Comprised of a few more than 200 homesites, the Summer Brook neighborhood of North Melbourne is a wonderful place to live for people of all ages. Homes here are surrounded by nature. Many are situated along lakes or wooded preserves that offer great privacy. Because the neighborhood itself is recessed from Wickham Road, Summer Brook is very quiet and removed from the hustle and bustle of all that is going on in Melbourne. This quality makes Summer Brook a desirable community.
Homes ranging in size from 1,800 Sqft to over 3,000 SqFt are available for purchase. Prices begin in the mid $200,000's and range to approximately $400,000. Common elements found in each home include: Soaring cathedral ceilings, open living areas, extra large bedrooms, well-appointed kitchens, 2 and 3 car garages, large swimming pools and landscaped lanais. Since breaking ground in the early 1990's, many Summer Brook owners have done extensive upgrades to their homes. This has certainly increased the appeal of the neighborhood. The community has two phases which are completely full with no vacant lots remaining. The well-landscaped common areas of the neighborhood are maintained by the Summer Brook Homeowners Association. Belonging to the association is mandatory, and the fee is $275 per year. This is quite reasonable in comparison to similar neighborhoods in the Melbourne area.
Located less than a mile south of the Pineda Causeway, residents of Summer Brook enjoy quick access to the beaches and everything else that Brevard County has to offer. Since Summer Brook was first planned, the area around it has grown up and is thriving with businesses and other developments. There are plenty of great schools in the area, both public and private, so raising a family here offers options in terms of education and extracurricular activities. The neighborhood itself is perfect for the commuter, as it is only a 5 minute drive from the nearest I-95 exit and only 50 minutes from Downtown Orlando.
