About Serrano and El Dorado Hills


Serrano is the preeminent community in the Sacramento region. 3,000 acres master-planned to take advantage of its beautiful setting in the Sierra Foothills, 30 miles east of Sacramento on Highway 50 in unincorporated El Dorado Hills.

gated entrance to serrano

Designed to take full advantage of its beautiful setting, over 30% of the community is dedicated open space. Residents enjoy 17 miles of trails through Serrano’s oak-studded hills and preserved wetlands with views of the Sierra Nevada, Mt. Diablo, and the Coastal Range from various spots in the community.

Serrano’s centerpiece is the private, award-winning Serrano Country Club with a Robert Trent Jones Jr. championship golf course, tennis courts, fitness center, a swimming pool, and a range of restaurants. All just a short cart ride from your door at Balancia.

Serrano homeowners enjoy roving security with manned gates into Balancia’s country club neighborhood, a professionally managed homeowners association, on on-site public library, and adjacent award-winning elementary, middle, and high schools.

Within five minutes of home, you will find shopping, dining, and and entertainment venues. It’s a short drive to the Folsom Lake boat launch and the American River.

Serrano COuntry ClubIt’s an easy 40 minutes to the Sacramento International Airport where you will find the size and convenience a nice change from the larger SFO and LAX airports. The Sacramento Executive Airport is even closer where private and charter jets make regular flights to the Bay Area, LA, and beyond. Private pilots will love the easy access to the Cameron Park Airport!

El Dorado County’s wineries and wine country will be a pleasant surprise for those who have not yet had the pleasure of a visit. Fifty miles east of El Dorado Hills, beyond the summit of the spectacular Sierra Nevada and El Dorado National Forest, Lake Tahoe is an easy drive for quick day trips or an extended stay.

It’s no wonder that so many families from the Bay Area, Southern California, and around the country are discovering the amazing lifestyle offered in Serrano, El Dorado Hills!
