South Nevada County, CA - Homes for Sale and Community Information

South Nevada County CA real estate is in excellent proximity to Lake Tahoe, one hour to the east, and Sacramento, one hour to the west. This is "gold rush" country, where intrepid prospectors sought their fortunes in the middle part of the nineteenth century. A fortunate few struck it rich back then. More recently, in 2010, one gentleman found a solid gold nugget weighing 8.2 pounds in the county.

Today, other riches are found both in the fabulous outdoors and in the area's burgeoning computer and electronics businesses. The area has, in fact, become known as "The Silicon Valley of the Sierras."

Whereas Truckee is in the extreme west part of the county, Nevada City and Grass Valley are prominent towns in South Nevada County at an elevation of 2,400 feet.

In 1997, Time Magazine rated Grass Valley as one of the ten most desirable small cities in the nation in which to live. Down the road from Grass Valley is the master planned community of Lake Wildwood, a boating and golfing Mecca.
