Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Represents Dynamic Communities

If you are looking for a new home in Northeast Florida, you can start by searching FloridaNetworkRealty.com.

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty represents the best addresses in the First Coast including the communities of Atlantic Beach Country Club, The John Gorrie a condominium and Villages of Seloy.

“For more than 20 years, our firm has had the privilege of representing many of the finest communities in Northeast Florida,” said Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty Founder, President and CEO Linda Sherrer. “Our current portfolio includes an exclusive coastal country club community, a historic and fully-renovated condominium in Riverside and a quintessential ‘55 and up’ community in St. Augustine.”


Atlantic Beach Country Club

Located less than a half mile from the ocean, Atlantic Beach Country Club is one of the most popular new home communities in Northeast Florida. Residents enjoy being just a chip shot away from the community’s golf course and a short walk or bike ride from the beach.

Nestled in the heart of Atlantic Beach, the community has 178 new single-family homes surrounding an 18-hole 6,815-yard championship golf course, recently named the host site of the 2016 Web.com Tour Championship in October. Residents also enjoy seven Har-Tru tennis courts, a junior Olympic-size swimming pool with water features and a spectacular 16,000-square-foot clubhouse offering a variety of dining options, a fitness center, tennis and golf pro shops and locker rooms.

The modern coastal club community by Atlantic Beach Partners, LLC, offers an incredible location and lifestyle. Homeowners also enjoy the benefits of a natural gas community, sea breezes and the peaceful setting of golf course living.

The development team partnered with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty to sell 58 of the 178 home sites. To date, only 11 of those sites remain available. Home sites range in price from $285,000 to $445,000. The other 120 home sites have been contracted to the community’s two preferred builders, Toll Brothers and Riverside Homes.

Those who purchase home sites from Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty have up to three years to begin construction of their home and may select a custom home builder of their choice. An Atlantic Beach County Club social family membership is included with the purchase of a home site.

John Gorrie School -- Gordon's Castle

The John Gorrie a condominium

A limited number of homes remain available for sale at the historic and fully-renovated The John Gorrie a condominium, located in popular Riverside.  A Federal Housing Administration (FHA), Fannie Mae (FNMA) and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) approved residence, qualified homebuyers at The John Gorrie can obtain a low down payment and fixed-rate mortgage at competitive rates, allowing them an opportunity to purchase a piece of history.

Priced from the upper-$100,000s, the cost to rent a similar property exceeds the cost of homeownership at The John Gorrie. Owners also receive an ad valorem tax abatement toward their homeowner’s tax bill through 2021.

As the building’s ornate Mediterranean Revival architecture demonstrates, the former John Gorrie Junior High School was constructed in 1923 and was designed by noted Jacksonville architects Roy A. Benjamin and Mellen C. Greeley. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1987 before closing in 1997, community advocate Delores Barr Weaver and her husband, Wayne, purchased the former school with plans to renovate and restore the historic buildings, transforming them into what is now The John Gorrie a condominium. The community has received numerous accolades including the prestigious Urban Land Institute North Florida Award for Excellence in the Reuse/Repurpose category.

Offering one- and two-bedroom residences and two-story townhomes, The John Gorrie consists of 68 residences with luxurious contemporary amenities including 12-foot ceilings, expansive windows, stainless steel GE appliances, CaesarStone countertops and hardwood floors. The community’s amenities include private gated parking, a private courtyard, custom fitness center, elevators, a resident reading room and Wi-Fi Internet access.

The John Gorrie is home to young professionals, retirees and families alike. The John Gorrie is located near shops, restaurants and entertainment. Residents are in close proximity to the St. Johns River and a variety of beautiful parks, including The John Gorrie Dog Park coming soon to Riverside Park.
