Earlier this month, Del Webb changed the name of one of its Florida developments from Riverwood at Nocatee to Del Webb Ponte Vedra. However, the new name is likely to simply enhance the community’s strong appeal for retirees. This active adult community is located just minutes from the Atlantic Ocean and only 20 miles from Jacksonville, making it a great destination for those who enjoy coastal living near a thriving urban center.

As part of the larger Nocatee master-planned community, Del Webb Ponte Vedra is a quiet enclave with its own exclusive 38,000 square-foot clubhouse. This tranquil neighborhood is the only age-restricted subsection found within the Nocatee community. It welcomes residents 55+ and provides plenty of amenities to support a healthy, active adult lifestyle. The community also has the distinction of having the lowest starting prices for homes within Nocatee.

The Homes of Ponte Vedra

Construction of this age-restricted enclave began in 2007, and plans for the community include space for 1,988 residences made up of condos, attached homes, and single-family homes. The architecture throughout the development features Mediterranean elements, as well as stucco exteriors, 25-year roofs, and hurricane shutters.

Other common upgrades include gourmet kitchens, Corian countertops, and 42-inch cabinetry with crown molding. Whether buying a single-family or attached residence, there are plenty of options to let homebuyers find their ideal home. Four-story condominium buildings have elevators and condo units with three different floor plans, while each of the two-story carriage homes contain upstairs and downstairs single-level living. Single-family homes have the most variety with 17 different floor plans, each with two- or three-car garages.

The outdoor amenities of The Anastasia Club span 15 acres and include a huge pool with sun deck, outdoor spa, and barbecue pavilion for leisurely days.

Amenities of Ponte Vedra 

In 2010, the larger Nocatee opened its town center, which is sure to be the community’s central hub of social activity. It offers residential services such as banking, gas stations, dry cleaning, and a grocery store. Its shops and restaurants are also favorite hangouts for local residents.

Within Del Webb Ponte Verda itself, homeowners have access to their own 38,000 square-foot clubhouse. This recreation center offers resort-style amenities such as a state-of-the-art fitness center, an arts and crafts area, a library, and a cafe.

Outdoor Recreation & Amenities 

Outdoor attractions include a large swimming pool with a spacious sun deck, a barbecue pavilion, four tennis courts, six bocce courts, nine pickleball courts, and six miles of nature trails. Nature is a big part of both Del Webb Ponte Verda and the larger Nocatee community. Residents have access to Nocatee’s hiking trails, community park, dog park, and soccer fields. The community also lies adjacent to the Nocatee Preserve, which boasts 2,400 acres of undisturbed flora and fauna.

Though Del Webb has changed the name of this Jacksonville area community from Riverwood at Nocatee to Del Webb Ponte Verda, the developer has not changed their approach to exciting, resort-style living. Plan a visit today and explore the Del Webb lifestyle for yourself.
