Neighborhood spotlight: Del Paso Country Club Estates

Country Club Estates is the neighborhood directly behind Del Paso Country Club, bordered by Marconi Avenue to the south, Watt Avenue to the East, Fulton Avenue to the West, and Pope Avenue to the north, but also includes Club Lane, Country Club Lane, E Country Club Lane, and W Country Club Lane. Directly to the west of the club, the homes on Morse Avenue are spectacular architectural masterpieces, built in the 1920's.

Homes in this community were generally built in from the 1920's through the 1950's. Aside from Morse Avenue, these older homes range in size from small 800 square foot cottages, to 3500 square feet, and sit on parcels ranging from a quarter acre to just over an acre in size. While many of these homes were built as "cookie cutters", meaning that only a handful of individual floorplans were initially built and available, most of the homes have been remodeled and added on to, giving each home distinct individuality but retaining the original charm.

Seely Park sits on Pope Avenue in the middle of this community. It was recently completely renovated, and has a full size basketball court, playground, picnic facilities, and beautiful "water splash" fountain where children in the hot summer months are known to cool off.

The Town & Country Village is nearby, providing residents of Country Club Estates lots of upscale shopping, including William Glen, the Helen Jones Art Gallery, and Bonney & Gordon. Also in Town & Country Village are plenty of places to eat, including the Sacramento Brewing Company, Chateai by A Shot of Class, and my favorite LeGrand Confectionary.

While there are no schools within Country Club Estates, there are several nearby ones, including Whitney Avenue Elementary School at Eastern and Whitney, Arcade Fundamental Middle School at Watt and Edison, and El Camino Fundamental High School on El Camino and Eastern.

Del Paso Country Club was founded in Sacramento, California in 1916 on what was once part of the historic Rancho Del Paso. Through the years, the Club has grown to include an 18-hole golf course, beautiful dining and meeting rooms, a modern Fitness Center, multiple swimming pools and Golf Pro Shop.
