One of the most popular Gold Rush towns in Northern California is historic downtown Grass Valley. Real Estate in downtown Grass Valley features cozy bungalows that surround the many parks in the areas close to town, as well as well-preserved historic homes dating back to the 1850s when the influence in the area was strongly Cornish. The vibrant Grass Valley downtown with its eclectic boutiques, award-winning restaurants, and year-round events for the community such as Cornish Christmas and Thursday Night Market is sure to please people who own real estate in Grass Valley. There is a flourishing art and theater community; in the heart of downtown are both The Center for the Arts, and St. Joseph’s Cultural Center, offering year-round concerts, events, art shows, and classes. Several excellent schools are within downtown limits, making Grass Valley a wonderful place to own real estate for young families.
Situated at an altitude of 2,400 feet, Grass Valley is above the fog that often blankets the Sacramento Valley in the winter time, but below the snow that falls on the high country. With a mixture of cedar, pine, and deciduous trees, the colors that burst forth in Fall are beyond compare. Whether you are starting a family, pursuing a career in business, an artist, or someone just interested in belonging to a thriving community that cares, Grass Valley real estate is for you.
