2017 Will be the Year of Riverstone

January 14, 2017

Madera, CA - Nearly a decade ago, a small group of real estate visionaries had a dream of creating a truly original new-home destination that goes far beyond the concept of the typical suburban planned community. That dream is Riverstone, and it’s coming true this year on Madera County lands near the intersection of Highway 41 and Avenue 12 just north of Fresno.   

The Lodge at Riverstone is a resort-style community clubhouse unlike any other. Planned amenities include a Great Room and gathering places with WiFi, state-of-the-art Fitness Center, two swimming pools and spa with poolside cabanas, outdoor bar with firepits, demonstration kitchen, community garden, outfitter’s cabin and an on-site Concierge.
The expansive exterior grounds of The Lodge at Riverstone will feature a resort-style pool and a children’s pool—both ideal for refreshing summertime fun. Residents can also gather at the outdoor bar with firepits, or lounge in style within comfortable poolside cabanas.

“It won’t be long before our first homeowner families move in and begin to experience an enjoyable way of life that’s unlike anything else in the Valley,” says developer and Fresno native, Tim Jones. “Our commitment has always been to think differently and not settle for the status quo. We continue to focus on top quality, innovative new-home designs and truly one-of-a-kind amenities…all while embracing and celebrating the historic agrarian heritage of our land.”

The community’s first family friendly amenity—The Lodge—continues to take shape and is anticipated to open this Spring. As the first of multiple community clubhouses to be built at Riverstone, The Lodge is a creatively designed, resort-style venue featuring a distinctive architecture inspired by the magnificence of the West’s National Park lodges of yesteryear.   

Within The Lodge’s expansive interior spaces, residents are free to enjoy an array of exceptional amenities including a Great Room and flexible gathering places with WiFi, and a state-of-the-art Fitness Center with advanced exercise equipment.

Just outside, The Lodge will feature a resort-style pool and spa with poolside cabanas, a children’s pool, an outdoor bar with firepit conversation areas, a demonstration kitchen and a community garden. In addition, a Concierge will be stationed in The Lodge to plan community-wide events and smaller gatherings as well as assist homeowners with nearly any need that arises.

The Lodge is just a short walk away from every home within Riverstone’s inaugural neighborhood—the Lodge District—which features stylish new residences from local, award-winning McCaffrey Homes as well as Lennar Homes, one of the most respected homebuilders in the nation.

With its Model Home Grand Opening set for next weekend, McCaffrey Homes’ Santerra collection exemplifies the California spirit with its classic architecture and a choice of four fresh and vibrant floor plans. Santerra at Riverstone offers both single and two-story open-design floor plans ranging in size from 1,598 to 2,880 square feet, with prices starting in the low $300,000s.

Next weekend’s Grand Opening will feature a live-remote radio broadcast and will be the perfect time for home-buying families to take advantage of McCaffrey’s introductory pricing as well as an excellent selection of homesites. For a sneak peak on Santerra’s floor plans, homebuyers should visit www.McCaffreyHomes.com or call (559) 673-7533.    

Construction continues on Lennar’s neighborhood of residences at Riverstone, which will feature the homebuilder’s popular Cambridge Collection of Everything’s Included® homes. The timelessly designed one- and two-story residences are anticipated to offer a choice of floor plans ranging in size from 1,877 to 3,185 square feet, with up to five bedrooms, three and one-half bathrooms and three-car garages.

Situated in the heart of the region’s path of growth, the master-planned community of Riverstone—when complete—will total approximately 6,578 single-family, attached and multi-family homes, as well as commercial and mixed-use space including office, service and retail. Amenities at Riverstone are anticipated to include walkable neighborhoods, parks and open space, multiple resort-style community clubhouses, hiking and biking trails, a dog park, a community farm, historic olive and citrus groves, on-site schools, a sustainable water supply and a nearby stretch of the San Joaquin River and adjacent lake.
