Eureka is a charming coastal town with a lively waterfront and marina which provides relaxing views from the historic downtown district. There are plenty of thriving residential areas that continually attract new buyers and residents to the area, which creates a rather dynamic real estate market. Eureka's historic district, is called "Old Town" and it showcases some of the area's most beautiful and well-preserved Victorian homes and other classics. These architectural styles date from the 19th and early 20th centuries and include: Craftsman, Tudor, Bungalow, Cottage, and Victorian style houses, mansions, commercial buildings and homes. Some of the more notable ones were designed and built by notable architects, such as Julia Morgan and William Carson. Some were constructed entirely from old-growth redwood, logged here long ago. There is an advantage to them, too, as redwood is notoriously rot-resistant from water. Many of these styles of houses are within reach and you'll notice them when browsing the current real estate inventory and property listings.
