Santerra, the first neighborhood of the new Riverstone master-planned community in southeast Madera County, is hosting a grand opening Jan. 21-22.


Builder McCaffrey Homes will feature four new floor plans for the community, located just west of Highway 41 and Avenue 12.

Starting in the low $300,000s, the Santerra collection features one and two-story floor plans that range in size from 1,598 to 2,880 square feet and go up to 5 bedrooms and 3 ½ baths. Each home comes with expansive covered patios or “outdoor rooms” for combining indoor and outdoor entertaining.

“These homes feature fresh, new designs with features that homebuyers have been seeking, like options to expand your living space with a casita or idea room, the next big thing in home design,” said Shelly Hogan, vice president of sales for McCaffrey Homes.  “With its own bathroom and walk-in closet, the casita is great for relatives or guests. The idea room is a separate room behind the main residence that can be used as an art studio, office, pub room, and more.”

First neighborhood of the Riverstone is a new 2,000-acre community that will feature more than 6,500 homes at full build-out. Planned amenities 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, and on-site schools. It will include commercial and mixed-use space including office, service, and retail.

“McCaffrey definitely thought outside the box in their design approach for Santerra,” said Riverstone’s Nick Bruno. “In imaginative and innovative ways that you just have to see for yourself, these new homes offer a fresh spin on informal California living. We believe homebuyers will simply love this new collection of creative, family-oriented homes.”
