Nevada City Real Estate

Hidden in the vibrant forests of the Sierra Nevada foothills, Nevada City is the definition of a beloved small California town. Located 80 miles northeast of Sacramento and 70 miles west of Lake Tahoe, this city offers the last vestiges of modern living in a rural community. This tight-knit mountain town is a cultural center with a large population of writers, artists, and musicians. Many choose homes in Nevada City for retirement, but this town is also known for its lively character due to an eclectic and well-educated population of just over 3,000. Overflowing with natural beauty, this area is celebrated for its diverse population of tree species and the changing of the seasons attracts many tourists for the Fall Colors Tour each year. A wide selection of real estate in Nevada City is available, reflecting the region’s rich history. Thanks to the town’s remote location, many houses are located on beautiful sprawling properties spanning several acres.

Nearby homes in Grass Valley and Auburn also present a plethora of great real estate opportunities.
