KB Home Community Spotlight: Brookwood Forest in Porter, Texas

Home isn’t just about where you lay your head at night—it’s about finding a place where you feel at home. KB Home wants to highlight what makes our communities across the country diverse.


Today, we’ve traveled to Porter, Texas to visit not one but two communities, Brookwood Forest Springs and Brookwood Forest Landing.

A Natural Oasis near the Big City


Porter, Texas is just 25 miles outside of Houston, which gives you easy access to the excitement (and employment opportunities) of the big city and also enough distance to relax and enjoy the wide open space of the suburbs. Porter is also a short drive to shopping and the George Bush Intercontinental Airport (always an important concern for people on the go).

One of the best things about living outside the big city is the opportunity to take advantage of the natural scenery and all that comes with it. Brookwood Forest is close to Lake Houston, where you can enjoy gorgeous water views, fishing, kayaking and swimming. If you love sleeping under the stars then be sure to snag a campsite at the Lake Houston Wilderness Park. Not only can you spend some quality time around the campfire, but you can also enjoy the hiking and equestrian trails, which means that your family doesn’t need to worry about how to spend a weekend together.

If you’re a fan of all things Texas and theme parks, you’ll love the soon-to-be-open Grand Texas Theme Park. This exciting attraction, now under construction, will celebrate not only the history of Texas, but will also offer five roller coasters and a water park. The RV park and go-kart racing park are already open for business, and the rest of this fun zone will be completed sometime before 2019. Fun times are only 11 miles away!

Floor Plans for the Way Your Family Lives


Both communities have eight floor plans from which to choose. Whether you prefer low-maintenance one-story floor plans or like a grand two-story, Brookwood Forest has plenty of options. Depending on your individual needs, you can select from floor plans with up to 6 bedrooms, and all plans offer a 2-car garage. Everything is bigger in Texas, and that applies to the homes at Brookwood Forest. From the 8-ft. ceilings to the wide-open living spaces, you’ll never have to worry about space. Most floor plans include flex space, which can be configured into casual dining spots, kids’ play areas and everything in between.

Plan 2526 has a downstairs den that is ideal for a home office space. If you’re a fan of charades, you’ll get plenty of use out of the spacious game rooms in Plans 2596 and 2372. Large bedrooms with walk-in closets give the whole family plenty of personal space, and everyone can get their own room (a bonus if you have teenagers).

To add to the curb appeal, front yards are professionally landscaped, so your home can look great both inside and out.
