One of the main attractions of Granite Bay real estate is the exclusivity of this community of just 20,000 people. When you want neighbors who are successful, and possibly famous, but you still want your privacy, Granite Bay may be the perfect place to call home.
Community planning is expected and continuous in Granite Bay, with luxurious homes and famous – but not intrusive – neighbors being par for the course. But if the chance to live near professional athletes and distinguished entertainers isn’t important on your list of things to look for when you buy your next home, that’s okay, too.
Granite Bay also offers impressive schools, varied entertainment and recreation options, as well as a variety of churches. Just 25 miles northeast of Sacramento, much of the Granite Bay homes provide easy access to Folsom Lake and astonishing views of the Sierra Nevada foothills.
Granite Bay high school is consistently ranked as one of California’s best, making it a great option for parents who want to raise their children in a more rural but still stimulating environment. In fact, more people are attracted to Granite Bay because of the quality of the schools than for the chance that the neighbors might be someone they’ve seen on the cover of a magazine. Of course, the fact that celebrities who could live just about anywhere choose to buy homes in Granite Bay may speak to the quality of the community.
With top-notch academic performance on state testing, and the quality of life it offers, the exclusivity of Granite Bay may be likely to diminish as more people learn the attraction of this small community.
