If you are a golfer where better to live than directly on the golf course in beautiful central Florida? You will find yourself near the beaches, Orlando, cruise ships at Cape Canaveral, and golf...out your back door or at one of the 30 plus golf courses in Brevard County!
When shopping for a golf course home in Florida you have to differentiate between golf course direct or golf course view or golf course community. Many homes are located withing the community but most are not directly on the fairway.
Of course the prices will be reflective of the actual location.
Additionally some are within gated communities, some within security gate guarded communities, 55+ communities and any combination of these!
As of today there are 75 homes for sale in Viera, Suntree and Rockledge that are being marketed as golf course direct homes. This does not include any condominiums.
The prices range from $195,000 to about $1,500,000 for these golf course direct homes. Thirteen golf course direct homes are located with the gated, prestigious Baytree Golf Course community located in Suntree. Prices in Baytree start at $199,000 (Isle of Baytree) to the huge homes in the Balmoral section at about a million and a half!
