Would Orange Park, FL. be a suitable place for me?

Asked by Kenfran, Ireland, WV Tue Mar 25, 2008

I have been advised by friends that Orange Park, FL, would be a suitable place for me to settle when I finally move from Ireland to the USA, hopefully later in 2008. I am a single male artist/designer in my 50s. I suffer from asthma and they say the air is good there and it's not too humid in the summer. I would like to find a bungalow (no upstairs) with air-con, at least three bedrooms, a big kitchen and a big back garden which would be safe for pets (and me of course!). Any advice would be appreciated.

Orange Park is a great community. Seems everyone who lives there loves it. Orange park is bordered by the St. Johns River and Doctors lake on the East. All of our homes have central air conditon and heat. Homes in Orange Park are usually very competitively priced. One of our local Home inspectors is from Ireland. His whole family is here. Here is his company e-mail: His name is Michael Tell him Cathy Sloan gave you his contact info. If there is any way I can assist pleas be sure to contact me.

Orange Park is a great location. There's plenty of shopping in close proximity and there are lots of great restaurants too. It's also one of the most affordable locations, compared to Jacksonville and St. Augustine. As for the humidity, I'm afraid you'll find that all over Florida. But one of the nice things about anywhere in north Florida is that you actually have some seasons. I'm in Daytona, but have lots of family in Jacksonville, St. Augustine and Orange Park. It's interesting to make the drive back and forth. The climate is much nicer in north Florida. I think you'd enjoy it. And there are plenty of agents here who can help you.

Your in Luck! Yes Orange Park is an excellent place and in addition it is not far from two areas where artists and designers congregate. We have quaint areas, upscale areas, modern areas, all within Orange Park or also nearby. The chances of finding the perfect nook for you is almost 100%!
