Nestled in the mountains that surround Park City, the Pinebrook neighborhood is truly one of the area’s residential gems. Just West of Kimball Junction, Pinebrook is attractive to commuters while remaining within Summit County limits.
Trail heads, bike paths and a collection of attractive shops and restaurants make this a convenient and lively area to call home. For the home shopper there is a unique assortment of options. Lower Pinebrook offers a nice selection of townhomes and twin villas while upper Pinebrook has single family homes with ample outdoor space. The market in this area is very stable, and 2015 real estate stats show Pinebrook had among the highest number of increases in home sales.
There isn’t much that you can’t find outside of Quarry Village. Here sits the quietest grocery store around, which is a big plus during the Sundance Film Festival and major Holiday weeks. There are wonderful furniture stores and a specialty running store complete with coffee shop and more.
An eclectic mix of restaurants should appeal to all appetites. Family friendly Billy Blanco’s puts a fresh twist on Mexican cuisine, O’Shucks Restaurant and Ahh Sushi are great places for burgers, cold beer and sushi and they have live music at least twice a week. For a morning on the go, Park City Bread and Bagel can’t be beat.
Sports Around Every Corner
The history of Pinebrook is steeped in winter sports. Back in the 1930s and 1940s the Ecker Hill area was known for ski jump competitions. In fact, there is a neighborhood monument that honors the successes and tragedies of the jumpers. Another sport began in the 1960’s: local four-wheel drive hill climb competitions.
Pinebrook continues to attract a sporty population. Today the area is a mecca for yoga practitioners, hikers, bikers and snow shoe enthusiasts. Located next to the winter hot spot, Gorgoza Park, a sledding hill for all ages and abilities, there is never a shortage of fun activities. The Ecker Hill Aquatic Center is also close by and is open year round.
The Pinebrook neighborhood provides the widest range of education opportunities in the area. There are a number of popular preschools as well as the private Park City Day School. Public elementary schools, Parley’s Park, Jeremy Ranch and the charter Weilenmann School of Discovery are all very close by. Easy access to Highway 80 provides a number of other specialty programs in the Salt Lake Valley.
