St. Johns County homes have lots to offer residents. Many people choose St. Johns County real estate because of the short commute into Jacksonville. The schools in the county are also very strong, which attracts families. While many of the communities are considered suburbs of Jacksonville, there are lots of local amenities and things to do. Tourism supports the local business community. We have several favorite communities in the county we’d like to highlight.
Nocatee real estate is a wonderful choice for those who want to be close to the beach. The master-planned community is located near Ponte Vedra and is a First Coast community. Amenities include numerous parks, trails, a kayak launch, and a swim club. There is space set aside for building five elementary schools and a middle school within the community so that kids can walk or bike to school. The Town Center provides great shopping, from Publix to healthcare to fitness centers to eateries.
Find another, larger, master-planned community when you look at Julington Creek Plantation real estate. For those who love to be outdoors, Julington Creek has lots to offer. Residents enjoy many miles of walking and biking paths, 100 lakes, and 1200 acres of nature preserve. Go boating down the Intracoastal Waterway or play a round of golf. The rec center has tennis courts, swimming pools for both lap swimming and water play, fitness classes, and a restaurant.
If golf is your hobby, then World Golf Village real estate is for you. It was founded by the PGA Tour and is the location for World Golf Hall of Fame. There are two golf courses: the King & Bear, designed by Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer and the Slammer & Squire, designed by Sam Snead and Gene Sarazen. Golf Digest gives both courses 4.5 stars out of five.
Find the center of the action in St. Augustine real estate, the county seat of St. Johns County. The city boasts a history that stretches back four centuries and celebrated the 450th anniversary of its founding in 2015 with a festival and a visit from Felipe VI of Spain and Queen Letizia of Spain. The beaches in the city are simply stunning, and there are lots of choices when it comes to shopping and dining.
One of St. Augustine’s most exclusive neighborhood is Palencia real estate. The master-planned community includes walking paths that connect the neighborhoods that make up the development and leads to the Tolomato Rivera and the wildlife living in the marshes. Other amenities include an 18-hole championship golf course, swimming pools, tennis courts, a fitness center, and easy access to shopping in St. Augustine’s historic downtown.
