At Piney Creek Bend, KB Home will construct 170 one- and two-story homes and offer 16 distinct floor plans. With up to six bedrooms and four baths and ranging in size from approximately 1,400 to 2,800 square feet, the homes at Piney Creek Bend also feature desirable design characteristics like open floor plans, elegant master suites and dedicated laundry rooms. Pricing begins in the low-$200,000s.

Residents at Piney Creek Bend can enjoy the community’s proximity to a variety of outdoor amenities at Bob Bryant Park, such as nature trails, sports park and access to the Colorado River, as well as Fisherman’s Park, a popular riverside park which serves as the starting point for the El Camino Real Paddling Trail and June Hill Pape Riverwalk Trail that connects to Ferry Park. The community is also convenient to Lake Bastrop, which offers fishing, boating, swimming and camping and picnicking areas, and the vast pine forest at Bastrop State Park. Within a short drive, Downtown Bastrop offers a plethora of shopping, dining and entertainment establishments.

“KB Home buyers at Piney Creek Bend can design their new home to accommodate their specific needs,” said Ken Langston, president of KB Home’s Austin division. “Our dedicated team will guide KB home buyers through every step of our home buying process, resulting in the simplest path to a personalized new home.”

KB Home will host a grand opening celebration at Piney Creek Bend on Saturday, Feb. 23, 12–4 p.m., during which attendees can tour the elegantly appointed model homes. Refreshments will be provided.

The KB homes at Piney Creek Bend 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 home buyers between $948 and $1,440 a year in utility costs, depending on the floor plan.

KB Home’s distinct home building process allows buyers to personalize many aspects of their new home to suit their preferences and style. After selecting their lot and floor plan, KB home buyers 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 Piney Creek Bend sales office is located at 1502 Dragonfly Loop in Bastrop. From Hwy. 71 East, merge onto Hwy. 95 North and turn left on Cedar St. Turn right onto Carter St. to the community entrance on the left. The sales office is open Mondays-Thursdays 10 a.m.–6:30 p.m., Fridays noon-7 p.m., Saturdays 10 a.m.–7 p.m. and Sundays 11 a.m.–7 p.m. For more information about Piney Creek Bend or KB Home’s other new-home neighborhoods, visit www.kbhome.com or call 888-KB-HOMES.
