The homes at Scenic Pass showcase popular design characteristics like large kitchens overlooking great rooms, expansive bedroom suites with walk-in closets, and spacious lofts. The one- and two-story floor plans feature up to six bedrooms and four baths, and range in size from approximately 1,600 to 3,400 square feet. Scenic Pass is zoned for Austin Independent School District.

“Scenic Pass’ commuter-friendly location at the Y in Oak Hill provides easy access to major highways for a quick commute to downtown Austin and area employment centers, and residents will also enjoy the nearby shopping, dining, entertainment and outdoor recreation options,” said Ken Langston, President of KB Home’s Austin division. “As with other KB Home communities, Scenic Pass provides home shoppers with 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 styles, from design choices 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 Scenic Pass sales office and model homes are open for walk-in visits and private in-person tours by appointment. Homebuyers also have the flexibility to arrange a live video tour with a sales counselor. Pricing begins from the $560,000s.
