A Fresno investor and a Clovis contractor have teamed up to build townhomes in Morro Bay.

Investor Tom DeWitt, former Pelco executive, and Bud Sturgill, president of LJS Construction in Clovis are building 14 Tuscan-style hillside homes on an old avocado orchard on Ironwood Avenue near Atascadero Road.

You might wonder why I’m writing about this project since it’s not happening in Fresno. I think it’s worth mentioning that these local guys are building homes in the waterfront city – a popular weekend getaway for Fresnans in the dead heat of summer.

Morro del Mar Village has homes that range in size from 1,291 to 2,132 square feet. The development has seven floor plans with up to three bedrooms and a bonus room. All units will have an attached two-car garage and balconies. Prices start at $499,950.
