KB Home Community Spotlight: Trailside in Thornton, Colorado

Home isn’t just four walls. Home is community. At KB Home we’re not just building a home for you and your family to reside in, we’re building homes in communities where you can build a lifestyle.

Today, we’re traveling to visit three communities in scenic Thornton, CO, The Estates at Trailside, The Reserve at Trailside and Trailside Patio Homes.

A Home Just Outside the Mile High City

Just eleven miles north of Denver, Thornton, Colorado was just farmland until 1953 when it was incorporated into Adams County. This picturesque town is a great place for people looking to live close to but not in the middle of the big city.

Thornton is a community where your family can feel at home. There are year-round activities for family members of all ages. Colorado can’t be beat for its breathtaking views and natural wonders, so take advantage of the one of the 81 city parks and the Thornton trail system. There are golf courses, fishing and even dinosaur bones (!) to see in Thornton.


Get involved in the Thornton art scene from concerts to outdoor movies to art sales, you’ll be surrounded by the creativity of your friends and neighbors. Want to express yourself? The city of Thornton is looking for artists for their 2018 Outside the Box: Traffic Box Mural Project.

It’s All About the Floorplan

Do you prefer the ease of one-story living, or would you rather have your living spaces separated by two floors? Whatever your preference, we have a floorplan that will meet the needs of your lifestyle. The Trailside community has five models for you to choose from. The Estates offer the largest homes and homesites from 2121 square feet to 3547 square feet. Need space to store all your camping equipment, climbing gear and bicycles? All of our floorplans at The Estates come with three-car garages, and, you have the option of a two or three car garage at The Reserve, or low-maintenance living with the Patio Homes with a two car garage.


Enjoy the views from inside your home with our open floorplans. You’ll be able to see and interact with everyone from the kitchen, family room and dining room. You’ll never miss out on the action again, and hosting for the holidays will now be a breeze as you and your family interact within your home. In the Lewis, your kitchen, breakfast nook and family room all connect, and for additional living space, the dining and living room connect.


Do you want to be the place where all the neighborhood kids hangout after school, or would you prefer a home theatre space? A recreation room complete with ping pong table, perhaps? How about a sound-proofed jam space where all your Rockstar dreams can come true? All the Trailside floorplans come with an option for a basement for you to design a rec room, or wet bar or even a guest suite of your dreams. Need more flex space? In the majority of our two-story floorplans we have a loft space which is a great place for a media room, kids craft space, or a home office.

Live, Work, Play (Emphasis on the Play)

Walk outside your door at Trailside and take advantage of neighborhood amenities. Let the kids run around the 5-acre park with playground; grill and picnic with your neighbors at the community picnic area; shoot some hoops on the basketball court; throw (or kick) the ball around the sports field. You’ll never have to worry about how to spend a weekend at our Trailside community.
