ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--KB Home (NYSE: KBH), one of the nation’s largest and most recognized homebuilders, today announced the grand opening of its Gramercy Farms community in St. Cloud. With close proximity to Lake Nona Medical City and easy access to the Florida Turnpike and US-192, KB Home’s Gramercy Farms offers home shoppers a unique combination of beautiful homes in a great location with a wide range of resident-only perks.
A grand opening celebration is scheduled for Sunday, December 15th from noon to 4 p.m., where guests can enjoy complimentary food, entertainment and fun activities, including a rock climbing wall and photo booth. During the event, attendees will have the first opportunity to tour the community’s new, fully-furnished model homes and discover what life could be like living at Gramercy Farms.
Gramercy Farms features ten flexible floor plans that can be tailored to meet the specific needs of a wide variety of home shoppers. Homebuyers may choose from one- and two-story homes ranging between 1,787 to 3,350 square feet that can include up to six bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths and two-car garages. Pricing begins in the mid $100,000s.
With KB Home’s Built to Order homebuilding approach, home buyers at Gramercy Farms will be able to personalize their KB home to their design preferences and budget. Once they have selected their ideal floor plan, buyers are guided by a personal design consultant at the KB Home Studio to help them build a one-of-a-kind home that is unique to their style and taste.
Residents at Gramercy Farms will enjoy extensive community amenities, including a children’s playground, basketball courts, dog park and pavilion with picnic tables.
As with all new KB homes, the homes built at Gramercy Farms will be ENERGY STAR® certified, meaning they are some of the most energy-efficient available today and have the potential to save homeowners money on their utility costs, especially when compared to other new or resale homes.
To help KB homeowners better manage their energy usage, KB Home now includes an innovative Wiser™ home management system in all of its new homes, including those at Gramercy Farms, at no additional cost. The system allows homeowners to track their home’s energy consumption, in real-time, from practically anywhere. Armed with the knowledge of their home’s energy expenditures, homeowners can seek to maximize their home’s energy efficiency by reducing or shifting energy use during peak times.
Also standard in all new KB homes are built-in USB outlets, so families with smartphones, tablets and laptops can charge their devices directly into the wall. When charging is complete, the USB outlet effectively “shuts down” for less waste on electric costs.
Other technological enhancements like multi-room audio systems, digital flat-panel prewiring, and state-of-the-art security packages can all be explored at the KB Home Studio. By incorporating technology upgrades during KB Home’s Built to Order experience, homeowners can enjoy the benefits of these and other products from the day they move in.
