Two more central San Joaquin Valley homebuilders are opening new neighborhoods this summer.

Granville Homes will unveil its new Copper River sales center and five model homes for the last phase of its Via Fiore development at 9:30 a.m. Saturday. The northeast Fresno neighborhood is the builder’s first new gated community in eight years.

The houses range in size from 2,200 to more than 3,400 square feet. Home designs include wood-tone garage doors, water-wise landscaping and an option for 12-foot sliding glass French doors.

These new homes also have smart-home features including Kevo deadbolts which use smart phones as house keys and the Nest Learning Thermostat also controllable by phone.

The sales center is located at 1607 E. Benvenuto Ave., off North Alicante and East Bella Via avenues. Prices start at $433,450.

In Clovis, De Young Properties will hold a pre-grand opening from noon to 5 p.m. Aug. 8 for its Sierra Crossing development at Sierra and Randy avenues, just west of Highway 168.

Sierra Crossing will have large home sites up to 16,000 square feet and houses up to 3,899 square feet in size with seven bedrooms. Buyers will have an option for multi-generational designs and a first-floor bedroom suite. The houses also have energy smart features and designs. Prices start in the low $300,000s.

The pre-grand opening will be held at the Clovis Welcome Center on Armstrong Avenue, south of Gettysburg Avenue. A chef demonstration will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
