Considered the largest suburb of Philadelphia, Levittown is a family-friendly community with approximately 52,000 residents and a rich history.
Levittown’s story begins in the 1950s, when William Levitt & Sons sought to meet the needs of the thousands of post WWII families who wished to move out of Philadelphia and own a home with a yard. In fact, they built 17,311 homes and Levittown was the largest suburban planned community in the nation at the time!
Originally priced between $9,000-$17,000, homes came in 6 different styles, all focused on low-cost and efficient design (the “Levittowner” and the “Jubilee” were among the most popular models). The homes were notable for their open floor plans, picture windows, and modern kitchens.
Homes are located in the Pennsbury and Bristol Township schools, and range in price from $150,000-$300,000. As EveryHome buyer Theresa Lopez explains, “I love Levittown because the houses are reasonably priced so you can have a beautiful, larger home and still be able to give the family fun social activities. You don’t become ‘house poor’. The area is quiet for the most part and offers so many options like shopping, movies, dining, and more that the entire family can enjoy within a 10-mile radius.”
