Naples, FL – August 2016 / Newsmaker Alert / In less than a year, residents will be living in homes on Babcock Ranch, the world’s first solar-powered town. Clive Daniel Home, the award-winning home furnishings retailer, is proud to have been selected by featured builder Stock Development to provide total interior design for one of the first residences in the new community.
Award-winning Clive Daniel Homes interior designers Charlie Hansen and Rebekah Errett-Pikosky were chosen to design the first Clive Daniel model on the property. Completion of their Bartow model is expected in early 2017 and will be available totally furnished. Phase One of Babcock Ranch is planned for completion in 2017 and is expected to house 1,100 residents. Upon final build out, the ranch will have nearly 20,000 homes, all powered by the sun.
According to designer Errett-Pikosky, “The interiors of the Bartow model will be very natural and inspired by the environment. With 2,822-square-feet under air, the three-bedroom home will feature an Eco-luxe design, with a study, great room, pool and two-car garage.”

Added Claudine Leger-Wetzel, VP of Sales and Marketing for Stock Development, “We are proud to work with Clive Daniel Home to bring timeless architecturally designed residences to Babcock Ranch as it continues to grow.”
Babcock Ranch is an approximately 17,000-acre planned community under development in Southwest Florida’s Lee and Charlotte Counties, approved as part of a public-private partnership with the State of Florida and local governments. The mammoth development is more than 3,000 acres larger than Manhattan.
In 2009, the company joined with Florida Power & Light to announce plans to make Babcock Ranch the first solar-powered city in the United States. Approximately ninety percent of Babcock Ranch’s total land will remain undeveloped, including more than half of the area owned by developers Kitson& Partners, to be preserved as open space, nature reserves or for agricultural use. The complex real estate transaction facilitated the largest conservation land acquisition in Florida history. The Babcock Ranch Preserve, which includes land owned by the State of Florida and by Lee County, covers eighty percent – or 73,000 acres – of the ranch’s original approximately 91,000 acres.
All commercial buildings and homes in Babcock Ranch must be certified as energy-efficient and constructed according to Florida Green Building Coalition standards. Homes will be constructed using insulated panel design with low impact landscaping that promotes water conservation and the use of solar energy.
