At Encantada Estates, KB Home will construct 113 one- and two-story homes in seven floor plans. With up to five bedrooms and three baths, and ranging in size from approximately 1,400 to 2,500 square feet, the KB homes at Encantada Estates feature design characteristics such as outdoor patios, spacious great rooms and elegant master suites. Pricing begins from the low-$200,000s.

Residents of Encantada Estates can enjoy many planned amenities, including two community parks, walking trails and greenbelts. The nearby Earl Edgar park offers a playground, track and multiple sports fields, and the Buckeye Town Park offers an aquatics center, skate park and museum. Several professional sporting venues, including Gila River Arena, Goodyear Ballpark, University of Phoenix Stadium and Chase Field, are within a short drive.

“At Encantada Estates, home buyers have the opportunity to build and personalize a new home amid a backdrop of stunning natural beauty,” said Kevin McAndrews, president of KB Home’s Phoenix division. “The community’s planned parks, walking trails and sweeping views will be pleasant features for this established neighborhood.”

The KB homes at Encantada Estates will be built to current ENERGY STAR® certification guidelines and include WaterSense® labeled faucets and fixtures, meaning they are designed to be more energy and water efficient than most typical new and resale homes available in the area. These energy- and water-saving features are estimated to save home buyers between $1,044 and $1,620 a year in utility costs, depending on floor plan.
