Huntsville Utah, home to Snowbasin Ski Resort

Winter in Huntsville Utah, Ogden Valley

 

Huntsville Utah is the southernmost town in the Ogden Valley area, made of Liberty, Eden and Huntsville. Sometimes, this is referred to as the Nordic Valley, particularly the areas around Liberty. What distinguishes Huntsville from the other two is that it is the only incorporated municipality of the three towns. Huntsville was named after Jefferson Hunt, who first settled the area in 1860 with seven other families. The town was first incorporated in1903, disbanded six years later, then later reincorporated in 1924. The 2010 census reports 710 residents in the town limits of Huntsville.

 

Like most of Ogden Valley, Huntsville is known for recreational activities. The nearest resort is Snowbasin. The name denotes its renown as a destination for winter recreation. However, Snowbasin has the tag line of being a “sun valley resort” and has also been open for summers since 2004. During the 2002 Winter Olympic Games, Snowbasin was the venue for the men’s and women’s downhill, super G and combined races. Summer activities include biking and hiking. In between Snowbasin openings is the Huntsville Marathon held during the fall. Known as the “fastest” marathon in Utah for the speed of its track, the Hunstville Marathon starts in the Monte Cristo area, and runs a little over 26 miles ending at the Huntsville Town Park. Runners have two options, the full marathon or the half marathon of 13.1 miles. Additionally, Hunstville Utah is home to the Pineview Dam. Built in 1937, its primary purpose is to provide irrigation to the area, although it may be more known by its millions of visitors for recreational activities, which include boating, camping, fishing and water skiing. The view is pretty nice, too.

 

Now that you know a little something about the town, and may be sold on why it is a great place to live, let's talk Huntsville real estate. Like most of the towns in Ogden Valley, homes in Huntsville are mainly sold as vacation homes. However, homes in the Huntsville area tend to be a little more expensive than homes in other parts of the Valley in Eden and the Liberty/Nordic Valley area. For instance, a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom furnished condo in a lakeside development is currently listed for $229,000. Other condos in this same development, also furnished but with a third bathroom, are listed in the low to mid $300 thousands. (Compare this to 3 bedroom condos in Eden being sold at $179,000.)

 

Single family homes are also the most expensive in the region. However, if you are willing to purchase an older home and furnish it yourself, you can find them for less than some townhomes. For instance, a 4 bedroom 2 bathroom home built on East Aspen Circle in 1978 is currently listed for $179,900. However, if you want newer, larger and more luxurious, Huntsville does not disappoint. You can have a 5 bedroom 7 bathroom home on East Via Cortina near Pineview Dam for just a measly $1.39 million. Still, there is still Hunstville on the cheap. For a household of 1 or 2, you can have a 1 bedroom cabin home in Huntsville for just $97,900. Who says you need a lot of money to live like the rich?
