KB Home (KBH), one of the nation’s largest and most recognized homebuilders, today announced that development has commenced at Oakwood North, a new community of 39 single-family homes the builder is constructing in the heart of Raleigh. With a grand opening planned for May, KB Home’s Oakwood North will give homebuyers an exclusive opportunity to own a spacious, Built to Order™ home in a well-established Raleigh location.

Surrounded by historic landmarks and major city sites, KB Home’s Oakwood North is ideally situated in downtown Raleigh, minutes away from the Capitol building and the many renowned museums, restaurants, shops, and cultural attractions that call the city home. North Carolina State University, Peace College, and Saint Augustine’s College are also very close to Oakwood North, and the community is just a short walk to the Historic Oakwood area.

“There are very few new homeownership opportunities available in such a well-established area of Raleigh, and we are very excited to transform one of the city’s few remaining open land parcels into a vibrant new community at Oakwood North,” said Tom Sewitsky, president of KB Home’s Raleigh/Durham division. “At Oakwood North, homebuyers will find they can own a large home in a charming neighborhood while enjoying all the modern conveniences offered by the community’s prime city location. And with an interest list growing fast, we believe Oakwood North is well positioned to become one of our most popular communities in the region.”

KB Home plans to build two-story single-family homes at Oakwood North that range between 1,881 and 2,778 square feet, with up to five bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths. Because KB homes are Built to Order, homebuyers at Oakwood North will be able to personalize nearly everything about their home to their lifestyle and budget. In addition to selecting their specific lot location, floor plan and structural options, KB homeowners at Oakwood North will work one-on-one with an expert design consultant at the KB Home Studio who will walk them through the various décor, technology, and sustainability-focused components that can be incorporated in a KB home.

All KB homes at Oakwood North will be ENERGY STAR® certified and built with an array of water-conserving features such as WaterSense labeled faucets and fixtures. These and other items like radiant barrier roofing, low-E windows and advanced USB outlets that are included as standard in all KB homes will allow homeowners at Oakwood North to experience significant savings on their utility bills compared to similar resale homes in the area.

KB Home has enjoyed many years of success building its new homes in the Triangle area, and is currently open for new home sales at 10 other communities from Wake Forest to Fuquay-Varina, Durham to Clayton, and locations in between.
