Welcome to Gary McDonald Homes


Welcome to Gary McDonald Homes where homebuilding is not only our business, it is our passion. For nearly 45 years, it has been my privilege and good fortune to develop some of our areas most coveted residential communities. Prior projects include neighborhoods such as Lake Van Ness, The Masters Collection, Country Club at the Fort and Copper Ridge Estates. These communities have earned a reputation as some of the most prestigious and highly prized real estate in all of Fresno and Clovis.

Building upon our tradition for quality homebuilding, we introduced a new product in 2017, The Essentials. These quality homes were enthusiastically received by buyers and the first neighborhood of The Essentials sold out at a record pace. The outlook for 2018 is just as bright and we have exciting new plans and neighborhoods on the horizon, as well as our newest communities, The Bluffs at Alicante, The Essentials in Clovis and the beautiful custom community of Chelsea Downs.

If you’re looking for the height of craftsmanship, luxurious neighborhoods, and enduring investment value you’ve arrived at the right place. Please enjoy the many helpful features of this web site and let it assist you in planning your visit to one of our communities. My associates and I look forward to building your next dream home and welcoming you to a neighborhood that is just right for you.
