12 Luxury Homes in Placer County That Could Be Yours
While it’s convenient and fun to reside in the heart of a downtown area, there’s something refreshing about a more secluded homestead. Luxury homes in Placer County enjoy serenity, lots of land to roam, and views of the area’s surrounding natural beauty.
Let’s take a look at a few of the expansive mansions situated in this region, including homes in Auburn, Roseville, Rocklin, Granite Bay and Loomis.
Equestrian Retreat On 11 Acres
We love this Auburn home for both its architectural makeup and the surrounding land the home rests on. This is a dream equestrian retreat tucked away on 11 acres of natural beauty. With plenty of space both inside and outside to entertain guests, a 60-foot solar pool with a pool house, an 8-stall barn, covered arena, and a huge workshop/garage space — this is the ideal home for an active family who loves to spend time outdoors.
Granite Bay Home With Outdoor Entertaining Space
This Granite Bay home was constructed with exquisite expertise from floor to ceiling and throughout every room. Just take a look at the central and open living space or the kitchen with not one, not two, but three ovens and three sinks. We are especially thrilled to find a wonderful outdoor space with a covered veranda leading out to the massive pool. And don’t miss the balcony off the master bedroom with a fireplace overlooking the pool and lake!
Luxurious Estate With Lots of Land
This glamorous single-story luxury estate in Auburn may lack a second story but it doesn’t lack amenities, acreage and a luxurious feel. The home rests on over 20 acres of land, featuring an 8-stall barn, a covered arena, two ponds, a guest house, and lush green grass as far as the eye can see. Within the home, you’ll find romantic and elegant features and superb craftsmanship.
Tuscan Property With Resort-Style Pool
Stepping inside this custom estate feels like you’re touring an Old World villa tucked away in the rolling hills of Tuscany. Each element of this home was designed with an impressive attention to detail, and offers plenty of room to entertain — especially outside. Enjoy drinks or a meal in the covered outdoor space with a fireplace, or gather by the resort-style pool with beautiful water features and a connected spa.
Santa Barbara Style Home With Exquisite Details
One of eight homes in an upscale gated community in Granite Bay, this Santa Barbara style estate features several elements that make us do a double-take. The overall design is exquisite, including the rustic wood beams, solid alder doors, handscraped hardwood floors, and elegant light fixtures. Step through the La Cantine glass folding doors to the backyard, where you’ll find an outdoor kitchen, vineyards, and the home’s built-in pool with waterfalls and romantic lighting.
Rocklin Golf Course Home With Spa-Like Master Bathroom
Travel to Rocklin to admire this home resembling a castle that overlooks the 6th hole of Whitney Oaks Golf Course. Everyone in the family will feel connected due to the open feel of the living space with soaring ceilings and a catwalk overhead. The master bathroom is straight out a spa, with ample square footage and gorgeous tile work surrounding the bathtub. Entertain guests in the beautifully designed outdoor space overlooking the golf course, or unwind as a family in the upstairs theater room.
Loomis Estate With Outdoor Oasis
This estate tucked away in a gated Loomis community is impressive both inside and out. Head to the resort-style backyard where you’ll be swept away to an outdoor oasis, featuring a pebble tec pool and spa, pool house, zip line, fire pit, covered loggia, tree house, trampoline, and a built-in BBQ. With five bedrooms and bathrooms, this is the ultimate space for an active and adventure-seeking family.
Contemporary Treehouse-Like Home in the Woods
This secluded contemporary home buffered by 38 acres is proof that minimalism says so much with so little. The soaring ceilings with clean lines and massive windows provide breathtaking views of surrounding scenery, including Folsom Lake and the north fork of the American River. Admire the incredible stone work, and white birch and maple elements throughout, and the natural beauty that this home unveils through large windows or the expansive deck. You’ll feel as though you’re in a larger-than-life treehouse while inside this property!
‘40s Style Home With Peaceful Backyard
This home in Granite Bay is magical, charming and cozy — featuring two properties rolling into one. The main home is reminiscent of the ‘40s, with an updated kitchen, formal dining room, large inviting family room, secret craft room, and more. The detached “mother-in-law” flat is equally as impressive, allowing lots of space to host family and friends. Spend the afternoon relaxing near the property’s pool, on the patios, in the gazebo, or overlooking the pond!
Modern Los Lagos Home With Resort-Style Backyard
This modern estate provides the perfect neutral backdrop for whatever interior design decisions you’d like to add to the home. But one thing remains unchangeable, and that is this home’s ability to impress. The resort-style backyard features an infinity edge pool and waterfalls, a fireplace, and a BBQ area. Take advantage of the exclusive and luxurious Los Lagos amenities, including tennis and basketball courts, walking trails, ponds, and a park area.
Upgraded Roseville Home With Paradise Pool
Live luxuriously in this completely upgraded home in Roseville, with gorgeous details, rich colors, and alluring textures throughout. The backyard feels like paradise, with a pool, spa, outdoor kitchen, BBQ, TV, four fire pits and a putting green!
Unique Custom Home on 44 Acres
There’s a fine line between enjoying a private life and accessing desirable amenities when you need it. Living in this Auburn home provides the best of both worlds, as you can retreat to this custom home on 44 acres while still maintaining a reasonable distance to the heart of Auburn. The genius design of local architect Ron Lichau really shines in this loft-style property with extremely unique design elements you just don’t see every day.
