In the midst of a market loaded with million-dollar mansions in El Dorado Hills and Folsom, where does a prospective buyer find shelter priced below $500,000? It’s here, but hard to find.

These less expensive dwellings don’t have the indoor acreage and spa-like features of their gold-plated neighbors up the hill. What the region does offer is cheaper commuting costs while providing some of the most highly rated schools in California and greatest varieties of outdoor recreation, from the Sierra foothills to Folsom Lake.

Many are popular single-story finds, such as this one-level home in the Folsom Parkway, “a desirable neighborhood close to the best trail systems for walking, jogging or bike riding,” said Kathy Brill Burk, Realtor and listing agent at Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in El Dorado Hills. “You can also walk to get coffee or enjoy a meal at several close-by restaurants or go grocery shopping.”

The two-bath, three-bedroom home is on a corner lot and across the street from the Empire Ranch Golf Course.

“The beautiful custom wood and tile flooring in the entry and hallway give the approximately 1,670-square-foot home a very custom feel,” Brill Burk said.

Built in 2003, it has a spacious kitchen that overlooks the family room

The large master suite has outside access and the master bath has double sinks, double sinks and a shower stall separate tub.

There’s a dining bar in the large kitchen, a combination dining/family room. The kitchen has a ceramic counter, an island with a sink, cook top gas stove, pantry and overlooks the family room, which has a fireplace.

There’s an indoor laundry room with built-in cabinets. Energy savings come from ceiling fans and dual-pane windows throughout.

The home has an attached two-car garage and an uncovered patio.

Asking price for the home at 1244 Ferguson Way is $510,000.
