LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--KB Home (NYSE: KBH), one of the nation’s largest and most recognized homebuilders, is pleased to introduce two new neighborhoods within the coastal community of Playa Vista in Los Angeles: Asher, an exclusive collection of 36 contemporary three-story detached homes, and Skylar, an exquisite assortment of 93 upscale condominiums. The luxury residences at Asher and Skylar at Playa Vista – distinguished by ultra-modern design details, premium appliances, integrated outdoor living spaces, and volume ceilings – offer homebuyers one of the few remaining opportunities to purchase a new home at Playa Vista and take advantage of the ultimate live-work-play lifestyle it offers.
The stylish home designs at Asher and Skylar, some of the final blueprints by the late Southern California architect Barry Berkus, showcase the finest in luxury living and modern architectural styles. At Asher, for example, the community’s distinctive, angled floor plans maximize the living space within the homes by offering a fresh take on the ‘great room’ concept favored by today’s homebuyers.
Each of the three, three-story residences available at Asher will include a private, built-in elevator, range in size from 2,435 to 2,757 square feet, and can include up to five bedrooms, four baths and two-car garages. The community’s emphasis on outdoor living is reflected in the multiple patio and deck spaces located on every floor of the KB homes at Asher. Asher at Playa Vista was recently honored at the Pacific Coast Builders Conference (PCBC) with a Gold Nugget Award in the single-family detached home category.
The sleek designs at Skylar at Playa Vista offer home shoppers the height of comfort and class, with great room living spaces, elegant kitchens, private garages, and EV charging stations. The three one- and two-story floor plans available at Skylar range between 1,905 and 2,449 square feet, with up to four bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths and two-car garages.
Upscale standard and optional décor and structural choices available at Asher and Skylar include European-style bi-fold cabinets, wired or glass-accented stair railings, high-end stainless steel appliances, and more.
Asher and Skylar at Playa Vista represent KB Home’s celebrated return to Playa Vista, where the Los Angeles-based builder previously enjoyed success with its award-winning, LEED Platinum certified Primera Terra neighborhood, which sold out in 2012. The KB homes at Asher and Skylar also achieve LEED Platinum status through smart planning, energy efficiency, water conservation and other social and economic advantages.
“It is exciting to be back at Playa Vista, one of the few and most desirable new home communities to call L.A.’s Westside home,” said Jeffrey Mezger, president and chief executive officer of KB Home. “Playa Vista is more than a neighborhood—it’s an experience; a modern oasis filled with parks and open spaces, shops and cafes, libraries and an elementary school, all just steps from its residents’ front doors, which are always within a few square miles of the California coast and the bustling City of Los Angeles.”
Indeed, residents at KB Home’s Playa Vista communities will have walking-distance access to extensive on-site amenities, including The CenterPointe Club, a 26,000 square foot recreational facility with pools, a spa, and gym. KB homeowners at Asher will be able to head across the street to The Resort, Playa Vista’s newest activity club which will feature a 10,000 square foot fitness center, cabanas, junior Olympic pool, and more upon completion.
Playa Vista’s expansive parks, greenbelts, and open spaces, as well as outdoor concerts, movies, and weekly farmers’ market, all encourage its residents to enjoy the area’s perpetually pleasant coastal weather. Families with children are served by the newly-opened Playa Vista Elementary School, a demonstration school in partnership with Loyola Marymount University.
Residents at KB Home’s Asher and Skylar at Playa Vista will enjoy the benefits of living in a well-established and pedestrian-friendly neighborhood ideally situated near the vibrant Westside communities of Marina del Rey, Venice, Culver City, and Santa Monica. Playa Vista’s convenient location, easily accessible from the 405, Pacific Coast Highway, and Marina Freeway, puts the entire City of Los Angeles—and the ample employment, recreational, and cultural opportunities it offers – right at its residents’ fingertips.
When Playa Vista’s creative office campus tenants and residents are ready for dining out and entertainment, they soon won’t need to go far thanks to the planned “Runway at Playa Vista” lifestyle and entertainment district that new and existing KB homeowners will also enjoy. Construction on the center, which will become Playa Vista’s “downtown,” is anticipated to occupy the equivalent of four city blocks and includes new restaurants and boutiques, a gourmet grocery store and 10-screen movie theater. “Runway” will provide a unique and fresh addition to existing neighborhood services and conveniences that currently include banking and dry cleaning, Pilates and yoga, a coffee house, restaurants and a branch of the LA public library.
KB Home’s Asher and Skylar at Playa Vista are now open in Los Angeles. For more information, visit www.kbhome.com or call 888-KB-HOMES.
