When Jim Sewell joined Serrano Country Club in El Dorado Hills, he and his wife, Cheryl, purchased a lot at Serrano in case they ever decided to move there. They loved the area, and Jim liked the golf course and the club. The couple had lived for 25 years in Fair Oaks, where they raised their two children. Their life was centered around the children’s school and their activities, church and friends. In 2001, the Sewells decided to move to Serrano. “We designed and built our home as empty nesters and have been very pleased,” Cheryl Sewell said. “We thought about how the two of us lived and came up with a floor plan that has really worked for us. It’s been a great home to entertain in, and every day we are grateful. We love El Dorado Hills, and we especially love the community of Serrano. It is quiet and beautiful.” The couple didn’t think their family would live nearby, but now their two children and their spouses, their grandchildren and Cheryl’s 95-year-old mother have homes in Serrano. They’ve joined many who have headed for the hills.
