KB Home Community Spotlight: Cedar Brook in Houston, Texas

Finding a home that’s “just right” for you and your family starts with finding the just-right community. 

At KB Home, we strive to build communities that are convenient to schools, shopping, and entertainment, and that also provide the perfect place for our residents to become neighbors. KB Home is where friendships begin.

Today we’re visiting the Cedar Brook community in beautiful Houston, Texas.

The Atlantic magazine named Houston America’s #1 Job Creator in 2013, citing topography and geography as keys to the city’s success. You’ll find a thriving energy industry in Houston, along with health care, biomedical research, and aerospace. And our Cedar Brook community is convenient to the Energy Corridor District®, where some of the world’s most powerful energy companies are located. It’s the third largest employment center in the region with over 91,000 employees.

When you think of Houston, a certain famous space-age phrase might come to mind (“Houston, we have a problem”). But you won’t have any problem finding fun things to do in this vibrant city, beginning with Space Center Houston, which is the Official Visitors Center of NASA Johnson Space Center. Visitors can view the historic mission control facility, the Apollo 17 Command Module, a Mission Mars interactive exhibit that explores the Red Planet, and ride a tram through nearby Johnson Space Center.

When you’re ready for more down-to-earth activities, the 55-acre Houston Zoo is home to over 6,000 animals. And the city’s Museum of Fine Arts offers more than 65,000 works of art from around the world, and is considered one of the largest museums in the United States.

For a bit of fresh air, our Cedar Brook gated community is convenient to two area parks, Moritz Pech Family Park and Bear Creek Pioneers Park.

Houston, We Have No Problems

Our Cedar Brook community features ENERGY STAR® certified two-story homes with 2-car garages. You’ll have your choice of six different floor plans, ranging in size from 1663 square feet to 2315 square feet. All this flexibility means you can choose a home with anywhere from 3-5 bedrooms, and 2.5-3 baths.

An Entertaining Design

Entertaining is easy with an open concept floor plan, and you won’t need to buy a McMansion to feel like you’ve got tons of room for guests. This layout, from Floor Plan 1930, gives you more seating options by joining the great room with the dining area and open kitchen. Now the family cook can be part of the action even during meal prep. All KB homes feature this spacious open design.


And can we just mention all the great cabinet and shelf space you’ll find in a KB home kitchen? An optional pantry is one clever way to solve every kind of storage problem imaginable. Floor Plan 2080 gives you the perfect excuse to stock those shelves with holiday treats.


Future Ready

It would only be fitting to find a space-age high-tech kitchen in a city synonymous with NASA. Explore a whole new world with brand-new appliances so efficient they almost do the cooking for you.

Home Suite Home

A private master suite with enough room for a spacious sitting area sounds like a sweet design. Floor Plan 1930 will give you plenty of room to roam.
