Granville Homes is getting ready to unveil two new model homes and the 10th Home of Hope in its Belterra neighborhood in east-central Fresno on Saturday.

At 9:30 a.m., the doors to the Tresor and the Bijou — meaning jewel and treasure in French — will open.

The two-story Tresor is a 3,104-square-foot, five-bedroom, 3 1/2-bath home. Four bedrooms including the master is on the second floor which has a loft-style living space. A bedroom with bathroom for guests, grandparents or an older child is located on the first floor.

The single-story Bijou ranges in size from 2,007 to 2,207 square feet with three bedrooms and an option for mini-suite. The house has 10-foot ceilings with an optional 12-foot sliding glass door that connects the great room with outdoor living space.

At 10 a.m., Granville officials, community organizations and city and county leaders will hold a ribbon cutting to celebrate the completion of the builder’s 10th Home of Hope.

This year’s 2,016-square-foot home, raffled off for charity, has three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a two-car garage. It comes fully landscaped with a prepaid solar lease and Granville Eco-Smart technology.

The Granville Home of Hope has raised more than $3 million since 2006. The money collected through the sale of $100 tickets will go to 10 local organizations, instead of eight, in honor of the event’s 10th anniversary.

The new recipients are EPU Children’s Center and Fresno Police Chaplaincy. The event will continue to support the Community Food Bank, Poverello House, Hinds Hospice, Assistance League, Renaissance Scholars at Fresno State, and the Foundations for Clovis, Sanger and Central Schools.

The drawing will be held on June 18.
