11 Sacramento Homes That Will Blow Your Mind

While home buying can be a long process that requires lots of community research, agent communication, open house visits and online searching, it only lasts for a season. And often, once you find your dream home, you no longer need to stop by open houses in the neighborhood.

However, we have to admit that it’s fun to peek inside various homes on the market, whether or not you’re looking to buy at the time. And it’s particularly exciting to walk through some luxury properties, with larger-than-life amenities, tall ceilings and breathtaking views.

So we put together a little luxury home tour of our own, drawing attention to some of our favorite mansions in the greater Sacramento area on the market right now. So scroll through these jaw dropping photos and be sure to leave a comment after the “tour,” letting us know which home you like the best!

Mediterranean-Spanish Hacienda in the Hills of Catheys Valley

This Mediterranean-Spanish Hacienda in Catheys Valley takes full advantage of the 100-year-old spring-fed lake on the property. Living here would seem like a full-time luxury vacation, with its outdoor covered verandas, tall ceilings with exposed wooden beams, outdoor kitchen for entertainment, the serene bridge covered in flowers, and the impeccable landscaping.

Majestic Mansion in the Heart of Arden Oaks

We actually can’t tell if this is a luxury resort, a wedding venue, or a home. This estate in Arden Oaks marries old-world charm with a relaxed elegance, featuring a home theater, a massive great room, a private courtyard including a pool, spa and cabana, and more. This property was meticulously designed and crafted with care, from the Tunisian iron work to the custom pillowed-leather bar.

Modern Mansion with Large Glass Windows

This modern mansion in Arden-Arcade is a welcomed change of pace from the more traditional high-end properties we typically see. We love the clean-cut combination of glass, aluminum, stainless steel and charcoal concrete, that come together to create a peaceful yet exciting feel throughout the home. We also love the wide open floor plan, which is made even wider with the tall glass walls that allow lots of natural light in. Sit back and relax on the covered outdoor patio next to the fireplace, as you control all home functions with the smart home automation system.

Luxurious Italian Villa in Carmichael

Travel up a peaceful private lane in Carmichael to encounter this luxurious Italian villa. While we love the interior of this home with stunning features and plenty of room to roam, we are particularly excited about the outdoor space. The lush, green courtyard houses a stone fireplace and a pool with an elegant water feature, and a large area for eating a meal with the family or friends.

This home in Catta Verdera — particularly the view of the backyard — simply makes our jaws drop. The fine details in this space and the overall look make you feel like you’ve stepped straight into an Italian villa tucked away on the Tuscan hillside. If you thought the interior was amazing, step outside and check out the gorgeous pool, patio, and outdoor living room with a full outdoor kitchen, pizza oven and drop-down movie projector. This is the epitome of luxury living!

Mediterranean Masterpiece with Vineyard Views

This Mediterranean masterpiece is situated on almost 1 acre of land within Serrano Country Club, featuring views of a vineyard, and lots of space for entertainment. We are particularly drawn to the pebble tec pool, the private home theater and wine cellar downstairs. As we’ve seen with other properties in Serrano, the exposed beams on tall ceilings add an element of old-world charm and character to this massive home.

Who says a home has to have multiple stories to blow you away? This single-story home in Loomis is spectacular from every angle, inside and out. It is situated on its own private pond at the end of a gated private lane, making it a private and serene getaway. We particularly love the small and delicate windows situated high up on the open-floor living space, which provide lots of natural light and the illusion of a two-story home from the outside. Entertain guests with the spacious outdoor kitchen and comfortable seating area next to the outdoor fireplace.
