These homes are scheduled to break ground next month and the neighborhoods are expected to be open for sale by early 2019. The retail value of this project is estimated to exceed $52 million.
“Ideally located on prime Visalia land in the Northwest with easy access to excellent schools, these communities will be extremely appealing to first-time and move-up buyers and young families,” said Danny Garcia, vice president of sales at SJV Homes. “We’re thrilled to provide high-quality housing at affordable prices in our hometown.”
Greystone will offer 127 traditional homes with six floor plans ranging from 1,658 to 3,205 square feet on lots ranging in size from 6,800 to 8,200 square feet with some premium lots over 10,000 square feet. Ashton Park will offer 91 garden homes with three floor plans ranging from 1,297 to 1,597 square feet on lots ranging in size from 4,700 to 6,000 square feet. These homes will feature nine-foot ceilings, pitched tile roofs, tile flooring, granite countertops, stainless appliances and two-car garages.
The new communities are located on the northeast corner of West Riggin Avenue and North Akers Street across the street from the new Ridgeview Middle School, which just opened this past year. These new residential neighborhoods are located less than four miles from downtown and about four miles east of State Route 99, a major transportation corridor that connects Fresno to the north and Bakersfield to the south.
Founded in 2013 by Joe Leal, Jim Robinson and Randy Merrill, SJV Homes closed on its 1,000th home in late December 2017, making it one of the region’s most active home builders.
The Visalia communities are SJV Homes’ 17th and 18th joint venture projects with Presidio Residential Capital, a San Diego-based real estate investment company that funds 100 percent of the projects and operations of SJV Homes.
