Colfax Real Estate

Communities within Colfax

The town of Colfax is nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. Located in western Placer County along Interstate 80, this low key but lively town was put on the map due its integral location along the Union Pacific railroad.  The city of Colfax incorporated in 1910, making it one of the smallest actual cities in California.

Steeped in history, Colfax is home to a thriving community, harmoniously comprised of both longtime locals and Bay Area transplants. Residents born and raised in this mountain oasis find it hard to leave while those looking to escape city life discover peaceful living and small town charm.

An hour each way to Lake Tahoe and Sacramento, Colfax is idyllically located near world-class recreation and beauty, as well as urban amenities. Scenic Highway 174, which links the area to Nevada City and Grass Valley, accesses several wineries, farms, and Rollins Lake, a haven for boaters, campers, and swimmers.

The historic downtown recently underwent a revitalization project, highlighting the already burgeoning art and dining scene. A number of street fairs and festivals, as well as the wildly popular Fourth of July Celebration and Annual Railroad Days, boost the community camaraderie while cultivating local businesses.

Homes and neighborhoods range in style, from small developments and Victorian gems, to country cabins and luxury homes on expansive lots. Families moving to the area will not only find a myriad of home options, but also an excellent school system.
