Riverstone: Haven for The Holidays
November 12, 2021
Home should be the perfect place for all of life’s celebrations, and it’s especially true at the 2,000-acre master-planned community of Riverstone just north of Fresno. The community’s beautiful new-home collections feature designs from six different homebuilders—and all are thoughtfully designed to easily embrace gathering and entertaining with family and friends.
With a new-home variety unmatched in the region, Riverstone gives today’s home-buying families plenty of options when it comes to realizing an American Dream that perfectly fits on size, style and budget. Riverstone is also known for new homes that are designed for the way families live today.
Whether it’s innovative new-home configurations that beautifully bring the outdoors in, or dedicated home offices ideal for work- and school-from-home situations, the homes at Riverstone have been thoughtfully designed to embrace it with ease.
“For many of us, the concept of home has never been more important, and it becomes even more meaningful as we approach the Holiday season,” said Riverstone’s Tim Jones. “It’s always been a special time of the year for us simply because it celebrates the warmth of family togetherness. We feel so grateful to have homebuilder partners who have crafted a wide variety of stylish and comfortable new residences that make easygoing home gatherings a pleasure. As I see more and more of our residents getting ready for family get-togethers, I’m reminded that there really is no better place than home for the Holidays.”
One of the greatest things about the Holidays—shopping and dining—will soon be available right next-door to Riverstone at the mixed-use lifestyle retail destination known as Riverwalk. Planned for more than one million square feet of commercial, Class-A office and retail space on two parcels located at Avenue 12 and Highway 41, the open-air Riverwalk is envisioned to offer a one-of-a-kind, live-work-shop-dine-play dynamic unique to the North Fresno area.
Some of Riverwalk’s first retail tenants have already been announced, including Dutch Bros. Coffee, Papi’s Mex Grill and Judy’s Donuts. A recently announced Riverwalk tenant is Blast & Brew, an American eatery and tap house that enjoys a loyal local following.
Several Riverwalk tenants are scheduled to open this winter, while others will follow throughout the new year. For retail leasing opportunities at Riverwalk, interested parties should contact Michael Arfsten or Nick Frechou at (559) 256-1700. For commercial office leasing opportunities, contact Nick Sorenson or Phil Souza
The upcoming Riverwalk as well as Riverstone’s ever-growing variety of new homes have no doubt factored into Riverstone’s nomination to receive the CVLUX Community of the Year Award. Riverstone won the prestigious accolade in 2019, 2020 and 2021 and has recently been nominated to receive the award for a fourth time.

Situated in the heart of the region’s path of growth, Riverstone—when complete—will total approximately 6,578 single-family, attached and multi-family homes. Amenities at Riverstone include walkable neighborhoods, parks and open space, a dog park, a sustainable water supply and The Lodge community clubhouse with resort-style swimming pools, a trainer-designed fitness center, demonstration kitchen, Gear Barn, outdoor gathering spaces with firepits, and ongoing monthly activities such as self-defense classes, book clubs, arts and crafts, specialty meal cooking classes and more. Future amenities are anticipated to include hiking and biking trails, a community farm and much more.

The freshwater lake eight miles from Riverstone is full of fish and ready. There’s also Millerton Lake, just 13 miles away. Happy angling!
