Search Jacksonville Bungalow Homes For Sale
As one of Florida's largest cities, home buyers have plenty of options when it comes to finding a new place to live in Jacksonville. And for those who don’t need a large amount of space but still want the feel of a single-family home, bungalow style homes in Jacksonville might just be the perfect solution. Jacksonville has several examples of bungalow-style homes on the market that are often more budget-friendly, but still come with plenty of desirable features and additions, as well as ample charm and character.
Typically, a bungalow home in Jacksonville has a modest design and is generally a single-story home. Floor plans inside bungalows are typically smaller, with perhaps two- to three-bedrooms, but oftentimes just one bath. A craftsman-style bungalow in Jacksonville probably has a shaded front porch and large windows. And it might also have an open design, with most rooms being on the smaller side compared with some of the newer construction homes that are going up in Florida right now.
Jacksonville Neighborhoods Where Bungalow Homes Are Common
Popular locations where you will likely find available bungalows on the market definitely include the Springfield Historic District of Jacksonville. Because the district’s just north of the downtown area, it means living within walking distance of area restaurants, shops, and more. Springfield is considered the city’s oldest neighborhood. Most of the neighborhood was built up around the late 1800s to the 1920s. Original bungalows in this part of Jacksonville may come with original hardwoods and other desirable features. However, it’s likely they have been updated over the years to include more modern features and additions.
Jacksonville’s Riverside neighborhood is also one of the oldest in the city. Not only is this part of the city known for its tree-lined streets, trendy boutiques, and antique shops, but you’ll likely find some charming bungalows on the market when you take your home search to this part of the city, as well. Again, because these are older homes, you’ll find that many bungalows in Riverside have since been remodeled or updated to reflect modern features but retain some of their original, historic charm. Riverside sits just adjacent to Avondale, which is also a desirable area of older homes in the city.
Pros & Cons of Buying a Jacksonville Bungalow Home
If you’re considering a bungalow home in Jacksonville, prospective home buyers need to consider all the pros and cons. That is, of course, the case with all types of homes, but bungalows have their own unique characteristics, and some don’t fit well with every lifestyle need. There’s no doubt affordability is a major advantage when it comes to bungalows, as it has been for generations. A bungalow can be a good option for first-time home buyers or anyone looking for a starter home. And they're often popular options for home buyers looking to downsize as well.
If you’re looking for a home with a bit more living space, a bungalow may not be the right fit, however. Typical Jacksonville bungalows have a compact layout, so you’ll be more restricted in how you utilize the space. While they work well some buyers not needing ample living space or storage, they may not be the best choice if you like to entertain, work from home, or do need lots of space to maneuver. On the other hand, if you have a large enough lot, adding on to a bungalow may be easier than trying to add on to a two-story home, which is also something buyers might want to consider. But keep in mind that some bungalows are now more than 100-years old in Jacksonville, and they’re still just as coveted today as they were all those years ago; so buyer competition may be fierce.
