The new Arroyo Seco community in Buckeye seems to have it all: expansive great rooms that flow seamlessly into the kitchen, living room, dining room and outdoors; spacious master bedrooms and designer kitchens; ample storage space and optional three-car garages.
The community, which is being built by KB Home, celebrated its grand opening Feb. 15-16.
As Kevin McAndrews, president of KB Home’s Phoenix division, noted several homebuyers will move into Arroyo Seco in the spring.
The four single-story floor plans at Arroyo Seco feature up to four bedrooms and two baths, and range in size from around 1,700 to 2,300 square feet.
The outdoor amenities for the community are also near completion and should be open in March, McAndrews said. They include a baseball field, soccer field, playground, sports courts, greenbelts, ramadas and walking paths.
“KB Home offers a diverse selection of home designs in Buckeye including both single-story ranch homes and two-story homes at an affordable price,” McAndrews said, adding that Arroyo Seco’s location close to major freeways is another plus for residents.
“We believe Buckeye is a great West Valley submarket for KB Home for both the near- and long-term. One of our focuses is to bring affordability to the market and building in Buckeye allows us to offer price points appealing to the first-time homebuyer segment.”
McAndrew said the homes in Arroyo Seco will range from the mid $200,000s to the high $200,000s.
KB Home gives buyers the ability to personalize their homes from homesites and floor plans to design features. As McAndrew noted, all of the homes built by KB Home meet or surpass ENERGY STAR certification standards, so the homes should have substantially lower monthly utility costs when compared to typical used homes.
In addition to the new community in Buckeye, KB Home has been very active in the West Valley, McAndrews said, acquiring new land and opening several new communities in the past year.
“We currently have 10 active communities in the West Valley including Arroyo Seco, Encantada Estates and Blue Horizons Traditions and Enclaves in Buckeye, La Ventilla and Terra de Oro in Goodyear, Marbella Ranch and Northern Ridge Estates in Glendale and Cortana at Desert Oasis in Surprise,” he said.
Later this year, KB Home will open Marbella Park in Avondale, Verrado in Buckeye and Santolina in Phoenix.
“These new communities will be close to Interstate 10 and Loop 101, 202 and 303, offering convenient access to job centers, downtown Phoenix and several entertainment venues,” he said.
