Models by Fox Premier Builders nearing completion at Babcock Ranch

June 14, 2017 – The Florida Weekly

Camden Model HomeFox Premier Builders’ Camden and Cabin furnished models are expected to be completed by the end of this month in the Lake Timber neighborhood at Babcock Ranch, a new 18,000-acre solar powered town being developed by Kitson & Partners 20 minutes east of Fort Myers off Florida State Road 31 in Charlotte County just north of the Lee Civic Center. Completed models by Stock Development and Florida Lifestyle Homes are open for viewing in Lake Timber. Each of the homes at Babcock Ranch is being built to Florida Green Building Coalition Certification standards.

Base-priced from the $300’s and situated on 50 or 60 x 130-foot home sites, Fox’s Cottage Collection floor plans were designed by Cooter Ramsey of Allison, Ramsey & Associates and by Timberbuilt. Each plan includes a covered front porch and accommodates a SIP Panel Construction process developed by New Panel Homes. The system is durable, resistant to extreme weather, energy efficient, and cost effective.

 

The two-story, 2,029 square feet, three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath Camden model by Allison, Ramsey & Associates includes a front porch that wraps one side of the home and across a portion of the rear. The interior features a living room with a fireplace, a dining area and island kitchen, and a first-floor master suite. The upstairs offers a media room, two bedrooms, and a covered porch. The color palette includes neutral backgrounds, warm greys, charcoal finishes and yellow accents. The model includes a suspended swing on the front porch finished in a distressed yellow.

 

The two-story, 2,001 square feet Cabin model features a great room, dining, and kitchen area on the first floor, plus a master suite with a full bath. The upstairs includes a loft and a second master suite with a full bath. With its rustic style, the Cabin conveys a casual feeling. Designed by Timberbuilt, the Cabin combines the SIPs construction process with hybrid timber framing, timber exterior finishes, and interior beamed ceiling details while leaving a minimal carbon footprint. Insulspan® SIP panels reduce energy consumption and construction costs.

 

Lake Timber’s Lake House neighborhood center is expected to be completed by early July. The neighborhood is a short walk or bike ride from Downtown’s Founder’s Square, a 13-acre lakefront green featuring a waterfront boardwalk, band shell, bike, kayak, paddle board, and row boat rentals, and a splash pad. Downtown’s lakefront Table & Tap Restaurant, Curry Creek Outfitters, and Woodlea Hall are situated at Founder’s Square. Slater’s Goods & Provisions, a market offering a coffee shop, grab and go items, and an ice cream shop, will be completed this summer. The Babcock Neighborhood School will open in August. Construction of a comprehensive Wellness Center is underway.
