KB Home Opens Windfield Community in Converse, Texas

KB Home has opened new Windfield community in Converse, Texas. Homebuyers will have their choice of more than a dozen customizable one- and two-story floor plans and the opportunity to live within minutes of the area's major highways and employment corridors. KB Home plans to construct a total of 115 single-family homes at Windfield from the builder's celebrated Sterling collection. The thirteen one- and two-story floor plans available at Windfield range from 1,516 to 2,960 square feet, and can accommodate up to six bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths with two-car garages. Not only do the KB homes at Windfield include desirable decor elements such as open kitchens, flexible loft spaces, and large master bedroom suites, the KB homes offered at Windfield are also some of the most energy-efficient available now. All KB homes sold in San Antonio are ENERGY STAR and Build San Antonio Green (BSAG) certified, meaning they are designed to be more water- and energy-efficient than typical new and resale homes available in the area. The water- and energy-saving features built into every new KB home can also help homeowners save money on their monthly utility bills.
