Lake California Homes For Sale - Resident Wildlife - Cottonwood CA Homes For Sale Have you noticed how the meaning of words changes depending on where you live? Take for instance the word, "wildlife". I've attached a few pictures to help define what the word means to residents of Lake California and those seeking homes for sale in Cottonwood, CA. As you enter the gated community you will pass by the fishing ponds reserved, for children 12 and under. Don't be surprised if you have to slow for the resident pair of geese crossing the road. You never know where a small flock of turkeys may show up. If you are fortunate to own one of the numerous home sites that back up to the open space you are likely to be visited by a doe and her fawns.                                                     ...

LAKE CALIFORNIA'S UNDER VALUED AMENITIES COTTONWOOD CA HOMES FOR SALE I'm still amazed by the rich amenities of Lake California in Cottonwood California. Although our family has called Lake California home for almost six years I'm still learning to appreciate all we have in our community. The list of amenities includes equestrian facility, community pool, 108 acre lake, direct boat launch access to the Sacramento River as well as the 3000' private airport. Generally buyers finding amenities on this level would expect to pay high prices for such homes. But in fact Lake California's Cottonwood CA Homes for sale are surprisingly reasonable.
