Levitt Park in Rockledge, Florida - Homes For Sale - Prices are Rising in 2016.

I was reviewing my recent listing in Levitt Park subdivision when I came a cross the website which actually told the story of "The Levittowns" developments by Levitt and Sons.  I had heard of Levittown, PA before but was not familiar with Levitt and Sons and their huge development of communities across the USA.

And the Levitt communities appeared everywhere including Arizona, Callifornia, Ilinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Nevada, Georgia...practically all over!

In Rockledge, Florida. we have Levitt Park at Rockledge or officially, Buckingham at Levitt Park which, according to, opened for sales in 1964.  This was Levitt and Sons' first Florida project and was attracted by the expansion plans at Kennedy Space Center in the early 1960s. 

One of the early marketing brochures touted the "true indoor/outdoor living with finished patios and terrace areas"  with floor plans like the Alameda ($15,990), Biscayne ($17,500), Catalina ($21,500),  Delray ($19,500) and Eastwood ($20,990).   It looks like air conditioning was another $500-$600!  

Of course the year round boating, fishing, swimming and golf were prominently advertised. 

Levitt Park in Rockledge now is generally considered the area from the Fiske Blvd entrance on Levitt Parkway all the way back to its end at Murrell Road. With its proximity to excellent schools, shopping, parks, golf course, beaches , and major routes (I-95, US1), Rockledge is a great location fro getting around central Florida.
