John Gorrie School -- Gordon's Castle

Only a few homes remain available for sale at The John Gorrie a condominium. Act quickly to purchase your piece of Jacksonville history and be a part of the proud group who call The John Gorrie home.

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 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 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 John Gorrie offers one- and two-bedroom residences and two-story townhomes priced from the upper-$100,000s. The community’s amenities include private gated parking, a private courtyard, custom fitness center, elevators, a resident reading room and Wi-Fi Internet access.

“Restoring a historic structure in Jacksonville and converting it into The John Gorrie a condominium while keeping significant 1920s characteristics and charm is a project I am exceptionally proud of,” said Weaver. “The community’s response to the renovation has been outstanding and The John Gorrie is a place that all ages appreciate and enjoy.”

The John Gorrie is home to young professionals, retirees and families alike, and to the owners’ delight, pet-friendly. In addition to being Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and Fannie Mae (FNMA) approved, making it possible for qualified homebuyers to obtain low down payment and fixed-rate mortgages at competitive rates, owners at The John Gorrie a condominium receive an ad valorem tax abatement toward their homeowner’s tax bill through 2021.
