JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (Sept. 25, 2012) – A new designer-decorated, single-family model home is now open at Old San Jose on the River, the riverfront community on San Jose Boulevard near Jacksonville’s historic San Marco neighborhood.
"Our Avondale model is designed for enjoying life’s greatest moments with a comfortable, casually elegant style,” said Barbara Ondo of Barbara Ondo Design Group. “This home has a spacious, open design that is defined by its wonderful form and function.”

The Avondale model features a French Country exterior elevation and more than 3,300 square feet of interior living space. The model showcases several pre-construction options including a dining room, additional bedroom and two bonus rooms. The home has an expansive furnished outdoor living space with a fire pit and paver floor.
Ondo’s design fuses contemporary and traditional styles with warm and cool tones. Her approach mixes the clean, crisp lines of modern, urbanization and riverfront coastal with a farmhouse flavor. The color palette features shades of turquoise, carbon grey and warm neutral hues such as light truffle, sea salt and mink. Hickory charcoal wood flooring flows from the entry into the family living and entertaining areas. The large gourmet kitchen features oversized tile flooring, granite countertops, stainless steel Bosch appliances, gas cooktop and stainless steel farmhouse sink. The kitchen opens into the family room and also has a large café overlooking the outdoor living area. There is a private master suite and an abundance of storage throughout the home.
The Avondale and all of the single-family homes at Old San Jose on the River include a three-car garage with carriage-style doors and paver driveway, concrete tile roof, 10-foot ceilings, and Rinnai tankless gas water heater to highlight just a few of the included appointments and specifications. In keeping with the heritage of historic San Jose and San Marco, each floor plan offered at Old San Jose on the River has a variety of architectural themes and street elevations from which to select and will include distinctive custom elements throughout.
