Established in the 1960’s, Deerwood was the first gated community and country club in Jacksonville.  It was Bryant and Richard Skinner’s vision to develop a neighborhood with voluminous lots, curvy roads, large common areas, preserves, lakes, and a premier country club featuring golf, tennis, and swimming.  To make it accessible to the rest of the city, they donated land to create Southside Blvd., JTB, and 500 acres to become the UNF campus.  With approximately 900 homes priced above $400,000, Deerwood is nearly built out.  There are two, fully staffed guard entrances located at Baymeadows and Southside Boulevard and Jacksonville Country Day school has a private drop-off entrance within the neighborhood.  Tinseltown shopping and restaurant commercial center is two miles north, Target, HomeGoods and Home Depot are two miles south, two Publix markets are less than a ½ mile from the gates and the Beaches are a 15-20 minute drive.  The quick access to I95, Baymeadows Rd., and JTB and a top-rated golf course/private country club further entice buyers to this community to raise their families for generations.  Where else can you find ½, 5 and even a 20-acre lot with custom built homes and located near the very best of what Jacksonville has to offer?
