With the recent release of new larger home sites at Babcock Ranch, Florida Lifestyle Homes is now offering buyers the opportunity to build a custom home that takes advantage of the larger lots. Babcock Ranch is a new eco-centric town being built in Charlotte County east of Fort Myers off State Road 31.
“These are premium 70-foot wide home sites on Lake Babcock, which is the largest lake in the community with 250 acres,” said Michael Knoerlein, sales professional with Florida Lifestyle Homes. “With Florida Lifestyle Homes’ in-house architectural designer, buyers have the opportunity to create a home that is exclusively their own, from the initial floor plan to every finishing touch.”
Florida Lifestyle Homes is positioned to offer the true custom build with the company’s team of construction professionals experienced in all aspects of the custom process, Knoerlein added.
“The process of custom building involves many conferences with the buyer, discussing not only the styles they prefer but also the details of their lifestyle,” he said. “We have a long list of questions, such as do they like to entertain large groups, or do they generally prefer smaller dinner parties? What features are most important: a lavish bath, a Zen spa, a fireplace? In which room do they currently spend the most time, and what is it about that room that is appealing?”
From theses questions, a general design begins to emerge. Florida Lifestyle Homes’ architectural designer can create the perfect plan for each site. Florida Lifestyle Homes’ estimator and the company’s purchasing agent assure buyers that the project will stay on budget, and several construction supervisors oversee that every detail is completed with the highest degree of craftsmanship and care.
“While many builders may offer buyers options to adapt an existing floor plan, Florida Lifestyle Homes is offering buyers the opportunity to build their dream home,” Knoerlein said. “And the new sites on Babcock Lake provide the perfect place to do exactly that.”
Knoerlein noted that buyers may see the quality construction, craftsmanship and attention to detail that is characteristic of Florida Lifestyle Homes at the company’s three models at Babcock Ranch.
A single-story home, the Taylor has four bedrooms and three baths in 2,784 square feet of living area and 4,311 total square feet. The Taylor is priced starting at $635,500, and the model is available at $895,500.
The Sydney is a great room design with two bedrooms plus a den and two full baths in 2,324 square feet of air-conditioned living space. With the front porch, a large covered lanai and a two-car garage, the home has a total of 3,507 square feet under roof. The Sydney starts at $534,500, and the model is available at $699,500.
The two-story Lauren model has four bedrooms and three baths in 4,081 square feet of air-conditioned living space. With front and rear porches and two-car garage, the home has 5,540 total square feet. The Lauren has sold but is available for viewing.
