Hidden Treasures in Northeast Florida

By
Real Estate Agent with Norville Realty

 

Welcome to our Charming small town.

 Park at Green Cove

The City of Green Cove Springs

  

The area was first settled in the mid 1800's and was called White Sulfur Springs. The spring in the mid 1850's made the area a tourist destination, as some believed the warm sulfur waters were medicinal. A few of the more notable visitors that vacationed here were the Astor's, the Vanderbilt's and Henry Flagler, who with his railroad was a major catalyst in Florida's growth.

 

In the 1850's about 1500 people lived in Green Cove, today that number is about 6,000, in town. The population in the greater Green Cove area is approximately 24,000; even with our growth we still have that relaxed, friendly small town flavor.

 

Green Cove Springs is growing, with places like, Magnolia Point, a gated, golf course community, the new Bay Street Condominiums on the river and in the planning stages more waterfront development, lofts, offices and a hotel.

Green Cove Springs is the county seat for Clay County. The county includes the towns of; Orange Park, Fleming Island, Middleburg, Lake Asbury and Keystone Heights. Some of the communities you will find here are Oakleaf, Orange Park Country Club, Eagle Harbor, Pace Island, Fleming Plantation, Magnolia Point, Margarets Walk, Rolling Hills, Ravines and Fox Meadow. There is something for every budget and lifestyle in Clay County.

If you would like to have a lifestyle that can be everything from the quick, vibrant heartbeat of the city, (Jacksonville), or the more active atmosphere of many of our suburban neighborhoods that offer all the amenities; shopping, entertainment and great schools, or maybe you would like to have the friendlier feel of a "small town" (Green Cove Springs) experience to live in. No matter what or where you are in your thinking about a place to live, this area of Florida, from oceanfront to country, we have it all. 

 

Come; join us, we are happy to have you!

Love the photos. I personally love Green Cove Springs. Great place to buy a car as well. Although, Penny Farms is probably my most favorite place in the area. absolutely gorgeous with the old live oaks and winding roads. Like you stepped back in time.

HI Ann - I've received my I.R.E.S. Designation in Vancouver, BC, Canada today and I noticed that you have a IRES designation as well.  I'm presently building a larger network so that your listings can be featured in my city (for an international exposure), and mine can be featured by you.  Presently I have approximately 20 listings which might be of interest to you.  


Look forward to chatting some more with you with respect to co-listing each other's properties, if you are interested in speaking further?  Cheers, Jark.
