Summit Park: A secluded community close to everything
Tim Maney, a Jess Reid – Christie’s International Real Estate Realtor, recently helped his sister Brenna settle into her new house in Summit Park. It’s obvious why Brenna lives in Park City, like her brother Tim; she loves skiing and loves to be in the mountains – like many people who call Park City home do. But we wanted to know why Brenna, a former Prospector resident, chose to buy real estate in the Summit Park community.
I love to ski. We love that Summit Park offers 7 ski resorts within 45 minutes of our door. Canyons is the closest with a 10-minute drive, Park City in 15 and Deer Valley in 20. On good days, it’s worth the 45 minutes over to Little or Big Cottonwood. The variety and proximity of all of these resorts makes for a good season.
Summit Park is a laid back neighborhood – everyone waves to each other; dogs and kids run free with little worries; and moose have the right of way. We have a neighborhood grocery store, a breakfast café called No Worries, which may be the best in all of Park City, restaurants and bars, shopping, a drycleaner, service stations – everything you need without going to town when town (Kimball Junction) is crazy. It’s more secluded than Prospector and more of a family community and with a newborn, it’s nice and quiet!
Have you taken advantage of any recreational activities nearby?
Of course! We hike, mountain bike, snowshoe, ski, and sled all from our front door. They have expanded the trail system in Summit Park, which is nice because there are trails to explore that link to the major trail systems in Park City.
What made you decide on Summit Park/Timberline out of all the neighborhoods in Park City?
The central location makes this neighborhood most attractive. You can be in Old Town or the University of Utah in just 20 minutes. I love being able to pick up friends and family that fly into the Salt Lake City International Airport and be home to our rustic mountain community in less than 30 minutes!
