Master-planned communities continue to grow in popularity as large-scale, mixed-use residential developments featuring robust, curated amenities give residents the feeling of living in a self-contained town. Community amenities can include anything from parks, playgrounds and green spaces to swimming pools, ball courts, golf courses, event spaces and more. Master-planned communities offer a lifestyle all their own with onsite destinations and a sense of place and community hard to find elsewhere.
Residents of Tesoro Viejo in Madera enjoy an amenity-rich lifestyle right in their backyards thanks to the countless benefits of living in a master-planned community:
Thoughtfully Designed Community
Obvious benefits of living in a master-planned community are the many onsite amenities and activities offered. While each master plan offers its own unique lifestyle, Tesoro Viejo sits within an amenity-rich class all its own with destinations sprinkled throughout, all conveniently connected to residential villages, parks, open space, schools and the community clubhouse by a network of scenic trails.
Many are carefully planned with dedicated areas for nature to offer a serene escape from the every day. At Tesoro Viejo 10 years before community construction started, an onsite tree nursery was created with 10,000 trees, including 13 different species. Now, these large mature trees are being planted throughout the community along major streets, parks, the clubhouse, and more.
Best of the Best Builders + Home Styles
The developer of a master-planned community typically hand picks each home builder for the neighborhood, ensuring only the best of the best is offered from trusted, reliable, quality builders. For example, Tesoro Viejo Development selected De Young Properties, KB Home, and McCaffrey Homes to build the new Madera homes at Tesoro Viejo.
Another advantage of living in a master-planned community with multiple home builders is the opportunity for homebuyers to select from a wide array of home styles, floor plans, price points and design options to accommodate all generations of living. Currently, Tesoro Viejo offers homes from the $400,000s up to the $800,000s with single- and two-story options.
Outdoor recreation options are a common component of master-planned communities. Specifically, Tesoro Viejo is set on 1,600 acres of land that celebrate the area’s breathtaking surroundings with a community trail system of 14 miles of walking/biking trails that offer stunning views of the neighborhood and access to the San Joaquin River. The community’s approximate 400 acres of trails, parks, trails, preserved open space and recreational amenities offer a natural backdrop for homebuyers to enjoy including nearly 200 acres of natural open space linked by the public trails and the other near 200 acres offering parks and recreation areas programmed for all ages, even furry friends.
