It’s a week of new home openings.
Benchmark Communities, who opened Vantage at Harlan Ranch in October, got the ball rolling last weekend by opening Dakota Square on Temperance Avenue in Fresno.
On Saturday, Clovis builder De Young Properties will open CountrySide, a 30-lot development at Armstrong and Ashlan avenues in Clovis. CountrySide is near the sold out 41-lot Countryview neighborhood that opened in August.
De Young is hoping to attract buyers who are looking for “extra-large” home sites. CountrySide has lots up to 20,700 square feet — big enough to park a recreational vehicle or build a pool.
The smallest De Young home site, located at its Justin Pointe neighborhood, is 6,000 square feet, said vice president Ryan De Young.
De Young’s homes range in size from 1,626 square feet to 3,484 square feet and begin in the $200,000s.
The public is invited to a pre-grand opening event between noon and 6 p.m. Saturday at the model home center at Chestnut Grove on Chestnut and Teague avenues.
