09-479-026 owned by Draper City was surplussed and will be provided to Suncrest HOA to rectify an encroachment of the tennis court.

September SunCrest Market Update

New Developments in SunCrest? Check Out These 5 Areas and What We May Expect in the Coming Years

Draper City has adopted an “Open Space Master Plan” that helps shape the future of the city. We’ve been watching this process closely over the years to see what it means for SunCrest and for the city at large. Since Draper already has over 4500 acres of open space, it’s really become a jewel in Salt Lake Valley and as a result, SunCrest has risen to be one of the most treasured areas to live, work, and play.

So what does the future hold? Well, this plan was developed with the help of outside consultants, countless hours of input, open houses, and surveys and serves as the north star for the future of Draper City open space and development. Draper is going to continue to preserve areas of open space. As part of the overall plan, it did become clear that some parcels of land may have development. We thought we’d highlight five areas and bring you the inside scoop into what we may expect in the coming years.

Mercer Mountain Estates
This ~20 acre parcel sits next to the existing Hidden Canyon Estates area, and will provide some of the most pristine mountain and city views in SunCrest. This parcel, along with the Lakeview Heights parcel were part of an exchange involving a private owner and Draper City. There’s already an existing development agreement from 2015 that indicates there can be 50 lots and the minimum size of each must be at least .27 acres. This development will be in the SunCrest OA. Lakeview Heights
This ~20 acre parcel neighbors the current Maple Hollow subdivision and zoning allows for multi-unit density (think: townhomes, for example.) Entitled in 2015, the development agreement states there will be more than 160 units and will be required to set up their own Sub-HOA in addition to belonging to the SunCrest OA. Sequoia/Blue Bison Developments
This ~110 acre parcel was sold by Draper City to help recoup the costs of the City’s purchase of 2300 acres of SunCrest area land. This development borders the Highland/Alpine area and overlooks Utah County to the south. This area also lies within the SunCrest OA boundaries. The current density ranges from 30-50 single family units with potential for approximately 150 multi-family units. There’s still a lot to work out for developers-access, secondary access, and water shares will ultimately dictate what is eventually built here. Shoebox Property/Mountain Park Estates
At just over 80 acres, this area is heavily wooded by Gambel Oak and surrounded by the existing Tall Woods, Oak Vista, and Eagle Crest neighborhoods. This had been privately owned since before SunCrest was really “SunCrest”. The current zoning on the property allows for commercial uses. This area is not currently a part of the SunCrest OA, but back in 2018 there was a preliminary site plan that included a request to join. Draper City Owned Land
The city still owns nearly 8 acres of land surrounding the HOA clubhouse, pool, courts, and the SunCrest Community Clubhouse. This plan clears the way for the city to classify that land as “surplus” and sell it, should they ever decide to do so. While there are no immediate plans to do that, this may be an area to keep an eye on.

Open space is one of the features that makes it such a great place to live, and we’re glad to see Draper City has a plan to protect these open spaces. SunCrest is always evolving, and this plan gives us transparency into the next phase of our evolution. As we look toward the future, we can see that most development areas and maximum density is set, and although these potential developments will take years to happen (if at all) it’s the collective involvement of everyone that helps shape what SunCrest becomes. Whether you’re new or old to SunCrest, stay involved! Your voice and opinion can make a difference in what the area becomes. We’re going to keep our finger on the pulse of what’s happening so if you’d like to talk about how this new plan affects your plans to buy or sell (or move into a new development) we’re happy to share what we know.
