KB Home is celebrating the grand opening of three new model homes at its newest community in Henderson.
Versante features the homebuilder's signature Built to Order program, Energy Star- and Energy Plus-certified new homes nestled in the foothills of Henderson, offering residents views of the valley and iconic Vegas Strip.
Be among the first to tour the new model homes 10 a.m.-7 p.m. today and enjoy catered lunch and refreshments.
Home shoppers have their choice of five floor plans ranging from 1,705 to 2,568 square feet with as many as five bedrooms, 2½ or three baths and two-car garages.
The one- and two-story homes are designed to be open and airy with great room living areas opening up to outdoor living spaces with optional covered patios.
Flexible den or loft spaces can be used in a variety of ways or converted to an additional bedroom.
One of the two-story plans allows for a downstairs bedroom suite, and other options include second-floor balconies, built-in tech desks and luxury master baths with spa tubs, dual sinks and other upgrades.
All KB homes that will be built at Versante are designed to help homeowners save money on monthly expenses by earning the Environmental Protection Agency's Energy Star as well as NV Energy's Energy Plus certification.
Features like programmable thermostats, radiant-barrier roof lining, low-e windows and efficient heating and cooling systems all help keep household utility bills low, according to company officials.
To better illustrate the advantages of such a home, the builder offers its Energy Performance Guide in all of its new homes.
Similar to a miles per gallon sticker on automobiles, the KB Home EPG provides homebuyers with estimated monthly electric and gas costs for their new home as designed. It also provides valuable information on the home's relative energy efficiency when compared to a typical new home or resale home.
The Versante sales center is located at 170 Piedmont Alps St. in Henderson and is now open daily. Hours are 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday and noon-7 p.m. Monday. From the southern Las Vegas Beltway, exit at Gibson Road. Proceed south on Gibson to Paseo Verde Parkway and turn left. Turn right into the community and continue to the sales office on the left.
