Keri Holland’s Complete Homebuying Guide for Park City

Park City is internationally renowned for its exquisiteness. Perfect powder? Check. Unparalleled views? Check. World-class resorts, spas, art galleries, and restaurants? Check again. Abundant natural beauty, a host of recreational activities, and a globally celebrated film festival? Oh yes.
Add extraordinary homes and an unsurpassable lifestyle to the list.

From graceful condos to splendid mansions — and from exceptional schools to an inviting, small-town ethos — Park City is as much of a coveted residence as it is a worldwide destination. Indeed, the public school system in Park City has been ranked in the leading 2% nationally, while in 2022, Time, citing Park City’s surplus of superb winter and summer adventures, named the Rocky Mountain enclave one of the World’s Greatest Places.

As such, property values in Park City appreciate brilliantly — so much they’re presently fifth in the United States. It’s no wonder: the Utah haven provides an exceptional quality of life set against one of the country’s most majestic backdrops.

It’s less a matter of why one would elect to live in Park City than where exactly. Deer Valley, The Canyons at Park City Mountain, Old Town, Mayflower Mountain — every neighborhood in this Utah wonderland possesses a distinct personality and bountiful amenities to offer.

Keri Holland of Summit Sotheby’s International Realty understands Park City real estate exceedingly well, from the most sought-after sanctuaries for skiers to the best walkable neighborhoods. Read on for her ultimate Park City home-buying guide and to garner a feel for each notable region.

Park City luxury homes

Velvaere at Mayflower

Park City’s newest ski resort community is the epitome of luxury, with First Residences slated for completion in the 2024 and ski runs to begin during winter season 2024/2025.. This mountainous resort-style community will provide a serene, sophisticated lifestyle with easy access to skiing and hiking trails where exploration awaits. The real estate scene here is thoughtfully designed and pristine, with stunning custom-built estates and cabins set against a landscape of rolling mountains.

Residents at Velvaere will enjoy top-notch conveniences and features, including a rooftop bar, a marketplace, pools and hot tub, full-service dining spots, and a state-of-the-art, holistic wellness center complete with world-class amenities like floatation pods, yoga studios, hyperbaric chambers, and much more. Not only that, but a private ski lift will give residents direct access to snowbound adventures whenever their hearts desire.

The Ascent at The Canyons at Park City Mountain

As the largest ski resort in the country, The Canyons at Park City Mountain offers an unmatched level of prestige and panoramic views. The endless mountain terrain here is perfect for alpine skiing, snowboarding, hiking, and mountain biking, with picture-perfect vistas at every turn. Nature-focused residents revel in an active lifestyle of adventure and elegance. 

Slated for completion early 2024, The Ascent Park City, a Tapestry Collection by Hilton, sets the gold standard for resort-style condo living, with the magnificent allure of the Park City valley and mountains out the windows and the appeal of adventure calling your name. The Ascent provides a true mountain oasis where luxury takes center stage, with easy access to a ski valet, hiking and biking trails, and Canyons Golf. There’s also a coffee bar and restaurant, a workout center, gear storage centers, outdoor pool and hot tub, and more for residents to enjoy. The Ascent is artfully designed to be your sanctuary of peace and paradise.

Old Town

Framed by impressively stunning mountains and overlooking Main Street’s gorgeous assortment of galleries and boutiques, Old Town is inarguably the heart and soul of Park City. 
With a walkability score of 74, the homes here in the “Historic District” are within an effortless stroll to the iconic bar, No Name Saloon, as well as Park City proper’s famed distilleries, upscale breweries, unique shops, and high-end restaurants.

Its real estate treasures are just as splendid; here, you will find chic, airy townhomes with contemporary touches, beautifully restored mining sheds-turned-mansions, and striking ski-in/ski-out properties — a boon for snow enthusiasts, given Old Town’s access to the slopes of Deer Valley and Park City Mountain Resort.


Sprawling open spaces, panoramic vistas of the Wasatch Mountains, and a genteel feel characterize the private, gated community of Park City’s Promontory.

Approximately 7,000 acres comprise its terrain, yet roughly 60% of it is devoted to maintaining its natural splendor. From golf courses to an equestrian center, Promontory residents enjoy the finest in mountain luxury — a term that could just as easily be used to describe the grand, dazzling homes within this district.

Although Promontory is divided into several unique neighborhoods, including Bison Bluffs, Aspen Camp, Deer Crossing, Painted Sky, and Signal Hill, homes here share a common theme: decadence.

The Aerie

Perched on Masonic Hill above Park City’s colorful and vibrant Main Street, The Aerie is a stone’s throw away from all the action of the resort town and yet separated just enough to give residents serenity and seclusion.

Mere minutes away from Park City’s famous ski resorts, the region presents jaw-dropping views, lush surroundings, and over a hundred acres of open space ripe for outdoor exploring. Diverse architectural wonders make up this hillside jewel, where you will find an alluring mix of modern and inspired, one-of-a-kind designs.

Lower Deer Valley

Lower Deer Valley is remarkable not just for its marvelous homes but also for its unbeatable location: the neighborhood is within driving or walking distance of several of Park City’s inimitable pleasures, from the picturesque charm found on Main Street to a bevy of trail systems.

Home to a host of distinct neighborhoods — including The Oakes, Nordic Village, Solamere, and Hidden Meadows — Lower Deer Valley offers lavish condominiums, eye-catching Park City vacation homes, and gorgeous single-family dwellings.

Willow Creek

With only 72 homes within its district, Willow Creek epitomizes a “tight-knit community.” 
The luxury homes in this subdivision possess a rustic but elegant appearance, with details designed to mirror nature’s beauty. Complete with various recreational activities, including tennis, basketball, volleyball, playing fields, and picnic pavilions, it’s an ideal Park City real estate option for families.

Jeremy Ranch

Established and aspiring golfers alike flock to Jeremy Ranch — an arrestingly attractive community that rests on an Arnold Palmer-designed private course. Undulating hills, snow-capped mountains, and unsullied, gem-green spaces are just a few of the views found in this Park City suburb, where families enjoy proximity to several of the region’s top schools, excellent trails, and luxury shopping.

Empire Pass

Park City is a plush mountain retreat in itself, but Empire Pass takes the concept to new heights.

Nestled in the uber-elite Deer Valley Resort community — which the impeccable Montage Deer Valley Residences call home — this district features sweeping alpine views and forests of towering evergreens. Empire Pass contains a multitude of real estate gems, including ski-in/ski-out estates, fashionable condominiums, and some of the most opulent townhomes in Park City.

Park Meadows

Tranquility is at the crux of this Park City community.

Situated north of Prospector and featuring deluxe single-family and vacation residences — as well as glamorous townhomes and posh Park City condominiums — Park Meadows is edged by Park City’s oldest, and perhaps grandest, golf course, as well as the esteemed Park Meadows Country Club. Verdant, wildlife-filled spaces surround the area, rendering it a first-class place for hiking, bicycling, and being at one with nature.
