If you are doing your research for an upcoming move to the Space Coast and Canaveral Groves keeps coming up on the radar, this post is all about this section of Cocoa Florida.
Canaveral Groves is not a city or town, but a section of unincorporated Brevard County that is part of the 32926 zip code with a tiny section in the 32927, and Canaveral Groves is Cocoa Florida.
I would describe this area as rural. Not really farm living, even though you will see horses, goats, and chickens. Living in Canaveral Groves is definitely country living. What I mean by this is most of the lots are an acre or more. There is a lot of space between the homes. Most of the roads are paved, but there are sections of Canaveral Groves that are gravel roads. Most of the homes are on septic. Surprisingly, most of the homes are on city water. Not surprisingly, most of the homes are not in an HOA.
There are 2 HOA communities in the Canaveral Groves area is also the section of Canaveral Groves. Summer Breeze Plantation and Veronica Estates.
So, if you are looking for space, Canaveral Groves could be an ideal location for you to consider.
Since this area is part of Cocoa Florida, not a definitive city or town, they share the zip codes 32926 & 32927 with other parts of Cocoa, and “Canaveral Groves” is not part of every legal description, getting some good stats on the type of homes in the area were hard to come by. I could not do a search through public records for housing info and I am relying on sales in our MLS.
In 2022, there were 63 sales in Canaveral Groves. They ranged in size from 900 SqFt to over 4000 SqFt. They were built between 1979 and new construction. The median year built was 1993. Most of the lots were 1 acre. 12 of the sales were over 2 acres. 2 were under ½ acre. Sales prices are between $155K to $769K with the median price at $465K
If you are looking for raw land, Canaveral Groves has options. You can buy in an area where there are existing homes and utilities are available to build a home. You can buy land that is currently unbuildable and some that are landlocked with no road access (future growth) If you see lots online for sale for $5K an acre, more than likely they are landlocked with no road access and no utilities.

As I mentioned, the Canaveral Groves area is rural. There is a gas station/convenience store on the Grissom/Canaveral Groves intersection. Otherwise, you will be driving for almost everything else. Publix and WalMart are south of 528 near Clearlake Road. There is a Publix and Winn Dixie on US1 north of Canaveral Groves Blvd. You can venture further north to Titusville for another Walmart, Target, Lowes, & Home Depot.
Canaveral Groves is a great location if you are working at the Space Center or anywhere in Titusville. It’s a pretty easy drive to the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station or Port Canaveral. If your job is in Melbourne or further south…you will have a drive.
As you are doing your research for your new home in Brevard County and you are looking for a larger lot, Canaveral Groves is certainly an area I recommend looking into. You get the acre plus lots, with plenty of space between you & your neighbor, without the restrictions you could see in either an HOA community or living inside the city limits.
