Nevada City sits just about an hour away from Sacramento, close enough for commuting convenience yet far enough away from the city to preserve its quiet charm. A historically rich area dating back to the California gold rush, there are nearly 100 nationally registered historic sites and nearly 20 registered landmarks in the city alone.
Citizens in Nevada City have made it a mission from the town’s inception to preserve the fascinating heritage and maintain many of the original buildings from that era. Locals come together to celebrate the storied past with annual events and festivals. Tourists come from miles around to experience the renowned Victorian Christmas events each winter, locals participate in the annual Soapbox Derby Races, Summer Nights festivals, and movies have even been filmed in what many describe as a real-life Christmas card.
Today, Nevada City has become a haven for the artistic. The gorgeous landscape and historical Victorian buildings enhance the already burgeoning arts scene. Regularly, Nevada City wineries host art showings and open mics. Street performers are found up and down Broad Street on a nightly basis.
Enormous fir, pine, oak, and cedars are part of the eclectic mix of trees that decorate the area. They provide much needed relief from the warm Nevada City summers and protect the valley below from the sometimes heavy snowfall over the winters.
Affordable real estate in Nevada City is attracting new residents each year. A five bedroom, five-bath home with over 5K square feet of space can run as low as $850K. Even a small two bedroom, two bath home can be priced as low as $299K.
