Happy New Year everyone! I was curious if anyone is familiar with some of the small neighborhoods just south of JTB, south Ponte Vedra area, specifically around where like the Publix and Pussers restaurant are. I've been looking at houses there, 2 or 3 bedroom nothing bigger as it's just me, no kids so schools aren't important. My aunt and uncle live close by in Marsh Landing they've given me some insight on it just thought I would see what CD folks that might live or have lived in this area think and any tips you might have.

I'm guessing you're talking about some of the smaller neighborhoods within TPC (off of Alta Mar and Palmera Dr?). Regardless, if it's just you and want to stay close to your relatives in Marsh Landing, I think it's a great place to settle down. That area is safe and quiet plus you have Sawgrass Village nearby as you referenced and Mickler's Beach is just a few miles down the road. FWIW, I have some friends that rent/own all over TPC (including the 2-3 BR areas) and they seem to like it. I don't think you can really go wrong with any of the smaller neighborhoods in PVB to tell you the truth.

Just an FYI, the area you referenced isn't considered South Ponte Vedra Beach. It's just PVB. South PVB is more towards Vilano Beach/GTM Reserve (closer to St. Augustine)

The areas in Sawgrass TPC are in the Alma Mar area close to where we live. The houses and lots are smallish and were built some 40+ years ago before TPC existed. The golf courses and roads and other neighborhoods were added later. With the revitilazation of the Oak Bridge Golf Course and the Clubhouse and grounds in general I would recommend this area before the prices go up. You can still get a nice house there for the upper 300's or lower 400's (more than they were a year ago). Great neighborhood. Good Luck. This one looks nice: 628 Miramar Ln, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL 32082

The area I was thinking is across from sawgrass area, like some of the smaller little neighborhoods. Funny you mention Palmera Dr my grandparents lived on that road for years before they passed away, sold their house in the late 90s, was such a nice area! I appreciate the input so far, will try and look around at some of these houses. Thundarr thanks that one you sent looks really nice!

The area you are talking about is truly amazing - we live in Palm Valley and I would not choose any other part of Florida!

Since you are somewhat familiar with it, I'm wondering if you have any feeling one way or the other about house vs. condo. There are a lot of condos in between Marsh Landing and Mickler's Beach and particularly across from Sawgrass like you mentioned. There are very affordable ones (high $100s-low $200s) that have great HOA amenities and some even have a beach access point near the lodge on PV Blvd. If you are looking for a house, the only drawback may be the price tags since this area has really increased in price quickly so now smaller homes that were about $300-$325k in 2016 are now in the high $300s - mid $400s! (I am talking about Seaside and the front patio homes of Fairfield, etc.) Overall though, GREAT area - we love it here and so does my mother-in-law and our kids (ages 7-18), so you have 3-generations with the same opinion on that! :-)

I would definitely consider a condo especially if it's either walking distance or beachfront! I'm trying to stay under $300k if possible, and I might even rent for a year just to see if there is one area I might like better than the other. I've driven down through Palm Valley, it looks really nice! One thing I've always liked with Jacksonville is everytime it's raining and colder here in Ga, it's almost always sunny and milder down there, these on and off rainy days in the winter get to be depressing, just hoping for the sun to come out so I can go for a jog!

Good luck finding a beachfront condo for 300k. Especially in PVB. I think renting is a good idea, but keep in mind the escalating prices.

Yeah I didn’t think there were any in the 300k range, going to keep looking at houses and probably rent first while I look around.
