McCaffrey Homes has been selected to be the first builder in the new Riverstone master-planned community in southeast Madera County.


Designed especially for the new community, McCaffrey plans to debut two new models of homes at Riverstone called the Santerra and Ivy Collections.

“We’re very excited to have McCaffrey Homes as our first homebuilder,” said Tim Jones, principal of Riverstone Development. “McCaffrey is a homegrown, highly respected and experienced builder with an unwavering commitment to enduring craftsmanship—and a passion for elevating the quality of life for families in the Central Valley.”

The 2,000-acre Riverstone development will feature more than 6,500 homes, three elementary schools and a high school, more than 200 acres of parks and open space reserves as well as commercial space featuring office, service and retail businesses.

The community, which is obligated to balance its groundwater, enjoys water supplies that provide—on average—considerably more water than will be necessary to meet water demands, according to Jones.

“For more than three decades, the team at McCaffrey Homes has helped build the fabric of California’s Central Valley,” said Robert McCaffrey, CEO of McCaffrey Homes. “As our region expands to encompass the beautiful landscapes of Madera County, we’re honored to be the inaugural builder in what will be one of the Central Valley’s premier communities.”

The Santerra collection of new homes from McCaffrey Homes feature one- and two-story designs with up to 5 bedrooms. The homes range in size from 1,598 square feet to 2,880 square feet and are expected to start in the low $300,000s.

The Ivy collection feature an “Ivy League feel,” according to Jones, and will range from 2,394 square feet to 4,143 square feet, with multi-generational floor plans and up to 6 bedrooms and 4.5 baths. Those homes are expected to start in the upper $300,000’s.

Jones said Riverstone will ultimately include eight distinctive neighborhoods, “each with its own unique feel.”

McCaffrey Homes has built more than 9,000 homes and been honored nationally for the quality of its construction and service. In 2014, company founders Robert and Karen McCaffrey were inducted into the Hall of Fame by the California Homebuilding Foundation in recognition of their contribution to the homebuilding industry through their commitment to innovation, public service and philanthropy.
