Babcock Ranch - all towns aren't created equal. Yes, this statement is true. Babcock is special. The residences in the town's neighborhoods will present timeless architecture. The Craftsman, Farmhouse, Coastal Gulf Vernacular, Spanish, and Colonial/West Indies architectural styles, each sourced in the pre-World War II Southwest Florida regional styles, will convey a familiar, comforting look and feel.
Key Features of the Babcock Ranch Communities:
Canoe, Kayak, and Paddle-board launches
There are several launches for small boat throughout the community. For those who do not have their own boat, there are numerous rental possibilities in Babcock Ranch.
Take a dip in the luxury pool, host a family event, or simply meet with your neighbors.
Each neighborhood will provide an "old fashioned playground" where the kids can play outside, away from computers and game consoles.
Fishing off the Dock
Unwind and cast a line from the Founder's Square boardwalk or any other dock nearby.
Fitness activities from paddling, yoga, and boot camps are offered on a weekly basis year-round.
The boardwalk is an important social hub in the village. A variety of activities is frequently offered to keep the social life active. The farmer's market and concerts are only some of them.
Here your furry friend can mingle with other furry friends, while the ones without a fur can chat with each other. What a wonderful place to be.
Once completed, the active residents will enjoy more than 55 miles of hiking/biking trails.
Grow your own veggies, herbs and more. A new/old trend was reborn: The farm - to - table lifestyle. In the 50's and 60's many people grew their own veggies either in their backyard or in community gardens. All of a sudden nobody wanted to get his hands dirty anymore. However, the commitment to the natural world and the connection to nature includes activities like growing your own veggies as well. Now, people have to learn again how to keep the parsley alive.
Founder's Square is the name of the community marketplace designed to become a vibrant, bustling 9,000 sqft meeting point. A cafe', a market, a ice cream shop, a school, and the outfitter store are the focal point right now. More and more will be added within the next months.
Super-Fast Fiber Internet
Internet as fast as you'll freak! Every residence will be connected to a super-fast, fiber-optic internet grid. With a lightning fast 1,000 Mbps , residents can download a 2 hr movie in seconds. The internet is designed for residents in mind who run a business from home.
Weekly, quarterly and annual events keep those resident busy who like to mingle with other people.
At this point, the first charter school is accepting students grade 1 - 8. Once the community has grown bigger, there will be more schools, including a high school, added.
