A new community of single-family homes is scheduled to enter the construction phase in September. Renowned homebuilder KB Home will build Mirabel on 78 acres northwest of San Antonio, at the base of the Texas Hill Country, along the IH-10 corridor. It expects to hold a groundbreaking event in spring 2015.

KB Home chose a logistically perfect location for Mirabel: minutes away from major employers, retail and entertainment options, and prestigious schools, on Old Fredericksburg and Ralph Fair roads. Also in the area are the University of Texas San Antonio, Valero, NuStar, USAA, The Shops at La Conterra and The Rim.

This is not the firm’s first acquisition and development in the area. Known for its commitment to maintain and grow its business portfolio in San Antonio, KB Home currently has homes listed for sale in 25 locations in San Antonio, Boerne, Cibolo and New Braunfels.

“We are excited to be back along the IH-10 corridor and look forward to building a beautiful community among the Heritage Oak groves at Mirabel,” said Brett Dietz, president of KB Home’s Central Texas division, in a news statement. “With the extensive community amenities, spacious lot sizes and the popular home designs we plan to offer here, we believe Mirabel is poised to become one of our most popular projects when it opens next year.”

At Mirabel, the homebuilder has planned to offer four one-story and 12 two-story floor plans, ranging in size from 2,004 to 4,094 square feet and featuring as many as five bedrooms and three baths. Ten of the floor plans will show the master bedroom on the first floor, and planned amenities include a community park and pool exclusively for Mirabel’s residents. The homes will be designed to match ENERGY STAR® guidelines, with energy- and water-efficiency details. One of them is WaterSense®, a WiserTM home management system that monitors and controls the home’s energy usage as commanded by the homeowner.
