15 ways to reimagine home with Tesoro Viejo
Home is defined simply as a place where one lives permanently. At Tesoro Viejo, home means so much more than that. Located off Highway 41 in southeastern Madera County and 10 minutes north of River Park, the award-winning masterplanned community is re-imagining what home is.
“We carefully planned Tesoro Viejo with the very best amenities and services in mind,” said Brent McCaffrey, president of Tesoro Viejo Development. “For us, it’s more than a residential development, it’s about building community.”
This fall, Tesoro Viejo will celebrate its grand opening – from a beautiful scenic landscape with preserved natural open spaces and resort-style amenities to community activities in the Town Center, Tesoro Viejo is reimaging home in 15 specific ways.
1: A TOWN CENTER WHERE COMMUNITY COMES TOGETHER
The Town Center will be the home to restaurants, hangout spots, a Madera County Fire Station, and Madera County Sheriff substation. The Town Center is at the core of Tesoro Viejo and includes “The Hub,” an innovative Welcome Center with a neighborhood coffee bar and eatery plus multi-use offices.
2: HILLSIDE VILLAGE DELIVERS UNIQUE HOME DESIGNS AND AMENITIES
Hillside Village, the first of nine villages at Tesoro Viejo, will offer up diverse housing options to fit a wide range of lifestyles and needs, and will feature a resort-style clubhouse, an amphitheater, and neighborhood parks and scenic trails.
3: INNOVATIVE TK-8 SCHOOL IN THE HEART OF THE COMMUNITY
Designed as a true neighborhood school, Chawanakee Unified School District’s Hillside School will feature a science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) curriculum, as well as a college and career exploration program that gives students an opportunity to learn about careers in the medical field and biotechnologies. Planned to open for the 2018-19 school year, the school features state-ofthe-art facilities, including a library/ media center, music room, outdoor learning spaces, and athletic facilities with gymnasium.
4: OPPORTUNITIES TO INTERACT WITH THE NATURAL BEAUTY OF THE LAND
The 1,600 acre-site of rolling hills and vistas has been designed to capture the scenic surroundings and natural beauty of the land. The community was designed to “lie lightly on the land,” incorporating the natural landscape and maximizing opportunities for residents and visitors to interact with the natural beauty.
5: RESORT-STYLE CLUBHOUSE
Designed with a contemporary rustic flair, the Ranch House – a resort-style clubhouse – features pools, splash pad and cabanas, BBQ Pavilion with event lawn, outdoor living room with fireplace, and surrounding mountain views.
6: AMPHITHEATER FOR FUN-FILLED COMMUNITY EVENTS
Grab your friends and head to a “backyard” concert like nothing you’ve seen before. The Hillside Village outdoor amphitheater is the place to be for fun-filled community happenings.
7: WALKING AND BIKING TRAILS PROMOTES HEATHY LIFESTYLE
Designed as a walkable community, the extensive trail system allows for residents to enjoy a healthy lifestyle. The diverse scenic trail system will provide miles of walking, running, and biking opportunities.
8: ENJOYMENT OF THE SAN JOAQUIN RIVER
The San Joaquin River is one of our region’s most coveted natural resources. Tesoro Viejo residents will have access to the river with a trail system connecting the community to the river, allowing for residents to enjoy recreational activities.
9: UNPRECEDENTED OPEN SPACE
Tesoro Viejo boasts approximately 400 acres – 25 percent of the plan – of open space, including preserved natural landscapes such as corridors of riparian habitat and arroyos to help protect our wildlife and flora, neighborhood parks, recreational areas and miles of trails allowing people to connect to the great outdoors. With hundreds of acres of open space, outdoor living experience extends beyond the backyard.
10: NEIGHBORHOOD PARKS THOUGHTFULLY PLANNED THROUGHOUT THE COMMUNITY
Included in the 400 acres of open space, neighborhood parks are planned throughout Tesoro Viejo, providing residents an opportunity to enjoy outdoor space. From dog parks, playgrounds, and grassy areas to an event barn, outdoor stone fireplace, and BBQ pavilions; the neighborhoods parks provide residents endless opportunities for outdoor enjoyment.
11: COFFEE BAR AND EATERY SET A NEW STANDARD
Setting a new standard, a neighborhood coffee bar and eatery will be the place to go for Tesoro Viejo residents and visitors. Located in “The Hub” at the Town Center, the neighborhood coffee bar and eatery will deliver local flavor.
12: LOCAL FLAVOR EVENTS
Tesoro Viejo will host community happenings at the event lawn, delivering an exceptional outdoor atmosphere for community entertainment and activities. Located in the middle of the Town Center, the event lawn will house farmer’s markets and community festivals that celebrate the agricultural roots of the region, as well as honor local businesses.
13: SUSTAINABLY PLANNED COMMUNITY
Tesoro Viejo has been recognized for its innovative design and sustainable living. From reclaimed water and an on-site tree nursery to electric recharge stations and a design that promotes walkability, Tesoro Viejo’s sustainability is at the core of its design.
14: “LUCKY NUMBER 7” MADERA COUNTY FIRE STATION TO SERVE RESIDENTS FROM DAY ONE
The Madera County Fire Station – Lucky Number 7 – will serve the residents of Tesoro Viejo, as well as southeastern Madera County.
