Charolais Estates in Viera Florida

Few locations offer everything on a buyer's checklist. If gated communities, spacious yards, award-winning schools and nearby shopping are your requirements, you have come to the right place. Charolais Estates in Viera, Florida, not only has the perfect climate, but has focused on Old World charm with new day trends. This is an excellent place to raise a family and live life to its fullest. Here, Barbara Zorn with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Star, will walk you through the many reasons why Charolais Estates is the perfect place to relocate.

The Location

Charolais Estates is located at the northern end of Viera, Florida. Viera is an unincorporated area that is adjacent to the Melbourne area. It is divided into two neighborhood communities, Viera East and Central Viera. Central Viera is further divided into the North and South Villages of Solerno. Viera lies within Brevard County and the Space Coast Region. It is situated off of I-95 and is 44 miles southeast of Orlando. Viera is a popular area for people working at Kennedy Space Center, Lockheed Space, Space-X, Blue Origin, Northrop Grumman and Harris. It is an easy commute to all of these job sites plus it is a quick drive to Melbourne Regional Airport and less than an hour to the Orlando International Airport.

Viera Ranks in Top 25 National Master-Planned Communities

Easy to access, over 100 miles of hiking trails and quality medical services are only a few of the high points in ranking Viera as one of the top U.S. master-planned communities. Other amenities noted by The John Burns Real Estate Consulting, LLC. and RCLCO Real Estate Advisors included retail shopping, a Viera Community Map Barbara Zorn's Copymovie theater, A-rated schools, the Brevard Zoo, USSSA’s Space Coast Stadium Complex, and multiple places of worship all within minutes of most homes. This was not Viera's first top billing as a master-planned community and their rating seems to increase each year.

County Government

Part of the detailed plan for the Viera master-planned community included convenience and transparency to government regulations and functions. With the properties lying in the middle of Brevard County, opening a second set of county government facilities seemed ideal. Almost every public function that is available at the main courthouse can also be found at the Brevard County Government Operations Center.

Single Family Neighborhoods

Single family neighborhoods were started in 2014. After proving the value of the area as a master-planned community, it was time to offer the many benefits to families everywhere. Charolais Estates is the latest gated development where family, education, health and fun is the focus. Mature trees line the cul-de-sacs that back up to lakes and preserves for a feeling of natural solitude. Oversized lots allow for outdoor kitchens and fun in the yard. All homes are within walking distance to playgrounds, pools and tennis courts.

Builders of Charolais Estate Homes

Only the most professional builders of custom homes are invited to show off their skills in this elite part of Viera. For instance, Arthur Rutenberg Homes is known for legendary designs and award-winning craftsmanship throughout the building industry. The theme for Charolais Estate Homes is Mediterranean, Coastal and Contemporary. Armstrong Custom Homes is another frequently seen builder that has over 30 years of Award-Winning homes in Brevard County. They are lain out prominently to provide large family spaces that reflect open and active lifestyles. Bright and inviting, the flavor flows with tropical goodness and the refinement of upscale homes. Each exterior has a customized attribute whether it be elegant columns, custom stone or one-of-a-kind architectural detailing.

Interior Space

The interior of each Charolais Estate Home is a wonderment of open space and customized design. Handsome fireplaces, ornate archways and exquisite woodwork are a few of the individual qualities that define these homes as unsurpassed in detailed attention. Homes are available from 3-6 bedrooms and 2-6 bathrooms. Many homes host pools, Jacuzzi, gourmet kitchens and pocket sliding doors. Do not be surprised to find a 3-car garage for extra space. Each home has its own form of character and distinction that provides for individual wants and needs. Contact Barbara Zorn of Better Homes and Gardens for an exclusive tour today.


Where does one begin? The number of amenities in this master-planned community of Charolais Estates seems to have no end. It would be difficult to find the same quality and quantity of activities, educational facilities and shopping that this community has to offer. The closest option for relaxation and fun lies across the street from Charolais Estates and is called North Solerno Park.

North Solerno Park

20 acres filled with 2 double tennis courts, 2 full basketball courts and 2 large pavilions is what you will find when you enter North Solerno Park. But that's just the beginning. A fenced in playground with a gyro climbing web, swings, play sets and rock climbing walls will keep the kids busy for hours while you relax in the pool next door.

Educational Facilities

In 1989, the Brevard County Educational Services Facility got underway for education to move into Viera. Manatee Elementary School was opened in 2003 and has a 'A' school rating. They have adopted a Green School initiative with recycling. Throughout the school year a focus is made to support charitable causes, such as the Ronald McDonald House and local food banks. Another elementary school opens shortly after. In 2006, Viera High School opens. There are 16 colleges within a 50 mile radius of Viera, making in-state selections a breeze. Eastern Florida State College has been rated one of the best colleges in the nation and costs half of a state college.

The History

The Duda family first immigrated to Central Florida from Slovakia in 1909. Andrew Duda and his three sons formed the town of Slavia and spent years trying to make a go in a foreign land. Finally, in 1926, their first cash crop of celery was harvested and they created A. Duda & Sons. Their mission was clear, to create a better life for their families while protecting the environment. The early Duda family invested in property, build up the ground to create produce, and preserved land as a natural habitat.

In the 1940s, the 3 sons made a large purchase of 43,000 acres in Brevard County. This parcel of ground became the heritage of the family's hard work, integrity in business and solid belief in God. In 1989, third, fourth and fifth generations of Duda's devised a plan to build a master-planned community where family, education, religion, work and pleasure could be experienced. Named Viera, Slovak for "faith", the wheels began to turn.

Today, the prosperity of the Duda family continues to expand its values in Viera. Not only have they created a community where its reputation for quality, integrity and innovation has become widely recognized, but the focus on market trends and customer service shines through.

Family Philanthropy and Land Donations

Duda's stated purpose is to multiply and share God's blessings. This is accomplished through the philanthropy of land donations and working closely with government officials and like-minded companies. A board of directors consisting of family members and non-family members with business backgrounds have carefully considered the construction of every building that is part of Viera. From the Championship 18-hole Duran Golf Club to Manatee Elementary School, you will see this family's signature on each past, present and future projects.

Places of Worship

Viera made sure that religion was not left out of the traditional family role in Charolais Estates. Close by you will find Faith Lutheran, The Church at Viera, Freedom Christian, St. John the Evangelist Catholic Community and Temple Israel for family and community worship.
