As a third generation homebuilder, De Young Properties has always been committed to working in harmony with the environment by building affordable homes that are more durable, energy-efficient, and healthier to live in. Sierra Crest in Clovis, Calif. meets these standards and more, which leaves little doubt as to why it’s been named Green Home Builder magazine’s “Community of the Year” for 2016.

In April 2016, with the launch of the De Young Sierra Crest community, the builder sold the entire 39 home site community prior to the completion of the first homes. Sierra Crest includes home sites up to 9,795 square feet, providing families with large backyards to enjoy time outdoors and the scenic mountain views.

Additionally, Sierra Crest marks the debut of the De Young SmartHome Icon Series, which are transformative in their approach, built with some of the most advanced energy-efficient and building science technology. These homes are designed to save homeowners money on their energy bills, allow them to live more comfortably, and help preserve the environment.

De Young SmartHome Icon Series floor plans offer contemporary designed homes up to 3,822 square feet with seven bedrooms and three-car garages. In addition, these homes offer a wide variety of selections, including multi-generational designs and a first floor bedroom suite, allowing homeowners the opportunity to personalize a home based on their lifestyle needs.

“The De Young SmartHome Icon Series has received a very positive response since launching in our first community, De Young Sierra Crest,” said Brandon De Young, Executive Vice President of De Young Properties. According to De Young, homebuyers are finding value in the Performance Sealed Attic, Advanced Framed Walls, and especially the 20-year fully pre-paid solar lease.
