What I love about Cedar City homes is the fact that you have so much variety, and so many options. From the newly popular craftsman style home, to the ranch style, to the log cabin, and the Tuscany’s; there’s just so much to choose between. There are different areas within Cedar City that offer exactly what you are looking for. There are different styles of homes on the hill, than in the valley, or even from those in the middle of town. So which style of Cedar City homes most interests you?
If it’s the newly popular craftsman style home you’re looking for then you’ll need to look for newer developments that have CC&R’s that allow for them. There are developments out in the valley, up on the hill, and one’s right next to town that allow for them. These craftsman style homes are popular due to their homey feel, and often feature front porches, side loaded garages, and hardi-board siding. They blend the old with the new in a warm inviting way.
If it’s a more tuscany European styled home that you seek then there are two primary places you should be looking, Leigh Hill, Sunset Canyon, and behind the golf course. These homes are quite stunning, and make people stop in their tracks as they walk by. There’s just something beautiful about a home with a turret or spire, with steep broken up roof lines, and darker brown and gray exterior colors.
Again we go back to the variety of homes available in Cedar City, and the ranch style is one that is quite popular and has been for some time in Cedar. So if this is the style you’re looking for in Cedar City homes, then you are in luck. It’s tough to find an area that doesn’t have a ranch style home available for you.
Of all the styles of homes in Cedar that are available, this one is probably your hardest to find. You won’t find many of them in town, or on the hill, and surprisingly there aren’t a lot out in the valley of Cedar City (better known as the town of Enoch) either. There are two main places that you’ll find this style of home, the first is Cedar Highlands, or the hill to the east of Cedar City. Cedar Highlands is nearly all log homes, log homes that give you amazing views of the valley below. There are also some log homes out west of Cedar City, as well as some a little further north towards Parowan.
So now that you understand that you have multiple options available to you for homes in Cedar, how do you pick one? How do you narrow it down? Often times that question gets answer quickly by asking a more pertinent question, where do you want to live? Because if you are looking for a craftsman style home, but want to be in the old par to town, well you’re options are going to be quite limited.
