What is Nocatee FL?

Nocatee is a top 5 nationally ranked fastest growing community in the U.S.  Nocatee FL is it’s own city-village with schools, apartments, office space, parks, pools and more. Even with all the progress that is planned, the developer is leaving over 9,000 acres of beautiful natural preserve, parks, and trails around the various communities. The Nocatee communities and parks are interconnected for walking, biking or golf carts.  Elementary school on site and more to come.

Nocatee will eventually have 15,000 homes, condos and townhomes. Inside Nocatee are many, many communities with different builders, lot sizes, views and closeness to amenities. (Yes how close one of the pools are is something you should be considering).

Nocatee New Homes vs. Exisiting Homes

Construction in Nocatee is ongoing. So the list of neighborhood inside Nocatee will keep growing. And because of the length of time Nocatee FL has been under development you are able to compare resale (existing) homes versus brand new, just built homes. This gives you a choice of the many different communities with different views to weigh against the newest trends in paint, flooring, cabinets and counter tops. In our area, there are not many communities where you can compare brand new homes versus existing. So take advantage of this and you will be able to not only buy a better value but get the perfect home for you.

Phyllis Frankel Realty Group Insider Tip: Remember to add up all the items you will find in an existing home that you don't have in a brand new home (that you will have to add later). Then weigh them against Nocatee builder's incentives like credits for closing cost, design center and more! Then factor inside resale value for the communities' characteristics like nearby amenities, nearness to beach or Nocatee Expressway, lot size and views. Only then can you get a true picture to evaluate the homes and decide the best one for you. Or just ask us. This is what we will be focusing on when showing you Nocatee homes.

Nocatee is in Duval and St. Johns County

The majority of Nocatee is in St. Johns County (Ponte Vedra 32081) but a small portion (around 15%) falls in Duval County (Jacksonville 32081). Located between Jacksonville and St. Augustine in Ponte Vedra FL which is just west of Ponte Vedra Beach (the intracoastal waterway is the dividing line) and just east of St Johns FL (US-1 is the dividing line). 

Nocatee Zip Code

As previously stated, Nocatee is in Ponte Vedra FL but in both Duval and St. Johns County. That being said, Nocatee's zip code is 32081. That is the only zip code we have seen being used. We have seen Duval County Nocatee mail be addressed to Nocatee Jacksonville FL, Nocatee FL and Ponte Vedra FL. But as long as they are using the zip code 32081 then it should be ok. This would apply to the Duval County Nocatee Communities: Brookwood, Cypress Trails, The Palms and The Villas. The schools for these neighborhoods will be Bartram Springs Elementary, Twin Lakes Middle and Atlantic Coast High School.

Phyllis Frankel Realty Group Tip: The main concern is if you are trying to be in the St. Johns County School System then you shouldn't be considering Cypress Trails Nocatee in Duval County. Also all of Nocatee goes to Nease High School not Ponte Vedra High School. So if you want Ponte Vedra High School then you need to look east of the Intracoastal Waterway in Ponte Vedra Beach (Please check next years School zoning to see if this will be changing).

Nocatee Communities Homes For Sale

Nocatee has taken some of its design from the community concept of the village. Each village or community cluster has a style of homes complementary to each other, with a common area for gatherings.

The Original Nocatee Communities are:

  • Austin Park: Jacksonville Traditional, Spanish, Tuscan, Mediterranean, Craftsman style single family homes. Builders include Taylor Morrison for concrete block homes.
  • Coastal Oaks: luxury estate homes, neo-traditional, town homes and single family cottage/village style. This community is exclusively built by Toll Brother homes.
  • Riverwood: designed with the active 55 and onward adult in mind. Patio homes (smaller lots) with yard maintenance included. This community is exclusively built by Del Webb.
  • The Palms: quaint and cozy single-family and town homes, with an emphasis on the natural wetlands and wildlife surrounding the community.
  • Tidewater: the highly anticipated condo community on the edge of Town Center with easy access to the beaches. The young professional or an active couple would have the best of all worlds, as it will also be in close proximity to the new business complex going into the Town Center. This community was exclusively built by Pulte. These are the only Nocatee condos for sale you will find in Ponte Vedra FL. 
  • Willow Cove: Traditional single-family homes with the active family in mind. Near Town Center and the planned water park. Close to the amenities center. Easy access to activities for the whole family. Woodland and lake views. Built by Lennar Homes and David Weekly Homes.

