Draper—Hamlet Homes has announced the Grand Opening celebration of its newest transit-oriented, energy-efficient townhome community, Elgin Place in Draper City, Friday and Saturday, April 8 and 9. The Elgin Place opening will showcase a model home that features the three-story, three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath Denton floor plan, one of two floor plans available. The elegant, upscale brick-and-stucco townhome community is located on the southwest corner of 11900 South 700 East, just two blocks from a UTA TRAX Station.
“Elgin Place offers easy access to the Kimball’s Lane UTA TRAX Station, which is a short walk from the homeowner’s front door,” said John Aldous, President of Hamlet Homes. “We anticipate that these affordable, beautifully designed townhomes and the easy access to TRAX will be a great draw for homebuyers seeking a new home in Draper.”
Hamlet broke ground on Elgin Place, its 49th community, in December 2015 and has pre-sold three of the 30 townhomes, with prices starting at $269,990. Two floor plans, the Denton and the Hastings, offer a large two-car garage with a foyer and outdoor patio on the main floor. The second level features an open floor plan that provides a welcoming kitchen, dining and living room area that open onto a private deck. A spacious master bedroom with tray ceilings and a master bath, one or two secondary bedrooms with full bath, and a laundry room comprise the third level.
Adding further value are energy-efficient features such as a 93 percent energy-efficient furnace, 2 x 6-foot exterior walls, low-E windows, pre-wired for future solar panel installation, Energy Star® appliances, and a Passive Radon Abatement System.
For those who prefer to commute by car rather than light rail, Elgin Place is just about 1.5 miles to both the 11400 South and 12300 South on-ramps of I-15. Major retailers and restaurants are conveniently located at the Draper Peaks Shopping Center, South Towne Mall and many others, all within a two-mile radius of the community.
Homeowners who enjoy the outdoors have a myriad of nearby recreational opportunities to choose from: four major ski areas via Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons; hiking, horseback riding and cycling trails at Draper’s more than 35 parks and 80+ miles of maintained trails, most notably the 102-acre Corner Canyon Regional Park, and a myriad of nearby parks and golf courses. The 15-acre Mehraban Wetlands Park featuring fishing ponds and walking trails is just two blocks east of Elgin Park. Nearby schools include Corner Canyon High School, Draper Elementary School and Draper Park Middle School as well as Juan Diego Catholic High School and St. John the Baptist Elementary and Middle Schools, both of which are just three blocks away.
