Sugar House Real Estate

Overall, Sugar House has a good mix of real estate options, from single-family houses to condos, and from newly-remodeled houses to more modest homes. You may pay a little bit more for a home here than you would for the same size home in a suburb of the Salt Lake Valley, but the location and community are worth it.

The Locals

With a number of high-performing public schools, countless parks, and tree-lined streets with sidewalks, Sugar House is a great match for those who’d like a tight-knit community where they can enjoy a more suburban living experience.

Our Local Tip: Did you know? Sugar House’s name comes from the attempt made by the pioneers to farm sugar beets in the area.

Parks & Nature

If you love a good park, you’ll love Sugar House. It has a wide selection of outdoor spaces, including Fairmont Park, Laird Park, Dillworth Park, Hidden Hollow Nature Preserve, Miller Bird Refuge, Forest Dale Golf Course, and Wasatch Hollow Reserve. Of course, there is also the much-loved Sugar House Park, which is full of rolling hills and wide-open space to enjoy. The loop around the park is perfect for walkers, joggers, and cyclists. It also features two playgrounds, amphitheaters, basketball courts, soccer fields, and Parley’s Creek. In the winter, residents sled down the many hills until the snow has melted.

Arts & Culture

Utah artists are celebrated year-round at Local Colors of Utah, an art gallery dedicated to local painters, sculptors, and creators of all kinds. Head over to Tower Theater to catch unique indie films and attend local events, or keep an eye out for the community events held throughout the year, including the Farmers’ Market at Fairmont Park.


Salt Lake School District is an open district, so you can apply to the schools you like if you live in the area. All of the local public schools in the Sugar House area are high-performing, including Bonneville, Unita, Beacon Heights, and Dillworth.

Salt Lake School for the Performing Arts is a public charter school for Grades 9 to 12 for students who are passionate about the performing arts: music, dance, theater, and film. There are no auditions and no tuition, so all interested students can attend.

Private Schools here include JE Cosgriff Memorial Catholic School, Montessori Community School, Garfield Academy, Rowland Hall (Pre-K-12), and The McGillis School (K-6).

Carmen B. Pingree Autism Center of Learning is a leading autism program for children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder.


Much of Sugar House’s locally-owned stores can be found along 1100 East, between 900 South and 2100 South. Sugar House Shopping Center, located just south of there, has a mix of big-box retail stores including Whole Foods, Barnes and Noble, and Nordstrom Rack, as well as a few other Utah-owned businesses.


Whether you’re looking for a brunch spot, a place to grab a coffee, or a dinner out, you’ll most likely find yourself at one of the many restaurants and cafes around the 2100 South and Highland Drive area, including options in the Sugar House Shopping Center. We recommend stopping at Mazza on 9th and 9th for lunch or dinner anytime!

Getting Around

Located right next to the freeway and just minutes to Downtown or the University of Utah, Sugar House is very accessible for commuters. It’s also quite a walkable neighborhood with access to bus routes and the TRAX light rail system.

What Sugar House community suits you best? Here’s what we love about each of them:

This is where you’ll find all of Sugar House’s most unique businesses, restaurants, and offices. The vibrant community offers everything within walking distance (including a fall street fair) and is a favorite among homebuyers looking for a unique, walkable community to call home.

Gilmer Park is a historic community developed by the Gilmer family and home to the Garden Park Ward. The homes here consist of high-end luxury homes and estates, many of which are surrounded by wooded areas.

This community is home to many of the professionals and doctors who work at the University of Utah. The houses here were built in the 1920s and ‘30s in the English Tudor style. Living here provides residents with quick access to many of the public and private school in the area.

If you’re looking for a community similar to 9th and 9th, this is the place. This neighborhood offers the same walkability and sense of community, but is smaller and has fewer local businesses.

Bonneville is perfect for those who want a diverse community with good public schools. The homes here tend to be on the smaller side, but they typically sit on classic tree-lined streets that residents love.

This community borders the Salt Lake Country Club. The homes here are extravagant and typically sit on larger lots. Since the community isn’t located on a hill, it’s easy for residents to bike or walk to everything Sugar House has to offer.

Just south of the freeway, the modest Highland Park neighborhood is a bit quieter as it is slightly removed from the hustle and bustle of Sugar House’s commercial area. It offers the same great access to the area’s amenities as its neighboring communities and features smaller, older homes.
