New Master Planned Community in Yulee, Florida Boasts a Variety of Home Builders and a Pastoral Quality
Outside of Jacksonville in northeastern Florida, Yulee is the site of Lumber Creek, a new and growing planned community with a variety of home builders, including Adams Homes, Maronda Homes and LGI Homes.
The majority of homes here are single story with two to two and a half baths and 1,400 square feet to 3,185 square feet. Interior features include open living areas, crown moulding, trey ceilings and granite countertops. Each home has an attached garage that faces the street. Exteriors are primarily brick and vinyl. This is still a rural area giving the community somewhat of a pastoral quality. Many homes back to woods or open space.
Prices start in the low-$200,000s. Please check with a Realtor to verify this price as it may change.
Amenities are still growing but so far include walking paths and a clubhouse with a swimming pool. The primary selling point of this community is its proximity to Amelia Island.

Named Pascua Florida by Juan Ponce De Leon, the Sunshine State did not enter the Union until March 3, 1845. Balmy mild winters began attracting snowbirds to the state in the late 19th century. Retirees continue to flock to the state. It's not hard to see why tourism has become the leading industry.
International trade and citrus are also major contributors to the state's economy. Eighty percent of the nation's oranges and grapefruits are grown here, and 40 percent of all U.S. exports to Latin America flow through Florida.
Florida's landscape includes uplands and coastal plains. It contains more than 11,000 miles of waterways and about 4,500 islands spread across 10 acres.
The state has 1,250 golf courses, more than any other state in the Union. The 47 mile Pinellas Trail is the longest urban trail on the east coast. Orlando theme parks attract more visitors than any other theme parks in the U.S. The only place in the world where alligators and crocodiles co-exist is in National Everglades Park.
Florida, particularly the Keys and the Gulf Coast, were struck by Category 4 Hurricane Irma in early September, 2017. Towns will rebuild, perhaps this time with climate change in mind, making them safer and better equipped to handle major hurricanes going forward.
