Avondale & Riverside FL Real Estate
Riverside enjoys the historic architecture and waterfront views of Avondale, but with a more urban flavor. The site of Jacksonville's bohemian mecca, Five Points, Riverside has a distinctive "artsy" feel. Five Points features art galleries, coffee houses and unique shops which cater to a young, hip crowd. For the more conservative, Jacksonville's premier art museum, The Cummer Gallery of Art, is located in Riverside, with its beautiful sculpture garden overlooking the St. Johns River.
While the atmosphere of Riverside may be young, the homes generally predate World War II. The neighborhood is home to many historically significant homes bearing the signatures of important architects. Mediterranean Revival, Colonial Revival and Prairie Style architecture are all well represented on Riverside's friendly neighborhood streets. While many of the homes are grand and elegant, there are also many charming bungalows that offer the allure and craftsmanship of the era at a more modest price.
