McCaffrey Homes Altura at Tesoro Viejo Grand Opening This Weekend


Don’t miss the grand opening of McCaffrey Homes’ new Altura neighborhood at Tesoro Viejo this weekend!  The debut of the new model homes will take place from 11am until 6pm today at Tesoro Viejo, located off Highway 41 and just minutes north of River Park. Altura will offer the first opportunity to live in this new award-winning master-planned community that delivers an unprecedented place to live, work, and play.

“We believe homebuyers will simply love this new collection of homes that were designed for today’s busy, active lifestyle,” said Ash Knowlton, president of construction for McCaffrey Homes.  “Our Altura collection is Tesoro Viejo’s inaugural neighborhood and offers three all-new floor plans with modern conveniences, minimum maintenance, and maximum style and quality.”

Starting in the low $300s, the Altura collection features two-story homes that range in size from approximately 1,580 to 2,205 square feet that go up to four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a tandem three car garage. The homes will be value packed with all the amenities that make a house feel like a home upon moving in.  And this weekend is the perfect time for home buying families to take advantage of McCaffrey’s special offer--a new appliance package (washer/dryer and refrigerator) with the purchase of a new Altura home during the Grand Opening celebration.

Altura offers home buyers flexible spaces that meet their needs with opportunities for a hobby room, super pantry, lofts, dens and an Idea Room with endless possibilities.  In addition, exteriors at Altura will feature stunning architecture in Farmhouse, Santa Barbara, and Spanish styles.

The new designs showcase an abundance of oversized windows with plenty of natural light and feature spacious master bedrooms, gourmet kitchens with granite countertops, oversized kitchen islands with seating, stainless steel appliances, and tile plank flooring.  Each home features an open design with spacious Great Room that encourages the gathering of family and friends.

Tesoro Viejo is a breathtaking site of about 1,600 acres of gently rolling hills and vistas. The community is situated at the foot of Little Table Mountain and has been thoughtfully designed to capture its scenic surroundings, offering residents views of the sloping hillsides and the dramatic Sierra foothills.  Tesoro Viejo will feature about 400 acres of permanently preserved natural open space, parks, recreational areas and miles of trails.
“We’re thrilled to build at Tesoro Viejo with its beautiful natural setting,” said Knowlton.  “Homeowners will appreciate the new neighborhood Hillside school, resort-style amenities, walking/biking trails, preserved natural open spaces, and on-site fire and sheriff services.”
Altura is located in the Hillside Village, the first of nine residential villages at Tesoro Viejo. Across from the new neighborhood is Chawanakee Unified School District’s Hillside Elementary School that serves students in transitional kindergarten through 8th grade,  which officially opened in August for the 2018-2019 school year.  The school’s state-of-the-art facilities include a library/media center, music room, outdoor learning spaces, athletic facilities with gymnasium, as well as a media production room with green screen.

All homes at Altura will be constructed with McCaffrey Homes’ Earth Sense program. From energy-efficient homes to sustainable communities, the neighborhoods and homes are built for a smarter way to live.  EarthSense enhances quality of life and protects the environment. 
Designed as a walkable community, Tesoro Viejo’s extensive trail system allows for Altura residents to enjoy a healthy lifestyle.  The diverse scenic trail system will provide miles of walking, running, and biking opportunities.  Residents of Altura will also have access to the San Joaquin River, one of our area’s most coveted natural resources. 

Altura residents will enjoy resort-style amenities at the clubhouse in Hillside Village. Designed with a contemporary rustic flair, the Ranch House features pools, splash pad and cabanas, BBQ Pavilion with event lawn, outdoor living room with fireplace, and surrounding mountain views.  And the enjoyment doesn’t stop there – Hillside Village will feature an outdoor amphitheater for fun-filled community events like outdoor concerts.

The Town Center is at the core of Tesoro Viejo and includes “The Hub,” an innovative Welcome Center where you can learn about Tesoro Viejo. AXIS, the neighborhood coffee bar and eatery, offers free trade coffee, lattes and a seasonal food menu. The Town Center will also be the home to Madera County Fire Station No. 7  and a Madera County Sheriff substation. 

To tour the new model homes, interested homebuyers are invited to visit the Altura Welcome Center, open daily from 11am until 6pm, off Highway 41 and Town Center Blvd.  Homeowners can also browse floor plans and see more details at
