Central Davis Real Estate

Central Davis, also known as “The Core,” is a high demand area where you will find many homes from the 1950s and 1960s. The area is in the heart of Davis - near great schools and biking distance from grocery stores and downtown. Residents love the area for its convenience, sense of community with fellow residents, friendly atmosphere, and the fact that it is very dog and pedestrian friendly.

The price per square foot for homes in The Core is generally at a premium compared to the rest of town. The Core is thriving with great restaurants, bars, bike shops, art galleries and boutiques. The Dresbach-Hunt-Boyer House, located at 604 Second Street, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Central Park (and its farmers market) is the happening place to be on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The UC Davis campus is nearby and this creates a dynamic downtown blend of campus staff, faculty, and students.

College Park, just west of downtown, is the most prestigious neighborhood in town. It is comprised of older homes representing a variety of architectural styles situated among beautiful gardens and shady lawns. The UC Davis Chancellor's residence is located here as well. In all, The Core is a lively and beautiful area.