These communities are some of the first communities of Nocatee. So if you want a newer home and don't want the construction happening on your street then you should definitely check out these neighborhoods. You will have the added benefit of buying a home for sale in Nocatee that already has blinds, upgraded flooring, extra shelving, extra landscaping and more. You will know exactly what you are getting instead of waiting for a home to be built.

Two communities that stand out as unique are Coastal Oaks and Riverwood by Del Webb. Coastal Oaks is of of Nocatee's gated community and has some of the highest priced homes in Nocatee. Riverwood is a 55+ Del Webb Community (age restrictive). Please contact us if you would like to find out more about either Nocatee Neighborhood.

2nd Phase Communities in Nocatee:

  • Greenleaf Village: Sister community to Greenleaf Lakes which is similar in design. Located on the western side of Nocatee which is close to the Valley Ridge Academy. Builder in Greenleaf Lakes include Mattamy, Standard Pacific and Providence.
  • Greenleaf Preserve: Small gated community built by ICI homes with Mediterranean theme including tile roofs. Located on the western side of Nocatee which is close to the Valley Ridge Academy school.
  • Kelly Pointe:  Smaller community of 176 homes built by Richmond American, David Weekely and Mattamy Homes. Located on the northside of Nocatee.
  • Lakeside: Key West Style neighborhood on low maintenance lots built by David Weekely, Mattamy Homes & Lennar Homes. Located at the Town Center for walking to shops, stores & amenities.

Nearby Twenty Mile Park has the 2nd pool in Nocatee. The Pointe, The Hammock, The Island and The Vista have some of the largest lots & homes in all of Nocatee. In fact, they define the new "Luxury Homes of Nocatee" with custom builders and lot size.

Phyllis Frankel Realty Group Insider Tip: Nocatee has many parks, playgrounds and amenities for all homeowners in Nocatee. These parks are located all over the community. However, Nocatee has few swimming pools that are in  what would be considered a walkable distance. So in Nocatee you will typically need to drive, bike or take their golf carts to (besides the pools in the 55+ community and townhome community) to get to the pools. The only neighborhoods (besides the 55+ neighborhoods) with a pool directly in them is one neighborhood in Twenty Mile (please note Twenty Mile is huge but I am talking about 1 neighborhood), Cypress Trails which is in Duval County (different school system and higher property taxes) and Coastal Oaks which gated & huge so you still might not be close enough. If you don't mind crossing a main street then you might consider the Nocatee Town Center communities (smaller lots) walking distance to the splash park and maybe Willowcove which is just a tad further.

ICI Homes Nocatee

ICI Builders is a popular custom home builder that has built in Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra Beach and St. Augustine FL for many years. In Nocatee, ICI built Greenleaf Preserve. Currently they can be found in Siena at Town Center with mediterranean, low maintenance homes in the center of Nocatee and The Outlook at Twenty Mile.

Nocatee School Zoning For Students

All Nocatee homeowners are zoned for Nease High School. This will be true until the new high school is built.

The Western Nocatee Communities' elementary and middle school are zoned for the Nocatee School, Valley Ridge Academy. The communities include Austin Park, Greenleaf Preserve, Greenleaf Village, Greenleaf Lake and Willow cove.

The Eastern Nocatee Communities' current elementary and middle school are the Ponte Vedra Beach Ocean Palms Elementary School and Landrum Middle School. This should change for 2018-2019 when a new elementary school in Nocatee will go online. The communities include: Addison Park, Coastal Oaks, Enclave at Town Center, Kelly Pointe, Lakeside at Town Center, Siena at Town Center, Tidewater, The Crossing at Twenty Mile, The Hammock at Twenty Mile, The Island at Tweny Mile, The Outlook at Twenty Mile, The Pointe at Twenty Mile, The Ranch at Twenty Mile, The Vista at Twenty Mile and the Tenty Mile Village.

The Duval County Nocatee Communities: Brookwood, Cypress Trails, The Palms and The Villas schools are Bartram Springs Elementary, Twin Lakes Middle and Atlantic Coast High School.

( Please note school districts are subject to change. And new schools are being built so this information is subject to change and should be verified).

