Real Estate: Wathen-Castanos back in Clovis with new development

Homebuilder Wathen-Castanos Hybrid Homes has returned to Clovis with two new developments after a nearly two-year hiatus from the area to build homes in the south Valley and Paso Robles.

Construction is underway on the model homes for Artisan, a 68-home development at Harlan Ranch, northeast Clovis’ master-planned community. The homes will be built in the northeast corner of the community where Shepherd Avenue meets Highway 168, said Peter Castanos, director of sales.

“We’re happy to be back out in the Clovis market after being in Paso Robles, Hanford, Lemoore and Visalia where we’re still building,” Castanos said. “The success of those projects in the south Valley and the Central Coast have given us this opportunity to come back to Clovis.”

The single and two-story homes at Harlan Ranch will vary in size from 1,622 to 2,495 square feet on lots that are 4,593- to 10,775-square-feet in size. Prices have not been determined yet, Castanos said.

The models are expected to be finished by December for a January opening.

Wathen-Castanos is also building large homes in its Legacy neighborhood across the street from Harlan Ranch, west of De Wolfe Avenue. The 9-lot development is almost sold out. Only two lots remain.

The Legacy homes start at 3,000 square feet and will be built on 16,000 square feet lots or larger.
