This is an end unit which is highly coveted because you’ve got lots of extra windows and light and the floorplan is especially nice with the master suite on the river PLUS another 3BR/2.5 BA on the other side. Professionally decorated, this condo has tall ceilings, beautiful woodwork including custom built cabinetry in the Master Bedroom, Living Room and Office. The kitchen is stunning with an open plan, granite counter-tops, professional grade appliances including a gas cook-top, a center island and wine cooler. Nothing has been left out.

Villa Riva is among one of  Jacksonville’s premiere addresses.Located in the Riverside neighborhood on the West Side of town near Ortega and Avondale, Villa Riva was built in 2005 and many of the units were snapped up at pre-construction prices the day they were released to the market.

The building is divided into three towers, each with their own bank of elevators and each floor has only two residences so there’s a real sense of privacy. The building has every imaginable amenity including an incredible River front swimming pool, state of the art fitness center, guest suite, business center and other luxury common areas like the River Room where residents can meet on Thursday evenings to get to know each other.

Glazed Donuts November 22nd, 2006Now that you’ve bought your fantastic house in Avondale, where in the world will you get your morning java? You could go to Starbucks (been there done that) or  try  find a few local spots where you can get down home service AND really good coffee! In Jacksonville, one such place near the neighborhood of Avondale, is Edgewood Bakery. It’s located at 1012 S. Edgewood Avenue in Jacksonville, FL just on the other side of Roosevelt Blvd.  While waiting for your super delicious homemade glazed doughnuts and piping hot coffee you might bump into a few neighbors and have a chance to catch up with what’s going on in the neighborhood.