Living in Nocatee Ponte Vedra FL

Living in Nocatee is a dream come true. The abundance of outdoor parks and trails makes spending the day outside one of many choices. Should you go to the pool and swim around the lazy river? Should you call your friend and play a game of tennis, basketball, volleyball, soccer or softball? What about a brisk power walk around the trails? Or give fido some excercise at one of the dog parks? And don't forget a quick work out at fitness center or a couple laps at the exercise pool. Want to be on the water? Take your kayak to launch on the intracoastal. Or upgrade to a jet ski if you want some real speed.

Fitness classes include cardio, tone & core class, noon yoga, flow yoga, barre class, 5:30 sweat class, power pilates & more!

There is literally something for everyone.

But that is not even considering all the planned events that the social coordinator has planned!

In fact, there are Nocatee clubs set up just so you can meet your neighbors and make friends if you are new to the area: 40+ Mom, Basketball Club, Beer Lovers, Bookworms, Business Professionals, Gentlemen's Reading Club, Cycling Group, Mster Swim Club, Motorcycle CClub, Real Housemoms, Surf club, Soccer Club, Teens Club, Tennis Club top Gear Car club, Triathlon Club, Women's Book Club, Ju-Jutsu Club, Knitting Club and Mountain Bike Club.

Nocatee Golf?

There is not a golf course in Nocatee. There is a practice range off of Palm Valley Rd right outside the community. But there are numerous golf courses all 10-20 minutes away. Going east you have the famous Stadium Course at the Sawgrass Players Club plus The Valley Course and the Ponte Vedra Golf and Country Club. You also have Sawgrass Country, Marsh Landing and the golf course at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club. Going west you have the St. Johns Golf & CC, South Hampton Golf Course and Cimmarone Golf Course. And then if you head south you have Palencia Golf & Country Club and the two golf courses at the World Golf Village.

So no you don't have a Nocatee Golf Course. But you have many golf courses right at your finger tips.

And even thought you don't have a golf course, Nocatee is an approved golf cart community. So you will see plenty of golf carts zipping around to the store and amenity centers. After all, it is Florida.

Nocatee Home Builders

The list keeps on growing. Here is a current list of home builders that are building or have built in Nocatee. Please note the home builder may be building in multiple communities in Nocatee.

  • Tollbrother Home Builders
  • Mattamy Homes
  • ICI Homes
  • Dreamfinder Homes
  • Lennar Homes
  • Standard Pacific Homes
  • Pulte Home Builders
  • Providence Home Builders
  • Glen Layton Homes
  • Pineapple Corp
  • Dostie Homes
  • Taylor Morrison Homes
  • Nocatee Del Webb

Nocatee CDD Fees

Nocatee is a CDD fee development. CDD stands for community development district. The fee refers to the bond that was taken out to develop the amenities and the infrastructure along with the maintenance of these items.

Most new home communities in St. Johns County have a CDD fee. The CDD fee in Nocatee is not the same for every community in Nocatee. But every community does have a CDD fee. Typically the homes with the smaller lots have a lower CDD fee. Also, Coastal Oaks at Nocatee has a lower CDD fee since you also have a monthly HOA fee to support the gate.

How long do the CDD Fees last?

The typical CDD bond was for 30 years. So these bonds will be expiring in 2039 or 2040 depending on which series bond your particular home was issued. This can be extended or renegotiated. So for most homeowners in Nocatee they will be paying this for the full time they live in Nocatee. However, please note even if you pay off the bond portion (debt) of the CDD owed you will still have the annual maintenance fee of the CDD to be paid. (This covers maintenance of all the amenities in Nocatee like the parks, splash park, fitness center, etc.) We have seen the maintenance portion of the CDD fee be approximately $500-$700 per year in other communities. So that would be our guess for Nocatee.

Phyllis Frankel Realty Group Insider Tip: There are some homes that have about half or less of the standard Nocatee CDD fee. This is because the builder decides to pay of the bond portion of the CDD fee for the homeowner. These are mostly located in Austin Park with the concrete block homes built by Taylor Morrison. But we have seen others.

Nocatee Florida: School Planning for the Future

A school in the neighborhood? It's not a new idea, but it's still a good one. Neighborhood schools used to be the foundation of the local activities for children and families, and now we are headed back toward that idea again. Nocatee is well aware that children in neighborhoods with a neighborhood school system tend to show improved learning. Children with less disrupted schooling programs flourish.

So with that in mind Nocatee was designed with the elementary, middle and high school all close by. Children can safely walk or bike to and from schools, instead of sitting for hours on a bus. Extracurricular activities are more enjoyable when the family and students are not rushing to make it back and forth from home to work to school all the way across town.

