Although we are sad to be leaving, we are excited for you to have an opportunity to experience this incredible townhome and neighborhood! We bought the house as its first owners in 2009 and have loved the time we have spent there. What we have loved most perhaps about our townhome is its spacious feel. The ceiling of the main living room extends up to the ceiling of the second floor and with windows both above and below, there is an enormous amount of light that fills the room and makes you feel almost as if you were outside. We also liked the fact the kitchen/dining area was separated from the living room. Ivory Homes builds quality homes and in the time we have lived in the house, we have had no major issues with the home whatsoever. A fantastic aspect of the home is Ivory’s sound-reduction construction between units. There are no sound issues between our townhome and the one adjacent. We have been unable to hear their family and they have been unable to hear ours.
The physical aspects of the townhome are pretty apparent but what has made our living in the home even more spectacular has been the many awesome advantages that have come with the neighborhood and the area. Included in the HOA fees is access for the whole family to Ivory Ridge’s Tennis Club. The clubhouse, which is located right across the street, boasts tennis courts, three swimming pools (including two children’s pools), an exercise and weight-lifting room, as well as access to the clubhouse’s event room for a very minimal cost per night. All of this is included in the Ivory Ridge’s club membership. The event room has a fireplace, large flat screen televisions, tables, chairs, and commercial kitchen amenities in a separate, large kitchen area. We have used this event room multiple times for birthday and other parties. The pool area also has a large grassy area which can be used by members for parties or barbecues. All landscape and yard-care services are included with the HOA which has been very nice. HOA fees also go to maintain the two parks in the neighborhood.
The location is also ideal for commuters. I-15 access is extremely quick; all you have to do is hop on Timpanogos Highway and then you’re to I-15 in a matter of minutes. The location is also within minutes of Adobe and just down the street from the new Xactware facility which is under construction. The new NSA facility is approximately fifteen minutes away thanks to the newly constructed 2100 North highway in Lehi. American Fork’s Meadows Shopping Center, the Outlets at Traverse, and Thanksgiving Point are very close as well for quick access to shopping, restaurants, and movie theaters. Ready and convenient access to American Fork Canyon provides locations for camping, hiking, fishing, four-wheeling, and other outdoor recreational activities. Utah Lake lies a near twenty minutes away for boating, water-skiing, and fun out on the lake. There are also multiple different ski resorts within an hour’s drive. For those unfamiliar with the area, travel time to downtown Salt Lake City is approximately 20-30 minutes depending on traffic. We really love the location though because even though these various areas are all in close proximity, north Lehi continues to maintain a somewhat rural feel with large, undeveloped fields; farmland; and horse pastures.
The best parts of the location by far however are surely the neighborhood, the people, and the ward. The ward has townhomes and single-family homes so there is a good mix of families of different ages. The neighborhood is packed full of children of all ages. This was something we really wanted for our children. The ward is super friendly and many of our neighbors have become great friends. The side of our townhome faces a large grassy area with a playground. Every night, the adults mingle together out at the park while all of the children play on the playground and grass. It is so nice to be able to walk out the back door and be at a park. The neighborhood is very open and social with many different ward and other non-denominational neighborhood activities occurring throughout the year. The atmosphere is incredible!
