Ponte Vedra Beach Real Estate
Many people relocating to our area begin looking for real estate in Jacksonville but fall in love with the neighborhoods of Ponte Vedra Beach. Ponte Vedra Beach offers a country club lifestyle with convenient access to many shopping and dining options. Housing choices run the gamut from single bedroom condominiums to exclusive gated communities and spectacular single family oceanfront estates. From the 1940s through the 1970s, road construction opened this coastal area to development and to the expansion of summer homes along the beach. The area known as Old Ponte Vedra, which stretches on either side of Ponte Vedra Boulevard, dates from this era, and has seen significant rebuilding as older homes have given way to spectacular, luxury homes. More recently, large-scale gated community developments have continued to contribute to Ponte Vedra’s reputation as a resort community, and greatly expanded the housing options and local amenities.
Ponte Vedra Beach abuts the magnificent Guana Tolomato Matanzas Estuarine National Research Reserve (GTMNERR), a true Florida treasure and one of the last remaining ocean/intracoastal habitats that is in near pristine conditions. Within its 60,000 acres (240 km) are beaches, sand dunes, salt marshes, mangroves, tidal wetlands, tidal creeks, oyster bars, estuarine lagoons, maritime hardwood hammock, freshwater depression marshes, pond pine flatwoods and shell mound forests.
