Love Your Home

Love is in the air, but is it in your home? After years in the same place, it can be easy to forget what attracted us to our home in the first place.

Welcome Home to Arlington

The Arlington area of Jacksonville is roughly bounded by the St Johns River to the west and north, the Intracoastal Waterway to the east, and Beach Blvd to the South. Jacksonville’s Arlington is home to the first European settlement in North America, Fort Caroline.  Pictured above, Fort Caroline is now a State Park. In 1955, a controversial bridge, known to locals as the “Bridge to Nowhere”, was built across the St. Johns River heading east of Downtown Jacksonville.

Welcome to Ortega

Have you ever been curious about different Jacksonville neighborhoods? If you venture from Mandarin over the Buckman Bridge, to the North, you will find the unique neighborhood of Ortega – a pleasing mix of 1940’s bungalows, head-turning riverfront estates, and practically everything in-between. The tiny Ortega River drawbridge is the area’s signature feature. The homes lining Ortega Boulevard featuring the Downtown skyline views enjoyed from their backyards are some of the prettiest houses in town. The upscale social hubs here are Timuquana Country Club and the Florida Yacht Club. Because NAS Jax makes up Ortega’s southern boundary, having a Navy […]
