With more than 1,600 homes planned on 350 acres, a large selection of home plans and an amazing amount of unique recreational opportunities, Oakwood Homes’ new Saratoga Springs community is all about choice.
Welcome to Wander, a new master-planned community situated on the northwest shore of Utah Lake. This unique location will offer 40 acres of parks, a future community clubhouse, 14 miles of trails, multiple community pools and a private spring for paddle boarding.
Of course, deciding what amenities to enjoy comes after deciding what type of home is best for your family and your future.
“Our goal with the community is to really offer the full spectrum and provide customers with more value in their home. We want to provide solutions for the affordability challenges many buyers are facing,” said Ryan Smith, Utah division president of Oakwood Homes. “We’ll have everything from homes designed for first-time buyers to estate homes.”
A total of five different types of neighborhoods are planned in Wander with each neighborhood offering its own collection of home plans. There will be something for everyone, from more affordable duet homes to single-family homes and a gated estate community.
“We can best demonstrate that by having people come in and work with our trained sales team to find the home that best fits their need,” Smith said.
When the time comes to choose fixtures, lighting, flooring and trim details, buyers will find many on display at the company’s 10,000-square-foot New Home Center. A professional design team will help homebuyers choose the ideal finishes for their lifestyle.
To further aid homebuyers in their selection process, Oakwood Homes is building a model home complex with 18 fully decorated homes — quite possibly the largest model home complex in Utah, Smith said. It’s known as Wanderland.
Building in Wander will provide both the perfect home and the perfect location. Situated in the middle of Utah’s Wasatch Front, Wander is minutes from Lehi’s Silicon Slopes business center as well as grocery stores, shopping, entertainment venues and restaurants. Oriented around the Jordan River and a corridor of hot springs, living in Wander will provide opportunities for boating, fishing and other water sports as well as enjoying breathtaking views of Mount Timpanogos and its surrounding summits.
Wander’s first park is located next to the pond formed by the natural springs and will include a community swimming pool, pool house, playground and event lawn. This park will be completed next spring, meaning it will be available to Wander’s very first residents.
Wander will also be home to a new elementary school as well as three churches.
“The community is on such a large scale that we can do some really exciting things,” Smith said.
Wander is scheduled to officially open in late October, but those interested in this unique opportunity can now visit the Oakwood Homes information center located at the Wander site at 400 South and Riverside Drive in Saratoga Springs. Homebuyers can also visit LiveWander.com and sign up on the VIP Interest List to be among the first to receive information and updates about the community, as well as invitations to exclusive events.
