Even regular visitors to Amelia Island, “the Florida beach with a Southern accent”, may never have ventured west to explore the unique charms of Yulee. Located twenty miles inland, along the St. Johns River, the town is certainly no secret to home buyers, who have recognized Yulee, FL real estate as an excellent investment. The average annual appreciation for homes over the last decade has been 9.3 per cent, and the median home cost is $221,200.
Yulee is part of the Jacksonville metropolitan area. It’s in Nassau County, just south of the Georgia state line. Living on Florida’s northernmost Atlantic coast, its residents have easy access to beaches and a wealth of natural attractions. So Yulee, Florida, new homes for sale attract a diverse group of neighbors that includes foodies, nature lovers, adventure-junkies, golfers and others who love the laid back island lifestyle. Being so close to the city, of course, means that anything you may need is just a short drive away.
Your home in Yulee will be just fifteen miles from both the many attractions of Amelia Island and Jacksonville International Airport. With a population of fewer than 30,000 people, it retains a friendly, small-town ambience. The town is home to the Nassau Campus of Florida State College, which offers courses, certificates, and degree programs in various fields and has a 16-acre natural space devoted to outdoor education.
The nearby White Oak Conservation Center is one of the world’s premiere wildlife breeding, research, and training facilities. Situated along the St. Mary’s River and surrounded by 6,800 acres of pine and hardwood forest and wetlands, the Center offers visitors the opportunity to ride in open-air vehicles for up-close views of rhinos, cheetahs, giraffes, okapi and other animals.
Golfers will be drawn to the five famous pro courses just minutes away: Oak Marsh, Long Point at the Amelia Island Club, Golf Club of Amelia Island, the Amelia River Golf Club and Fernandina Beach Golf Club.
