Land Park is One of the Most Desirable Neighborhoods in Sacramento

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

land park homes in sacramentoWherever I travel, I take photographs of homes. My passion for photography sometimes thwarts vacations as I get sidetracked. Instead of shopping at cute boutiques or dining at out-of-the-way cafés, often I end up wandering the streets of a town to admire its picturesque homes, invariably with camera in tow.

Last fall, I noticed the maple trees in Sacramento were beginning to drop their colorful leaves. The sun was sinking lower in the sky toward the afternoon, lending a soft glow on the horizon as light bounced off rooftops.

Suddenly, I felt inspired. It occurred to me that I have spent hours putting together photo galleries of homes along the coast in California and places as far away as France and Italy, yet, I had neglected the very area where I live and sell real estate: the Land Park neighborhood of Sacramento, California.

So, I put together a list of my favorite homes and set forth to take pictures. I really rushed because dusk was approaching; I wanted to include as many Land Park home photos that I could, but I didn’t want shadows to overwhelm these truly magnificent homes.

Land Park boasts homes from the 1920s through the 1940s. There are a few built in decades before and after that range, but the bulk fall within 30 years of each other. Many of these homes have been lovingly restored and updated.

I also noted the sales history of each of these Land Park homes, to give readers a better understanding of Land Park home prices and how the market value of these desirable homes has increased over the past five to seven years. Plus, I have included little known details about the rich history of Land Park.

Here is my photo gallery of Land Park Homes in Sacramento. Please let me know what you think. I am a Land Park resident and I specialize in selling homes in Land Park. If your home is featured, I hope you enjoy what I have to say about it. Many of my friends own these homes. If your home is not featured, and you would like me to take a photograph to include it, just call me at 916.233.6759. Unlike some Land Park agents, I always answer my phone from 7 AM to 7 PM. Any day of the week.

Hey Elizabeth -- 2nd page, first row, third home -- wow! That is old school cool! I loved your pictures BTW. Maybe if I have some time I can do the same and make a photo-gallery of the homes in Queens that I really like so you can check it out. Your area is truly lovely. Thank you for sharing and giving me the idea to do the same. Enjoy your evening. Regards, C.

Yup, C, some of the homes in Land Park are like Medieval castles. Homes that have updates, meaning at least remodeled kitchens / baths, without losing the home's original character, are in high demand. I'd also love to see your photo gallery of homes in Queens.

Hey E, I plan on starting bright and early tomorrow morning when I take my turtle run. I've picked an older part of Briarwood to showcase. Very nice homes.

No tour of Land Park is complete without a stop at Vic's.  That made me laugh.  Thanks for all the photos, some friends of mine bought one of them not too long ago.

Hello C: I'll have to pop over to your blog later on today to see your showcase photographs.

Hello Robert: I often walk to Vic's. When it's really hot outside, I sit inside. Did you know that Vic's makes really good grilled cheese sandwiches? But if it's not broiling hot, then I'll walk home with my ice cream cone. It's like a trade off -- the calories don't count if you're walking. :)

Hello Gary: Hey, if you like those photos, wait until I upgrade my camera. It was near dusk that day, so I had to shoot fast, and my camera is just a Kodak Easy Share -- it's not like I could play with the lens to plop stars into the pictures. But my new camera will do that.
