New Models at Poet's Crossing in Fresno Showcase Homes on Huge Lots from $199,990

Tuesday, November 25, 2008 / McCaffrey Homes

Beautiful models are now open at Poet’s Crossing, a new community of one-, two-, and three-story homes in northwest Fresno that are situated on extra-large lots and brimming with standard features that look like expensive upgrades.   Starting at just $199,990, Poet’s Crossing by McCaffrey Homes is an unsurpassed value.  And, for a limited time McCaffrey is paying most of the closing costs.

            The neighborly community, which is conveniently located across the street from a planned 8-acre city park, features six floor plans ranging from approximately 1,300 to 2,500 square feet, with two to five bedrooms, two to 3½ baths, and two-car attached garages. 

            The handsome exteriors at Poet’s Crossing include a mix of Italian, Spanish and traditional architecture with impressive stone, brick and ceramic tile accents and covered porches. Exteriors also include practical amenities such as concrete tile roofs and covered patios.

            “The huge lots offered at Poet’s Crossing have been particularly popular and have contributed to the community’s impressive sales pace,” says Lauren McCaffrey Knowlton, vice president of marketing for McCaffrey Homes, noting that 12 homes were sold even before the models were constructed.  “In addition to pool-size back yards, the side yards range from 12- to 21-feet wide.  That means homes are positioned as much as 33 feet apart – offering real breathing room between homes and plenty of space for weekend toys like RVs, ski boats and ATVs.” 

            Knowlton says that the combination of low price, huge lots, incentives and location near the new Harvest Elementary School make these homes particularly attractive to first-time homebuyers.

            High quality amenities are found throughout these homes.  For example, kitchens feature an array of built-in GE kitchen appliances, including a gas cooktop, self-cleaning oven, dishwasher and microwave/hood combination.  Other practical amenities include a kitchen island, generous storage and counter space, recessed lighting, maple cabinetry and ceramic tile floors.

            Poet’s Crossing homes have earned the prestigious ENERGY STAR certification, which means they meet the strict guidelines for energy efficiency set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).  ENERGY STAR homes are typically 20 to 30 percent more efficient than standard homes, according to the EPA.

            Poet’s Crossing is located within the highly respected Central Unified School District.  Children within the neighborhood will attend the new Harvest Elementary, located one mile from the community. Entertainment venues, shopping, dining, medical facilities and the Koligian Stadium are all located nearby. There is also easy access to Highway 99.
