Speechless Sunday - A Beautiful Day in East Sacramento!
DeeDee Riley, Realtor - El Dorado Hills & the Surrounding Areas (Lyon Real Estate - El Dorado Hills CA)

The beautiful East Sacramento area - Fabulous 40's street.

The streets in East Sacramento numbered from 40-47th are in an area referred to as the Fabulous Forties.  It is one of the most desirable areas of Sacramento.  Many of the homes were built in the early 1900s, especially in the 20s, 30s, and 40s.  Today my sister-in-law and I attended a holiday tour of homes here with 5 amazingly decorated homes.  What a beautiful day for it!

Christmas in SacramentoI do so love holiday home tours...how about you? They seem to get eveyone in the holiday spirit, not only to get some fresh new holiday decorating tips for your home but to also help raise money for different charitable events and causes.

Great homes in the Fabulous 40's are once again being decorated to the hilt and awaiting your arrival.

Each year selected homes in an East Sacramento neighborhood roll out the carpet, sprinkle their fabulous homes with the very best decorations for the holidays and provide a glistening tour of their houses.

Where is all this happening in Sacramento? 

None other than the Fabulous 40's. There are 5 exquisite homes in Sacramento's Fabulous 40's decorated by interior designers and florists.

The Fabulous Forties neighborhood in East Sacramento is between J Street and Folsom and 38th street to 47thStreet. If you've never been to the Fab 40's, you must make this a priority. The homes are large pre WWWI and pre WWII  with sweeping lawns on canopied tree lined wide avenues. This is the area were Ronald Reagan once called home while governor of California.

Want to see what the Fabulous 40's neighbood looks like? Just click on the video and take a glimpse.

 

 

 

The homes in the Fabulous Forties were custom built and many have a European flair. The Fab 40's is renowned for its electric "revival" style architecture. There are English cottages, Tudor-style homes, Dutch farmhouses, Mediterranean villas and Craftsman bungalows.

Each year during the holidays a select few residents open their homes for a self-guided tour to raise money for the Sacred Heart Parish School in East Sacramento for a $30 home tour fee. The Fabulous Forties holiday tour dates are:

  • Friday, November 30  12;30 pm to 7:30 pm
  • Saturday, December 1  10:00 am to 7 pm
  • Sunday, December 2  11:00 am to 4:30 pm

The tour begins on 47th Street and M. Look for posted signs. It typically takes about 2 hours to see all 5 homes. Order your Holiday Home Tour tickets on line.

This is one of Sacramento's finest real estate neighborhoods...it is always such a thrill to show homes in the Fabulous Forties. Sprinkled with small shops, restaurants, ice cream parlors, five parks and the ambiance of tranquility draw many to live here.

Neighborhood Spotlight: Fabulous 40's
Erin Stumpf (Attardi), 916-342-1372 / DRE# 01706589 Sacramento, CA (Dunnigan Realtors)

An area bound by J Street and Folsom Boulevard from approximately 38th to 47th Streets, this historic neighborhood boasts wide avenues, sweeping green lawns and large, prewar (pre-WWI and pre-WWII) homes that have housed many of the city's most prominent residents (including Ronald Reagan when he was governor).  It is a quick drive to downtown Sacramento, close to award-winning schools, close to fine dining, several parks, California State University Sacramento (CSUS), and just to name a few.

The neighborhood features grand old houses that were custom built in the early decades of the 20th century, when architects were looking to Europe for design inspiration. As a result, the Fabulous Forties is renowned for its eclectic "Revival" style architecture. Here you find a variety of dwellings: English cottages, Tudor-style homes, Dutch farmhouses, Mediterranean villas, and Craftsman bungalows. No two houses are the same. 

The average selling price per square foot in the Fabulous 40's?  In 2007 year to date, it is approximately $437/square foot.
