KB Home (NYSE:KBH), one of the nation’s largest and most recognized homebuilders, today announced the grand openings of two new communities in the Bay Area, Fallon Ridge at Positano in Dublin and Quail Ridge in Danville. KB Home has seen significant interest in these single-family home communities leading up to their official debuts, and anticipates strong starts for both based on robust buyer demand. “KB Home has strategically pursued land opportunities in some of the most desirable submarkets here in the Bay Area and nationally,” said Chris Apostolopoulos, president of KB Home’s Bay Area division. “Both Dublin and Danville are thriving suburbs where homebuyers want to live. And with a limited supply of homes available for sale surrounding these communities, the ability to build a brand new, energy-efficient home to order makes a KB home an especially attractive proposition.” KB Home’s Fallon Ridge is located within the popular Positano master plan, a hillside community in Dublin with sweeping views and more than 10 acres of parks and trails. KB Home’s Fallon Ridge at Positano community is scheduled to grand open Saturday, June 22, offering homebuyers their choice of four two-story floor plans between 2,089 and 2,692 square feet and up to five bedrooms and four baths. Particularly appealing features of the customizable floor plans include first-floor bedrooms and large kitchens perfect for entertaining. KB Home will celebrate the grand opening of Quail Ridge in Danville on Saturday, July 13, with a special event open to the public that includes complimentary food, games and giveaways. There are five two-story floor plans available at Quail Ridge ranging from 1,692 to 2,110 square feet, with up to four bedrooms and three baths. Located in the desirable west side of Danville, Quail Ridge is nestled on a hillside with pristine views of the surrounding hills and Mt. Diablo. With a community pool, charming cobblestone streets and a network of hiking trails, this new community offers something for everyone.
