Daniels Area Real Estate | Heber City
A sense of tranquility and rusticity distinguishes the Daniels area from the more recently developed neighborhoods of the Heber Valley which have seen an explosion of new-build activity. Tucked barely a mile south of Heber’s busy city center, the Daniels area is also conveniently less than a 20 minute drive to the world-class summer and winter activities of Historic Park City with its shops and outlets, bars and restaurants, galleries and museums, and seasonal concert series.
While the Daniels area has experienced very considerable growth like the rest of Heber City over the past ten years, it has successfully maintained its rural, Old West character and charm despite the pressures of development surrounding it. In part that is a result of the restriction that homes be situated on a minimum of 5 acres, ensuring an extraordinary sense of space and privacy. Much open land remains available for residential development and would be well-suited for horse farms. Existing homes in the Daniels area are single family and vary in architectural style from traditional West to Victorian with some more modern designs. All share in the extraordinary expanse of the area, taking in valley land in every direction as well the surrounding Wasatch and Timpanogos Mountains. Often left unmentioned, but common to all neighborhoods in the Heber Valley, is the exceptional quality of the air – a fact taken for granted in the mountains but of issue in so many urban environments. Here the high mountain air is pure, clear – every day of the year. Another considerable attraction of the Daniels area is its proximity to Heber’s well-regarded public schools which include four K-4 elementary schools, Timpanogos Intermediary School for Grades 5-6, Rocky Mountain Middle School for Grades 7-8 and Wasatch High School. Younger students from the Daniels area are likely to attend the either the Old Mill Elementary School or the J.R. Smith Elementary School, both of which are approximately 3 miles away.
