Buckingham is located West of Buckingham Road to roughly Neal and Slater roads, south to Gunnery Road, east to Harns Marsh and the headwaters of the Orange River at Lehigh Acres. A sprawling east Lee County neighborhood, Buckingham is evolving from a cattle-and-citrus neighborhood to low-key suburbia in a contemporary country setting. Realtors call it the last frontier for big developers. Among the pioneers: The Bonita Bay Group. The companys Verandah is credited with much of the recent interest. Farmers once floated citrus along the 12-mile Orange River to now-vanished packinghouses at its mouth on the Caloosahatchee. Not far east near State Road 80, the 70-acre Highland Ranches are set for development, along with roughly 1,600 units at Hawks Haven, an unspecified number of homes at the 600-acre Hunters Ranch, and a 640-unit subdivision known by county officials as the Buckingham 320. Along such corridors as Neal Road, Buckingham Road, or Orange River Road, homes come with at least one acre, the maximum density allowed in the Buckingham Rural Community Preserve Area, a county-designated plan that limits home and commercial development to protect the areas rural character. At the Buckingham Air Park near Lee County Mosquito Control headquarters in the southeast corner of Buckingham, homes with garage airplane hangars and access to the four-foot-thick runways of the former Buckingham Army Air Field where most residents own planes.
