Sacramento Area Homes to Hide Away In
If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that we are perfectly capable of conducting our lives from home. Many people are working remotely now, children are engaged in distance learning, and home gyms and backyard gardens are now the norm, not the exception. From Zoom meetings to Netflix watch parties to virtual happy hours, many activities formerly conducted in-person are now done from the comfort of our own homes.
Unlike our pre-pandemic lives, we don’t need to be within commuting distance of work or school — we can hide out wherever we please! It’s easy to hole up inside our homes, especially when that home has everything we need. Whether resort-like backyards or home theaters, following are homes for sale in the greater Sacramento area that are perfect to hide away in — pandemic or not.
