Levitt & Sons completed approximately 50 homes by 2007 before filing for bankruptcy. Since then, builders in Cascades at Southern Hills include Lennar Homes and Oak Crest Homes. Homebuyers can choose from homes available on a resale basis.

Casual dining is provided daily at The Grill, but residents also have use of three special event dining areas. These include a covered outdoor sitting area.

New Resident Cascades- 2015 (Resident/Homeowner)

We discovered after closing on our home in Cascades that the membership to join Southern Hills Plantation and enjoy all the amenities mentioned in this advertisement, was prohibitive for the average family. Cascades does not have a clubhouse, pool or any organized activities of their own. In order to use Southern Hills Plantation facilities you need to pay an initiation fee, and a monthly fee to participate in a social membership. This advertisement for the Cascades, an over 55 community, is misleading for any prospective buyers.

Charles & Beverly (Resident/Homeowner)

Our home overlooks the golf course and we really enjoy the outdoor living spaces. The clubhouse is within walking distance and is really beautiful. Lots of good old Southern Florida charm here!
