A beautiful, bucolic Nevada County setting in Lake Wildwood, CA

Nevada County Real Estate

Beginning at the foothills east of Sacramento and stretching to the peaks of the Sierra Nevada Mountains at the state line, Nevada County covers nearly 1,000 square miles with a population just under 100,000.

Homes in Nevada County include a wide variety of single-family homes, luxury estates, and secluded, acreage properties. The steep hills and valleys of the foothills provide a number of Nevada County properties with breathtaking views of the Sacramento Valley and the snow-capped Sierra Nevada Mountains.
