Rendering of a new home at Cottages at Jax Beach
A rendering of one of the six new homes offered in Cottages at Jax Beach.
Here’s some noteworthy new development happening just a block from the ocean in Jacksonville Beach. It’s called The Cottages at Jax Beach, and it’s a cozy little 6-home enclave just north of Atlantic Blvd, off at 9th Avenue North, between Third Street and the ocean.

  • FACT #3:  Builders would rather give upgrades, design credits, paid closing costs, rebates. We know them. We bring them a lot of business, so we can make these things happen to a

La Terrazza San Jose Jacksonville Fl   There are a few neighborhoods in Jax that can truly claim their home designs as "unique," but we've seen nothing quite like La Terrazza, on Jacksonville's Southside, off of Baymeadows road. They take the Mediterranean villa style further than just about any other neighborhood of that style, which has become so  attractive to high end buyers for their natural, European look and feel.    La Terrazza is small, just 28 single family homes and eight terrace homes will be centered around access to Goodby's Creek, and they'll eventually accommodate private boat slips and lifts.
