Lake Washington


Lake Washington is a beautifully laid out, planned community, approximately 10 miles west of Melbourne in Brevard County, and shares its name with the massive and incredibly stunning, natural lake it borders. Lake Washington is Brevard County's largest lake and is the 41st largest lake in the State of Florida. The actual lake itself spans almost 4,500 acres, and is is vital to the area as the main source of fresh water for the city of Melbourne and the surrounding communities.

There are over 1,400 homes in the Lake Washington area, with prices in the $200,000 to $2,100,000 range. What sets many of these homes apart is the size of some of the homesites, many of which are three to ten acres in size. One of the unique aspects of the Lake Washington community itself, is that it is still a very rural area, and homeowners on these larger homesites can actually keep horses on their property if there is enough land to accommodate them.

The actual community of Lake Washington itself, is very quaint, with a small town center that is lined with several blocks of small shops, cafes, antique stores and historical buildings, all of which give it a very comfortable, unique charm. When you need to get to wonderful downtown Melbourne, it is less than 10 miles away, with all the shops, restaurants, cafes, excitement and beachfront activities that make it one of the best places in Florida to live.

Lake Washington is located just north of the thriving community of Viera, which offers you another wide variety of culture, outdoor activities, organized events, as well as plenty of shopping and dinning options for you to choose from. Culture is abundant in and around Viera, with large and small art galleries and museums, as well as several arenas that regularly host theatre and ballet productions. There is also a regular schedule of community events in Viera for you and your family to enjoy. The centerpiece of Viera is The Avenue Viera, a beautifully designed, open-air shopping mall, featuring over 100 stores and restaurants. There are major retailers and chain restaurants at The Avenue, along with boutiques and outdoor cafe's as well as a 16-screen, multiplex movie theater.

The entire area surrounding Lake Washington, including the town, is incredibly thick and lush with beautiful, native Florida tropical trees and foliage, dotted with gorgeous smaller lakes and abundant with every species of natural wildlife you can imagine. To the west of town, directly on the lake, is Lake Washington Park, a picture perfect place to spend the day or watch an incredible Florida sunset over the lake. Lake Washington Park features boat ramps, a playground, pavilions for picnics and family gatherings throughout, a small pier with a covered pavilion at the end for sitting or fishing, and of course plenty of benches to watch those amazing sunsets! There are also a number of wildlife parks nearby, with Sebastian Inlet State Recreation State Park and its 3 miles of beach, just a few minutes away.

The area is obviously a fisherman's paradise, with both fresh-water and salt-water fishing all around you, just waiting for you to bait a line and reel them in. For golfers, there's Baytree National Golf Links nearby for you to enjoy whenever you want to tee off and plenty of other golf courses within a quick drive.
