Sentinel staff report–
The move-in date for the first residents in the new 260-home Mitchell Village housing development in Citrus Heights will happen later this month, according to a KB Home regional executive.

“We are pleased with the progress we have made Mitchell Village and are excited to move our first homeowners in towards the end of May,” said Adam Hieb, President of KB Home’s Sacramento division, in an email statement on Wednesday.

Hieb highlighted the “personalized” options for new homes in the Mitchell Village development, which allow buyers to customize various aspects of the homes during the construction phase, which is still underway.

The expansive, 56-acre development, formerly called Mitchell Farms, includes a large amount of open space, as a large swath down the middle of the acreage must remain undeveloped due to a 100-year flood plain associated with Arcade Creek. A meandering trail through the open space park will also connect with a future 2.9-mile trail the city is planning.

As previously reported Thursday, KB Home spokesman Craig LeMessurier told The Sentinel that floor plans in the “Oaks” community feature up to five bedrooms and three baths, and range in size from approximately 1,400 to 2,200 square feet. He said the biggest distinctive is that “they are cluster homes built on smaller home sites and accessed via private streets.” Pricing for the homes is from the mid $450,000s.

Homes in the development’s “Canyon” community begin at a slightly lower price and include several two-story floor plans with up to four bedrooms, three baths, two-car garages and range from approximately 1,300 to 2,200 square feet. LeMessurier said the homes are considered “paseo homes” which he said are “smaller and narrower with the garage in the rear, accessed via a private alley.”

Canyon homes also have side yard areas, instead of a traditional backyard. Pricing starts in the $440,000s, LeMessurier said.

The largest and most expensive homes are located in the Heritage at Mitchell Village community, accessed off Fair Oaks Boulevard. The traditional single family homes built on larger lots are one or two story and feature up to five bedrooms and three baths, ranging in size from about 1,600 to 2,300 square feet.

Pricing for homes in the Heritage community start in the $520,000s, LeMessurier said.

Home sales are currently underway, and tours of homes can be made by appointment or on a walk-in basis. Live video tours are also offered during the pandemic.
