Wouldn’t it be great to escape busy city life in your own country retreat?
Tucked away in unincorporated Brevard County, these unique, large country homes are set back on substantial one-half to five acre lots. Horses are permitted on properties larger than one and one-half acres, and boarding stables and horse trails just outside Windover Farms abound. Imagine starting your day by heading out for a trail ride with your favorite horse.
Windover Farms is an active, friendly, close-knit community. The neighborhood has a large covered pavilion with a scenic lake and dock, soccer fields, a baseball diamond, tennis courts, and air-conditioned racquetball courts. The seemingly endless roadways are a pleasant place to jog, bike, walk the dog, or catch up on the latest news with the neighbors.
What community can boast that it has its own radio station? Tune in to WFHA (Windover Farms Homeowners Association) at FM 94.1—which reaches as far north as Suntree and as far south as Lake Washington—playing smooth jazz and oldies, local news and interviews, and popular shows like Planetary Radio and Medical Edge Radio News.

King Center for the Performing Arts—having hosted performers, such as Seinfeld, Gordon Lightfoot, the Brevard Symphony Orchestra, and the Melbourne Municipal Band.
