Proud to be part of Construction Jobs & Community Creation!

Chaparral Family Room

Chaparral Family Room

The Orange County Register recently reported California is leading the nation in construction jobs creation in July and we’re proud to be part of the jobs creation! In addition to our Gilroy community, our builder DeNova Homes is building homes around the state. They are dedicated to building quality new homes as well as creating communities.

One of the other communities in the DeNova Homes family is DeNova at Southgate in Petaluma. Back in March they helped the Petaluma National Little League team replace equipment that had been stolen. That was money was spent – the team is now winning their way through the Little League World Series!

California is well represented on the recently released Money Magazine 2012 Best 100 Places to Live list. While Gilroy wasn’t on the official list, we like to say we’re #101 because of our schools, opportunities for businesses and all around family friendly culture.

Visit Cimarron Gilroy and become part of a special community!

Congratulations to the Petaluma Little League!

Petaluma West Little League Champions

Petaluma West Little League Champions

We were thrilled to see our own Petaluma Little League win their first ever Little League World Series game against the team from Fairfield, Connecticut earlier this week. The Petaluma Little League Team holds a special place in hearts of DeNova Homes and the community at DeNova at Southgate. Back in March we were able to donate equipment after a theft left these World Series bound players without the tools of their trade – baseballs, bats, gloves and more. It is with great pleasure we say CONGRATULATIONS PETALUMA LITTLE LEAGUE!

Located in Petaluma, one of the highly rated educational systems in the state of California, our community offers the luxury and peace of mind of suburban living within driving distance of Oakland, Mill Valley, Sonoma and of course America’s Wine Country Napa Valley.
