Nevada City Proper
Since the mid-1800s, real estate in Nevada City has been in very high demand. Beautiful historic downtown Nevada City with its ornate Victorian luxury homes and the benefits of progressive small-town living is an extremely charming place to purchase real estate. In the 1850s Nevada City was the most important gold mining town in the state and its rich history is celebrated today in the preservation of many original Victorian homes downtown.
As a homeowner in historic downtown Nevada City, walk into town to enjoy a number of top-notch restaurants, coffee shops, and boutiques in historical buildings, many of which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places (Nevada City downtown itself is registered as a National Historic Landmark). Or, take a walk on the newly-completed Deer Creek Tribute Trail which is accessed from town and features a state-of-the-art suspension bridge over lovely Deer Creek. Throughout the year there are several popular downtown festivals, most notably the celebratory Hot Summer Nights in July, and, in December, downtown turns into a festive winter wonderland with Victorian Christmas. Downtown Nevada City is also home to several award-winning schools such as Yuba River Charter School, Deer Creek Elementary, and Seven Hills Middle School.
At 2477 foot elevation, nested in the colorful foothills of the Sierra Nevada, local residents enjoy the natural beauty of all four seasons. Homeowners in downtown Nevada City with its friendly, artsy, bohemian community, quaint homespun charm, and historical beauty feel as though they have just stepped back in time.
