Homes in Grass Valley come in an impressively wide assortment for such a small town. Ornate Victorian-style homes, quaint bungalows, detailed craftsman homes, modest ranch-style homes, and even modern, contemporary architectural styles are found within the community. The area’s hillside neighborhoods give way to densely populated forests where a number of Grass Valley homes can be found offering expansive plots of land and amazing views.
