RANCHO SAHUARITA, Arizona – National homebuilder, KB Home, has closed on 55 platted lots in Entrada Del Rio, and plans to develop and construct new homes on the lots located directly adjacent to Parque Del Rio. The newest neighborhood within Rancho Sahuarita, Entrada Del Rio currently has three other active builders, Richmond American Homes, Meritage Homes and Lennar.
The lots are 40’ wides platted and sold for $1.2 million ($21,200 per lot). KB Homes has another 106 lots under contract at Entrada Del Rio.
The homes in Entrada Del Rio are KB Home’s first in the community since their last neighborhood of Presidio Porvenir in the northernmost part of Rancho Sahuarita, which they finished in summer of 2018. KB Home’s new community in Entrada Del Rio will offer a collection of single-story, ranch-style homes that range from approximately 1,200- to 1,700- square-feet. The new KB homes will feature desirable design characteristics like spacious great rooms, beautiful kitchens and expansive master suites.
“KB Home has been very active throughout Tucson, acquiring new land and opening several new home communities. We recently made a strategic land acquisition in the Rancho Sahuarita master-plan, purchasing 55 new homesites,” said Amy McReynolds, President of KB Home’s Tucson division. “The area has always been a successful sub-market for KB Home. We have a long history of building in Rancho Sahuarita and our buyers are attracted to the community’s resort-style amenities and unique lifestyle.”
KB Home gives homebuyers choice and control by offering a wide variety of homes at an affordable price. From there, the builder gives buyers the ability to personalize their homes from homesites and floor plans to design features. All homes built meet or surpass ENERGY STAR® certification standards, meaning the homes have substantially lower monthly utility costs when compared to typical used homes. The KB Home team works hand in hand with homeowners every step of the way so they have a real partner in the process.
Jeremy Sharpe, Chief Operating Officer for Rancho Sahuarita said, “We are thrilled to have KB Home back and building in Rancho Sahuarita! KB has been a great partner and homebuilder in the community through the years, and we are excited that they will be providing more families the opportunity to live in our community in a beautiful new home in Entrada Del Rio.”
Homes are selling fast here. Meritage opened up in January and had 6 homes sold even before the models were constructed. Meritage is planning their “official grand opening” this April.
By the end of this month, Rancho Sahuarita expects 400 SFR lots to be sold this year.
