Welcome to El Dorado Hills
Breezy rural feel with big-city luxuries
Lying 22 miles east of Sacramento in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, El Dorado Hills' scenic beauty, stunning properties, and abundant community events have made it a top destination for quintessential suburban living with access to big-city amenities. Laying claim to two large community parks replete with multi-use sports fields, playgrounds, and picnic areas, residents find ample space to stretch outdoors while being close to home.
The neighborhood lies near Coloma, the birthplace of California's Gold Rush. In the 1840s when gold was washed down the South Fork of the American River into present-day El Dorado Hills, thousands flocked to this eastern town, which in no time supplanted the Gold Rush with farming and ranching.
Today, opulence and style come to mind as you tour the streets of El Dorado Hills, where single-family homes run the gamut from farmhouses to Spanish-style retreats and Mediterranean models offering residents the utmost serenity and privacy.
