Ideal-LIVING is excited to announce the first Ideal Cottage in the Rocky Mountains. Red Ledges exemplifies the ideal lifestyle through its outstanding amenities, incredible views, and stunning architecture. The Red Ledges Ideal Cottage was an easy first pick.
Small Town with Big Views
Red Ledges, a private Rocky Mountains community, sprawls across the Heber Valley about 20 minutes from Park City, UT. Red Ledges members have easy access to Salt Lake City and its international airport, a Delta hub. Both are a short 45-minute drive away. Year round outdoor sports and activities offered in and near Heber Valley attract vacationers and homebuyers from around the world. And, Red Ledges’ amenities, extensive activities’ program, and resort-style living exceed expectations. A something for everyone mentality delivers the ideal destination for all ages.
Mother Nature’s majesties are prevalent here. From the top of the region’s pristine and rugged mountains, down world-class slopes, and along miles of moderate to extreme biking and hiking trails, the region offers the most dramatic of terrestrial landscapes. The famed Deer Valley and Sundance ski resorts are only minutes from Red Ledges’ gates.
We Have a Winner
In June of this year, Expedia named nearby Heber City one of the 10 “Most Beautiful Towns in America”. And, where there’s excessive natural beauty, there’s fame, fortune, and the Olympics. Heber Valley was the site of the 2002 Winter Olympics and is the annual home of the world-renowned Sundance Film Festival.
Quite naturally, a vibrant culinary scene follows. The restaurant scene is as fine-dining and James Beard friendly as it is family-friendly. Heber Valley boasts both international and family dining options. On par with the community’s high standards, the Red Ledges Club employees the area’s most talented chefs.
A Place to Call Home
Essentially, as a Red Ledges home owner and member, one has access to everything: the excitement that accompanies an-uber popular international destination, and a scenic, private place to tuck away in.
Red Ledges started as the dream of a Fortune 500 CEO whose wife grew up in the Heber Valley. Hundreds of families purchased and built in Red Ledges in the first decade of development. It was an ecologically prudent development, offered exceptional amenities, and was located at the epicenter of outdoor fun. What more could a second homeowner ask for?
Did Someone Say Golf?
Yes, golfers are indeed in luck here. Not only is golf at the heart of the community, the 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Course was named the “Best New Private Course in America” in 2009 by Golf Magazine. Red Ledges is also the first ever 12-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Park.
Looking for other amenities? Start with the Cliff Drysdale Tennis School which offers programs by the U.S. Open doubles champion and ESPN commentator. Then, there’s the onsite equestrian program offering organized group and private trail rides, winter sleigh rides, and private horseback riding lessons. And, a third, but far from last on the amenities list is the Swim and Fitness Center. It welcomes a range of fitness opportunities and will include a resort-caliber pool and aquatic playground in 2019. The Red Ledges Club’s “Director of Fun” coordinates and curates all activities.
Red Ledges Real Estate
Real estate doesn’t stick around long here. The community’s master-planned options for retirees and vacationing families are unparalleled, and therefore coveted. Estate homesites, luxury cottages, villas, and club cabins don Red Ledges’ neighborhoods.
“We’ve seen some tremendous sales activity recently,” said Bill Houghton, Red Ledges’ Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Last year we had record sales. And home, cottage, and cabin sales in the first half of 2018 were more than double that of the first half of 2017. We have record construction activity. And, there’s been over 20,000 views of listings on RedLedges.com so far this year – so we’re poised to smash last year’s record.”
Rapid Growth and the Ideal Lifestyle
As a result, Red Ledges Realty, the community’s on-site sales office, has expanded both its staff and its offerings. Additionally, they recently established a partnership with ideal-LIVING.
“We are honored to have the 2018 Ideal Cottage in our community, and very proud that the cottage was built through the new Red Ledges Construction Company,” adds Houghton. “Park City is an easy getaway for folks seeking an escape from heat and humidity, or who want the best winter sports anywhere – and Red Ledges is a great four-season basecamp. The living is pretty ideal at Red Ledges!”
Red Ledges Ideal Cottage
The Ideal Cottage was designed to showcase the amazing views of Mount Timpanogos. And, that it does. With copious amounts of room in the cottages two-story social spaces, they feel as much like viewing areas as sitting rooms. And, three bedrooms (all including en suite baths), and a total of 3,269 square feet the Ideal Cottage is all the space vacationers need. Naturally, the cottage’s outdoor living spaces are also quite dreamy. Each has a fire pit to warm up chilly evenings.
“With all of the tremendous outdoor pursuits in and around Red Ledges, people want to establish roots in the area and to get out and have as much fun as soon as possible,“ states Houghton. “Our vacation-oriented cottages have made that simple.”
Red Ledges Construction Company

While he has extensive experience in development, operations, and construction management, land planning and green building technology are also in his wheel house.

McGuire and his family lived in southern California for 10 years before moving to Red Ledges. “The Heber Valley is a little piece of heaven on earth,” he said. “It offers a variety that my family and I have been missing…”
