Jacksonville Quiet Neighborhoods

We’ve all heard the catchphrase “location, location, location” when it comes to real estate and finding that perfect place to live. But a “good location” can often have different meanings among different kinds of home buyers. For many, being in a walkable location near the hustle and bustle of a downtown is the ideal setting. And for others, a little peace and quiet is truly what fits their personality most. If you’re searching Jacksonville homes for sale and the latter is more your speed, here’s a closer look at just some of the city’s more desirable quiet neighborhoods. 

Bentwater Place 

Homes that are around 20 or so years old that feature 3 to 4 bedrooms, attached 2-3 car garages, and fairly large lot sizes are what buyers can expect at homes in Bentwater Place on Jacksonville’s far east side. Along with being a low-key, low-traffic neighborhood, we also love Bentwater Place’s close proximity to Jacksonville area beaches, St. Johns Town Center, the University of North Florida, the Mayo Clinic, and countless other community amenities and local employers. 

Old Plank Plantation 

Located on the opposite side of town from Bentwater Place is Old Plank Plantation, a desirable residential neighborhood that was also developed back in the early 2000s. Prospective buyers will find that most Oak Plank Plantation homes are also single-story, and the community also features a wide sidewalk that’s great for walking, jogging, and of course walking your dog. Old Plank Plantation’s affordability helps make it an attractive destination for any home buyer looking for a quiet neighborhood, and with Highways 110, 295, and 95 all nearby, you’re never too far from downtown either.

Fishweir Park 

If you’re someone who values peace and quiet but also prefers a home with a little extra charm and character, take a closer look at Fishweir Park in Jacksonville’s Avondale neighborhood. Homes in the community are centered around the neighborhood’s namesake park, and because it’s an older, more established part of Jacksonville, streets are tree-lined and super quiet for the most park. Bungalows, ranches, cottage-style homes, and even a few two-story homes make up the local housing landscape in Fishweir Park, providing something for a a wider-range of home buyers looking for a laid-back residential setting. 

Highland Glen 

As a premier gated community in Jacksonville that limits outside traffic and noise by default, Highland Glen has to be mentioned somewhere on this list. Unlike sprawling master planned communities in Jacksonville, Highland Glen isn't overwhelmingly large, allowing it to maintain more of a quiet vibe that homeowners here love. You might also find homes in Highland Glen often have lush, mature landscaping, adding to the overall curb appeal and desirability of the neighborhood. But with most homes priced in the $800,000 to $1+ million range, it's also one of the more expensive options you'll find on our quietest neighborhoods list. 

Blue Lake Estates 

Although quite unscientific, here’s a good rule that always seems to hold up: if a neighborhood or community has a large pond, it tends to be pretty quiet and extremely desirable. And we can safely say that’s true at Blue Lake Estates down on Jacksonville’s far southwest side. Home buyers with kids will love the close proximity to Bishop John Snyder High School, not to mention the large, newer construction homes that almost all have at least two stories, 4 to 5 bedrooms, and oversized 2-3 car garages. And with most Blue Lake Estates homes asking under $500,000, we feel it offers an incredible value for buyers looking for that quintessential quiet neighborhood vibe.
