Built in 2016, this largest and most sought "Residence 3" floorplan of the KB Homes' Magnolia Trails offers a perfect opportunity for the growing family, multi-generational family, or hard-working professionals seeking low-maintenance requirements of a home.  Take advantage of this 4-bedroom + loft, 3.5-bath, 2,757sqft executive home with incredible value in the quality, layout, size, and extensive upgrades provided.

1179 S Magnolia was the Magnolia Trails Residence 3 model home, offering up a beautiful blend of all the perfect top builder upgrades available.  With the top builder-upgrades to the home (itemized below), there's simply nothing more to do, except enjoy.  The downstairs features an open-concept great room living/dining/kitchen floorplan.  All-upgraded dark-wood cabinetry is perfectly accented by the chunky speckled-grey granite counters and chef-grade stainless steel appliances.  The massive 10'x4' center island with in-island sink is an entertainer's and a chef's dream, offering space for chopping, cooking, setting, and laying out food spreads, while also hanging out with family and friends at the bartop portion of the island.  With 12 extra-wide and deep drawers PLUS 34 cabinets, you'll find it hard-pressed to use up all of the kitchen storage!  Add to that--a huge walk-in pantry for your food storage and other large items--and you've got that well thought-out kitchen you'd expect of the high-quality KB Home designers.  

The downstairs further features something that so many families eventually want or need....a first-level junior suite with a bedroom and en-suite full bathroom.  The room's size, and the fact that it is located in the opposite corner of the home, just inside of the entrance, makes the first-floor junior suite perfect for either in-law's, guests, teenagers, college-aged students, or--even income-producing room rental or exchange student housing.

Walk up the extra-wide and open stair case and come to the surprisingly large 2nd floor landing and loft.  Separating the master suite from the rest of the 2nd floor bedrooms is that 18'x16' loft space--great for secondary living room space, kids area, office, or exercise space. Leading off to the right side fo the 2nd floor presents the luxurious 19'x15' master suite, flooded with natural light.  Taking it even further, the master bedroom leads into it's en suite master bathroom of nearly 14' of length, separate shower and soaking tub, and a separate water closet.  Need more luxury?  How about an unheard of 14'x8'-sized walk-in closet!  Let's just call it another bedroom, if you need one.

To the opposite side of the 2nd floor, and nicely separated from the master bedrooom's wing, are the remaining 3 plush-sized bedrooms, with walk-in closets, a full-size laundry room, full-size dual-vanity bathroom, 2 additional linen and storage closets, and an extra-wide central landing between all rooms, which creates a great feeling of openness.  

Enjoy peaceful afternoons and evenings in the prudently-sized backyard just off the downstairs open great room.  The backyard, with a concrete patio area, synthetic grass area for kids to play and roll around on, and an elevated landscape plateau loaded with low-maintenance succulents and other landscape makes this an ideal backyard for the owners who seek a little playtime and greenery, but don't need the excessive amounts of watering or maintenace of a large yard.  Side yards on both sides offer additional walk-around space for storing grills, toys, extra backyard items, or perhaps some raised bed gardens.

With a modest $162/month HOA due, enjoy your entire front yard being maintained and watered by the HOA, thereby cutting down on your overall water costs and landscape mainenance costs.  Further, enjoy a small grassy park in the charming Magnolia Trails subdivision interior and other exterior grounds landcape.

Enjoy what new construction design offers:  open/great-room entertaining & living layouts, full-size upstairs laundry room, a fully-drywalled garage, split A/C, high-R-value home insulation, water- and energy-efficient fixtures throughout, improved-quality electrical and plumbing, recessed LED lighting, smart-controlled features, extra-wide halls, walk-in closets in bedrooms, walk-in food pantry, storage closets strategically placed for maximum use, and professionally-designed low-maintenance landscape.

This home does not stop at it's great floorplan, attention-to-detail features, and perfect setting.  It also features an incredible amount of recent upgrades above-and-beyond what you'll typically find:

  • Extensive Builder Upgrades:  full kitchen upgrade package, bathroom upgrade packages to all high-end Moen models, hardwood flooring upgrade package, carpet upgrade package, LED lighting packages, kitchen appliance upgrades to highest-options, and so much more.
