KB Home Introduces New Homes At Westwoods Mesa

KB Home (NYSE: KBH), one of the nation’s largest and most recognized homebuilders, invites homebuyers to its newest Denver-area community, Westwoods Mesa in Arvada, where four beautifully decorated model homes are now open for daily tours. Offering its signature Built to Order™ new homes, KB Home’s Westwoods Mesa provides convenient access to downtown Denver, the foothills and mountain resorts.

“Arvada has been one of metro-Denver’s most popular areas for decades. We are excited to build our new homes in this great location,” said Matt Mandino, president of KB Home’s Colorado division. “In addition to being close to employment centers and to various retail, entertainment and outdoor attractions, Westwoods Mesa will offer paired and single-family homes that homebuyers can customize to complement their unique interests and lifestyles.”

Homebuyers at Westwoods Mesa can select from eight one- and two-story single-family home designs and six two-story paired home floor plans to build the home of their dreams. Single-family homes at Westwoods Mesa range between 1,288 and 2,606 square feet, with up to five bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths. Through KB Home’s Built to Order experience, buyers can choose from a myriad of designer choices and structural options such as a covered deck or patio, basement, or use flex space on the second-floor for an additional bedroom or loft. Single-family homes start from the low $300,000s.

For lower-maintenance living, Westwoods Mesa paired homes offer floor plans between 1,443 and 1,928 square feet, with up to four bedrooms and three baths. Homeowners can enjoy a private side yard for entertaining, pets, or gardening, and explore designer options at the KB Home Studio, a retail-like design center that showcases options for lighting, flooring, cabinetry, and more. Paired homes start from the mid $200,000s.

Residents at Westwoods Mesa can take advantage of all that Arvada has to offer, including its historic downtown area, trails, parks, and five golf courses within a five mile radius of the community, as well the highly ranked Jefferson County schools. Outdoor recreation, such as boating, swimming, fishing and cycling is available at Standley Lake. Family fun activities such as swimming, rock climbing, water park, skating and more can be enjoyed at the nearby Apex Center. Arvada will also offer easy commutes to downtown Denver with two stops on the Gold Line light rail system scheduled to open in 2016.

KB Home’s unveiling of Westwoods Mesa comes on the heels of another recent grand opening, Lyons Ridge in Morrison. Westwoods Mesa joins nine other KB Home communities currently open for new home sales in and around metro-Denver, making KB Home one of the area’s most active homebuilders.

A leader in energy- and water-efficient building practices, KB Home builds all of its new homes, including those at Westwoods Mesa, to ENERGY STAR® guidelines with WaterSense labeled faucets and fixtures that help KB homeowners conserve natural resources and can potentially translate into significant savings on monthly utility costs compared to a typical resale home.

KB homeowners will be able to monitor their energy usage right from their smartphone or tablet with a Wiser™ home management system included with every new KB home, and charge those devices without wasting excess energy with a standard USB outlet placed in the kitchen. Other ‘smart’ home technologies such as home automation, multi-room audio systems and flat-panel prewiring are also offered at KB Home’s Westwoods Mesa.

KB Home’s Westwoods Mesa is now open in Arvada. For more information, visit www.kbhome.com or call 888-KB-HOMES.
