Florida’s First Coast and St. John’s County in particular have come to be well known as a “golfer’s paradise,” in fact some of the most scenic and well-maintained courses in Florida are located here. Beautiful new homes featuring prime views of the fairways are found in Palencia, St. Johns Golf and Country Club, South Hampton, King and the Bear, and the World Golf.
The Cimarrone neighborhood’s par 72, 6,891 yard long course, designed by David Postlethwait, was awarded four stars by Golf Digest Magazine. Julington Creek Plantation's golf course opened in 1988 and is open to the public.
In addition to the luxury homes for sale in the golf neighborhoods, custom built homes are available in Bartram Plantation, Fruit Cove (homes on the river), Istoria, Marsh Harbor, Plantation Estates, St Johns Forest, Waterbury, Worthington Park, and Whitlock Farms. Many of these neighborhoods still have lots available, all of them have resales. Homes in these communities usually feature large nature preserve lots, three car garages, contemporary designer kitchens, and spacious floor plans.
