One-Story Wonders in the Sacramento Area Under $500K
We love taking a peek inside some luxurious properties in the area, dreaming about running our fingers along the cold, marble countertops, filling the huge walk-in closets with our latest shopping finds, and relaxing out by the pool on a hot summer afternoon.
But sometimes, we simply don’t have a need for seven bedrooms and five bathrooms for our family of three. Or we’re on the lookout for a one-story home to transition into from apartment living.
Thankfully, you don’t have to sacrifice quality and charm when looking at homes with reasonable price tags in the area. See what we mean with a look at a few of our favorite one-story wonders under $500K!
Cabin Home With Exceptional Outdoor Features
This home in Camino has exquisite cabin details inside and out, handcrafted with redwood, cedar, and pine. We love the 18-foot waterfall and skylight in the master bathroom, the large great room with exposed beams, and the endless possibilities for outdoor entertaining and activity — with a greenhouse, basketball court, horseshoe pit, lots of patios, two gazebos, and an outdoor bar/kitchen with a grill.
Charming Country Home With Gas Fireplace Stove
This charming home offers stunning views of its 2 acres of private country property. We love the vintage gas stove fireplace in the family room with soaring ceilings, and the bonus room (with another adorable gas fireplace!) with access to a private deck.
Lincoln Home With Gorgeous Outdoor Space
We love this home’s well-built interior and smart floor plan, but we are particularly excited about the backyard patio area. This low-maintenance landscape will look wonderful all year long, especially when you use the space to entertain during the spring and summer!
Like-New Placerville Home With Lots of Land
This single-story home was built in 2004 but it might as well be a new-construction property. Situated on 5 acres just minutes from Placerville, this home has tall ceilings throughout, a gorgeous kitchen with granite counters, a master bedroom with a French door leading to an outdoor patio, and more!
Regal Rancho Cordova Home Flooded With Natural Light
The tall arched doorways in this home in Rancho Cordova give it a regal feel. We love the cheerful and airy look throughout the space, thanks to bright decorative features and large windows letting in lots of natural light.
Vintage Home on Secluded Lot in Shingle Springs
This home features charming vintage qualities on a peaceful and secluded 10-acre lot in Shingle Springs. Enjoy picturesque views from the large windows in the open living area as you warm your toes by the adorable gas stove fireplace. This is the perfect property to build a barn filled with horses you can ride amongst majestic oak trees!
Recently Updated Contemporary Sacramento Home
We love the contemporary features in this Sacramento home that just underwent an immaculate transformation. Nearly every aspect of this home is brand new — including the stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, custom cabinets, slate backsplash, bamboo wood flooring, dual-pane windows, ceiling fans, fresh paint, and more!
Davis Home With Charming Curb Appeal
We love the charming exterior of this home in Davis — especially the bright blue front door! And inside, the massive living room would make the perfect space to gather as a family. This home has easy access to a golf course and The Greenbelt, a nearly continuous stretch of parks and bike paths that stretch across the city of Davis.
Fair Oaks Home Nestled Among a Forest
You’ll feel as though you’ve stepped into a sophisticated treehouse at this home in Fair Oaks. While this home technically has one story, you’ll take a few steps down to the living room and master, which makes the space feel more spread out. We love the woodsy feel of this home immersed in the forest — most enjoyable from the outdoor deck floating amidst the greenery.
Immaculate West Sacramento Home With Lots of Space
We are blown away by the immaculate features in this home in West Sacramento that look like they have never been touched. Enjoy lots of space in the open living space connected to the kitchen or out in the spacious fenced-in backyard!
