Life in the Park


Upon entering through the wrought iron gate, residents can expect to be welcomed by an intimate park setting. Gas lanterns with hanging baskets hug the generously scaled sidewalks. Lush landscaping will create a vivid panorama of color surrounding two stately parks. Yet, the homes are the residential coup de gras — designed in a classic architectural style. Instantly, you will know this is an extraordinary place unlike any other. It is the ultimate in artful living.

It is Livingston Park.

Livingston Park Lifestyle

As a resident of Livingston Park, evenings can be a quiet dinner in your private courtyard or a wine tasting at the pavilion. Designed as a close-knit community, Livingston Park is for families desiring both private and social conveniences with one another. Equally appealing is that this development also provides residential services including all grounds maintenance needs. Residents can enjoy an estate home without the maintenance of an estate property.

“Residents are looking forward to relaxing in the late afternoon at the pavilion which will be located in the south park,” says Sherry Smith, Marketing and Sales Director for Scudder and Company. The pavilion will include a beautiful outdoor fireplace.”

The master landscape design, created by landscape Architect John Adams, invites an afternoon stroll among dogwoods, oaks, and colorful annuals. All 39 lots face one of the parks, making this community an exceptional lifestyle choice.

Livingston Park Homes

Exquisite in design, each home gives a gracious architectural nod to the classic traditional structures with both American and European flair. Every home showcases a spacious interior courtyard hidden from outside view. However, these homes are much more than courtyard homes, definitely not patio homes.

Livingston Park consists of stately single-family homes with personal elevators and amenities that will please the most discriminating buyer. Architectural plans currently offered can be modified to meet each resident’s desires. These range from 2,500 to 5,000 square feet with prices from the $700’s. Each home will feature its own design that will incorporate various materials such as iron balconies, weeping mortar, and various faux finishes to ensure complementary designs, while at the same time, keeping each home unique.

Livingston Park Heritage

When it comes to on-site management, what better choice than the developer and builder himself? In this case, it’s Todd Scudder.

“For a long time now it’s been my desire to be back in the middle of the construction process in the field,” says Todd, “Livingston Park is a dream come true for me. I’m excited that I will be on site playing an integral part of meeting with owners and craftsmen of all trades.”

Each home has its own schedule that is maintained to ensure the owners of a timely completion. And this is exactly what you would expect from someone who has been in the construction industry for almost three decades. Even Todd’s on-site construction office and conference room complements the image of difference people expect in Livingston Park.

Holland Drake, vice president of Scudder and Company, is excited to be part of this extraordinary development.

“Livingston Park incorporates many great land planning ideas that I’ve seen in other cities,” says Holland, “It’s great to be part of a project that brings some new urban planning concepts to Ocala.”

Scudder and Company incorporates a project management team approach, assuring owners that even the smallest details will be carried out by company representatives — someone will always be available to assist them. The team’s number one goal is the satisfaction of the homeowner.

Scudder’s appreciation of legacy is evident in Livingston Park, named after his late great-grandfather, Henry Livingston, who was a respected business and civic leader in Marion County. Scudder’s focus is on the entire living experience including the look and feel of the community, not just the homes.

“We’re destined to leave our mark for the enjoyment of generations to come,” says Todd.

Thoughtful in design with the residents’ ultimate needs in mind make Livingston Park a unique place for graceful living. Isn’t it time for you to come home to the Park?
