KB Home (NYSE: KBH) today announced the grand opening of Santa Rita Ranch, a commuter-friendly community situated in the popular Tucson suburb of Vail. Nestled in the foothills of the scenic Santa Rita Mountains, this new neighborhood offers ample opportunities to enjoy natural surroundings and is located within the well-regarded Vail School District. The community's convenient location near Interstate 10 provides easy access to downtown Tucson and top employers, such as the innovative companies at the University of Arizona Tech Park, Raytheon, and Caterpillar. Additionally, residents can enjoy several options for taking in nature and wildlife, including hiking, biking and camping in the nearby Santa Rita Mountains, Saguaro National Park and Coronado National Forest. Choice and value are key aspects of KB Home's unique home buying experience, and at Santa Rita Ranch, buyers will be able to select from six one- and two-story floor plans that range in size from 1,584 to 2,732 square feet, and can accommodate up to six bedrooms and three bathrooms. The community offers large home sites, and each homebuyer can personalize their lot location, exterior style, and home décor and features to best meet their lifestyle and budget. Pricing begins in the $190,000s. Like all KB homes, those offered at Santa Rita Ranch will be built to ENERGY STAR® guidelines and include WaterSense® labeled faucets and fixtures, meaning they are designed to be more energy- and water-efficient than most other typical new and resale homes. The water- and energy-saving features built into every new KB home can help homeowners save on their monthly utility bills. Area home shoppers are invited to attend a grand opening celebration on December 3rd and 4th. Santa Rita Ranch is located at 16981 S. Emerald Vista Drive in Vail, Arizona located off of S. Houghton Rd and W. Camino Del Toro.
