Inside Gold Ridge

Gold Ridge Forest offers an extraordinary opportunity to surround yourself with the natural beauty of the Sierra Mountains without sacrificing the comforts and convenience of an urban lifestyle. Gold Ridge Forests’  lush landscape, nostalgic flavor, and signature-designed homes are ideal for individuals interested in enjoying a simple, unencumbered lifestyle amid a pristine setting.

Natural Beauty

At Gold Ridge Forest, special emphasis has been placed on providing enough recreational space for residents to fully enjoy the outdoors. Each lot features its own yard, plus easy access to nearby common areas. In addition, nearly 1/3 of total acreage has been set aside as common green space, affording individuals and families plenty of opportunities to appreciate the unmatched beauty of a mountain setting.


Residents of Gold Ridge Forest care deeply about their community. Meticulous attention has been paid to ensuring that the neighborhood retains its many rarefied charms. Toward that end, the Gold Ridge Forest Homeowners Association works directly with builders, landscapers and homeowners to make decisions that will preserve the community’s integrity, as well as to organize special events that are designed to welcome newcomers and foster a sense of community.

Comfort & Convenience

The perfect home is defined as much by its location as by the beauty of the home itself. Gold Ridge Forests’ proximity to both nature and the urban area.
