Avondale

If you’re looking for historic homes with modern-day amenities and city flair, look no further than Avondale. It’s one of the city’s  oldest neighborhoods, and as its inhabitants and many others will be quick to tell you, the most charming neighborhood by far.

From Downtown Jacksonville, follow the St. Johns River west and get ready to escape to the good life. While Riverside/Avondale is the largest National Historic District in the U.S., it is in the midst of a re-birth like many parts of Jacksonville.  The tree canopy is well established and quiet streets call you to one of the city’s most pristine historic neighborhoods. Add the beauty of the St. Johns River and you may just think you have landed in paradise.

From quaint little bungalows to turn-of-the-century mansions to new riverfront condos, You will find everything from bungalows to mansions, but all with a common thread — and that is community itself.  This is a neighborhood that has affluent, well-educated people who take pride in their homes, their gardens and their community and young people just starting out in little two bedroom one bath bungalows and retirees who’ve decided to downsize to a community where they can walk everywhere! It’s really an eclectic mix, with singles and families, where people are employed in business as well as in the arts.  Streets are tree-lined with hundred year old oak trees, and people walk their dogs, greet each other or meet at one of the many restaurants in the small Avondale shopping area. It is a fine place to live.
