JACKSONVILLE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 6, 2014--KB Home (NYSE: KBH), one of the nation’s largest and most recognized homebuilders, continues to expand its new home choices throughout the greater Northeast Florida market with the recent debut of two new communities in Mandarin: Whitmore Oaks and Westberry Manor.

“We are very excited to introduce these two new communities and provide more opportunities for homeownership to the residents of Mandarin,” said Todd Holder, president of KB Home’s Jacksonville division. “At Whitmore Oaks and Westberry Manor, homebuyers can enjoy the charm of established neighborhoods with convenient access to major job centers while taking advantage of the ability to build a home personalized to meet their lifestyle and budget needs.”

Single-family homes available at Westberry Manor offer two one-story and five two-story floor plans ranging in size from 2,100 to over 3,500 square feet and include practical design features such as spacious great rooms and expansive kitchens. Westberry Manor is close to area shopping, dining and recreation at nearby Julington Creek and the St. John’s River.

KB Home’s Whitmore Oaks offers three one-story and six two-story floor plans that range from 2,004 to 3,555 square feet, with up to six bedrooms and four baths. Located on Old St. Augustine Road, Whitmore Oaks offers easy access to I-95 for quick commutes. Homes at Whitmore Oaks and Westberry Manor start from the mid $200,000s and are available with no community development district fees.

KB Home offers homebuyers the chance to design and customize their homes from floor plan to structural options through its unique Built to Order™ approach. Models at Whitmore Oaks and Westberry Manor showcase the various components that can be included in a new KB home such as a covered patio for outdoor entertaining, a master bath with separate tub and shower, and a gourmet kitchen with a double oven and cooktop. Homebuyers are guided by a personal design consultant at the local KB Home Studio to help them build a home that is unique to their style and taste.

Every new KB Home is designed with energy-efficient features and comes equipped with the Wiser TM home energy management system that provides homeowners the ability to track and control their home’s energy usage remotely from a smartphone or computer. Further home automation upgrades like a security system as well as additional energy and water-efficiency options are available in the Studio.

KB Home has been building in Jacksonville for more than a decade, and with the recent openings of Whitmore Oaks and Westberry Manor, the builder has enhanced its presence in the popular Mandarin market. KB Home plans to continue to invest in this area with the upcoming grand opening of another single-family community, Abby Glen, on Sunbeam Road this summer.
