Situated in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, between the San Francisco Bay Area and the scenic Lake Tahoe basin with convenient access to Sacramento, El Dorado Hills is an active community with many parks and playgrounds, as well as bike paths and hiking trails. The westward view opens to a vista of the Sacramento Valley and Folsom Lake, while the higher ridges through the community offer spectacular views of the Sierras.

El Dorado Hills is also one of the most prestigious residential areas in El Dorado County, 22 miles east of Sacramento.

The recent sale of a Mediterranean style home with views of Folsom Lake, sunsets and night lights marks the highest price home sale in El Dorado Hills since 2008, and the highest ever in the exclusive Serrano gated community.

Pat Seide of the Pat Seide Group, an award-winning REALTOR® with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s El Dorado Hills office, was the listing agent for 4381 Berkwood Court, a palatial 7,549 square-foot home in the Serrano development that sold for $3.2 million. It marked the highest sale price in El Dorado Hills since a $3.5 million sale seven years ago.

The four-bedroom, six-bath home on Berkwood Court enjoys captivating scenery, breathtaking panoramic views of Folsom Lake, and a premier location within the gates of Serrano Golf and CC estates. It features a showcase kitchen, a master suite with stunning views of the lake, and three guest suites, a billiards room, a wine room that stores over 100 bottles and a theater room.

Perhaps one of the most amazing features of this property is the resort-style backyard featuring heritage olive trees, a private vineyard and meandering pathways, a fireplace and fire pit, a sparkling infinity pool with spa and fountain detail, and a cabana with full outdoor kitchen, including a grill, smoker, warming drawer, full-size refrigerator, dishwasher, full dining bar, dressing room and outdoor shower.

“I’m very proud of Pat’s accomplishment with this landmark sale,” said Katie Minor, manager of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in El Dorado Hills. “Pat has an outstanding track record for selling premium homes and estates, and this is just one more example of what a talented professional she is.”

A 30-year real estate veteran, Seide is one of the top luxury market specialists in the greater Sacramento area and has continually ranked in the top 1 percent of all Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage agents internationally. She has been the number one agent in the company’s Capital Region since 1998.
