    Windsor Parke

    What a great neighborhood! Windsor Parke has a terrific golf course, which Larry recently played and shot with Jacksonville real estate photographer, Nicholas Johnson.  Their “movie” is to the right.  With 14 different residential and commercial neighborhoods, you would think there is often a wide variety of homes for sale at any time.  However, the turnover here tends to be low.  Homes for sale tend to range in the mid $300s -$400s, ranging from 2,000 – 3,000 sq. ft, with the usual Southside Jacksonville mix of 3 and 4 bedrooms.  Some have the additional 1/2 bath, but not all.  Of the current 9 listing available 5 have a powder room. Windsor Parke is considered a quiet neighborhood with jogging trails, and pleasant streets to walk along.  According to the Associations’ website –

    Roadways were planned so that you can leave your home and reach shopping and retail establishments using our network of roads, thus reaching your destination without once having to cross or travel on any of the city’s arterial highways.
