With homes starting from the $200,000s, Northridge will offer exceptional, consumer-inspired homes and an array of floor plans that can be customized and personalized to provide layouts and finishes desired by today’s homeowners.

Pulte Homes, one of the nation’s most recognized and trusted brands in homebuilding for 70 years, has just announced Northridge at Babcock Ranch. This will be the newest Pulte Homes-branded community located in the desirable Babcock Ranch, America’s first solar-powered town.

The 116-acre community will include an expected 322 one- and two-story homes with options for both water and preserve views. Floor plans will offer square footage ranging from 1,400 to more than 4,600 square feet.

“Homebuyers at Northridge will benefit from Pulte’s seven-decade history of building exceptional, consumer-inspired homes,” said Richard McCormick, area president of PulteGroup’s Florida Divisions. “Our floor plans can be customized and personalized to provide layouts and finishes desired by today’s homeowners, who will enjoy excellent communication with the Pulte team throughout the building process.”

With an affordable price point from the $200’s, Northridge will be well-suited for families and other homebuyers drawn in by the community’s ideal Babcock Ranch location. Situated off Greenway Boulevard just north of the Edgewater and Edgewater Shores neighborhoods, Northridge will offer easy access to the plentiful Babcock Ranch amenities such as The Lakehouse, home to a pool, clubhouse and playground; Jack Peeples Park, which features tennis, pickleball and bocce ball courts, a full basketball court and a community field; and Founder’s Square, Babcock Ranch’s walkable downtown with shops, restaurants, outdoor recreation areas and a lakeside boardwalk and band shell.

Residents will also enjoy proximity to Crescent B Commons, a Publix-anchored shopping center coming soon. Babcock Ranch’s parks and trails plus a lake for kayaking and canoeing provide ways to get outside and stay healthy. Schools serving the new neighborhood include Babcock Neighborhood School, East Elementary School, Punta Gorda Middle School and Charlotte High School.

Northridge at Babcock Ranch is estimated to break ground on models and open for sale in late 2021.
