Welcome to
Circle, Ltd

Circle, Ltd

was, in effect, a completion of the Levitt and Sons communities of Olde Bay Trail and Woodlawn Manor.  When Levitt and Sons began developing in Upper Marlboro, homes were first constructed under the Olde Bay Trail name on White House Road, the eastern portion of Pickering Circle, and Windermere Court.  As construction of the community progressed, it was reintroduced as Woodlawn Manor and the homesites on and off Woodlawn Boulevard were developed.  Although the homesites for both communities back to one another, the street systems of the two are not connected.  The only connection between the two communities is a walkway linking Windermere Court and Woodlawn Boulevard.  When the Levitt houselines moved away from traditional and into contemporary, the remainder of Pickering Circle was developed with contemporary homes.  Pickering Circle, Ltd quite literally closed the loop and completed the street, rejoining to form a complete circle

As its name implies, Pickering Circle, Ltd was truly a limited opportunity:  only two models were offered in the community, and only 34 homesites were available.

The two models offered at Pickering Circle, Ltd were also being offered in other Levitt communities:

The Barron model is a contemporary version of the traditional Wicomico model at the Fairways at Crofton Green in Crofton and at Lake Village in Bowie.

The Galahad is Model 300-301 at Arcadia at Lake Village and Arcadia at Northampton off Woodlawn Boulevard and adjacent to Pickering Circle, Ltd.
