Richmond American Homes introduces Julington Oaks in Mandarin.
Richmond American introduces Julington Oaks in Mandarin
Richmond American is building Julington Oaks, a 33-home community in close proximity to San Jose Blvd,/SR-13 and Julington Creek, in Mandarin. But don't mistake this for Julington Creek proper. Julington Oaks is situated just shy of the Julington Creek bridge near relatively new Julington Creek Road shopping center that includes Metro Diner, Fresh Market and Hurricanes Grill and Wings.
It's an upper-middle/high-end enclave that give buyers the shaded wooded Mandarin setting they're looking for without getting into the mega-development, Julington Creek, at Race Track road a few miles south on SR-13. 
This will be a very private and quiet space, just far enough off of the highway, but a two-minute trip to the Fresh Market, Metro Diner, et al. Model base prices range from $282,900 to the mid-$300's, but the decked out, furnished, upgraded models we saw can fetch close to $500K. 
Five "quick move-in" models by Richmond American in Julington Oaks:


Mattamy Homes Building in Bartram Park

Mattamy HomesPulte and several other new home builders in the desirable Bartram Park corridor, but Mattamy still has the only neighborhood of Single Family Detached homes in the popular Bartram Park area.  Bartram Park Preserve, the Mattamy Homes development is offering one and two-story single family home designs. Mattamy is working on building more than 400 homes in the growing Bartram Park development just north of the Duval County/St. Johns County line. 

At $5.3 million for the 50 acres purchased by Mattamy, Bartram Park Preserve will also be one of the largest tracts of land to be built up in Bartram Park since the popular community was developed in the mid to late 2000’s, 

Pulte is pre-selling the new Bayberry Townhomes in Bartram Park
Pulte commands a lot of ground in Bartram Park, with sold out communities like Greenbriar, which has been a huge hit with townhome buyers. 
They've got new townhomes pre-selling in the Bayberry community, just down the boulevard. Townhomes range form 1,440 to 1,514 square feet, from $159,990 to $170,990. They're three bedrooms, two and a half baths, the community is gated, and Pulte will surely have a lot of incentives right from the start.  
All three models have three bedrooms, two and a half baths and one car garages.

Future amenity center at Bartram Creek by KB Homes
Artist's rendering, planned amenity center at Bartram Creek by KB Homes. 

New home construction buyers are clamoring for all things Bartram. Bartram Creek by KB Homes follows along with what started with Bartram Springs off of Racetrack Road, then the myriad of housing and commerce that's developed at Bartram Park Boulevard, single family and condo homes south of St. Augustine Road have taken off in a big way. 
KB Homes has a lot of ground out here, and their newest development, Bartram Creek, will occupy 59 acres off of Racetrack Road. It's 168 home sites, prices beginning in the mid-$200s. Phase 1 sites are on the market now. 
A big seller for Bartram Creek will be the lack of CDD fees. Though we don't know what the HOA fees will be, the savings from a no CDD fee community can be significant to new contruction buyer's monthly bottom line in a brand new community. 
Square footage matters. 200 square feet free from ICI Homes
