Del Webb Ponte Vedra is a beautiful 55+ community in Northeast Florida.

Del Webb Ponte Vedra is a beautiful 55+ community in Northeast Florida.

Located just 30 minutes from Jacksonville, 15 minutes from the beach, and within one hour of Northeast Florida’s premiere master-planned communities, Del Webb Ponte Vedra is not a tough sell to active adults age 55+. Its parent community, Nocatee, is the third best-selling community in America thanks to its world class-amenities, preserved wetlands, and a prime location. Del Webb residents get to enjoy all of this along with the benefits of living in an age-restricted community—truly the best of both worlds.

Residences

Construction of Del Webb Ponte Vedra began in 2007 and the community will feature 1,988 homes once completed. Buyers can choose from single-family or carriage homes, while a few units in the four-story condominium building are currently available for resale. Properties are designed with a Mediterranean-inspired exterior, giving the community the easy-going vibe of a beach town.

Interiors are built with a free-flowing philosophy, using open floor plans to allow activities to blend from kitchen to dining room to living room. In other words, these homes are great for parties, and having a spacious backyard with a lanai doesn’t hurt either.

Homes come in a variety of two to four bedroom designs and feature options for gourmet kitchens, Corian countertops, separate laundry rooms, and tile and carpeting.

Single-family homes range from 1,157 to 2,634 square feet and are available as resale or new construction. They have two to four bedrooms, two to four bathrooms, and two to three-car garages.

The attached homes are built in two-story buildings, with eight units to a block, and are available for resale only. They range from 1,438 to 1,857 square feet of living space with two bedrooms, a den, two bathrooms, and a one-car garage.

The condominiums are in a four-story building with elevators. The condo choices include three different floor plans ranging from 1,810 to 2,129 square feet. Each unit comes with a screened lanai and has two or three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and lot parking. They are also available on a resale basis.

Outdoor Recreation

The wide array of outdoor activities available at Del Webb Ponte Vedra really sets it apart. The community's Central Park area features a 1,000 square-foot community garden with a herb garden and cabana for storage. Just north of Del Webb Ponte Vedra, you’ll find Davis Park, which boasts miles of walking trails and ponds. For a real hike, check out Nocatee Preserve, hosting 2,400 acres of undisturbed Florida wetland that stretches for 3.5 miles along the Tolomato River, offering amazing views and prime bird watching.

Amenities & Attractions

Residents needn’t go far for entertainment. The 37,800 square-foot Anastasia Club offers an impressive array of amenities, activities, and clubs. A huge resort-style pool offers the perfect place to cool off in the summer, complete with a sun deck, outdoor spa, and BBQ pavilion. For a more therapeutic experience, the indoor pool is kept at a soothing 82 degrees. Creative types appreciate the arts & crafts studio, which features ceramics, sewing, and painting.

Those looking for a little friendly competition have plenty of tennis, bocce ball, and pickleball courts. One major benefit of being a Nocatee resident is access to the Splash Water Park, an enormous H20-based playground boasting the highest water slide tower in Northeast Florida, an amenity the grandkids are sure to love. If you’re not thrilled by heights, the Lazy Tides River will be more your speed. Float through 450 feet of water on an inner tube while gazing at tropical rock formations, waterfalls, and geysers.

If residents find themselves missing the allure of the city, they can take a short trip to Jacksonville to catch a Jaguars game or visit the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens. The coastal city of St. Augustine is also nearby, where tourists flock to see beautiful Spanish colonial architecture and pristine beaches.

Whether close to home or exploring Northeast Florida, residents of Del Webb Ponte Vedra find a wealth of adventure waiting for them from the moment they arrive.
