Atlantic Beach Real Estate
Atlantic Beach Real Estate
Atlantic Beach real estate is a hot market. The reinvention of Selva Marina Country Club into Atlantic Beach Country Club and its surrounding neighborhood brought Atlantic Beach to the forefront of many buyers minds. As Atlantic Beach Country Club real estate has been built out, the Atlantic Beach real estate market there has been going gangbusters.
Some of the desirable real estate is anything east of Sherry and Seminole due to its proximity to the beach. Driving through you’ll see new homes scattered amongst tear downs and charming beach cottages. Lot lines are smaller in Atlantic Beach compared to those in Ponte Vedra. The living is denser with a very neighborly and walkable feel. The Neptune Beach Town Center sits just between Atlantic Beach and Neptune Beach, and it’s a great walking destination for residents.
For oceanfront homes or condos buyers will be looking at either Ocean Boulevard or Beach Avenue. The streets are narrow, quaint and quiet outside of the homeowners milling in the streets to go surfing or walking. For investment property, the deals east of Seminole Road are harder to find. However, west of Seminole is still up and coming as you start to hit Mayport Road with homes under $300,000 to be found.
Unlike Ponte Vedra real estate, there aren’t many defined neighborhoods in Atlantic Beach. The main neighborhoods are:
