Hidden Gems Part 2
In our first post of this series we talked about the Hidden Gems that could be found in an established neighborhood , in that case it was Mormon Island in EDH.
This week we will take a look at another area that I have come to enjoy working in , that is Woodland. This city is know for its laid back attitude and historic downtown including the cultural center that is the original Opera House. The area offers one of the best opportunities for value minded Victorian shoppers. It started primarily as farming community , however it has grown its influences nicely and now includes much more , but not too much more that it destroys the charm of the area.
One of the he hidden gems of this city is that of The Beamer Park neighborhood. Located in the north part of town this are is more familiar to locals then to those arriving from out of the area . As one of the earliest master-planned subdivision, it has graceful curving streets and an eclectic range of architectural styles from the from the roaring 20's to just after the depression. Prices, ranging a bit above and below the half a million mark and for that you tend to get a lot more history in your house then in other nearby areas.
With more and more congestion clogging up the roads to the north and south , the mostly clear commute from a short distance away is looking more and more attractive to those who work in Sacramento and beyond.
