Elmhurst Real Estate
Elmhurst is one of the many charming neighborhoods that make up East Sacramento. It’s bordered by Highway 50, the U.C. Davis Medical Center, 2nd Avenue, Stockton Boulevard and 59th Street. The quiet location and lack of traffic have let it fly under the radar and is considered a gem to all those who have stumbled across it and made it their home.
Like most of East Sac and midtown, Elmhurst is lush and shaded with towering elm, oak, and ash trees, most evident along T Street, where a wide, grassy median serves as the core of the community. The houses that branch off this very distinguishable feature include bungalows, craftsman, Tudor, and ranch style homes. Most notable of these is the Julia Morgan House, a Mediterranean revival mansion designed by the famous architect.
Neighborhood amenities include the Coloma Community Center - a beautiful, tile-roofed brick building that was converted from the old Coloma Elementary School into a visual and performing arts center. It also houses Tiny Tot Time, a recreation program for preschool-aged children. The surrounding Coloma Park has a picnic area, playground, and basketball court. Freeways are close, as is the light rail, and the cozy Cottage Mart on 51st offers great sandwiches and last minute grocery items.
The feeling of community is strong here, with Elmhurst Neighborhood Association spearheading summer picnics, pancake breakfasts, tree plantings, Easter Egg hunts, and holiday tree lightings.
