KB Home (NYSE: KBH) over the weekend announced the grand opening of Sierra, a collection of new townhomes in Vista, California.
Situated near Interstates 5 and 15 and just north of Highway 78, Sierra is also close to the Oceanside Metrolink® station, offering convenient commuting to California State University San Marcosand Palomar College and throughout San Diego County. The beach communities of Oceanside and Carlsbad, as well as LEGOLAND® California Resort, are all within a short drive of the community.
At Sierra, a community pool and barbecue area are planned along with ample guest parking. At nearby Brengle Terrace Park, residents will find a recreation center, botanical gardens, playgrounds, picnic areas and a moonlight amphitheater that hosts a variety of seasonal events.
KB Home will be constructing 60 townhomes in total and offering three distinct floor plans. Ranging in size from 1,600 to 1,900 square feet, with three bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms, the KB homes at Sierra also feature such desirable design characteristics as dedicated laundry rooms, spacious great rooms and elegant master suites. Pricing begins in the low-$500,000s, with no Mello-Roos, a uniquely Californian mechanism for raising taxes through referendum.
“The KB homes at Sierra are ideal for home buyers looking for excellent community amenities in a prime Southern California location,” said Steve Ruffner, regional general manager of KB Home’s Coastal division. “This weekend is the perfect time to come and imagine the possibilities of spending the next holiday season in your very own new KB home.”
The KB homes at Sierra 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 $468 and $828 a year in utility costs, depending on floor plan.
