Campus Commons is nestled along the American River Parkway between Fair Oaks Blvd. and Howe Ave. It is one of Sacramento’s most low-key luxury communities surrounded by lush greenery, recreational opportunity and urban amenities.
Developed by Robert Powell in the ‘70s, Sacramento Magazine recently listed it as one of the area’s ten great neighborhoods, touting it as a great place for easy living. How easy? The homeowners’ association handles most of the home maintenance projects as well as maintaining the lush landscaping the neighborhood is known for.
The planned development is comprised of approximately 1,160 single-family homes, a combination of both stand-alone and attached (townhome/condo). It sprawls over 680 acres with miles of paved walkways meandering throughout the neighborhood. The Commons, as it is known, is comprised of two distinct communities – The Village of Campus Commons and the Nepenthe Association. Both foster a resort-living lifestyle with two lakes, clubhouse facilities, swimming pools, spas, tennis courts, a greenbelt, and children’s play area.
Convenient access to the American River, American River Parkway, and 32-mile Jedediah Smith Memorial Bike Trail, as well as the nearby Campus Commons Golf Course, make it a haven for those who thrive from being in the outdoors.
Its convenience is further boosted with its proximity to downtown, Sacramento State University, Rio Del Oro Racquet and Swim Club, and numerous upscale shopping areas (Loehmann’s Plaza, Lyon Village and The Pavilions). Nearby schools include Sierra Oaks Elementary, and Sacramento Day Country Private School.
