KB Home Announces The Grand Opening Of Lyons Ridge In Morrison

KB Home (NYSE: KBH), one of the nation’s largest and most recognized homebuilders, today announced the grand opening of Lyons Ridge in Morrison, an idyllic new home community surrounded by sweeping foothills and the picturesque grounds of the Red Rocks Country Club golf course. The luxurious single-family homes available at Lyons Ridge feature elegant exteriors with classic Colorado stone-and-wood facades that complement the area’s natural beauty. Combined with the surrounding scenery, KB Home’s Lyons Ridge offers the tranquil charm of a mountain retreat with all of the conveniences of being near the major employment and retail centers of the greater Denver area.

Priced from the $500,000s, KB Home is introducing several new one- and two-story floor plans at Lyons Ridge that range between 1,747 and 3,606 square feet, with up to seven bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, and three-car garages. KB homes at Lyons Ridge feature open floor plans with spacious great rooms, gourmet kitchens, and optional walk-out basements. New homeowners at Lyons Ridge will be able to personalize their home at the KB Home Studio, a retail-like design center where buyers choose from a wide variety of options such as flooring, appliances, countertops, cabinets, lighting, and high-tech enhancements.

“Lyons Ridge is a one-of-a-kind community, where the spectacular local landscape provides a breathtaking backdrop for our innovative KB homes,” said Matt Mandino, president of KB Home’s Colorado division. “We designed Lyons Ridge to be a sanctuary for our homebuyers; a place where going home would feel like getting away, while still enjoying easy access to the big-city amenities that Denver has to offer.”

KB Home’s Lyons Ridge is close to major highways, as well as to an array of recreational activities in the area, including the nearby Red Rocks Amphitheater. Designated a “dark sky” neighborhood, residents at Lyons Ridge will be able to enjoy terrific views of star-studded night skies.
