Rancho Murieta is a planned and gated community located 23 miles east of Sacramento in a rural setting along the Cosumnes River.
Construction of homes began in the mid-1970s. Buyers are attracted by the setting, two 18-hole championship golf courses, a country club, tennis courts, five lakes, townhouses and quarter-acre estate lots on private streets and an airport.
Outside the gates are an equestrian center, a post office, health club, restaurants, shopping center and more. The Cosumnes River provides fishing and recreation.
Rancho Murieta is a 3,500-acre community surrounded by open hills studded with oaks. The area is full of wildlife -- deer, turkey, salmon and the occasional bald eagle and coyote. There is a range of social organizations and clubs, including bridge, chess, cycling, genealogy, fishing and singing.
