Neighborhood Highlight: 15th & 15th
The 15th & 15th neighborhood sits just over 3 miles away (a little to the east, a little to the south) from downtown SLC, making it as ideally located as it is punctuated by charming homes and inviting front yards. It’s a walkable, mixed community that has proven success in the coexistence of homes and small businesses, and it happens to be one of our favorite spots on the Salt Lake Valley map.
About the Neighborhood
The idyllic streets of 15th & 15th seem something you might expect to find on the pages of a storybook: lined with massive maple trees, the roads are often shaded in the summer months, and come fall, things begin to look utterly pastoral. The area is located within walking distance of plenty of local restaurants, thanks largely to the fact that 15th & 15th has its own bustling hub…a wee “main street” of sorts that’s home to some of our city’s favorite (and thriving) local businesses. King’s English—a quaint and well-stocked bookstore opened in 1977—is a charming staple in our city, and a Sunday wandering the aisles here is one well spent. Also located on the same, small block is Caputo’s Market & Deli (best sandos and cheeses around), Finca (delicious tapas and wine on a lovely patio), Tulie Bakery (sigh...the olive oil cake), Casot (wine bar with a fab selection), Mazza (Middle Eastern food, done right), Sweetaly Gelato (well worth the visit), and 15th Street Gallery (for a day of contemporary fine art). Within a short walk or drive, you’ll also find yourself at Emigration Market, Emigration Cafe, and Nomad East. See? Ideal neighborhood.
15th & 15th Homes
Around here, you’ll find bungalows on bungalows (with some Tudors thrown in for good measure), many built in the ‘40s and ‘50s. There’s no shortage of charm in this neighborhood, to be sure. The streets feel friendly and welcoming, and tidy, manicured yards serve as the entry point to cozy porches. There are plenty of remodels in the area, mostly lending themselves to clean, modern interiors with all the brick charisma maintained outside (there are also some tasteful additions to be found as well). Buyers can expect to pay a bit more here—on average, somewhere between $600k and $1M (with a few homes falling on either side of the spectrum). A look at the last 6 months shows an average price per square foot currently hovering around $362, but for those in the market at this range, it’s a worthwhile investment for the kind of character and convenience you’d be hard-pressed to find elsewhere.
