A beautiful home on the hill.

Nevada City is certainly known for it's charming Victorians and Bungalows,

but did you know, Nevada City is also home to some amazingly beautiful homes that are not only modern, but super-functional in regards to Green and "off-the-grid" Living. This gorgeous home is designed by Tobin Architects, a local firm with an office in Palo Alto and Nevada City. Incredible homes like this and many other are true gems in their own right. This particular home is located on a beautiful hilltop in the Bitney Springs area with stunning sunset views and rolling hills of oaks and pines dotting the landscape.

Malakoff Photo Walk

Join Erin Thiem & Kial James, from Nevada City Scenics, for a photo walk around Malakoff Diggins. We’ll meet up in the historic town of North Bloomfield. No photo experience required, this is a free event and all are welcome.

Day use/parking fee to visit the state park is $5 per car.
We encourage car pooling and access via Tyler Foote Rd rather than the unpaved, rough North Bloomfield Road access over Edwards Crossing. The buildings will not be open, but there are plenty of great photo opportunities from outside.
