As one of safest states in the US, Utah is known for its eco-friendly policies, its focus on outdoor adventures, and its community-oriented culture. While Utah is home to numerous athletes, as the surrounding terrain is ideal for training, it is also home to countless families and singles alike looking for an honest, safe environment.
With Utah’s dedication to maintaining wholesome values and creating a sustainable future, housing communities like Daybreak in South Jordan, Utah, are vastly growing in popularity.
Here are the top five reasons to consider moving to Utah’s South Jordan Daybreak Community:
Utah homes for sale in the Daybreak community are modeled after the TND, otherwise known as the traditional neighborhood development model. Unlike housing tracts where families are dependant upon a car to transport them to shopping centers, schools, parks, etc., the Daybreak community is built with convenience in mind. To decrease the community’s dependency on car travel, all homes within Daybreak are within a five-minute walk, jog, or bicycle ride of any amenity, such as parks, lakes, and shopping centers.
The community is divided into eight sectors known as villages: Founder’s Park, Eastlake Village, North Shore Village, Garden Park Village, Lake Village, Soda Row Village, South Station Village, and Creekside Village.
Eastlake Village is the premier neighborhood, as it offers the largest homes. North Shore Village is the most diverse neighborhood, both architecturally and culturally, while Garden Park Village is designed for the 55+ community.
Originally, Daybreak homes were built with Salt Lake City’s historical neighborhoods in mind, like Sugar House, Harvard-Yale areas, and The Avenues, all of which include large front porches and alley garages. While most of the homes favor the Colonial Revival, Craftsman, and Victorian styles, some of the newer models have a more modern flair, offering a wide variety of styles to community members.
Daybreak currently has three schools: Daybreak Elementary and Eastlake Elementary, both public K-6 schools, and a K-9 public charter school, Early Light Academy. The plan for the Daybreak community is to build additional schools as the community grows. Currently, middle school and high school students have the option to attend Copper Mountain Middle School and Herriman High School, both of which are state-of-the-art schools and are less than 10 minutes away from the community by car.
One of the purposes to building the Daybreak community was to provide residents with a more sustainable community. The area was built for recreational, outdoor activities, such as bike trails and hiking trails in the warmer months and cross-country skiing opportunities and snowshoeing in the winter months. Additionally, Daybreak has its very own fresh-water lake perfect for fishing, paddle boarding, and canoeing. Plus, all equipment can be rented at the lakeside rental shop. Likewise, each village also offers parks, tennis courts, swimming pools, and complete gyms.
Daybreak prides itself in its eco-friendly construction and practices. It was the first Utah community to adhere entirely to Energy Star standards. As such, all homes have been Energy Star certified. With the entire community designed with sustainability in mind, each homebuilder in the community offers different eco-friendly options, such as green construction, solar or thermal panels, renewable building materials, and high performance appliances. All Daybreak homes have fiber-optic connections, which are environmentally friendly. Additionally, on average, homes in Daybreak save more than 5,000 gallons of water per month.
Daybreak homes are ideal for those looking to live in a sustainable community that focuses on the health and well being of not only those in the community, but also of the environment as a whole.
