homes in elk grove
This is a rare opportunity to build your dream home in a gated community in Elk Grove. Kapalua Estates is a small subdivision with only a handful of lots, and most of the owners have already built a home. There are utilities to the lot, so you’ve got sewer, electricity and gas. When I looked at the plat map, it shows 343 feet on the north side. The lot is slightly bigger than an acre at 43,569 square feet. It’s situated near Bradshaw and Bond Road, with the entrance to Kapalua from Bradshaw.
Before I tell you about my hot new single story listing in Laguna Creek West, let me explain how I know this is a hot listing. One of the things I do is study the competition. The competition is defined as other similar homes for sale within a half mile radius of my subject property. By studying the photographs and listing data of nearby homes, I can generally accurately predict just about how long it will take to sell any given home in our Sacramento region.
As long as there are comparables. In many parts of our area, inventory remains tight and low, whereas demand seems to be constant. This means if you need to buy a home, you will probably have to pay list price and make a fast decision. However, making a fast decision is easy with this hot new listing in Laguna Creek West.
This Elk Grove ranch home is a darling home, painted a cheery yellow, and it features a red tile roof. How pretty! There is a fenced private courtyard to keep children and pets from running into the street. Although the street is a private cul-de-sac with very little cars except for 11 neighbors coming home from work. It’s located in Emerald Park subdivision, just southeast from the Elk Grove-Florin and Elk Grove Blvd. intersection. Not that far from the freeway, either, but far enough away you don’t hear the noise. It’s close to a lot of shopping and restaurants.
Dairy farms have convinced me. Much as I appreciate the countryside, I am an urban girl at heart. It’s not often that I get out to the country. Living in Sacramento, the country is actually very close at hand. There are lots of places you can drive to from downtown Sacramento and be in the country in 20 to 30 minutes. Which is where we went yesterday afternoon to bring our adopted cat Horatio back to the Sisters Animal Sanctuary on Fogg Road. We drove past a bunch of dairy farms. I’ve never seen so many cows that close up. I asked my husband to stop the car so I could shoot a photo, which you see above.
The Wildhawk neighborhood is one of Sacramento’s best kept secrets. It is located between Calvine and Gerber and West of Vineyard. Homes are built in the early 2000s to present, but the high demand homes are those with 5 bedrooms and plenty of square footage. Many families move to the Wildhawk neighborhood for the Elk Grove schools. Nearby, there is Arnold Adreani Elementary School on Wildhawk West Drive but also Katherine L. Albiani Middle School on Bradshaw in Elk Grove and Pleasant Grove High School on Bond in Elk Grove.
