Intracoastal West FL Real Estate
This relatively new area of Jacksonville extends east from Southside Boulevard to the Intracoastal Waterway. The construction of J. Turner Butler Boulevard, which extends from Phillips Highway to the beaches, opened up construction in this area, and it hasn't slowed since. Some used to refer to the area as East Arlington, but today residents prefer to call their community Intracoastal West, reflecting the area's proximity to the water and the beaches.
Homes in Intracoastal West are almost exclusively new, with most constructed in the last five years. Many are in beautifully planned communities, with gated access and amenities such as a community pool and clubhouse. Jacksonville Golf and Country Club, Glen Kernan Golf and Country Club, and Queen's Harbour Yacht and Country Club are among the most well-known developments in this area. A wide range of more modest housing is also available.
The community's access to water is obviously a selling point, with its many boatslips and marinas. Homes with Intracoastal views and direct boat access are prized finds, and command prices accordingly. But even without a view from home, residents of this area enjoy easy access to the area's waterways for recreational fishing and boating. As the area is fairly newly developed, shopping centers and schools are also recently built. The Intracoastal West area enjoys easy access to the beaches and to the office parks of the Southside.&
Several major medical centers are located in this region, such as the world-renowned Mayo Clinic Jacksonville, located on San Pablo Road. A few smaller office parks have followed the development of the Mayo Clinic, but Intracoastal West remains primarily a residential area.
