Homes and Real Estate in Fair Oaks California
Fair Oaks California is a town in the Sacramento-Arden Metro area, comprising about 11 miles in size and known for the more rural homes, mixed with community pride and festival participation by its residents, such as the annual "Spring Fest" celebration.. The town is also famous for having "wild chickens" running loose throughout the city and its parks, prompting an annual chicken festival in September to acknowledge its feathered residents.
The population of around 10,000 folks in Antelope tends to be mature, (median age of 45) with less emphasis on small children than some of the other nearby cities. Other attractions include the Plaza Park Amphitheater, the Fair Oaks History Center, and an annual Dog Walk held every October.
Fair Oaks was settled in 1844 as part of the Rancho San Juan Mexican Land Grant, and was primarily set up for citrus farming. The Howard-Wilson company promoted the land as Fair Oaks, and most early purchasers were businessmen and investors. These important developers convinced Sacramento County to build a bridge across the American River for easy entry, and to persuade the Southern Pacific Railroad to come in. The town grew rapidly thereafter and also began to produce almonds and olives as well as citrus fruits.
A freeze in 1932 dampened the citrus production in much of Sacramento, and Fair Oaks was no exception. However, a large defense corporation, Aerojet located there, and although employment played out in the early 70's, new highways and a better bridge had connected the town to be more convenient for Sacramento commutes, and cemented its popularity for those seeking a more rural home while still enjoying the Sacramento industries and employment. Quite a few famous people either live in Fair Oaks or were native to it, including the singer Lynn Anderson, news anchor/actress Christianne Klein, author Nicholas Sparks, and Joan Lunden of Good Morning America.
If you're looking for a quiet, less crowded home with more of a country feel, then Fair Oaks might be a great place to begin your search. Homes here tend to have larger than usual lots, plenty of mature trees, and range anywhere from $200,000 to over a million. Call us for a tour or more information!
