David Weekley Homes, Providence Homes, Riverside Homes and Toll Brothers are now selling new homes from the High $400's in Crosswinds, one of Nocatee's final neighborhoods! Below are five of the top reasons why families should consider building a new home in Crosswinds:


1. Proximity to Pine Island Academy
Crosswinds is located across from Pine Island Academy, one of St. Johns County’s newest K-8 schools. Not only can students easily walk or ride bikes to school, The PARC Group is also designing a golf cart path to directly connect Crosswinds residents to Pine Island Academy. St. Johns County is the #1 Rated School District in Florida with Nocatee students attending many of its A-rated schools. Check out the interactive maps of Explore Nocatee to view early education centers and schools located within Nocatee.


2. A Variety of Home Designs

Crosswinds is unique in that it features both single-family homes and villas ranging from 1,694 to 2,550 square feet of living space. In total, there are TWENTY different floor-plans available in Crosswinds. Whether you're searching for low-maintenance living or a spacious single-family residence, Crosswinds has new construction options for nearly every home-buyer!

3. Nocatee Parks & Green Spaces
Crosswinds residents will enjoy close proximity to parks and green spaces, including the centrally located Crosswinds neighborhood park! This thoughtfully-designed green space will feature a playground, shade structures, tables and more. In addition, there will be four smaller pocket parks nestled within Crosswinds. Once you step outside the neighborhood, Nocatee's extensive network of Greenway Trails offers over 30 miles of pathways for running, cycling, roller blading and walking. In addition, Crosswater residents are only 3 miles from the Intracoastal Waterway and the paddle/kayak launch at the Nocatee Landing amenity. Living near parks not only promotes physical and mental well-being, but also enhances the overall quality of life by providing opportunities for recreation, socialization, and a connection to the natural world.


4. EV Approved – Golf Cart Friendly 

Nocatee was the first Electric Vehicle (EV) Approved community in Northeast Florida providing residents with an eco-friendly alternative form of transportation from anywhere within the community. To enjoy everyday conveniences, Crosswinds residents only need to hop in the golf cart to access grocery stores, hair salons, restaurants, banks, health care and so much more in the Nocatee Town Center. Check out the Town Center Business Directory to filter by category or to view them all. Traveling by golf-cart is ideal with Northeast Florida's year-round pleasant weather! 


5. Choose Your Neighbor and Make Friends

With over 200 homesites, you can invite all of your favorite friends/family members to join you in this exciting new Nocatee neighborhood. A new home in Crosswater also means you have access to Nocatee's award-winning monthly and annual events, like Nocatee A-Glow, Nocatee Uncorked Wine Tastings, Adult Comedy Nights and the family-friendly Roscolusa Songwriters Festival!
