History of Quail Lake
Quail Lake is a lakeside community designed in 1991 by a team of architects and designers, including the award-winning architectural firm William Hezmalhalch Architects, Inc., renown landscape architect David Gates, and internationally recognized land planner Bob Odermatt. Quail Lake is a 357 acre community with a 57 acre lake that is surrounded by adjacent green vistas. In fact, over 40% of the Quail Lake community is permanent open space which allows for unblocked views of the Sierra Nevada mountains.
Not only does Quail Lake offer spectacular lake and mountain views, Quail Lake is environmentally friendly. Considered a leading green community in Clovis, Quail Lake was masterfully designed to include water recycling, groundwater recharge, wetlands preservation, and countless energy-saving and environmentally-responsible green building amenities. While other communities are just now beginning to consider green techniques, Quail Lake has always utilized environmentally building techniques.
Quail Lake provides over 700 home sites ranging from million dollar luxury custom homes to more affordable family and retirement residences. Quail Lake is designed into 5 unique harbors: Acacia, The Cove, Landmark, Mountain View, and South Bay. Each harbor is it’s own community but all of the harbors share the same Quail Lake amenities. For example, most of the homes in the Landmark harbor are lakefront, whereas the Acacia harbor homes are next to the wetlands and walking trail. The Mountain View harbor faces the Sierra Nevada.
Adjacent to Quail Lake is the Creekside community, an affordable 60 home community nestled against a winding creek. Joined by a walking bridge, Creekside residents share all of the same amenities as the Quail Lake community.
Want a brand new Quail Lake home? You can build a brand new home from scratch or buy an express move-in ready home from the local Quail Lake developer, or design and build a custom Quail Lake home on one of the few custom lots still available.
There are pluses and minuses of each choice. I’ve worked on countless transactions in Quail Lake and will help you get the very best home at the very best possible price. The seller has a team and staff working for them. Shouldn’t you?

Top Rated School
Quail Lake has its own charter school – Quail Lake Charter Environmental School – which is ranked as one of the top schools in all of California. Designed by award winning architects Dyson, Sierjin, and Janzen, the 7 acre school is located within the gated Quail Lake community and within walking distances of all Quail Lake homes.
In 2008, Quail Lake Charter Environmental School was recognized by the California Department of Education as a California Distinguished School. This award is given only to the state’s most exemplary and inspiring public schools. According to the CA Department of Education, schools selected for Distinguished School Awards are “strong, well-rounded community schools.” Quail Lake Environmental is also recognized as “among the few schools in California to receive a distinguished GreatSchools Rating of 10 out of 10.”
Quail Lake parents agree. Quail Lake’s charter school is exceptional:
“My daughter started kindergarten at Quail lake this year. I am so impressed with this school.”
“The things that my daughter has learned in such a short period of time is just amazing! We are so happy with this school!”

Quail Lake is a secure, gated community. Security patrol the community virtually around the clock. Click here to read Quail Lake’s CCRs, i.e., community rules book. Homeowners Association (HOA) dues vary depending on whether the home is lakefront or not. Non-lakefront Quail Lake homes have the same HOA dues of $165 per month. HOA dues for homes on the water are determined by the amount of lakefront footage.
