Chelsea Park in Rockledge, Florida–Large Homes, Excellent Prices!

I noticed a couple of new listings on the market this week in the Chelsea Park subdivision in Rockledge, Florida.   As this neighborhood is near my office I drive through often just to check out the new listings.

Most Chelsea Park homes were built between 1996 and 2004.  Also the homes in Chelsea Park are, for the most part, larger homes (greater than 2,100 sq. ft. under air) and on larger (non-zero lot line) parcels than the homes in some nearby developments like Ashwood Lakes, Ventana. Landing and the newer Phillips Landing subdivision.

Although Chelsea Park has a community park, it does not offer its residents a community pool which most of the other nearby communities offer.  It is a trade-off as it results in lower monthly association fees (about $280 per year). 

Not long ago it seemed as if short sales would dominate the Chelsea Park market but that is not the case any longer.  With five active listings today only one is a short sale.

All except one of the active listings has 4 bedrooms and over 2,500 sq.ft. under air.  List prices for the 4 bedroom homes range from $250,000 to $284,900.  The smallest home is a 1,609 sq.ft. 3/2/2 short sale listed for $169,900.

Since mid-April 2012 there have been three closings in Chelsea Park.   It seems selling prices have averaged just above $200,000.  The homes selling in Chelsea Park are not small homes by any means.
  1. 409 Stonehenge Circle – 2,820 sq.ft. 4 bedroom 3 bath 2 car garage on water sold for $207,000
  2. 312 Barrymore Dr – 3,142 sq.ft. 5 bedroom 3 bath 2 car garage sold for $208,500 [foreclosure]
  3. 410 Stonehenge Cir – 2,085 sq.ft. 4 bedroom 2 bath 3 car garage with pool sold for $195,500 [short sale]
If you are looking for a home to purchase in the Rockledge or Viera, Florida area, there are many available in lots of subdivisions.  There are 130 single family homes listed for sale this morning in Rockledge and Viera (not including the 81 in 55+ communities).

Chelsea Park homes for sale can compete with most and outshine many of the others.  Consider Chelsea Park!
