Utah County is the happiest valley in Utah. At least it is, now that we’re bringing an active adult community to the east side of Utah Lake. Introducing The Villas at Waters Edge in Vineyard.
The Waters edge community is a brand-new master planned development for anyone who likes the idea of a new home, but doesn’t want to move half an hour to an hour away from everything.
If you’re like most people, you haven’t even heard of Vineyard. You might think it’s some out of the way place in Central or Southern Utah. Wrong. Vineyard is probably closer to home than your current house is.

Where is Vineyard?
Vineyard, and more specifically, the Waters Edge Community, is in the heart of Utah County. You may know the area by a different name. Geneva Steel. That’s right. Vineyard is the small town that sits right where Geneva Steel used to be. Now that they’re gone, this prime tract of real estate has been opened up for development.
Yes, that whole west side of I-15 between Orem and Utah Lake is Vineyard. The Waters Edge Community is full of various builders, of which we are one. To find this prime property, simply take the 800 N. exit off of the freeway and head towards the lake. You don’t have to go far. A new overpass connects you to the Waters Edge subdivisions.
Full of beautifully landscaped streets, lined with mature trees, this community sits with easy access to the shore. Literally just a couple of blocks from the water’s edge, you’ll be wanting to move in before all these lake side homes are sold.
Why Move to the Waters Edge Neighborhood?
Three years ago, I was looking for a new home for myself. Vineyard was a relatively new place back then. Nobody had heard of it. Many still don’t know about it. But I wanted to see if I could find a lot for my home near Utah Lake. I like to paddle, and thought it would be swell if I could find a home with easy access to the lake. Even then, before all of Utah County discovered Vineyard, the primo developed lots were sold or otherwise out of my price range.
On a warm June morning, I took another trip out to Vineyard. This time was different. This time, I was the one helping develop some lots near the shore. I remembered my desire to live near the lake, and I knew that this would be Utah County’s best location for a 55 and older community. While inspecting the property where we’ll soon be building over 150 new homes, I decided to go two blocks further west.
I rested in a small parking lot overlooking the shore and watched as half a dozen men and women waded out and filled stringers full of fish. I got that fishing fever as a bubble of excitement lifted me to act. I immediately rummaged through the back seat of my cluttered truck. Unfortunately, my bubble was burst, literally and figuratively. All I came up with was a melted plastic bubble, a rusted spinner, and some old brittle fishing line. I’d left my fishing pole and all my good tackle at home.
I might not have gotten my home over here near the shore, but I knew, deep in my gut, that this was going to be Utah’s “Go To” destination. Utah County is nearly filled to capacity. There might be the occasional in-fill locations here and there, but really, where are you going to move to if you want a new house in this part of Utah County? Not only that, but the best lots in the area are these Waters Edge parcels. “Last of all, the best of all,” to coin a common phrase.
When will it be Available?
This is the big question. You don’t want to be late like I was to the first few subdivisions. Since Vineyard isn’t all that large, the buildable land is disappearing faster than the remaining data on a teenager’s smartphone. Lucky for you, there is still time to find your perfect home in our Villas at Waters Edge Subdivision.
We plan to start selling in February, 2017. We’re already taking reservations, but no firm contracts will be signed until then. Our first homes will be available to move in around August or September.
Come check out this location today! If you’ve never seen any of our homes before, be sure to stop into one of our other amazing communities. We’ve got model homes and landscaped neighborhoods to give you a great feel for what we’ll be adding to the Waters Edge Community. We can’t wait to see you there.
