Pools, spas and other enviable amenities can be found among El Dorado Hills real estate listings

Many of the homes for sale in El Dorado Hills, CA are well-known on the larger Sacramento housing market for their luxurious nature and various amenities. For example, many feature built-in pools and spas, including some of those on the lowest end of the region's price range.

You may initially be hesitant, as El Dorado Hills is known as a neighborhood with some fairly high priced real estate - the average listing price as of mid-December was slightly more than $560,000. However, you can find listings well below that level featuring a respectable range of perks.

For example, between the price range of $250,000 to $450,000, you'll see a number of three- and four-bedroom homes with in-ground pools, spas or hot tubs. Some of these have recently had their prices reduced by anywhere from 2 to just about 5 percent, and none are short sales or foreclosures.

As you go up in price, the amenities of these listings become more numerous, some including granite countertops, patios, maple cabinets and other appealing features. These range between $575,000 and just over $1 million in renowned gated communities such as Serrano and The Promontory. Some will have enviable views of nearby Folsom Lake.
