Babcock Ranch Model Spotlight: The Sungold by Homes by Towne

Babcock Ranch Model Spotlight: The Sungold by Homes by Towne

Babcock Ranch is the first solar-powered city in the nation, so it’s appropriate that one of the new model homes there is called Sungold. The Sungold is built by Homes by Towne and prospective buyers will immediately like its spaciousness. It’s the ideal single-family home, offering 2,545 square feet of living space.

When you visit the model’s website page at, you can view an interactive 3-D model, check out the photo gallery and floorplan options, and schedule a tour.

Sungold Spaciousness

The first thing you’ll notice when you walk into the Sungold model home how spacious it feels. That’s because the centralized open-concept layout of the great room seamlessly leads into the gourmet-inspired kitchen and covered lanai, making it the perfect space for quality family time. In fact, the covered lanai measures 418 square feet.

Florida living means you’ll love the front porch, which measures 208 square feet. It may bring back childhood memories when most homes had front porches where neighbors, families and friends would gather.

The Sungold has three bedrooms plus den and two bathrooms. You’ll love the three-car garage for all the extra storage space you’ll need for tools, bicycles, kayaks, and other outdoors gear for enjoying the trails and lakes around Babcock Ranch.

With prices ranging from $350,000 to $400,000, you’ll find Sungold homes in the Lake Timber and Harvest neighborhoods of Babcock Ranch.

Who is Homes by Towne?
