Darkhorse is a quiet community located in southern Nevada County, California. This community is about 1600 feet above sea level and is above the valley fog and below the Sierra snowline. It’s located about an hour’s drive northeast from Sacramento off of Interstate 80 and near historic Highway 49 about midway between the historic old gold rush towns of Auburn, Grass Valley, and Nevada City.
Darkhorse is comprised of approximately 200 lots with scenic views of the Darkhorse Golf Course, nearby lakes, wooded open space, and great sunsets. Live with views of natural rolling hills, oak and pine trees, and wildlife including deer, turkey, and quail.
In 2006, Darkhorse was the chosen site for a Street of Dreams home tour showcasing four premier luxury homes situated above the 17th fairway. Many of the homes carry out the theme first presented in these spectacular homes.
Darkhorse is a friendly community with opportunities to live away from it all and yet close to activities in Sacramento, foothill gold rush communities and up to Tahoe.
