The homes offered at the new Sonterra communities showcase popular design characteristics like gourmet kitchens overlooking expansive great rooms, master suites with walk-in closets, and spacious lofts. The one- and two-story floor plans feature up to five bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths, and range in size from approximately 1,000 to 2,800 square feet.

“KB Home is excited to expand our presence with three new, single-family home communities in the Sonterra master plan, which offers great amenities and provides easy access to Interstate 35 for a quick commute to area employers,” said Ken Langston, President of KB Home’s Austin division. “As with other KB Home communities, Sonterra home shoppers have the opportunity to purchase a new KB home that can be personalized to reflect their lifestyle and needs.”

KB Home stands out from other homebuilders as the company gives homebuyers exceptional choice and control. KB Home starts by offering a wide variety of homes at an affordable price. From there, the builder gives buyers the ability to personalize their homes from floor plans to exterior elevations, from design options to where they live in the community. The KB Home team works hand in hand with homeowners every step of the way, so they have a real partner in the process.

Every KB home is designed to be ENERGY STAR® certified thanks to the quality construction techniques and materials utilized that ultimately deliver significant savings on utility bills compared to used homes. Additionally, all new KB homes are designed to deliver an enhanced indoor environment and include high performance ventilation systems, low- or zero-VOC products and other features guided by the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Indoor airPLUS standards.

The Sonterra model complex features six model homes. Homebuyers can schedule an appointment for a private in-person tour, and walk-in visits are welcome as well. They also have the flexibility to arrange a live video tour with a sales counselor. Pricing begins from the $220,000s.
