When Castle & Cooke created Seven Oaks over two decades ago, it quickly became one of the most coveted areas in which to live in Bakersfield. The Seven Oaks legacy continues to grow with Castle & Cooke’s newest addition of Highgate at Seven Oaks. This master-planned gated community of private tree-lined streets with European accents consists of several neighborhoods designed to meet the needs of a variety of buyers and families.
Located behind two sets of privacy gates, the most prestigious of the neighborhoods within Highgate at Seven Oaks is Highgate Shires. In addition to the well-known quality of homes built by Castle & Cooke, three prominent guest builders have brought their distinctive styles to Highgate Shires to allow buyers the opportunity to build semicustom and custom homes.
The unique and diverse character of Highgate Shires is the result of a partnership between Castle & Cooke, Dave Packer Custom Homes, Gaskill Rose Luxury Home Builders and George Delfino Homes. The model home complex features exclusive models from each guest builder in addition to two Castle & Cooke model homes. Highgate Shires lot sizes begin at 8,000 square feet and range to over 10,000 square feet, making it easy for buyers to create a dream home of any size.
Castle & Cooke currently features four floor plan choices in Highgate Shires ranging from 2,587 square feet to 3,652 square feet with a variety of upgrades and room conversions to make any one of these plans the perfect home. Each home comes standard with amenities including 9-foot ceilings, quality Whirlpool appliances, abundant oversized windows to enhance natural lighting and many other features that set the homes of Highgate Shires apart from other communities.
In addition to the amenities and upgrades available to personalize a home in Highgate Shires, each home is built to strict efficiency and conservation standards.

Each Castle & Cooke home also includes an enhanced hot water delivery system that reduces the wait time for hot water to arrive at fixtures, thereby reducing water waste.
