KB Home (NYSE:KBH), one of the nation’s largest and most recognized homebuilders, today announced the grand opening of its Amelia’s Park and Morningview neighborhoods in Elk Grove, a fast-growing suburb served by top-rated schools. Conveniently located three miles east of the 99 Freeway at Calvine Road, KB Home’s Amelia’s Park and Morningview communities offer home shoppers the unique opportunity to own a brand new Built to Order™ KB home in one of the area’s most sought-after submarkets. The release of homes for sale at KB Home’s Amelia’s Park and Morningview communities follows the successful grand opening of the builder’s Garden Grove collection of single-family homes earlier this year. Continuing its aggressive expansion in the region, in July, KB Home announced a major acquisition in Roseville’s WestPark master-plan for a new development scheduled to open to home shoppers in spring 2014. “We are very proud of our growth in Sacramento County this year, and are excited to deliver the American dream of homeownership to more residents at Amelia’s Park and Morningview,” said Chris Cady, president of KB Home’s Sacramento division. “Our Built to Order homes at both Amelia’s Park and Morningview offer buyers super-sized lots and open floor plans, plus an opportunity to personalize their new home to their style, and the latest in water- and energy-saving features included to help reduce monthly utility costs.” Distinguished by 70-foot wide homesites, the KB Home floor plans at Morningview are sized from 2,052 to 2,589 square feet, with up to five bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths. High-demand features like spacious great rooms and desirable cul-de-sac homes are also available at Morningview.

With KB Home’s Built to Order approach, homebuyers get to select their homesite, floor plan, and structural options, as well as aesthetic choices like faucets and fixtures that suit their tastes and needs. For instance, in some plans, a loft space can be configured as a home office or entertainment nook, or converted into an additional bedroom.
