Wilson Homes began and remains a custom homebuilder, inspiring an uncompromising attention to design and detail that continues to this day in the construction of each home and neighborhood.
Over 50 Years Building the Valley
While their endeavors encompass multiple commercial and retail projections, the Wilson family has remained primarily focused on what they do best – residential development. Since the beginning over five decades ago, the Wilson family has been a company of firsts. It was Wilson Homes that created Fresno’s first condominium community and the first custom community at Royal Coach Estates, including Fresno’s first lakefront community. Fresno’s first master-planned community, The Dominion soon followed, as did the first gated and all Custom Home lake community, Lake Van Ness.
It was Wilson Homes that led the charge to develop Clovis in the late 90’s with their record breaking Summit, Rivage and Wyndover neighborhoods throughout the Loma Vista and the Historic Wawona Ranch areas, yet they still found time to build the elegant Smittcamp Alumni House at California State University-Fresno. Furthering their presence in Clovis, Wilson Homes tapped into their master planning expertise in creating the most desirable North Clovis community of Harlan Ranch, including multiple Wilson built neighborhoods, a country club style community center and on-site Clovis Elementary School.
The Wilson family has garnered many accolades, including numerous Gold Nugget Awards for design, industry and community awards for successful planning and development, and the most prestigious of all, the California Builder Hall of Fame Award, bestowed upon founder, Leo Wilson by the California Building Industry Hall Of Fame. Wilson Homes was instrumental in the planning and creation of Loma Vista with the City of Clovis, where they have built Summit, Camden Place, Canterbury, Chadwick, Regent Park (a neighborhood collection of Wilson Eco2 Homes), the second community for “Elev8ions,” the successful neighborhood collection that made its debut in Harlan Ranch and now L!V. It really is no wonder a Wilson built home has traditionally higher appreciation value.
