Whoooeeeeee! It's been a long time. 30+ years in Fair Oaks, and I've loved it... I've been able to drive every street - every nook and cranny of Fair Oaks and her surrounding communities, and I've found all the best places.
Take a look at photos of my favorite homes and tucked away places. They're mostly of:
*Fair Oaks, (on the bluffs of the American River, upstream of Sacramento, with the cutest old town known for its wandering chickens)
*Orangevale (an eclectic mix of horse property dotted with infill tuscan-style estates)
*Citrus Heights (good values and lots of trees)
*Carmichael (along the river with Ancil Hoffman park)
*Gold River (beautiful planned development on the banks of the river with miles of bike trails)
*Folsom (there's more than the prison where Johnny Cash sang - a quaint old town with Victorian homes and access to sublime boating, biking, bar-b-ques, beaching, and... bookreading? ... at Folsom Lake)
*El Dorado Hills (gorgeous, views, with beautiful homes)
*Granite Bay ( famous for its schools, rural properties and estate developments, like Los Lagos)
*Roseville (has everything, plus a super business center)
*Rocklin (rural bucolic life plus gazillions of newer lovely subdivisions)
*Sacramento (a gold Rush town on the confluence of the American and Sacramento Rivers)
Hope you enjoy...
