This is a hip part of town with a young population. Million dollar waterfront homes and upscale apartment buildings are the norm, but there is nothing pretentious about the area, instead the vibe here is that of community, urban living, and keeping it local. The world-class Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens is also located in the Riverside neighborhood, and the gardens overlook the St. Johns River.
     Riverside's Five Points area is a bohemian neighborhood with funky coffee shops, outdoor cafés, one-of-a-kind shopping, nightclubs, antique stores, and more. In the last few years, a new food & beer district has emerged on King Street, locally owned restaurants, bars and breweries are calling the street home and bringing in hundreds of visitors of all ages every weekend. Some of the options include Intuition Ale Works Brewery, Bold City Brewery, The Garage, Soup’s On, Pele’s Wood Fire, Lola’s, and Kickbacks.

San Marco

     Every type and size of home is represented in San Marco. There are single family homes in San Marco detached homes ranging from small bungalows, to massive opulent estates, and everything in between. Styles range from Mediterranean Revival, Tudor, Georgian and Colonial styles, all situated on quiet, tree-lined streets, with easy access to the small walkable village that is San Marco Square.
     Even if you're more if a city person, San Marco has hundreds of newer townhomes, low rise and high rise condos and lofts just across the bridge from downtown. These new additions to the San Marco landscape are attracting an influx of young professionals who like the simplicity and luxury of high-rise living.
     Home sizes in San Marco range from 1,200 to 6,000 square feet, and you'll find every price point represented, from the $80K range all the way up to the multi million dollar estates on the St. Johns Riv


     Located adjacent to Downtown Jacksonville is the historic Springfield neighborhood. An up-and-coming residential area filled with restored old homes and local charm. Majestic oaks provide protective shade along Springfield’s residential streets; this neighborhood gives visitors a window into Jacksonville’s past and the city’s effort to preserve its history.
     The original Springfield development dates to 1869; at one point it was the city’s wealthiest neighborhood. Currently it is in the middle of a rebirth, in 2011, Southern Living named Springfield one of "The South's Best Comeback Neighborhoods."  Walk Fido down the tree-lined streets and then let your furry-friend play freely at the Confederate Dog Park.
