Spring officially starts today. And while residents in parts of the Northeast were shoveling snow last week, the LifeStyle Homes team and our fellow Brevard County residents have been basking in picture-perfect weather.
On Thursday, March 9th, from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., LifeStyle Homes will be hosting a realtor luncheon at our Pineda Springs model home. All real estate professionals on the Space Coast are invited to attend.
If you haven’t already made plans, here are some simple and creative ideas to celebrate Valentine’s Day at home.
We have a great opportunity for anyone who needs a LifeStyle home in one of the best school districts in Brevard. Construction is in progress on a LifeStyle Santa Cruz II in Wesley Groves—West Melbourne’s premier new neighborhood.
No doubt, Joanne Nesbitt and Glenn Kreag love the outdoors. The couple takes pleasure in wildlife photography, kayaking, and traveling—even having journeyed as far as Antarctica!
Many of our Quick Move-In Homes are either available today, or are in the construction phase and will be ready for you to move in within a few short months.
On Saturday, June 20th from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., LifeStyle Homes will be hosting a backyard barbecue to celebrate the Grand Opening of our new Reserve at Lake Washington model home—and we would love for you to join us!
We have recently amassed a wonderful collection of listings near the gorgeous shores of Melbourne Beach. Each one of these listings allows for life in pure, unspoiled paradise near the ocean’s edge.
The Capri. It’s perhaps the most versatile home plan offering the best value for homebuyers in our entire collection. And here’s why…
LifeStyle Homes was honored to receive the Best Practice Award for its sustainability efforts by the statewide organization Sustainable Florida!
Our Quick Move-In Homes allow LifeStyle homebuyers the opportunity to live in a brand-new LifeStyle home – equipped with our LifeStyle SunSmart energy-saving package – without having to wait the normal new home build time.
This all-electric vehicle represents the most efficient, technologically advanced vehicle on the road today. If you’re wondering why LifeStyle invested in an electric vehicle, allow us to explain.
Home automation is a simple, yet sophisticated method to manage security, lighting, HVAC, and access control in your home. With centralized control of these various systems it is possible to automate many of the daily changes that previously had to be adjusted manually.
With all the great schools, attractions, and conveniences afforded by living in North Melbourne, growth in this area is continuing at a healthy pace. And the introduction of LifeStyle Homes’ Pineda Springs neighborhood presents another opportunity for residents to build their dream home here.
It’s no secret that the release of noxious CO2 emissions into our atmosphere is a problem that needs to change. Thankfully, the solutions are right in front of us.
Anyone familiar with LifeStyle Homes’ portfolio of home plans is most likely familiar with our St. Croix. The St. Croix is one of the most popular homes in our collection. That said, we thought it was the perfect home to kick off our new monthly Featured Home spotlight.
Construction has wrapped up on yet another gorgeous LifeStyle model home! Our latest showpiece home is located in Pineda Springs, a brand-new community in the heart of North Melbourne.
When we at LifeStyle Homes finish building a new home for our customers, we hope it will be a haven for its owners—a place where their family will make lasting memories. That said, we were overjoyed when we heard that Brent and Michelle Van Bever—former high-school sweethearts who reunited after 33 years—were married in their new LifeStyle home this past March!
Searching for the perfect property outside of a LifeStyle community? If so, we invite you to browse our to-be-built listings. You may find just what you’re looking for.
When it comes to the outlook of the housing market, good news seems to be hitting us from all directions. Take a look at some of the recent headlines we’re celebrating on the local, state, and national levels.
We at LifeStyle Homes are proud to roll out our LifeStyle SunSmart℠ cutaway tool. This new online tool gives you the opportunity to virtually see behind the walls of our homes, thus allowing us to demonstrate to you our better way of building.
