KB Home (NYSE: KBH) today announced the grand opening of Avaunce, its latest collection of single-family new homes in Bradenton, Florida.

Avaunce is a gated, commuter-friendly community convenient to Interstates 75 and 275 as well as Highways 64, 70 and 301 for easy travel throughout the greater Tampa area.

At Avaunce, KB Home will construct 139 one- and two-story homes and offer eight distinct floor plans. With up to six bedrooms and three baths and ranging in size from approximately 1,200 to 3,000 square feet, the KB homes at Avaunce also feature desirable design characteristics like open floor plans, elegant master suites and dedicated laundry rooms. The community offers waterfront home sites, and planned community amenities include a pool and cabana. Pricing begins in the low-$290,000s with no CDD fees.

Residents at Avaunce can enjoy the community’s proximity to a range of family-friendly activities. Nearby Greenbrook Adventure Park features picnic facilities, playground equipment and a multi-purpose field, while The Premier Sports Complex offers 140 acres of sports fields for soccer, football, lacrosse and rugby. Golf enthusiasts can tee-off at Rosedale Golf and Country Club, just minutes away, and Mote Marne Laboratory & Aquarium™, Marie Selby Botanical Gardens®, Nathan Benderson Park and Sarasota Jungle Gardens® offer ample opportunity to explore the natural world. Several popular local beaches, including Siesta Key, Lido Key, Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key, are close by. Shopping, dining and entertainment are available at The Mall at University Town Center, Lakewood Walk Plaza, Ellenton Outlets and the downtown districts of Lakewood Ranch® and Bradenton.

“Even though the KB homes at Avaunce can be tailored to the home buyer’s specific needs, the process is still very simple,” said Fred Vandercook, president of KB Home’s Tampa division. “The community’s convenient location and the wide selection of available floor plans and design options empowers KB homebuyers to live the way they want to live.”

KB Home will host a grand opening celebration at Avaunce on Saturday, Feb. 23, 11 a.m.—2 p.m., during which attendees may tour the two elegantly appointed model homes. Refreshments and entertainment will be provided.

The KB homes at Avaunce 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 $888 and $1,608 a year in utility costs, depending on the floor plan.
