By next spring, northern St. Johns County residents will enjoy the benefits of close-by amenities just like our Jacksonville neighbors. With the development of the Pavilion at Durbin Park, World Golf Village and other northern SJC residents will have easy access to popular shops, restaurants and entertainment.

 

Tucked between Race Track Road and the new 9B connector, the town center is comprised of multiple phases and will cover 1,600 acres. Many of the Phase 1 businesses are expected to open by spring 2019. In fact, the new Walmart is already open.

Thanks to 9B’s completion and the new CR 2209 roadway construction through Silverleaf (connecting CR 210 to SR 16), getting to Durbin Park will soon be easier for World Golf Village residents.

Once completed, Durbin Park will feature the largest shopping center in Northeast Florida. In addition to stores and restaurants, development is planned for hotels, office space and multifamily residential units. Durbin Park will also boast greenspace and bike trails.

Here is a full list of the businesses coming to Durbin Park:

Asian Fusion

AT&T Wireless

Baptist Health

Bass Pro Shop (phase 2)
Burlington
Care Spot
Chase Bank
Cinemark Durbin Park (12-screen movie theater)

Davidson Realty agent Mirtha Barzaga recently held back-to-school drives at the King & Bear Amenity Center and Heritage Landing Amenity Center in World Golf Village. Mirtha collected school supplies to benefit kids in need at several St. Johns County Schools.

The turnout was fantastic at both events, helping lots of students to start the school year off right! Generous donors delivered essential supplies like backpacks, notebooks, folders, markers, crayons, scissors and more.

“Many local students don’t have the basic things they need for school, which makes academic success all the more difficult for them,” said Mirtha. “These supplies help give students the confidence they need to learn, knowing they have the necessary tools.”

Despite the introduction of new communities all over the First Coast, World Golf Village remains one of the area’s best places to find low-maintenance, high-quality living options. With the addition of The Cottages, those options continue to expand.

Situated just off Royal Pines Parkway within walking distance of World Golf Village’s hub, The Cottages offers an optimal location for buyers seeking a serene atmosphere while remaining close to amenities.

The community’s featured builder DreamFinders plans to build 56 homes, most of which back up to wooded preserves or the community’s pristine lake. Buyers may select between seven floor plans that vary from 1,600 to 2,700 sq. ft.

The World Golf Hall of Fame celebrates the history, heritage and traditions of golf. The World Golf Village (WGV) community-at-large celebrates its ever-evolving special place through continued good-growth in a Live Oak punctuated landscape that is well on its way to making its own history and establishing its own legacy.
The original neighborhoods of Turnberry, Royal Pines, St. Andrews, The Legends, Meadows and Heritage Landing are all complete – with over 2,200 homes. The King and Bear neighborhoods are 92% occupied, with 892 of their 968 homes complete. The first WGV age-restricted neighborhood is thoroughly-well established with 450 single-family homes in The Cascades.
Recently, there has been a resurgence of home-building that is filling out and completing many of the associated WGV neighborhoods. Greenside at WGV is rapidly building 36 single family homes overlooking the Slammer & Squire #6 fairway. Legacy Trail is also nearing completion with 30 exclusive single family homes – most overlooking the #16 & #17 fairways of the Slammer & Squire.

The most successful, competitive and accomplished athletes train with their minds. They can close their eyes and literally picture – and see – how to execute a routine, make a move, lead and score. They are able to imagine themselves in the winner’s circle.

After 20 years of home ownership and raising a family, I recently put my home on the market – thinking surely someone would come along and “see” and “sense” what we experienced over those years.

Communities with Character

Posted by: Rick Pariani in Neighborhoods
 

As a new home buyer, you know all about the concept of creating and maintaining a “sense of place”, once you settle on your house choice. You look for places that have character and homes that have charm. Although you need to check off all of those pragmatic boxes, you also yearn for more, in both the neighborhood and the house and yard.

Two parties in a conversation must share a common interest with a shared vocabulary – or there will be no communication – no meaning.

In the parlance of Master Planned Communities, is it possible to design them with meaning from inception – or do they have to develop a patina, polished through the personalities and preferences of the residents?

You are looking for a new home – and you are looking in all the right neighborhoods. Our location, on Florida’s First Coast, should satisfy your expectations and suit your most every need.

As you preview homes, you will be best rewarded if you consider curbs, commons and community along with the attention you focus on curtains, countertops and cupboards. What I mean is – the layout, character, atmosphere and overall environment of a neighborhood is equally as important as the fixtures, features, style and condition of the home you will ultimately choose. Of course, the neighborhood amenities and its proximity to schools, shops, services, entertainment, work and play is also tremendously important.
