Elvis Costello should move to Clarksburg, California. In fact, I have the perfect home for sale in Clarksburg. I was thinking about this when my husband and I went to the Mondavi Center in Davis last night to see Elvis Costello perform solo. It was sort of like the old days of MTV Unplugged. Except the stage was set up to accommodate 2 performers with at least 3 guitars in both sections. At one point in the performance, Costello said, "I'd like to introduce my guest artist this evening," and he quickly dashed over to the other side of the stage, grabbed a seat and microphone, and admitted that the guest artist was him. If Costello lived in this home in Clarksburg, he could convert the garages to a recording studio. This home has covered parking for 16 cars. It's so remote that you can h...

Addition to earlier post-- I tried the sandwiches at Husick's. Yummy. A cute place with local art and wine. Great gathering spot and delicious food. The owners are really friendly. I have not yet had a chance to try it, but there's a new place to get a bite to eat in Clarksburg. It's Husick's Hardware. I've been told the sandwiches are heavenly. They also have a selection of pastries. I think I'll run over there and try one now... More soon, Cari

It's that time of year again when people descend on Clarksburg to pick the walnuts that fall from the trees along Jefferson Boulevard. It amazes me each year, how close some families let their children and pets get to the very busy road. When driving along Jefferson, the shade from the old walnut trees makes visibility tricky. If a child is standing in the road, in a patch of shade, a driver may not see them. If you or someone you know is going to engage in the walnut picking, be very careful. Park well off the road, supervise your children and pets, don't leave trash, don't break limbs, and remember YOU ARE ON PRIVATE PROPERTY, you should have permission. If you drive on Jefferson, particularly between Clarksburg Road and Netherlands Road, please be cautious. There are NUTS out there. ...

Before Winter hits, if you are looking for a nice weekend drive and a place to have lunch, I'd like to invite you to have an old fashioned hamburger, fries, and a real milkshake made with Crystal ice cream. All of this while sitting outside enjoying a gorgeous view of the Sacramento River. Where you ask? Why it's the Dinky Diner in Clarksburg. The friendly folks at the Dinky Diner will cook your burger to order and give you more than enough fries to satisfy even the hardiest of appetites. Driving directions: go North on the River Road (on the Yolo County side of the river) from Freeport Bridge until you get to Clarksburg. Once you pass the electronic "SLOW NOW" sign, you're almost there. The Dinky Diner is parked on the River side. Or take Jefferson Boulevard South out of West Sacrament...

In my posts about Clarksburg, I allude to all the pretty homes-- from charming to magnificent. I thought I would include some pictures of these beauties. One of the really nice things, that lend to the curb appeal, is homes in Clarksburg are on LAND! A bare minimum lot is a half acre. Most homes are on 20 acres or more. Often homes have a naturally occurring waterway and all have spectacular trees. Other really appealing things about Clarksburg are these: *Scarcity of homes for sale. This keeps property values high. There have been no short sales or foreclosures-- NONE. ZERO. ZIP. *There is virtually no crime as well. *Varied architecture. Every home is unique and special. There is not a single tract home here. *Small town charm. Everyone waves and smiles. Kids are innocent. Elders are ...

My husband and I just returned from Key West, Florida. It was lovely. Lots of culture, diversity, art, great food, nice weather, ocean, etc. When we returned home to Clarksburg, California, we took in deep breaths of the fresh air and just sat and listened. Ah, silence. We say it everytime we return from a vacation... "We live in paradise!" The views and sunsets are stunning. The peace and tranquility is relaxing. The friendly people are helpful and neighborly. We have constant wildlife activity-- otters, beavers, egrets, blue herons, turtles, ducks, occasional coyotes and have even had pelicans visit our waterway. Clarksburg is home to some of the best agricultural land in the California and we have access to the freshest produce anywhere and, though I am not a wine drinker, some of th...

When I first started my research into the architecture of William Raymond Yelland.  I remember getting the archive collection listing of properties designed by W. R. Yelland.  One thing stands out right away is that a large number of homes in the archives at UC Berkeley that are located in Clarksburg. I remember googling the map of Clarksburg and seeing the street map of the town and knowing that nine archived buildings are located in this one area. It's a great place to start your research into understanding this architect.  I traveled from San Leandro to Clarksburg, turned off of South River Road onto Netherlands Avenue.  It was like being back home in my "The Broadmoor" neighborhood in San Leandro. The Clarksburg Community Church is the first building you see.  It is classic William ...

Looking for a beautiful area to go for either a leisurely or hard-core-workout bike ride? I know the secret! It's Clarksburg. If you are a road bike enthusiast/cyclist you may already know this, because I pass many of you (in my car) every day and evening. Where else can you be assured of a nice Delta breeze, infrequent traffic, great scenery and motorists who make way for you AND offer a friendly wave? Why it's our little Delta Haven of Clarksurg. Map out a start point of Holland Market (in Clarksburg proper), down Netherlands Road/west, to Jeffereson Boulevard/north to one of these roads: Shortest route: Jefferson/north to Central/east which connects to Netherlands/east, back to the market. Middle length route: Jefferson/north to Clarksburg Road/east to River Road/south to Netherland...

While looking at Yolo County areas on Localism today, I noticed there are no posts on my own town of Clarksburg. I have decided to start posting information about our little haven. Since I live here and love it, I guess I could be considered the local real estate expert. In the picture below, you can see a white Egret flying away (they are very shy birds). For those who are not familiar with Clarksburg, it's a little town in the unincorporated area of Yolo County-- in the southern tip of the county. This area is the begininning of "The Delta". Clarksburg is flanked on the east side by the Sacramento River and the west side by the Deep Water Channel and is blessed constantly by the delta breezes. Clarksburg is home to some of the highest rated agricultural land in the State of California...
