I love the lifestyle that Salt Lake City affords. Whether it is cultural activities or outdoor recreation that you seek, our area provides the best in all respects. I have put together some brief descriptions of some of the more popular neighborhoods.
ARCADIA HEIGHTS: (North East Valley Map) Homes with striking views of the valley below and the mountains and canyons above best describe the homes of Arcadia Heights. Located east of Foothill Boulevard, between 1865 South and the city limits, these homes assume a certain wholesomeness and warmth in traditional abodes.
ARLINGTON HILLS: (North East Valley Map) High on the hill, most University of Utah fans, avid or otherwise, are familiar with this neighborhood. Its close proximity to the University and downtown Salt Lake and its fine views of the Wasatch Mountains make this community extremely appealing. With easy access to the foothill bike and hiking trails, quality schools, and a wide variety of homes, this friendly atmosphere can't be beat. Located above 11th Avenue to Terrace Hills Drive, this is bench living at its finest.
AVENUES & UPPER AVENUES: (North East Valley Map) The Avenues are really two neighborhoods. The upper boundary is 11th Avenue, which offers one of the most scenic vistas in the city. The original lower Avenues, located from South Temple to 11th Avenue and A Street to Virginia Street, is home to many of the city's finest artists, writers, musicians, and University professors. It is one of the most politically liberal districts in the state. The Upper Avenues (12th Ave. to 18th Ave.) has spacious suburban homes with commanding views of the valley. Great schools, close proximity to downtown Salt Lake, the University of Utah, hospitals and shopping provides home buyers with a city lifestyle that all can appreciate.
BOUNTIFUL: (North of Salt Lake Valley) The close proximity to downtown Salt Lake-only 15 miles to the south-and Ogden, only 25 miles to the north, makes Bountiful a perfect community for those who commute in either direction. Views of the Great Salt Lake, Antelope Island, and close proximity to our international airport makes this a desirable area.
CANYON RIM: (North East Valley Map) Canyon Rim, referred by some as the gateway to Parley's Canyon, is bound on the north and east by I-215, on the south by 3300 South, and on the west by 2000 East. A convenient location with easy access to freeways, quiet parks, and quality schools.

Located between 1700 and 2415 East and 2100 South to Interstate 80.
