Residents at Abbot Cove can enjoy a myriad of recreational amenities nearby, including the sport fields, walking trails and an 18-hole disc golf course offered at Ed Austin Regional Park or rustic nature trails through 120 acres of woods at Jacksonville Arboretum & Gardens. The community is just a short drive to Atlantic and Neptune beaches and near St. Johns Town Center®, which offers a variety of shopping and dining establishments.

“With eight different floor plans that can be personalized to specific needs, we are confident the new KB homes at Abbot Cove will appeal to a broad range of home buyers,” said Todd Holder, president of KB Home’s Jacksonville division. “The community’s prime location approximately halfway between downtown Jacksonville and the area’s top beaches offers residents easy access to both urban amenities and charming coastal communities.”

KB Home will host a grand opening celebration at Abbot Cove Saturday, Feb. 16, 11 a.m.–2 p.m., during which attendees can enjoy refreshments and entertainment.

The KB homes at Abbot Cove 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 $1,212 and $1,536 a year in utility costs, depending on the floor plan.
