KB Home (NYSE: KBH) this weekend is hosting the grand opening of Sapphire Dunes, its latest collection of new single-family homes in Lancaster, California.

Located near Highway 14 for easy commuting throughout the Antelope Valley, the San Fernando Valley and Greater Los Angeles, Sapphire Dunes is also convenient to major area employers, including Lockheed Martin Skunk Works® and Northrop Grumman®.

At Sapphire Dunes, KB Home will construct 98 single-story homes and offer five distinct floor plans. With up to five bedrooms and two baths, and ranging in size from approximately 1,400 to 2,300 square feet, the KB homes at Sapphire Dunes feature desirable design characteristics like spacious great rooms, dens and master suites. Pricing begins from the low-$300,000s.

Residents of Sapphire Dunes can enjoy the community’s proximity to several area parks which feature picnic facilities, green space and play areas. Nearby Lancaster National Soccer Center boasts 35 sports fields and multiple buildings that host a variety of recreational activities. A plethora of shopping and dining as well as entertainment options at Lancaster Marketplace and Antelope Valley Plaza are just a short drive away.

KB Home will host a grand opening celebration at Sapphire Dunes, Saturday, May 25, 11 a.m.–1 p.m., during which attendees may tour the three model homes.

“This attractive new neighborhood gives home buyers the opportunity to own a personalized home in an established area of Lancaster,” said Glen Longarini, president of KB Home’s Los Angeles/Ventura division. “The community’s convenience to multiple parks, shopping, dining, entertainment and outdoor recreation offers residents plenty of ways to enjoy their free time.”

The KB homes at Sapphire Dunes 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 homebuyers between $1,728 and $2,100 a year in utility costs, depending on floor plan.
