Just south of downtown Jacksonville lies the Ortega community, one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in the city. An exclusive selection of riverside homes is perfectly positioned on a private peninsula off the western bank of the St. Johns River. Even as you follow the Ortega homes for sale away from the water's edge, you'll be treated to a selection of luxury historic homes that have been meticulously restored to their former glory.
Life in the historical district carries the original dream of prominent architect, Henry J. Klutho. Once christened "Old Ortega," the aged buildings and stoic brick-faced homes are all a part of Jacksonville's third nationally recognized historic area.
With such spectacular estates lining the streets of Ortega, there's no denying the majesty of the community's waterfront homes for sale. With the St. Johns and Ortega Rivers forming the peninsula's bounds, you'll fall in love with the sight of calm waters waving to you through every window in your house. Best of all, residents can dock their boats at the prized Ortega River Marina.
Even with its secluded charm, Ortega is still a part of the metropolitan Jacksonville area. You can easily access the rest of the city by way of Roosevelt Boulevard or US Route 17.
