10 Sacramento Homes With Dreamy Decks
Some of the major benefits of living in the Greater Sacramento Area include the abundance of sunshine, warm weather and lush landscape. While each season holds its own surprises, spring and summer have very special places in our hearts.
This is one of the best times to start the day wearing slippers with a cup of coffee in hand out on the deck, while you read the newspaper or your favorite summer novel. It’s the perfect temperature for enjoying a homemade meal out on the deck at dinner time, taking in the last few moments before the sun falls behind the mountains.
This is why we’re drawn to the many homes in the area with impressive decks or outdoor areas — for socialization, relaxation, or a combination of the two. Check out a few of our favorite deck setups, and let us know which one(s) you like the most!
This Hacienda-style home in Old Willowbank in South Davis has it all — including a detached guest house (or casita) on the property. Residents and guests can meet in the middle on the gorgeous Wisteria-covered deck/patio area. The long corridor with rustic beams overhead makes this structure look like it belongs at a resort or event venue. Watch the kids play in the green grass adjacent to the deck while you sip on a glass of iced tea during a hot summer afternoon.
This contemporary waterfront home has stunning views of Mt. Diablo and the San Joaquin River — which are especially breathtaking from its expansive deck. We love the bold design of this home, which is most evident in the bright red deck railing. This is the perfect viewpoint for enjoying a sunset and large boats passing by while you unwind with a drink or relax in the hot tub.
This is truly one of the more unique properties in the area — both inside and out. We are particularly drawn to its deck area that offers 360-degree views of the surrounding area, including Mt. Diablo, the San Joaquin River and breathtaking sunsets. Relax in the pool/spa area on the deck or grab a bite to eat while taking in your surroundings. This contemporary structure is truly one-of-a-kind, with its bold and unpredictable design.
Escape to this woodsy custom log cabin home situated on 10.75 acres of land. Take in views of the expansive property and beyond on the 16-foot granite deck area, or enjoy easy access to the yard while on the lower-level patio area. This home has the perfect setup for entertaining, as it essentially holds two houses in one with its separate-entrance guest house on the lower level. Add in the wine cellar, the abundant deck space, and you’re ready for summer!
The deck area is the heart of this Fair Oaks home in the gated community of The Lakes at Northridge. The open-floor plan including a gourmet kitchen, family, living and dining areas all open up to the deck overlooking a lake. This is the ultimate space for gathering with family and friends, and enjoying the finer things in life all the while.
This Lake Forest home is situated near Folsom Lake, so residents can enjoy amazing lake views, and easy lake access. This home has exquisite details throughout the entire space — and that certainly includes the outdoor deck area. Enjoy a drink around the firepit or table while you watch the sunset reflection on the lake. Living here would feel like you’re on vacation forever!
You will enjoy every element of this 4-acre property, whether you’re inside the custom-built home, out in the four-stall barn with a fenced pasture, inside the gazebo with a pool, or out on the deck taking it all in. In fact, the deck is one of our favorite places, as it provides a serene and private setting to relax and unwind in.
This cabin-like home in Placerville is situated on 10 acres of land, making it feel completely private and relaxing. The wraparound deck allows you to enjoy this luxury to the fullest, as you take in views of rolling hills filled with lush greenery and wildlife. You may also access the spa-like master suite from the deck, for your ultimate convenience and relaxation.
We love the light and refreshing interior of this contemporary farmhouse home, but things get even more surreal as we step onto the deck to enjoy impeccable views of Weber Creek Valley and Mt. Diablo. This Texas Hill Estates property is situated on nearly 5 acres of land, which makes it extremely private and luxurious. We can only dream about enjoying a drink as the sun sets while resting on this wraparound concrete deck — or on the second-story deck attached to the master bedroom.
This recently updated home in the Greenhaven neighborhood is certainly beautiful inside, but let’s focus on its outdoor amenities. It hosts a backyard paradise, with a pool, spa, outdoor kitchen, ponds, a gazebo, lots of decking, and a balcony off the second-story family room that overlooks it all. This is a wonderful place to rest while you watch the family enjoy the backyard and all its splendor.
