Babcock Ranch surpasses 700 homes sold milestone
BABCOCK RANCH, Fla. (June 2, 2020) – Kitson & Partners, developers of Babcock Ranch, America’s first solar-powered town located just northeast of Fort Myers on Babcock Ranch Road/State Road 31, has reported 700 new home contracts through the end of May.
Babcock Ranch began marketing new homes in 2017, with the first residents moving into the town in January 2018. Today, Babcock Ranch offers homes from nine homebuilders in seven neighborhoods.
“Now more than ever, homebuyers are attracted to the vision behind Babcock Ranch – a return to a true hometown lifestyle, where everything you need to stay active, healthy, and connected is right within reach,” said Syd Kitson, Chairman, and CEO of Kitson & Partners. “Our trails, parks, and open spaces welcome residents to enjoy the outdoors, and distance learning and working from home is seamless with our one gig-per second connection.”
Babcock Ranch was created by Kitson & Partners with respect for the natural environment and the philosophy that smart growth and sustainability work hand in hand. Half of the town’s 18,000-acre footprint is set aside as greenways, parks, and expansive lakes, providing recreation and scenic backdrops for Babcock Ranch’s homes and the Founder’s Square downtown district.
Babcock Ranch homebuilders offer more than 50 home designs for nearly every lifestyle, from condominiums to villas to single-family estates ranging from 1,120 to more than 4,000 square feet. Homes appeal to young millennials, families, empty nesters, and retirees alike, with prices ranging from the low $200s to over $1.5 million. Built to Florida Green Building Coalition standards, homes emphasize energy and water conservation and offer a full gigabyte of fiber-optic connectivity.
Babcock National brings golf to Babcock Ranch with a newly opened 18-hole Gordon Lewis-designed course as the centerpiece of Lennar’s new lifestyle community.
Within Babcock Ranch’s welcoming neighborhoods, more than two dozen models and quick-delivery homes are now open or under construction by AR Homes by Arthur Rutenberg, Divco Custom Homes, Florida Lifestyle Homes, Fox Premier Builders, Lennar, Meritage Homes, Pulte Homes, Stock Classic Homes, and WCI. Many models are open for viewing daily.
