An Oasis of beauty and quiet in the heart of the Sacramento area? Seem impossible. Read on….
Built on what was once the historic JF Cross Farm, Crosswoods occupies 91 acres of meandering wooded trails and rambling Arcade Creek. Although conveniently located for taking advantage of everything the city of Citrus Heights has to offer, its significant set back from Auburn Boulevard – as well as the noise buffering provided by thousands of trees and native vegetation – assures Crosswoods residents a quiet environment.
There are 451 homes within Crosswoods’ 91 acres – a combination of one and two-story cluster townhomes. All units have two or three bedrooms, multiple bathrooms with many different floor plan variations. The development was started in l972 and completed in l985.
The homes in Crosswoods are situated in spacious cul-de-sacs that branch off the main access loop – City maintained Crosswoods Circle. The single road philosophy with the absence of cross-streets, eliminates traffic in the living areas and encourages contact and camaraderie among neighbors. Every home has a large deck and many also have a brick fenced patio somewhere in the plan. All homes have access to common, naturally wooded or landscaped areas which are controlled and maintained by the Homeowners’ Association. There is also guest parking on each street and a storage lot just outside the residential area for recreational vehicles.
Crosswoods is an all-age, pet friendly community that is paradise for walkers, joggers and bike riders. In addition to the sidewalks along Crosswoods Circle, Crosswoods has miles of internal pathways which remain well-lit at night. If you are more contemplative than active, there are lots of benches where you can just sit and watch our resident wild turkeys amble by. For the swimmers, there are three pools, and the park next door has public pickleball and tennis courts, a tot lot and a public library.
It is easy to see why Crosswoods has been dubbed the “Jewel of Citrus Heights.”
