Brooksville Real Estate Information

Home Buyers never pay a fee for our services!

Brooksville, FL MLS SearchLocated in the heart of Florida’s Nature Coast, Brooksville is a unique area filled with beautiful wildlife, undisturbed wetlands and pristine beaches. Originally known as “Melendez,” and settled in 1845, the Brooksville we know today was formed in 1856 as a merger of Melendez and Brooksville. This change became accepted officially in 1871, when street signs and the Post Office were re-named to read “Brooksville.”

Spacer Local City Information

Brooksville was originally settled by four pioneer families; the Howell’s to the North, the Jon L. Mays family to the East, the Halls on the West end and the Parsons family to the South. This large collection of founding families is celebrated every summer with a community-wide week-long festival, the Founders Week Celebration. In addition to the Founders Celebration, homeowners and vacationers alike can join in on other community sponsored events including the Christmas Parade, the Holiday Festival and the Historical Festival during June. All of these gatherings are the perfect opportunity for community involvement, and have become favorites among homeowners!

Brooksville is also the home to the historic Fort Desoto, an ancient structure that was originally constructed on a mound of lime rock and was intended to serve as the central port for the city. Unfortunately, because of the lime rock’s density and elevated location, reaching water was nearly impossible and the fort was eventually abandoned. The remains of the fort and the park surrounding it have become a staple in the Brooksville attractions, offering both history experts and beach goers the perfect place to spend a lazy summer afternoon!  In addition to the Fort, the history of the town comes to life in the Historic Homes that are still standing today. These amazing homes feature the May Stringer House, the Williams Sherman Jennings House and the Willis Russell House, all of which appear on a historical tour of the town.

Because of Brooksville’s central location in Florida’s Nature Coast just 45 miles from Tampa, homeowners and vacationers here have immediate access to the local highways and interstates, including US 41, US 98 and SR 50, making the commute to Tampa, Brandon, MacDill, Lakeland or Orlando a breeze! Brooksville’s location is also beneficial to commuter students, with local campuses of Pasco-Hernando Community College, the University of South Florida, the University of Florida, St. Petersburg College, Hillsborough Community College and many other adult education and technical centers. Brooksville residents also enjoy an easy commute to the Orlando Metro Area and all the Attractions, Theme parks, shopping and dining.

Since the town’s development in the 1800s, it has continuously been described as a full service city. Through recent developments and expansions, Brooksville is growing more each year. Because of this population explosion, builders are developing new communities every year featuring breathtaking contemporary Single Family Homes, Condos, Town Homes, Vacation Rentals Villas, Retirement Communities and even custom-built Luxury Homes and Town Homes.
