East Sac Homes For Sale
The origin of the East Sacramento region’s name came from the fact that it was, quite simply, east of downtown. Residential development in the area began in the 1890s, and then the neighborhood was annexed by the city of Sacramento in 1911.
Today, East Sacramento is bounded by Elvas Avenue to the north/northeast, U.S. 50 to the south, California State University Sacramento and the American River to the southeast and Alhambra Blvd. to the west.
East Sac is a much admired and much sought place to live in Sacramento. The homes of East Sac tend to the historic, ranging from quaint 1920s bungalows and smaller lots to the rather spectacular mansions and spacious lots of the famous “Fab Forties” (so named for its location on the 38-47th Street blocks between J Street and Folsom Blvd.). That being said, the desire for larger and more modern dwellings has resulted in some unique contemporary remodels mixed in with the older homes.
One of the most popular aspects of East Sac is its wealth of green space. McKinley Park alone boasts 32 acres of grass, trees, jogging trails, a lake and a renowned rose garden often used as a backdrop for weddings. Beyond that, in East Sacramento, you get the safe, family-friendly vibe that’s usually reserved for the suburbs. But you are actually quite near—walking distance even—to some of the best restaurants and shopping in all of Sacramento.
