Sydney Dehlan is literally the first resident to live, work and play in Tesoro Viejo, and she couldn’t be more thrilled. Designed to be the center of economic growth for Madera County, Tesoro Viejo is a breathtaking site of about 1,600 acres of gently rolling hills and vistas with 400 acres of preserved natural open spaces, neighborhood parks and miles of trails.
She moved into the Laina model of McCaffrey Homes’ Altura collection with her four-year-old son, Hudson, and her Yorkie named Toby in May. She knows the homes inside and out because she is part of the McCaffrey Homes sales team at Tesoro Viejo.
A native of the Central Valley, Sydney envisions spending weekends riding bikes along the trails with her son and enjoying the neighborhood parks. But, the biggest selling point is the brand new elementary school that is within walking distance to her new home. Her son attended preschool at the new Hillside Elementary School this year and loved it, so she anticipates a smooth transition to kindergarten next year.
Though this is not her first time buying a home, Sydney says she still got that same overwhelming, joyous feeling when she closed escrow. And this is exactly the reason she loves her job.
“It’s the best thing in the world,” she says about selling the homes to families. “It’s awesome to see the variety of buyers – from young couples to families to empty nesters. I love that this community appeals to buyers at every phase of life”
The diversity of homes offered at Tesoro Viejo is attracting people in all stages of their lives, and the wide variety of amenities featured are drawing people to purchase homes.
The extensive list of amenities in Hillside Village include an amphitheater, which is home to “Live on the Lawn,” an outdoor concert series; a resort-style clubhouse called The Ranch House scheduled to open this Fall; two neighborhood parks; in addition to miles of trails and preserved natural open spaces.
Sydney looks forward to raising her son in the new community that is nestled at the foot of Little Table Mountain, which has a personal attachment for her. She lived in the foothills and loves the views of the Sierra foothills. She looks forward to seeing more than just her son grow here.
“Being one of the first residents of Tesoro Viejo allows me to see it grow,” she says. “It’s exciting.”
Sydney knows that she picked the right place to raise her son – a place where she lives, works, and plays.
