JACKSONVILLE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--KB Home (NYSE: KBH) today announced the grand opening of Meadows at Oakleaf, its latest collection of new single-family homes in Jacksonville. Situated near Interstates 10 and 295 for easy commuting throughout the greater Jacksonville area, Meadows at Oakleaf is convenient to Naval Air Station Jacksonville and within walking distance of Oakleaf Town Center.
At Meadows at Oakleaf, KB Home will construct 204 one- and two-story new homes in seven distinct floor plans. With up to five bedrooms and three-and-a half baths, and ranging in size from approximately 1,300 to 2,400 square feet, the KB homes at Meadows at Oakleaf feature desirable design characteristics like large lots, spacious great rooms, elegant master suites and dedicated laundry rooms.

Residents at Meadows at Oakleaf can enjoy the sports fields, play equipment and picnic areas at nearby Jacksonville Heights Park and a riverfront boardwalk, kayaking and nature trails at Ringhaver Park.

“At Meadows at Oakleaf, KB home buyers will be enticed by the plethora of attractive design choices available to them as they work with our dedicated team to build their dream home,” said Todd Holder, president of KB Home’s Jacksonville division. “Moreover, our streamlined process offers a simple path to homeownership.”

The KB homes at Meadows at Oakleaf 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.
