KB Home recently announced the grand opening of the energy-efficient Northern Ridge Estates in Glendale.

According to a press release, “All homes built surpass Energy Star certification standards, meaning the homes have substantially lower monthly utility costs when compared to typical used homes.”

Northern Ridge Estates is at Northern and 83rd avenues, close to Westgate Entertainment District, State Farm Stadium, Gila River Arena and Desert Diamond Casino. Model homes are now open.

For the last 10 years, each KB Home has been tested to ensure it meets the standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency, which in turn should help lower the cost of home ownership. 

Home buyers who purchase a home in Northern Ridge Estates in Glendale will be able to work with the team from KB Home to personalize their abode, including the homesite, floor plan and design features like cabinets and countertops.

The new gated community will be made up of single-story homes and four floor plans. The homes will range from around 1,500 to 2,000 square feet and will include up to four bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Pricing for the Northern Ridge Estates homes will start around $260,000, and they will offer a number of features like great rooms, designer kitchens and storage space. The community also features a playground and greenbelts.

“Northern Ridge Estates is a gated enclave of attractively priced single-story homes situated in a highly desirable neighborhood,” said Kevin McAndrews, president of KB Home’s Phoenix division, in a recent press release from KB Home.

KB Home has over six decades of home building under its belt; the company is now one of the largest homebuilders in the United States. They operate in 38 markets across eight states.
