Overlake is a planned unit development about 30 miles west of Salt Lake City in Tooele County. The home construction in this community began with an idea for a walking community. The developer was interested in bringing back a sense of community where neighbors would socialize and families would walk together and meet at the park to watch their kids play.When the community concept was developed they were sure to include green space.There are parks throughout the development; grass areas as well as playgrounds. Overlake also offers a 18-hole golf course that is open to the public. The community is centered around an amazing ball park and playground. During the spring and summer months it is not unusual to find 2 baseball games a night being played.
There are two neighborhood schools in Overlake, Overlake Elementary School (K-6) and Clark Johnson Junior High School (7-8).
Overlake also has a small commercial area.There are physicians’ offices, child care, a hair salon, an elder care facility as well as churches and the county hospital.
Overlake’s housing options are townhomes and single family homes; there is something for everyone’s budget. One unique aspect of the neighborhood is that all garages must either be side loading or a front recessed garage.All the homes have a front porch and the landscaping in the front yard must be completed on newly constructed homes.
The townhomes typically have 1-3 bedrooms with 1-2 baths, some with basements some without.Most of the townhomes have yard maintenance included in their Home Owners Association fee, so it can be a maintenance free lifestyle!
The single-family homes range in size from 3 bedroom 2 bath up to 5+ bedrooms. Most of the single-family homes sit on lots ranging from .15 acres up to .26 acres.
Homes are still being built in Overlake so depending on which area of the community you would like to live in you can choose from an established single-family home, town home or new construction.
