When it comes to homes for sale in Lake County CA, the Morgan Lane team knows the Lake County CA real estate market inside and out. This Northern California region nestles in the heart of wine country, about two hours from Sacramento and about two and one-half hours from San Francisco. Lake County has long been a center for agriculture and viticulture, and proudly boasts more than 100 labels of wine made from the region's Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon wine grapes. Though Lake County area's products have been gaining in popularity in recent years, vineyards have flourished in Lake County since the 1870s. By the early 1900s, the region had become world-famous for its wines, but then prohibition hit and many vineyards were replaced with fruit and nut orchards. About 50 years ago, the famed Napa Valley just next door, vintners rediscovered Lake County's rich, red soils and the wine industry flourished once again.

But Lake County CA real estate isn't just so desirable due to its proximity to wine country; the region is also home to Clear Lake, the largest natural freshwater lake in California and one of the oldest lakes on the continent. Not only is Clear Lake one of the best fishing lakes in the U.S., it's also home to a range of wildlife, from bald eagles to Tule elk. Clear Lake has more than 100 miles of shoreline, making it a popular destination for residents and visitors who seek scenic views and recreational opportunities such as boating, water skiing, hiking, camping and bird watching. Many homes for sale in Lake County CA offer lakefront living in shoreline towns such as Kelseyville and Lakeport.

Along with all of the recreation on and around the lake, Lake County CA real estate also offers proximity to a rich cultural life. Residents can watch live performances at the Lake County Repertory Theater or the Clear Lake Performing Arts Center, or listen to classical music performed by the Lake County Symphony Orchestra, or the Lake County Youth Orchestra. The Lake County Arts Council sponsors regular art walks in the many galleries that line the downtown streets of Lake County villages, while the Lake County Historic Courthouse Museum, the Lower Lake Historic Schoolhouse Museum and the Stone House Museum offer glimpses into the region's cultural and geologic past.
