Public Company Information:


AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--KB Home (NYSE: KBH) today announced the grand opening of Meadows at Clearfork, a commuter-friendly collection of new homes in Lockhart. Easily accessible via U.S. Route 183 or Texas State Highway 130, the new community is convenient to Downtown Austin.

Located in the well-established neighborhood of Lockhart, home to landmark buildings, dining establishments and the official Barbecue Capital of Texas, the KB homes at Meadows at Clearfork are close to several recreational facilities, including Maple Street Park and Lockhart Soccer Complex. Nearby Lockhart State Park features a golf course, hiking and biking trails, campsites and a historic recreation hall. Lockhart Junior High School is within walking distance.

KB Home will host a grand opening celebration Saturday, July 21 from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, July 22 from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., during which attendees may tour the two elegantly appointed model homes. Additionally, refreshments and family entertainment will be provided on Saturday between 12:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. KB homebuyers at Meadows at Clearfork may choose from 14 one- and two-story floor plans that range in size from 1,400 to 2,800 square feet and include up to six bedrooms and four baths. Among the desirable design features characteristic of all the homes at Meadows at Clearfork are open kitchens, spacious great rooms and dedicated laundry rooms. Pricing begins in the low-$200,000s.

“This charming enclave of homes offers a special opportunity to own a new home in popular Lockhart,” said Ken Langston, president of KB Home’s Austin division. “Home shoppers who want to own a beautiful new home in this established and picturesque neighborhood should visit Meadows at Clearfork this weekend.”

The KB homes at Meadows at Clearfork will be built to current ENERGY STAR® 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 homebuyers between $804 to $1,284 a year in utility costs, depending on floor plan.

As part of KB Home’s distinct homebuilding process, buyers may personalize many aspects of their new home to suit their budget and preferences. After selecting their lot and floor plan, KB homebuyers can work with expert design consultants who guide them through every aspect of the process at the KB Home Design Studio, a retail-like showroom, where they may select from a plethora of design and décor choices, including countertops, cabinets, lighting, appliances and window coverings.

The KB Home sales office at Meadows at Clearfork is located at 602 Indian Blanket Street in Lockhart and is open Mondays through Thursdays from 10:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Fridays from 12:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. For more information about the KB homes at Meadows at Clearfork or KB Home’s other new home neighborhoods, visit or call 888-KB-HOMES.
