In the heart of Sacramento County thrives what is surely one of the strongest economic engines in the region: the Arden Arcade District. Nearly 1,700 businesses, large and small, generate an important part of Sacramento County’s commerce and economy. Arden-Arcade has some of the more affluent neighborhoods in the Sacramento area. There are neighborhoods along the American River and the American River Parkway with million-dollar house prices. However, there are also significant amounts of housing that are priced more affordably. Neighborhoods with upscale houses include Wilhaggin, Sierra Oaks, Sierra Oaks Vista, Arden Park, Arden Oaks, and some of the areas surrounding the Del Paso Country Club.

Called Carmichael Colony No. I, the 2,000 acres was once part of the 20,000 acre Rancho San Juan Mexican grant made to Joel P. Dedmond in 1844. The colony’s boundaries were Lincoln Avenue to the north, San Juan Avenue to the east, The American River and Deterting Ranch (now Ancil Hoffman Park) to the south and Fair Oaks Boulevard to the west.
Carmichael later bought another 1,000 acres that he called Carmichael Colony No. 2. It bordered the first colony to the east and Walnut Avenue to the west; the southern boundary was Arden Way with Sutter Avenue to the north. This new territory was previously part of the 44,000 acre Del Paso Rancho Mexican grant made to Eliab Grimes, in 1844. Before Carmichael acquired it, James Ben, Ali Haggin, and his Daniel Carmichael associates bred and raised racehorses, including Kentucky Derby winner Salvatore, on a farm located where Del Dayo Estates now stands.

CLOS DU LAC is a gated community of 88 homes surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and interconnected lakes located in Loomis, California. Home sites range from 1/2 acre to 23 acres nestled in a small wooded valley near Folsom Lake. CLOS DU LAC is a French idiom meaning “Walled Vineyard by the Lake” and represents the underlying theme of this gated village. CLOS DU LAC was developed by Hardie Setzer in 1994 and designed by the internationally recognized Henrick Bull, FAIA of BSA Architects in San Francisco. It was designed to create a sense of community similar in feeling to rural settlements located in Provence, France. The main street is in the shape of a trefoil from which the logo on the wine label was adopted and designed by David Lance Goines. The climate and topography in CLOS DU LAC is quite similar to many of the wine-growing regions along the Mediterranean and South Rhone Valley of France. Therefore, the design “theme” or “style” of this community is modeled after Mediterranean farmhouses or country villas but reinterpreted into a contemporary home which represents a present-day California foothill region lifestyle. Over twenty acres of vineyards are grown and harvested by the community and sold to a variety of Napa and Foothill based wineries that produce premium wines from the traditional head-pruned vines. The vineyards include varietals typical of Southern France including Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Petite Syrah and Mouvedre.

Originally developed during the 1920s –1940s, East Sacramento has managed to maintain a “small town” atmosphere with an old-fashioned, neighborhood feel. Stately mansions mingle comfortably with more modest brick homes on streets shaded by generous canopies of sycamore and elm trees. Charming bungalows and quaint cottages are often within walking distance of some of the city’s finest cafes and shops. This rich architectural style, coupled with many small neighborhood business districts, makes East Sacramento one of Sacramento’s most coveted neighborhoods. Two U.S. presidents are most associated with East Sacramento; William McKinley, namesake of our popular McKinley Park, and Ronald Reagan, who lived in the neighborhood during his eight years as governor of California.
