“For many, the new year brings dreams of a new place to call home,” said Chris Apostolopoulos, regional president for KB Home. “Attainably priced and commuter friendly, the KB homes at Sheldon Terrace offer area home buyers an appealing opportunity to purchase a newly built, personalized home in a desirable and established Elk Grove location.”

KB Home will host a grand opening celebration at Sheldon Terrace, Saturday, Jan. 12, 11 a.m.–2 p.m. during which attendees may tour the three elegantly appointed model homes. Refreshments will be provided.

The KB homes at Sheldon Terrace will be built to current ENERGY STAR® 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 $936 to $1,296 a year in utility costs, depending on floor plan.