Planned Nocatee Ponte Vedra Building Projects

  • 6 Elementary Schools
  • 2 Middle Schools
  • 1 High School

The other schools currently in planning have the parcels identified, pending ground breaking with the local school district.

Ponte Vedra Nocatee Homes: Planned and Growing Community

Planned communities are not a new concept, but a growing town featuring all of the classic elements of a hometown - yet an eye towards the future - is a great place to call home. 

Home builders have created a wide range of homes in neighborhoods within the "town" to appeal to all lifestyles - family traditional neighborhoods, country club style homes, recreational areas with trails and paths, and beach oriented homes right against the sea and surf.

Don't forget the "urbanite!"  The city center plan calls for not only commercial and business locations, but for homes geared toward those who like to be in the center of things. Condos and town homes have been incorporated into the plan for this community.

The town center plays host to concerts and events for all of the residents from children to seniors. Gracious spaces and planned protection for the natural habitat that the residents become part of make this a town with what it is and what it will be.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) About Nocatee

What is Nocatee?

Nocatee is a master planned community of multiple neighborhoods and multiple parks and amenity areas. There is commercial space, offices and a shopping center all located in Nocatee.

How far is Nocatee from Jacksonville?

Nocatee is located right next to Jacksonville FL. In fact, part of Nocatee is in Duval County which is Jacksonville FL. From Nocatee to Downtown Jacksonville it is about 30 minute drive.

Is Nocatee and Ponte Vedra the same thing?

No. Nocatee is a community located in the city of Ponte Vedra FL. Ponte Vedra FL has a few other communities in it besides Nocatee; although Nocatee does take up most of Ponte Vedra.

Is Ponte Vedra the same place as Ponte Vedra Beach?

No. Ponte Vedra is located west of the intracoastal waterway and is home to Nocatee. Ponte Vedra Beach is located east of the Intracoastal Waterway and sits on the ocean.

What zip code is Nocatee in?


What county is Nocatee located in?

The majority of Nocatee is located in St Johns County but there are parts of Nocatee in Duval county.

Where is Nocatee?

Nocatee is located in the Northeast part of St. Johns County bordered on the western side by U.S. 1 and on the eastern side by the Intracoastal Waterway. Nocatee is bordered on the north by Jacksonville FL.

What's so special about Nocatee?

Short answer: The combination of Location, Amenities, Activities, "Newness" and Price. The location is prized as being in the NE corner of St. Johns County close to the beach and Jacksonville proper (work, shopping, restaurants, etc). Ponte Vedra Beach is the actual beach area but is older and more expensive for the same size of home. The amenities of parks, pools, trails, slides and more combined with the activities of farmer's market, concerts, movie night, and more is rare for our area. So combining all that with a newer, larger home than what you can find in Ponte Vedra Beach or similar newer, larger home with almost similar amenities to the west and you can see why Nocatee is so popular.

Are they still building in Nocatee?

Yes. While no one can tell us the exact date of completion; It does look like it may be completed around 2025 if they don't open more land to be developed. This is a wild guess and can change.

Do I need a Realtor to buy new in Nocatee?

No you don't need a Realtor to buy new construction BUT a Realtor won't cost you anything and you get added benefits. (Ask your builder what the cost of the home will be if you have a Realtor and if you don't. They will be the same. And our brokerage won't charge you the $295 - $495 brokerage fee other brokers do. So no money out of pocket for you).

Besides the additional negotiating power of a Realtor who knows what the builder will typically negotiate which will save you money immediately; a Realtor will tell you which lots, floorplans and extras will give you the best appreciation when you go to sell in the future. Again this doesn't cost you anything. Plus you have someone else to watch the builder and keep things on track. And finally you have someone to tell you the advantages of each neighborhood and each builder. Plus show you around the community and show you any of the newer resales that would be good competition for the builder.

Can I get a new home with a pool in Nocatee?

Yes you can BUT if the home is already started you will need to typically add the pool after closing. So if you are searching for a new home with a pool then they don't exist (except for luxury homes where they are more standard).  And you won't find them on our website or any other. However, if you build from "scratch" then you can typically add a pool to your home.

The 55+ active adult community of Riverwood by Del Webb will have just under 2000 homes.

What is the smallest neighborhood in Nocatee?

Are there gated communities in Nocatee?
