Whether you’re trying to decide if now’s the best time for home buying, there are a few elements that may put you all the way over into the yes column. With over 25 years in the home building industry, we’d imagine you’d value DeNova homes’ amount of experience and commitment to quality, accessibility, and thoughtfully placed home communities.
A real bang for your buck, Drake’s Bend, one of our home communities in Lathrop, CA offers all of that, and is considered the best value for a brand new home in the River Islands area. Also within River Islands is Edgewater, which has beautiful water lots and shared boating decks as well as SOLAR included! These 2 communities have access to great schools and amenities…plus being surrounded by beauty and caring neighbors, Edgewater or Drake’s Bend would be an excellent place to land your brand new home and engrain yourself within the fabric of a brand new community!
Growing River Islands
River Islands is a fantastic and well designed master-planned community nestled in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta in Lathrop, CA. This area, interestingly enough, is being dubbed as having agricultural roots with a tech vibe. This area features a state of the art business park and a nature preserve…a small highlight juxtaposition of the two worlds coming together.
The first school for this area has been up and running since 2013, with a total of 9 schools designated for its residents: 8 elementary/middle schools and one high school. Your children will have ample opportunities for experiential and hands on learning as well as technology-based curricula, all a bicycle ride away from your brand new DeNova home! There are also a few fantastic options for post-secondary education as well. There’s ITT Technical Institute, San Joaquin Delta College, University of California – Merced, University of the Pacific, and CSU Stanislaus.
Healthful living stitched into every inch
The wonderful thing about a newly constructed community is the thoughtfulness that’s been placed into the entire design, which makes recreation extremely convenient. There are broad sidewalks and bike lanes from each neighborhood that connects to a riverside trail, schools, the Town Center, the Business Campus and large parks. There are community gathering areas and pocket parks tucked into the neighborhoods. There’s a bocce court, regional sports fields, dog parks, lakes for boating, and other various modes of water transport!
The Great Outdoors
There are plenty of options to explore and take in nature’s beauty. You’re able to camp with tents or RV – even shower as you normally would during a close to home excursion. Boat launching is available, with a play area, barbecue pits, horseshoe pits and picnic areas. Close by, you can visit Caswell Memorial Sate Park in Ripon or Oak Grove Regional Park in Stockton.
So many wonderful things to get into around Lathrop…next door to the Drakes Bend and Edgewater communities, Dell’Osso Family Farm hosts an annual pumpkin maze, holiday activities, a winter snow tubing hill and seasonal mud runs.
For sports aficionados, head out to the ballgame to watch the Stockton Ports and Modesto Nuts. Feel like playing a round? Head to the Manteca or Tracy Country Club and enjoy the beautiful greens.
Another great option is the Lathrop Skate Park. This one-of-a-kind park features one of the largest half-pipes in the Central Valley and offers a variety of skate elements to challenge the beginner and the advanced skater. What’s also great is the local community center is nearby for refreshments and restroom facilities.
Location and Accessibility
Your brand new DeNova home would be nestled at the hub of 3 major freeways: I-5, I-205, and Hwy 120. You would be about equal distance between San Francisco, San Jose, and Sacramento, getting to each destination around a little over an hour!
