single-family home in an established area of Los Angeles," said Glen

for easy commuting throughout the Los Angeles metropolitan area,
Brighton offers all the conveniences and benefits of living in a dynamic
urban neighborhood."

The KB homes at Brighton will be built to current ENERGY STAR®
guidelines and include WaterSense® labeled faucets and fixtures, meaning

including countertops, cabinets, lighting, appliances and window
