New Home Developments in American Fork are Perfect for Growing Families
If you are in the market for a new house, one of the most important features to consider is location. Your ideal home will be in a place that offers convenient access to work, school and play.
Rockwell Ranch by McArthur Homes is a new home community under construction in north-central Utah County — a community situated near major travel routes, world-class shopping, top-tier education, breathtaking scenery and exciting outdoor recreation.
Get There on Time
The Interstate 15 corridor runs along the southwest border of American Fork and is just four minutes away from Rockwell Ranch. This provides convenient northbound access to Salt Lake City and quick southbound commutes to Provo. The entire region is home to major centers of industry and commerce, and the ease of travel is enhanced by the Diverging Diamond Interchange — a marvel of urban engineering that manages the convergence of I-15 and Pioneer Crossing.
Ride the Rails
Residents of American Fork who do not want to drive to work can skip the hassle and take the train. The FrontRunner commuter rail system is a bicycle-friendly passenger train that runs an 89-mile stretch from Provo to Ogden. It makes a total of 16 stops in between both locations, and all are at stations located adjacent to some of the most popular destinations in the region. This amenity is perfect for students, entrepreneurs and weekend shoppers who prefer not to drive.
Choose from the Best
The shopping destinations along this stretch of the I-15 corridor are vast, and offer the finest in clothing, jewelry, electronics, furniture, housewares and much more. New developments in American Fork are located near dozens of these retail stores. In just a quick afternoon trip, residents of Rockwell Ranch can find everything they need for home decor, fashion, recreation and more.
If members of your household are considering higher education, American Fork is in proximity to an array of respected two- and four-year institutions. Notably, Brigham Young University is a mere 23 minutes south and Utah Valley University is just 11 minutes away in Orem. Meanwhile, a wide selection of colleges, private universities and trade schools offering instruction in computer science, technical trades and fine arts are located across the region.
Utah is renowned for its incredible scenery and outdoor recreation. You can take it all in on an afternoon drive along the Alpine Loop Scenic Byway which connects American Fork Canyon and Provo Canyon. Families with adventuresome kids can spend an entire day exploring the wonders of Discovery Park, which is just 10 minutes away. The newly redesigned facility offers a wide variety of obstacle courses, mazes, swing sets and more!
