I was reviewing my recent listing in Levitt Park subdivision when I came a cross the website LevittownBeyond.com which actually told the story of "The Levittowns" developments by Levitt and Sons. I had heard of Levittown, PA before but was not familiar with Levitt and Sons and their huge development of communities across the USA.  And the Levitt communities appeared everywhere including Arizona, California, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Nevada, Georgia...practically all over!In Rockledge, Florida. we have Levitt Park at Rockledge or officially, Buckingham at Levitt Park which, according to LB.com, opened for sales in 1964.  This was Levitt and Sons' first Florida project and was attracted by the expansion plans at Kennedy Space Center in the early 1960s.  One of the early mark...

There is an unusual practice in Florida that does not exist in other areas of the country. Small, really good eateries are housed in gas stations. Such is the case with Sergios Tacos Mexican Grill. Tucked away in a Mobil gas station at 5470 Murrell Road in Rockledge on the northwest corner of Murrell Road and Viera Blvd is Sergios Tacos Mexican Grill. Being from Colorado, I used to spend a month every year in Mexico. When in Mexico, my favorite food was the delicious street food I found in carts. Much of the time that was tacos. So I can comfortably say that I know Mexican food. If you are looking for a good Mexican Taco, I recommend stopping by Sergios Tacos Mexican Grill. Tuesday's are Taco Tuesday's which are buy 2 get the third free. Today I had 1 carne asado, 1 el pastor and 1 chil...

Ashwood Lakes and Ventana subdivisions in Rockledge, Florida are located next to each other and consist of homes built about the same time (around early 2000s).  Both developments are very similar although Ventana homes are a little larger. Both subdivisions share community amenities like the community pool, playground,  tennis courts, and basketball courts which makes a single market report covering them logical. Both developments are ideally situated near major routes (I-95 and US 1),  shopping venues like The Avenues Viera, golf courses and superb schools. Bordering the planned unit development of Viera, it is just a short drive to Viera's  medical facilities, restaurants, professional baseball and more.   Its a short drive to beaches (about 10 miles),  about 15-20 minutes to Patric...
