Starting at $188,990, the community will consist of fifty-seven (57), three-story townhomes featuring an elegant upscale brick-and-stucco exterior and enhanced interior floor plans and design features. “Carlisle Place is Hamlet Homes’ 36th community since our founding in 1994, and our third community in the City of South Salt Lake,” said Michael Brodsky, founder, owner and chairman of Hamlet Homes. “Carlisle Place reflects Hamlet’s commitment to designing and developing top-quality, value-priced communities that provide every home buyer with a superior experience. It also aligns with South Salt Lake Mayor Cherie Wood’s top priority to provide residents with quality housing and beautiful, healthy neighborhoods.” Mayor, Cherie Wood joined Brodsky and Gary Jones, COO of UTOPIA, in the groundbreaking ceremony, and offered these remarks. “Hamlet Homes is a valued partner in changing the face of the City of South Salt Lake and in contributing to our ‘Promise South Salt Lake’ initiatives,” said Wood. “Their beautiful communities mirror our city’s growth and success, especially this year as we celebrate our 75th anniversary.” Prior to designing Carlisle Place, Hamlet sought feedback from homebuyers at its Waverly Station townhome community. This input was incorporated into enhanced open floor plans and design elements that include larger balconies, side-by-side washer and dryer on the bedroom level, and larger secondary bedrooms. Adding further value to each townhome are energy-efficient features including a 90 percent-energy-efficient furnace, 2 x 6-foot exterior walls, low-E windows, and Energy Star appliances.

THE NAMING OF CARLISLE PLACE
Hamlet Homes has a tradition of naming its communities after Scottish people and places. For over 1700 years Carlisle Place has occupied an important position on the Scottish-English border and bears a rich history. Few areas in the United Kingdom have produced as many notable family names in world history as the border region of Carlisle.
Carlisle Castle is the most-besieged place in the British Isles and in 1568 Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned there for six weeks while her cousin Queen Elizabeth I considered a course of action. The rest is history, as they say. The canal of Port Carlisle led to industry and shipbuilding, but was soon replaced by railway – a transportation system that secured the future of the city with no less than eight busy lines, six of them remaining in operation today. Carlisle was also an official stop for the Olympic torch on its way to London’s Olympic StadiumIn light of this great history, Hamlet has named it newest community ‘Carlisle Place’ as well as naming a single new street, Kirkbridge Avenue, in commemoration of the nearby towns that were only accessible via the railway running through Carlisle.
