Jacksonville's many historic neighborhoods bring a variety of interesting historical homes and landmarks. These neighborhoods feature a number of homes listed in the National Trust Of Historic Preservation.
Over the last few years, many individuals and investors have been buying old homes within those historic districts. A large number have been restored and are now being occupied by individuals, couples and families. Some located on busy streets were converted to professional offices housing attorneys, doctors, dentists, real estate offices and architects.
Southward along the river is Avondale, part of the same National Historic District as Riverside. Avondale features even more stately mansions than its neighbor, many of these built in the prosperous 1920's reflecting the Mediterranean Revival style as well as Tudor, Norman and other European styles. Avondale has maintained a unique village atmosphere and family environment through the years.
The focal point of the neighborhood is the shops of Avondale featuring trendy gourmet restaurants and an array of specialty shops and boutiques. The lifestyle of its residents is enhanced with the presence of over a dozen parks, which provide tennis, softball fields, and plenty of paths for jogging, walking and hiking.
Residents of Avondale also enjoy close proximity to downtown Jacksonville. You'll find apartment buildings, condominiums, small bungalows,and large, stately homes in the area.
Long considered home to "Old Jacksonville," Ortega is located on a peninsula between
the Ortega and St. Johns Rivers, bordered on the west by Roosevelt Boulevard. The
area is expericing an influx of young upper to middle-
Some larger estates have sold portions of real estate to make way for new homes; however, Ortega has been developed for many years. Families tend to stay in Ortega and as a result, fewer homes are sold on the open market than in newer areas.
In close proximity to downtown, this area on the Westside was part of the original city of Jacksonville and offers a picturesque setting of stately oaks and scenic river views. Situated between the St. Johns River and Roosevelt Boulevard, this area provides cultural diversity, historic architecture and an urban feel.
Riverside has become an attractive neighborhood to young professionals who want a short commute to downtown and are interested in renovating an old home. There are many homes to choose from, including modest bungalows, small duplexes, apartments and condominiums, elegantly restored homes and waterfront estates
