The focal point of Summer Lakes—a gated community, with custom estate homes starting at $700,000—are the two large, sparkling lakes with a pedestrian walkway and trestle bridge crossing. Most of these 94 large estate lots back to the water and offer pristine, unobstructed views of the lake. Wide pathways wind through the community along the lakeside.
Each of the homes in Summer Lakes is unique and beautifully landscaped. Rolling green lawns, colorful subtropical plants, and native grasses bedeck yards and walkways. Builders include Arthur Rutenberg Homes, Christopher Burton Luxury Homes, and Joyal Construction. Custom details include tiled roofs, custom swimming pools, custom molding, marble, stone, or wood floors, wrought iron and Venetian plaster—a smooth surface giving illusion of depth and texture.
The history of Summer Lakes is still carried on in the lifestyle of the community today. When I-95 and the Fiske Blvd. interchange were being constructed in the 60s and 70s, two lakes were formed, making the land surrounding it a recreational respite for The Viera Company’s Duda family. A campground with office and general store was erected and was later leased to a pastor who started a church camp: Camp Biblia. When the land lease expired in the 90s, the Duda family used the land as a retreat and the lakes for a fishery study. As Viera started rapidly growing, the Viera Company decided to deem the land an estate development with the desire to maintain the peace and serenity of the land in the new community of Summer Lakes.
Summer Lakes is directly accessible from Stadium Parkway and just down the road from the Space Coast Stadium—spring training home of the Washington Nationals and the minor league team, the Space Coast Manatees—and the Veteran’s Administration Clinic.
