Northwest Fresno is known for large custom homes and spectacular views, with the San Joaquin River, the bluffs and several premier golf courses all being popular options.


Buyers can find a unique variety of neighborhoods in the Northwest Fresno area, including Sierra Sky Park, the first residential aviation community in the world. Residents can land their private aircrafts, taxi down wide avenues and park in their own driveway/hangar at home.

Van Ness Extension, a popular upscale address, also runs north of Herndon. On Van Ness Extension, residents enjoy some of the largest and most expensive real estate in the San Joaquin Valley, with values typically in excess of a million dollars. The neighborhood includes a man-made lake in the exclusive Lake Van Ness community, where you can also find a private tennis club. Expect to find immaculate streets and sidewalks, mature landscaping and large private residences featuring stunning architecture.

Another popular Northwest Fresno residential area are the newer developments located north of Herndon Avenue from Milburn Avenue to Golden State Boulevard. These homes are especially popular with families and professional couples who enjoy convenient access to Hwy 99 and Herndon and nearby shopping and restaurants.
