McCaffrey Homes

An established residential developer and homebuilder with three generations of experience in California’s San Joaquin Valley is hard at work on two new communities. McCaffrey Homes this year started work on the Crownstone and Braden Court communities in Clovis, Calif. Both developments are within Loma Vista, a master planned urban village developed by the city.

The company is serving as the general contractor on the communities in addition to de­vel­oping and providing mortgage brokerage service. “We like to make the purchase process as convenient as possible for our buyers, so we provide a complete one-stop home buying ex­perience,” Vice President Karen McCaffrey says.Both communities will showcase the quality, service and attention that the company prides itself on providing. “I think we have worked very hard to deliver a value product at an affordable price,” she adds.

Community Features

The Crownstone development will consist of a total of 65 units ranging in area from 1,998 to 3,141 square feet, while the 121-unit Braden Court community homes range in size from 1,215 to 1,883 square feet, McCaffrey says.In both communities, four different floor plans are available in both one and two-story configurations. The stone and brick homes offer one of three architectural elevations – Craftsman, French or Tuscan – as well as concrete tile roofs or composition roof with 40 year manufacturer warranty. In addition, Crownstone buyers have the opportunity to add front courtyards, McCaffrey adds.
Interior amenities in both communities include 9-foot ceilings;

two-tone paint throughout the home with crown molding in the owner’s bedroom; Beech cabinets with Melamine interiors; granite kitchen islands and countertops, and ceramic tile floors at the entryways, kitchen, baths and laundry.

Community amenities include parks and walking and bike trails. As both Crownstone and Braden Court are within the larger Loma Vista ur­ban village, homeowners will have access to a larger network of about 20 miles of planned trails, along with a large network of parks, McCaffrey says. Market research and design started on both projects last year, with sales and construction beginning in 2010. Crownstone construction will be complete in 2012, while the building of Braden Court will finish in 2011 or 2012.

Efficiency Features

Homes in both the Crownstone and Braden Court communities are ENERGY STAR® qualified and GreenPoint rated for energy and resource efficiency, McCaffrey says.

Energy efficient features include:

  • A R-17 spider exterior wall insulation system and R-38 blown-in attic insulation;
  • Tankless water heaters;
  • Multi-zone central heating and air conditioning controls;
  • R-8 insulated and tightly sealed ducts;
  • Water-saving WaterSense labels bath faucets, showerheads and high-efficiency toilets;
  • Whirlpool Energy Star appliances including dishwashers;
  • A double-bin recycle center in the kitchen cabinets;
  • Weather smart irrigation controls with Solar Sync sensors;
  • High-performing ENERGY STAR® qualified windows.
Full Service

Since its founding, the third-generation family owned company has developed more than 7,000 homes in the central San Joaquin Valley, McCaffrey says. McCaffrey Homes has remained busy even during a national housing market downturn.

“We’ve adapted by introducing new products, and I think homebuyers recognize that we deliver a quality home at an affordable price,” McCaffrey adds. “We provide service long after homeowners have received the keys to the home.”

Recent recognition for McCaffrey Homes in­cludes multiple Gold Nugget Awards at the Pacific Coast Builders Conference and “People’s Choice” awards for best mortgage company sponsored by The Fresno Bee newspaper. The company is also ranked in Builder magazine’s Top 150 Builders Nationwide list.Most recently, McCaffrey Homes was ranked #1 in the nation with the highest percentage of sales from referrals (43.8 percent) in a national survey conducted by Eliant, the nation’s foremost consumer re­search company catering exclusively to the new home industry.

McCaffrey Homes is a member of the Building Industry Association, as well as the Urban Land Institute and Build It Green. In addition, the company supports Habitat for Humanity, Tree Fresno and local school districts. McCaffrey Homes is also a strong supporter of Central and Clovis Unified School Districts and has con­tributed $50,000 for playground equipment to the new Polk Elementary and donated $50,000 to provide books for the Reagan School library. Both schools are attended by children who live in McCaffrey Homes neighborhoods.

This will also be the second year that the homebuilder has partnered with Children’s Hospital of Central California for the annual McCaffrey Homes Tree Lighting Cere­mony to benefit the hospital, according to the company. Last year, the ceremony raised more than $15,000 to help provide world-class medical care to San Joaquin Valley’s children.
