Kitson & Partners announced that furnished models by Homes by Towne and Stock Development are being showcased in the Lake Timber neighborhood at Babcock Ranch during the Charlotte-DeSoto BIA’s Parade of Homes March 4th through March 12th. The new 18,000-acre solar powered town is being developed by Kitson 20 minutes east of Fort Myers off Florida State Road 31 in Charlotte County just north of the Lee Civic Center. The residences at Babcock Ranch are being built to Florida Green Building Coalition Certification standards. Lake Timber’s lakefront green spaces, trail head facilities, lakeside fishing dock, observation deck, and Babcock Ranch’s first town garden will provide opportunities for connecting with nature. Lake Timber is a short walk or bike ride from Founder’s Square in Babcock’s Downtown District.

Homes by Towne’s Harvest Collection at Lake Timber includes eight floor plans ranging from 1,956 to 2,660 square feet on home sites measuring 50 or 60-feet by 130-feet. The plans are base-priced from the mid-$300’s. The Harvest Collection homes showcase Babcock’s timeless Craftsman, Farmhouse, Coastal Gulf Vernacular, Spanish, and Colonial/West Indies architectural styles. The designs include deep front porches positioned close to the sidewalks and streets.

The Sungold model presented during the Parade of Homes is the first of four models being built by Homes by Towne. The models reflect the livability and flexibility that have been incorporated in each of the Harvest Collection plans. The interiors were designed by John Fleming, Owner of the Model Home Group of Sarasota. Base-priced at $414,000, the West Indies style Sungold offers 2,545 square feet with a spacious great room and dining area, large kitchen island, and a breakfast area that offer three distinct places to dine. The plan includes three bedrooms, a den, two baths, a three-car garage, and a deck with a pool and spa. The model will include an optional pool bath. Dark-toned wood flooring, soft white backgrounds, a metal roof accent, Bahama shutters, and the home’s comfortable front porch contribute to its relaxed West Indies vibe.

Stock Development is featuring its Sebring and Destin furnished models during the Parade of Homes. Two additional models will open in early March and another is slated for completion this summer. Situated on 70 and 80-foot lakefront home sites, Stock’s floor plans are featured in Babcock’s Longleaf Collection. Each plan includes a covered front porch that allows the home to live from front to back. Norris Furniture and Interiors’ Licensed Interior Designer Deborah Chase-Schulte has combined a mix of old and new elements to create an inviting interior for the Sebring model. Warm beigey-grey backgrounds throughout the home are accented with colors that celebrate the outdoors, including citron green, sky blue, and sunset red. Flooring in the common areas is wood-look plank porcelain tile. Natural wood furnishings, board and batten details, unique elements such as an old Florida style sliding barn door connecting the dining room and kitchen, drop-down and beamed ceiling details, and doors that open the dining room to a covered front porch contribute to the home’s connection with the outdoors. The outdoor living area includes a pool and pavered deck overlooking serene lake views. Base-priced at $469,990, the Sebring’s 2,676 square feet great room plan includes a formal dining room, island kitchen, three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, and a large two-car garage.

Stock’s Destin model’s organic contemporary style combines clean lines with a mixture of materials, including concrete, wood, glass, and high-gloss finishes. Created by Soco Interiors’ Senior Designer Meredith Summersgill, the design features a palette with greys, taupes, and whites accented with orange. Flooring in the living areas is 9-inch by 36-inch wood-look plank tile that conveys a sophisticated feeling. Summersgill has incorporated wall and ceiling details, fabrics, and furnishings with finishes ranging from the great room’s distressed concrete top side tables to a petrified wood accent table in the study. The great room, island kitchen, and dining space is the heart of the Destin’s 3,191 square feet floor plan that includes four bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths, a study, three-car garage, and an outdoor living area with a pool and spa. The Destin is base-priced at $569,990.
