Lakewood is a charming little community tucked between San Jose Boulevard and University Boulevard. Originally built in the 1950s, the close-knit neighborhood has evolved into a self-contained haven that caters to residents of all ages. The community has many single-family homes for sale, ranging from two to four bedrooms, as well as a number of condos for sale.
As you travel along the boulevard, you’ll find a variety of businesses that’ll suit your every need. With abundant restaurants, grocery stores, churches, and bustling shopping centers abound, there’s no questioning the fact that the Lakewood community was designed to cater to any lifestyle and interest.
Outdoor and boating enthusiasts love the area, too. Many houses sit directly on the St. Johns River, offering picturesque views and direct access to the water. Even houses that aren’t on the river can benefit from the nearby Goodby’s Creek boat launch, from which residents frequently set sail for any number of aquatic adventures.
Residents enjoy a quick commute to work and school, yet another benefit of purchasing from Lakewood’s real estate listings. The University of North Florida, Jacksonville University, and multiple Florida State College campuses are all nearby. Healthcare facilities like Memorial Hospital and St. Vincent’s Southside ensure you’re never too far away from medical help.
Lakewood property for sale isn’t far from area attractions either. Living here, you’ll only be minutes away from the clear waters and powdered sands of Jacksonville Beach. Also, there’s always something happening — whether it’s a concert, a sports game, or some other exciting event — at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena.
