Whether it’s location, square footage, room count or a home’s overall look, there are many factors to consider when looking for the perfect home. And thanks to a tight housing supply and heated demand in Northern California, that dream residence can cost you a hefty sum of money.

That’s why many buyers and savvy investors are switching things up. Instead of searching for an ideal home, they are purchasing lots to build that dream home.

Not only does buying your own piece of land allow you to custom build a residence from the ground up, it also makes choosing the location of your unique masterpiece the number one priority. Once you have obtained a parcel of land in an ideal location, you’re pretty much set when it comes to smart investing.

In the affluent Northern California community of El Dorado Hills, a housing development is offering buyers the chance to purchase custom lots that come with the perks of luxurious community living.



Serrano in El Dorado Hills is an upscale development of luxury homes and lots that offers both serenity and security. It is located within minutes from shopping centers, restaurants, hospitals, and is only 51 miles away from nearby Lake Tahoe ski resorts.

The development consists of gated villages, approximately 17 miles of hiking trails, on-site and nearby schools, a private country club, golf course, 1,000 acres of open space, spectacular views and more.

At the forefront of environmentally-sensitive development, Serrano uses recycled water from the golf course, parks and greenbelts to water the front and backyards of the development’s homes.

In addition to four home communities, Serrano offers 32 custom lots – 19 of those which are newly-released lots. The lots range from half-an-acre to four acres and are ideal for buyers who wish to build single-story homes.

Listed by Pat Seide of Coldwell Banker El Dorado Hills, the lots start from the low $200,000s and come with all the amenities offered by the award-winning gated community.
