The homes at Heron Bay showcase popular design characteristics like gourmet kitchens overlooking great rooms, expansive suites with walk-in closets, and lofts. The community features one- and two-story floor plans with up to five bedrooms and three baths and ranging in size from approximately 1,300 to 2,800 square feet. Future community amenities will include a pool and cabana and there are no CDD fees.

“Heron Bay is convenient to major highways for a short commute to area employers. Residents will also enjoy its desirable location just minutes to beautiful west coast beaches and future community amenities, including a pool and cabana," said Doug Guy, President of KB Home’s Tampa division. “As with other KB Home communities, Heron Bay provides home shoppers with the opportunity to purchase a new KB home that can be personalized to reflect their lifestyle and needs.”

KB Home stands out from other homebuilders as the company gives homebuyers exceptional choice and control. KB Home starts by offering a wide variety of homes at an affordable price. From there, the builder gives buyers the ability to personalize their homes from floor plans to exterior elevations, from design options to where they live in the community. The KB Home team works hand in hand with homeowners every step of the way, so they have a real partner in the process.

Every KB home is designed to be ENERGY STAR® certified thanks to the quality construction techniques and materials utilized that ultimately deliver significant savings on utility bills compared to used homes. Additionally, all new KB homes are designed to deliver an enhanced indoor environment and include high performance ventilation systems, low- or zero-VOC products and other features guided by the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Indoor airPLUS standards.

The Heron Bay sales office and model homes are open for private in-person tours by appointment, and walk-in visits are welcome. Homebuyers also have the flexibility to arrange a live video tour with a sales counselor. Pricing begins from the $290,000s.
