At Estrella Estates, KB Home will construct 52 one- and two-story homes and offer six distinct floor plans. With up to six bedrooms and three baths, and ranging in size from approximately 1,500 to 2,700 square feet, the KB homes at Estrella Estates also feature desirable characteristics like open floor plans, covered patios, elegant master suites and design elements that can be tailored to each homebuyer’s tastes and budget. Pricing begins from the mid-$200,000s.

Residents at Estrella Estates will enjoy the community’s serene setting and views of the picturesque Catalina and Tortolita Mountains. Residents can also tee off at several area golf courses, and nearby Arthur Pack Regional Park features fields, hiking and biking trails, picnic areas and play equipment. Outdoor enthusiasts can take in the striking beauty at a number of nature preserves, including Maeveen Behan Desert Sanctuary and Trail, Saguaro National Park, and the Santa Catalina Recreation Area. Tucson Premium Outlets ® is just four miles away, and school-age children can attend schools in the Marana Unified School District.

“This new enclave of KB homes offers homebuyers a chance to own a new home in tranquil Northwest Tucson,” said Amy McReynolds, president of KB Home’s Tucson division. “Estrella Estates provides home shoppers a compelling selection of spacious and flexible floor plans from a respected homebuilder.”

KB Home will host a grand opening celebration at Estrella Estates on Saturday–Sunday, May 4–5, 10 a.m.–6 p.m., during which attendees may tour the elegantly appointed model home. Refreshments will be provided.

The KB homes at Estrella Estates 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. These energy- and water-saving features are estimated to save homebuyers between $800 and $1,344 a year in utility costs, depending on floor plan.

KB Home’s distinct home building process allows buyers to personalize many aspects of their new home to suit their budget and style. After selecting their lot and floor plan, KB homebuyers can work with expert design consultants, who will guide them through every aspect of the process at KB Home Design Studio, a retail-like showroom where they can select from a variety of design choices, including countertops, cabinets, lighting, appliances and window coverings.

The Estrella Estates sales office is located at 9030 N. Wagon Spoke Ct. in Tucson. From I-10, exit W. Cortaro Rd. heading east. Turn left on Thornydale Rd. and right on Wagon Spoke Ct. The community is on the right. The sales office is open Mondays–Thursdays, 10 a.m.–6 p.m., Fridays, noon–6 p.m., and Saturdays–Sundays, 10 a.m.–6 p.m. For more information about Estrella Estates or KB Home’s other new-home neighborhoods in Tucson, visit www.kbhome.com or call 888-KB-HOMES.
