Mattamy Homes, Pulte and several other new home builders in the desirable Bartram Park corridor, but Mattamy still has the only neighborhood of Single Family Detached homes in the popular Bartram Park area. Bartram Park Preserve, the Mattamy Homes development is offering one and two-story single family home designs. Mattamy is working on building more than 400 homes in the growing Bartram Park development just north of the Duval County/St. Johns County line.
At $5.3 million for the 50 acres purchased by Mattamy, Bartram Park Preserve will also be one of the largest tracts of land to be built up in Bartram Park since the popular community was developed in the mid to late 2000’s,
Bartram Park is being developed by Eastland Company LLC, and the area has swelled to a whopping 2,600 acres to the south of Mandarin just bordering the St. Johns County line.
Greater demand for more single family homes can be a good sign of economic recovery, say the experts, so Bartram Park Preserve, and Mattamy’s big investment, is a welcome sign for the local housing market.
There are several reasons that Bartram Park has grown at such a rapid pace: proximity to large corporate campuses such as Web.com and Citigroup, and it’s just across I-95 from Baptist South Hospital. Another great draw to Bartram Park are the area’s schools. They are some of the highest-ranked in Jacksonville, based on state-wide testing performance.
