Where Are The Best Places in Utah County to Buy Your First Home?

February 5, 2021

Buying your first home is an exciting time, and a great way to stay in step with the process is to start with a plan. First, decide exactly where you would like to live. Next, you can begin exploring the various neighborhoods in that area, and narrow down your choices to the places that best suit the needs of you and your family. Then, you can choose a builder to work with and soon be on your way to moving into your dream home.   

If you are looking for new homes in Utah County, there are two key areas to consider; Mapleton and Lehi. These communities are home to neighborhoods which are currently being built by McArthur Homes — one of the most respected new home builders in the state — known for world-class workmanship and service. These communities are located near outdoor recreation, entertainment, modern amenities, education and so much more.

Explore Utah County

This scenic expanse of breathtaking mountain views, lakeside parks and suburban growth stretches along the I-15 corridor. The community of Mapleton is nestled near the southern section of Utah Lake, just east of the Interstate between Springville and Spanish Fork. Meanwhile, Lehi is perched just beyond the northern tip of the lake near American Fork. Both communities are bordered to the east by the majestic Wasatch Mountain range and offer convenient access to outdoor adventure of every kind for every season.      

Discover Mapleton

Perched between the Spanish River and Hobble Creek, this burgeoning township is host to Harvest Park and Sunrise Ranch by McArthur Homes. These communities sit at the base of the Sierra Bonita Mountain foothills and are just about 11 miles southeast of Provo — allowing quick access to important regional centers for shopping, business and education. The area has a quaint, rural feel with plenty of local attractions for family fun.  

  • Harvest Park Townhomes are located a short walk away from Maple Ridge Elementary School. Each property includes a fenced backyard, two-car garage, three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths. 
  • Sunrise Ranch offers elevated views of the surrounding mountains and nearby access to an abundance of outdoor beauty. Properties range in size from 3,500 to 4,000 square feet and feature up to four bedrooms, open-concept floor plans and state-of-the-art amenities.   

Have a Look Near Lehi

A new, vibrant suburban community offers the daily spectacles of seeing the blazing sunrise over Mahogany Mountain and watching the serene sunset across Utah Lake. The area presents a unique balance between modern living and small-town bliss, with local access to world-class arts, entertainment and centers for education. Rockwell Ranch Townhomes in American Fork feature spacious floor plans with up to five bedrooms, a two-car garage and luxury amenities. The location allows convenient travel, situated just off  I-15 and a short stroll from the Frontrunner rail line.
