El Dorado Hills

El Dorado Hills has long been recognized as a highly desirable location to settle into.

Welcome to El Dorado Hills

The stunning gateway to El Dorado County dazzles with jaw-dropping landscapes and luxury communities.
 
Woven into the enchanting foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, El Dorado Hills more than lives up to its golden name. Scenic, 360-degree views of varied terrain — including the eastern shores of Folsom Lake — open up a world of possible vistas to those buying homes in the city. 
 
As an unincorporated area, El Dorado Hills has long been recognized as a highly desirable location to settle into, both in terms of the Sacramento Metropolitan Area and the nation at large. Affluent, pastoral, and brimming with gated communities, El Dorado Hills ranks exceptionally well in the areas of safety, education, and quality of life. 
 
The majority of homes in El Dorado Hills are newer builds dating after the 1990s. Due to this, most homes have a traditional or contemporary feel and pull from a multitude of styles, such as Spanish and Mediterranean. El Dorado Hills is also populated with plenty of high-end neighborhoods, and multimillion-dollar estates, executive homes, and spacious single-family abodes near the lake are in high demand. 
 

What to Love 

  • Proximity to the illustrious Serrano Golf Club
  • Diverse recreational areas with endless forest acreage 
  • Inspiring lakeside properties with all the latest amenities 

Local Lifestyle 

Leaving behind the daily bustle of the world is essential for residents of El Dorado Hills, and the community’s preservation of this halcyon way of life hasn’t gone unnoticed by commuters hoping to escape the city. Because the area is intersected by the El Dorado Freeway, locals are just 30 minutes from Downtown Sacramento, giving them the best of both city and rural lifestyles. 
 

Dining, Entertainment, and Shopping 

Stylish and upscale, El Dorado Town Center is the local go-to for a shopping and dining experience. Fashionable lakefront restaurants are sprinkled in between niche boutiques, beauty and wellness spas, and specialty retailers, giving shoppers a cornucopia of goods from which to choose.
 
Despite its small size, El Dorado Hills is also veritable foodie heaven. Top-notch establishments like Sienna’s Restaurant radiate excellence. Here, diners are treated to a warm, sophisticated interior as well as a menu of delectable modern American cuisine. Sky Sushi keeps it classy for its customers, offering up innovative maki dishes and traditional Japanese fare. 
 
Those in search of a tried-and-true neighborhood hangout need to look no further than The Purple Place Bar & Grill. With its signature eggplant-colored exterior, this local treasure is impossible to miss. A quirky saloon atmosphere captures the nostalgic Old West, while the menu is full of classic American dishes and a wide selection of creative cocktails. 
 

Things to Do 

The sheer abundance of green space and gorgeous landscapes in El Dorado Hills practically begs its residents to get out to enjoy nature, and that’s exactly what the community loves to do. 
 
Apart from the nearby Folsom State Lake Recreation Area, residents can also visit local spaces such as Promontory Park. Kid-oriented amenities like the play structures and water spray ground make this a top park for families, but when the summer sun brings the heat, the CSD Community Pool is the place to be. 
 
Adults will enjoy the area’s proximity to the Amador County wineries, which boast pristine vineyards and effortlessly chic tasting rooms that provide the perfect weekend getaway.
