October 22nd, 2012 · Leave a Comment

The John Gorrie a condominium, one of Jacksonville’s most unique condo communities, is now offering homes for sale including charming studios, one- and two-bedroom condominiums and two-story townhomes. The distinct architecture and rich history of the building, the former John Gorrie Junior High School, is attracting buyers who are captivated not only by the wonderful, convenient location of The John Gorrie, but also by the outstanding attention to detail and care taken in the building’s renovation.

Each unit contains significant architectural elements and features, often signifying the space’s use during the time the buildings operated as a school. For example, the first floor studio unit 1103 – one of four studio homes available – was part of the mezzanine level of the auditorium. At just under 800 square feet, the one-bath studio has a beautiful arched ceiling, original period plaster molding and a stunning decorative stained glass and brass architectural element embedded in its curved ceiling. The studio is priced at $136,000.

“It is amazing to discover how each home relates to the former school, and it is noteworthy how the distinct elements have been woven into each residence’s personality and history,” said Lee Elmore, sales representative for Prudential Network Realty and The John Gorrie. “This particular studio unit is a favorite with interested buyers, especially its private terrace, of which there are only 11 in the two buildings.”

The entrance to the studio opens into a spacious living and kitchen area, with a convenient eat-in counter top and bar. The gorgeous espresso-shaded gourmet kitchen contains stainless steel GE appliances, CaesarStone counter tops. Also included is a large closet, laundry area and bathroom. The neutral colored bath has a luxury pedestal sink and modern glass shower.

In addition to their own homes, residents enjoy contemporary community amenities, which include a custom-designed fitness center, elevators, private gated parking and a resident reading room featuring Wi-Fi internet access. The restored original private courtyard provides residents with a tranquil outdoor gathering space. In every home and every common space, as much of the building’s historic and architectural significance has been preserved as possible.

The John Gorrie is located on the corner of Stockton and College streets, within walking distance of a multitude of local restaurants, boutiques and shopping areas. Residents also enjoy close proximity to the banks of the St. Johns River, oak-canopied streets and a sampling of the area’s most marvelously maintained parks. The community is minutes from downtown Jacksonville with national sporting venues and cultural landmarks such as the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens in Riverside.
