Publisher's Pick: Floorplan


Nocatee, one of the Top 10 bestselling communities in the U.S., gets a lot of attention for its extraordinary natural beauty, its resort-style amenities and its burgeoning retail and commercial areas.

But the homes are pretty special, too. In one of Nocatee’s new neighborhoods, Greenleaf Village at Nocatee, three major builders — David Weekley Homes, Providence Homes and Standard Pacific Homes —- are giving buyers plenty of exciting choices.
One notable offering is the Belmonte by David Weekley Homes, part of the company’s popular Classic Series.

Weekly, which has been in the Northeast Florida market for 15 years, is known for its timeless designs, energy efficiency and custom-home quality. And the one-story Belmonte, in many ways, represents what the company is all about.

Ranging in size from 2,638 to 2,667 square feet, it’s spacious but not overwhelming. It has three to four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a three-car garage. And it’s packed with stylish finishes and fine architectural detailing.

The Belmonte boasts a large open area that encompasses an island kitchen, breakfast area and family room. A formal dining room is adjacent to the kitchen.

At one corner of the home sits an owner’s retreat with a luxurious master bathroom, while the other corner is anchored by a cozy study that opens onto a porch. The elegant elevation is highlighted by an arched entryway and an intriguing, multi-level roofline.

It’s one of those quietly understated designs that will look as fresh a decade from now as it does today.

The Belmonte, like all Weekley homes in Jacksonville, is built to the rigorous requirements of the Environments For Living program, which emphasizes energy-efficiency, indoor environmental quality and durability. In fact, Weekley homes built today are 35 percent more energy efficient than those built in 2006.

The Belmonte is priced starting at $360,990. Best of all, buyers will enjoy access to all of Nocatee’s amenities — like the Splash Water Park, Nocatee Fitness Club, the Trails for Tails Dog Park, and the Nocatee Preserve — as well as 10-acre Greenleaf Park with ball fields, picnic areas and its own dog park.
