At Estrella Estates, KB Home will construct 52 one- and two-story homes and offer six distinct floor plans. With up to six bedrooms and three baths, and ranging in size from approximately 1,500 to 2,700 square feet, the KB homes at Estrella Estates also feature open floor plans, covered patios, elegant master suites and design elements that can be tailored to each home buyer’s tastes and budget. Pricing begins from the mid-$200,000s.

Residents at Estrella Estates will enjoy the community’s serene setting and views of the picturesque Catalina and Tortolita Mountains. Residents can also tee off at several area golf courses, and nearby Arthur Pack Regional Park features fields, hiking and biking trails, picnic areas and play equipment. Outdoor enthusiasts can take in the striking beauty at a number of nature preserves, including Maeveen Behan Desert Sanctuary and Trail, Saguaro National Park, and the Santa Catalina Recreation Area. Tucson Premium Outlets® is just four miles away, and school-age children can attend schools in the Marana Unified School District.

“This new enclave of KB homes offers home buyers a chance to own a new home in tranquil Northwest Tucson,” said Amy McReynolds, president of KB Home’s Tucson division. “Estrella Estates provides home shoppers a compelling selection of spacious and flexible floor plans from a respected home builder.”

KB Home scheduled a grand opening celebration at Estrella Estates on Saturday–Sunday, May 4–5, 10 a.m.–6 p.m.

The KB homes at Estrella 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 $800 and $1,344 a year in utility costs, depending on floor plan.
