“Gold Nugget Award winners reflect our industry’s best, brightest and most innovative architects, planners and builder/developers,” said Lisa Parrish, judging chairperson and Gold Nugget ceremonies administrator.

Now in its 57th year, Gold Nugget Awards is the largest and most prestigious competition of its kind in the nation.

“This is a significant honor to be recognized by our industry peers,” said Ash Knowlton, president of construction for McCaffrey Homes.  “McCaffrey Homes takes pride in responding to the lifestyle needs of our homebuyers with a spirit of innovation and beautiful interiors.”

The Blue Oaks model home is in the McCaffrey Homes’ Oaks Collection at Tesoro Viejo, the newest award-winning, master-planned community in Madera County.  Located in the first residential village of Hillside Village, the model was awarded for best interior merchandising for a home under $500,000.

The Oaks Collection by McCaffrey Homes sets a new standard for sophisticated living.  The collection was designed to accommodate the entertaining lifestyle with large kitchen islands, Bosch kitchen appliances, tile plank floors, granite counters with full tile backsplash, beverage refrigerators, and an optional wine storage.  The popular California Room extends the living area for entertaining outdoors.
