Ron and Mary Jane Thompson are retired and have a home in La Cita in Titusville, FL. just across the Indian River from Cape Kennedy.
We have owned a vacation home in this community since the early 80's. We love Walker-in-the-Hills so much that we purchased additional property in the 90's and had our permanent home built there in 2002. We purchased this wonderful chalet in 2004 from our neighbors, Harry and Ruth Bliwernitz, in 2004.
The view! It's a beautiful view looking to the east toward Waynesville. The home is just far enough away from the city that you see the church spires in the day and the magical beauty of twinkling city lights at night. There's a lovely pond next door where we encourage you to feed the fish - no fishing please. The community is made up of everything from small cottages to large, beautiful mountain homes. It's quiet and peaceful with a special ambiance and character of its own. It's situated on the eastern slope of one of the highest and most beautiful mountains in the Appalachians, Mt. Lyn Lowry.
