KB offers single-story homes in communities

KB Home, known for its built-to-order approach to new-home construction, offers its buyers a variety of floor plans and options.

Something that may be of particular interest to those in the market for a new home in Las Vegas is the abundance of new-home communities now offering single-story floor plans.

Whether buyers prefer the design aesthetic of a traditional ranch-style home or have a family member who has difficulty navigating stairs, KB Home has listened to a growing consumer demand for more one-story home design options.

The builder offers single-story homes in several communities throughout Las Vegas and the surrounding area, including those from its Michaelangelo and Van Gogh collections in the master-planned community of Inspirada in Henderson.

Buyers have six single-story floor plans to choose from at Inspirada, all priced from the high $100,000s. The homes measure from 1,771 square to more than 2,000 square feet, with as many as four bedrooms, three baths and three-car garages.

All designs feature large, great room living areas, along with walk-in closets and master bedroom suites.

Many of the plans include a den that can be converted into an additional bedroom.

Select plans offer options such as building a covered patio off the great room or adding a front porch.

All KB homes in Las Vegas, including those at Inspirada, are designed to help homeowners save money on monthly expenses by earning both the Environmental Protection Agency’s Energy Star, as well as NV Energy’s Energy Plus certification, according to company officials.

Features like programmable thermostats, radiant-barrier roofing, low-e windows and efficient heating and cooling systems all help keep household utility bills low.

To better illustrate the advantages of such a home, KB Home now includes its Energy Performance Guide in all of its new homes.

Similar to a mpg sticker on cars, the EPG provides homebuyers with estimated monthly electric and gas costs for their new home as designed, as well as valuable information on the home’s relative energy efficiency when compared to a typical new home or resale home.
