Park City’s Old Town neighborhood is defined by its lasting roots and connection to the area’s rich mining history. Originally platted in the 19th century, Old Town homesites are quite small and many homes are built into the steep hillsides that hug both sides of the neighborhood. Old Town encompasses most of the area from Park City Mountain Resort to the Park City Municipal Golf Course and past the charmingly quaint City Park. Largely a result of ongoing efforts toward historical preservation, Old Town has retained its small, old-west mining town feel. Recent years have witnessed its growth into a vibrant, highly-walkable resort town center that features enticing shopping opportunities, renowned restaurants and a multitude of nightclubs. The spectacular buildings and storied past of Old Town’s legendary Historic District provide variation to area home styles and further reinforce the neighborhood’s authenticity.
A particularly well-known area within Old Town is the “Gold Coast,” the coveted ski-in/ski-out homes that back up onto the Town Lift runs of Park City Mountain Resort®. The cozy renovated miners’ cottages located near City Park, just off Park Avenue, are recognized as some of the best values in Old Town. There are a handful of apartments located in the upper levels of certain Main Street buildings, while Daly Avenue features a funky and eclectic mix of restored miners’ cottages, apartment buildings and renovated bungalows.
The lack of homesites bolsters prices and helps to ensure future value, while Old Town’s ideal location solidifies demand. There are few places in the world like the sparkling gem that is Old Town Park City.
