Alpine was incorporated in 1850 as a humble farming community. Alpine now has a population of 9,555 people with 2,529 homes as of the last census.
Located in northern Utah County, Alpine provides an exclusive retreat for residents seeking to enjoy both stunning views of the mountains and quiet seclusion with a serene country atmosphere. Although somewhat secluded Alpine is only minutes away from shopping, theaters, and restaurants.
Alpine is a unique blend of old and new. In the downtown area you will find humble pioneer homes while most of the homes that have been built recently exceed a million dollars. The city began to develop rapidly in the 1980s and has grown steadily until it is almost completely built out. There is very little land left to subdivide and the city is not likely to annex additional land. Most of the zoning in the city is geared toward larger lots with most remaining land zoned for 1 acre lots. There are however 1/3 and ½ acre lots with existing homes that come up for sale routinely.
Beneath the peaks of Mt. Timpanogos and the Wasatch Mountain Range, those living here can easily access outdoor attractions and recreation, including Horsetail Falls, Silver Lake, the Alpine Loop Scenic Byway, Mt. Timpanogos Cave, mountain biking, cross country skiing and other sites and activities in the local canyons.
Nearby Utah Lake, Deer Creek and Jordanelle reservoirs are ideal for recreational boating, water skiing, jet skiing and any other water sports. The Provo River is a renowned fly-fishing location and flows through the majestic Provo Canyon. During the winter months residents are well within reach of world-class skiing at several nearby resorts, such as Robert Redford’s famous Sundance Ski Resort, as well as Snowbird, Alta, Solitude, Brighton, The Canyons, Deer Valley and the Park City Mountain Resort.
Additional attractions can be found in the bustling capital city of Salt Lake City, less than an hour away. These activities would include a variety of interests from the arts, to professional sports or fine dining experiences.
