homework space and one or two home offices in a single home. Also popular are homes with multigener­ational suites, offering the space and privacy for extended families living together.

Neighborho­od prices vary widely based on the size of the homes being offered, their location within the community and their amenities, but generally, home pricing starts in the mid-$600,000s and ranges up to more than $1 million.

The homes at River Islands are a reflection of the vision of the fine homebuilde­rs who have been selected to bring new-home designs to the community. Homes being offered today range in size from a 1,447-square-foot plan with three bedrooms all the way up to six- and seven-bedroom designs and homes with more

than 4,000 square feet of living space.

The River Islands master plan allows for approximat­ely 15,000 residences to be built on its 5,000-acre site. The land developmen­t team is always working on future areas for developmen­t in the project to ensure that builders are able to provide newhome offerings throughout the course of the year, for years to come.

River Islands has been named the bestsellin­g master-planned community in all of Northern California, and is also listed as No. 3 in the entire state.

Why does River Islands receive this accolade, year after year? River Islands Developmen­t President Susan Dell’Osso attributes the community’s success to the “amazing sense of community” created by the master plan itself, its award-winning homebuilde­rs and the residents who have chosen to put down roots in Lathrop.

Dell’Osso continues, “The River Islands we see today represents only the first phase of its developmen­t. We have plans for more lakes, more parks, some impressive sports facilities, two town centers, a business park and a transit center to accommodat­e the future Valley Link connection to Pleasanton BART, now in the planning.”
