Welcome to
Ivy Meadows
is one of the many residential neighborhoods in the planned community of Winslow Crossing established by Levitt and Sons, Inc. in 1971.  By this time, the company had been sold to Starrett Housing Corp. and was operating as Levitt Homes, developing properties that had been purchased by Levitt and Sons, but transferred with the sale of the company to ITT and later Starrett. The overall community name of Winslow Crossing was also dropped in favor of promoting the specific subdivision names. It was the last of the Levitt-built homes in the community and is believed to be the last Levitt project in New Jersey.  Ivy Meadows was developed by Levitt Homes, Inc., though the entire subdivision was not completed by Levitt: several lots were purchased and developed by Kaufman and Broad as New American Homes at Winslow Crossing in 1976.

Philadelphia Inquirer
Ad 1 Advertising both Ivy Meadows and Arbor Meadows:  although the ad states that five models were available, only two of the models were available at Ivy Meadows.  Garages were optional at Ivy Meadows where they were included in the sale price at Arbor Meadows.   In addition, the finished half-story of the Cape Cod model was included at Arbor Meadows where this feature was optional at Ivy Meadows.  The rendering shown in the ad for the Cape Cod is incorrect: the garage is shown adjacent to the bedroom wing where it should be at the opposite side of the house adjacent to the Living Room.  This error was common in Levitt Homes ads for awhile, even for communities in other states, like Northview Estates and Northampton Estates in Maryland.  The brochure for Whale Rock even had the incorrect rendering.  Note the fact that the ad does not even reference the larger community of Winslow Crossing, though there is a subtitle "in Winslow Township" following the Levitt Homes logo. (9/19/1976)

Ivy Meadows was the final section of all the Levitt sections at Winslow Crossing.  Of the 61 homesites at Ivy Meadows, Levitt Homes developed only 21 of them before closing out its Sicklerville operation.  The remaining homesites were sold to Kaufman and Broad, who developed those lots as New American Homes at Winslow Crossing.  New American Homes had debuted opposite Ivy Meadows in the Juniper Hill section in July 1976, selling all 53 homes in that community in less than one month.  K&B later acquired the remaining 40 homesites in Ivy Meadows and reopened its models on September 19, 1976.  Two models were offered: the Ashton (rancher) and the Windslow (split-level).  Garages were optional.
