What do Jacksonville natives think of 'The Woods" community on Atlantic?

Asked by Lookingaround, Jacksonville, FL Fri Aug 3, 2007

Help the community by answering this question:


The Woods is a moderately priced gated neighborhood off Atlantic Blvd, which is a fairly busy main road that runs from downtown to the beach. There are some great lots at the beginning of The Woods with ample trees that are around 1/2-3/4 of an acre. Once you go further back the houses get newer and closer together and there aren't as many trees. In all, the houses are well kept and the neighborhood is pleasant, but be prepared for the traffic to get worse and worse on Atlantic as development continues to soar in Jacksonville. Of course, that's happening pretty much everywhere in Jax anyways.

I'm a Jacksonville native, and also live at the beach. I've spent some time back and forth to The Woods community many times, and I find it to be well priced, well located, and naturally beautiful. I think it's worth looking into, and I'd be glad to show you a few properties if you think the area might be a match for you.

I'd be glad to try to pair you with another area if you find that The Woods doesn't suit you... Of course, we'd need to determine exactly why, solve that, and wah la!

We owned homes at the Beaches for 25 years. We made the decision to buy a home in The Woods 5 years ago and our only regret is that we didn't buy here sooner! We bought in the older section and have a huge lot with a spacious home. We can be at the beach in 5 minutes, we're close to many nice stores and restaurants, as well as the major roadways-Beach, Atlantic, JTB. One of my favorite reasons that I love living here are the beautiful paved nature trails. I never get tired of seeing the beautiful trees and lakes.
I think The Woods is one of the best value-priced home communities in Jacksonville. If you look at what you can buy in a 24 hour guard-gated community, and take into consideration the size of the lots and the square footage of the homes, I'm surprised people aren't lined up trying to buy in here!
