In the Viera area of central Brevard County Florida (Melbourne) , there are several 55+ communities from which to choose. On the west side of I-95 is Heritage Isle with its continuing new development and impressive facilities.
On the eastern side of the interstate is the sometimes forgotten about "other" 55+ community - Grand Isle.
Both of these communities were developed by Lennar Builders although Grand Isle was developed first. Both offer club house, fitness centers, a gated lifestyle, and affordable living.
So, why would one choose Grand Isle over Heritage Isle when looking for a 55+ gated community in Florida?
If one is looking a brand new home then Heritage Isle would be the choice. [Contact me for information on new construction in Heritage Isle.]
If one is looking for a community of single family homes only then Grand Isle is the choice. If one wants condo living or even a patio style home then Heritage Isle is the choice.
If one is looking for a community from which they can drive their golf cart to the course....well they both offer this option!
If one is looking for...actually there is no real winner here.
If you are interested in a 55+ community in Florida, Grand Isle (and Heritage Isle) both deserve your consideration. Let me show you what Viera offers those seeking gated 55+ living! Also, ask me about the Indian River Colony Club - a different style of 55+ community.
