A charming, small city resting against the Wasatch Front, Alpine has a population of 10,361 that is rising, much like most of the Salt Lake area. The only other cities that border it are Highland and Cedar Hills, to the south (expanding on that – Alpine’s original name was Mountainville, thanks to the mesmerizing views). The city is decidedly residential, with an 84% home ownership rate and apartment complexes constituting only 4% of homes in the city.
About Alpine Utah Real Estate
Alpine takes pride in having more older homes than some of the expanding areas closer to Salt Lake City. 50.9% of homes were built between 1970 – 1999, with 26.7% being built in 2000 or later (many nearby cities feature 50% and even higher for post-2000 houses). This contributes to the city’s character, as does one other factor; a high concentration of creativity. Alpine has more artists, designers, writers, and media employees residing in it than 90% of neighborhoods in America. Alpine is also known for its abundance of invigorating yet soothing biking trails, which attract serious bikers from all over the state, but also suffice for a family day outside. For shopping and entertainment, a short trip south to Highland will lead you to the Town Center area.
As for education, children of Alpine families can attend Westfield Elementary, Alpine Elementary, Timberline Middle School, and Lone Peak High School. There is also the charter school Mountainville Academy, and the Renaissance Academy.
