Looking to build a 4/3 ~2,700 square foot house with some nice upgrades for under $500,000 in Nocatee. I've narrowed it down to Heritage Trace and Freedom Landing in Crosswater vs. The Colony and The Settlement in Twenty Mile. Does anyone have an opinion on the Twenty Mile area vs Crosswater area for a family of 4 with a toddler and a newborn? Pros and cons for each would be very helpful. Thanks!

I live in Twenty Mile but believe that Crosswater will be just as nice. Each has it's own theme. Since you are set on Nocatee, I can't think of any major cons with either one. Depends on:

Closeness to Nocatee Town Center (Twenty Mile),
Drive to Mickler's beach, PVB, Jax Beach (Twenty Mile is definitely closer),
Access to intracoastal to canoe etc. (Crosswater w/regards to soon to open Nocatee Landing which will have a pavilion, bathrooms, etc. )
Closeness to Splash and Spray water parks- (About the same)
Palm Valley Academy (Crosswater in zone) (Twenty Mile is much closer)
Construction- (Twenty Mile- Yes, you will be dealing with ongoing construction in The Colony and The Settlement but Twenty Mile is almost built out. Crosswater is in early build stage with another 3000+ homes to go)
Community Amenities- (About the same- Crosswater will have pool, park(s), and dog parks like Twenty Mile)

TBH, you can't go wrong with either one. Just depends on what is important to you and your family. Good luck!

If I were you I would see which area has a lot that I am happy with. I think 20 Mile is a nicer area with expensive enclaves. The communities you are interested in have nicer site plans and are more upscale than Crosswater. If you are spending 500k best to be in a neighborhood where that would not be the most expensive home in the area. 20 mile the houses start at the mid to high 300's, Crosswater starts at the high 200's. I think you would have better resale in 20 mile.

I also lean toward 20 mile (i live there). I was just biking through the settlement/colony area and think it's going to turn out to be really nice. love what they're doing so far with the entrance and layout of the roads etc. Crosswater will be nice too. The builder and floor plans you like the best should also help decide.
