Hamlet Homes Breaks Ground on Live/Work Townhomes at Birkhill in Murray’s Fireclay District

Now Open for Sale at Pre-construction Prices

Murray, Utah — As warmer temperatures embrace the Salt Lake Valley, Hamlet Homes is breaking ground on the construction of 10 new live/work townhomes in Birkhill at Fireclay, with prices starting in the low $180’s. Located at Fireclay Avenue (4250 South) and Main Street, this exciting, mixed- use, transit-oriented development (TOD)—the essence of the Birkhill at Fireclay community—is nestled in the heart of Murray City’s 97-acre Fireclay District.
Designed and developed by Hamlet Homes, Birkhill at Fireclay connects Salt Lake County homebuyers with beautiful new condominiums and townhomes, as well as commercial and retail offerings that embrace the best of urban living. For families, a community park and playground located along Big Cottonwood Creek within Birkhill’s perimeter makes outdoor enjoyment convenient and fun. For home-based businesses and commuters, the adjacent Murray North TRAX station is exceptionally convenient and environmentally friendly.
“Birkhill at Fireclay is the epitome of a well-planned, attractively designed urban neighborhood,” said David Irwin, vice president and director of sales and marketing at Hamlet Homes. “Residential, commercial and retail services are intertwined and conveniently located just steps form the Murray North TRAX station, creating a truly walkable urban lifestyle.”
Hamlet Homes’ Birkhill at Fireclay community was the proud recipient of the 2009 Governor’s Quality Growth Award recognizing sustainable design concepts that contribute to improvements to the quality of life in Utah.
Distinctive Design, Energy-Efficient Features
The townhomes at Birkhill feature sleek urban architectural designs with brick facades complimented by tree-lined sidewalks and landscaped street medians that add to the beauty of the surrounding area. Each maintenance-free town home will also meet the high standards of Energy Star®.
Five floor plans are available. Each Birkhill townhome has between 1,100 to almost 1,500 square feet of living space. The master bedrooms feature large walk-in closets and some with a garden bath and up to 3.5 baths. The well-designed kitchen includes a countertop island, track lighting and GE Energy Star® appliances. Homeowners will particularly enjoy features such as energy-efficient windows, progressive light fixtures, modern designed trim, railing and doors. These three-story homes offer a rear-entry one- or two-car garage and customizable flex space on the first floor while providing the convenience of close in living with stunning mountain views.

“Each home has a variety of available options so homebuyers can put personal touches on their new homes,” says Irwin. “No matter how they plan to personalize—from flooring, cabinetry and lighting to countertops, appliances and faucets—Hamlet Homes will work with each homebuyer to provide the ideal home for them. And, our homes are backed with a 10-year Quality Builder’s Warranty (QBW).”

A Live/Work Lifestyle

A collaboration between Hamlet Homes and JSA Architects (based in Salt Lake City) has created a unique high-tech, cosmopolitan look. These exceptionally comfortable townhomes provide a true live/work opportunity with a street-level floor plan that is perfect for a home-based business or occupation (graphic designer, writer, accountant, artist, attorney, therapist, realtor, etc.) or simply additional living space.
“In 2007, 23 million Americans were reported as self-employed, a number that has grown significantly in the past two years,” said Irwin. “We are thrilled to offer a home designed with entrepreneurs in mind, a place where they can live and work in comfort and convenience… and just moments from the Murray North TRAX station.”
The community also features UTOPIA Community MetroNetTM’s high-speed fiber optic technology, to connect family, friends and businesses via advanced voice, video and Internet communications. Every home is ready for high speed internet use with a 10 mg and up down speed.
When completed, the 21-acre Birkhill community will contain more than 230 residential units, including condos and townhomes, as well as 150,000-square feet of office and retail space, offering homeowners, retailers and businesses the opportunity to enjoy a dynamic place in which to live, work and play.
The Birkhill at Fireclay sales center is located at Fireclay Avenue (4250 South) and Main Street and is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., closed Sundays.
