Sierra Oaks is a small pocket of homes bordered by Fair Oaks Boulevard to the North, American River Drive to the South, Watt Avenue to the East, and Howe Avenue to the West. Within these boundaries lies some of the most expensive and highly desired real estate in Sacramento county. The close proximity of the American River provides biking, walking, picnicking and fishing possibilities along the American River Parkway, a unique resource in the Sacramento area. Sierra Oaks is dotted with many neighborhood parks including Oak Meadow Park.
The first homes in this community were generally built in the late 1940’s and 1950’s. These older homes are typically ranch style between 2,000 – 3,000 square feet, and sit on parcels ranging from a quarter acre to an acre in size. Amongst these classic homes, of course, one will find newer construction and remodeled homes upwards of 6,000 square feet.
