Del Rio Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Del Rio neighborhood of Jacksonville, Florida is located about a half hour south of downtown Jacksonville. This community is bound by Old St Augustine Road on the north, Hood Landing Road to the west, and the Julington-Durbin Peninsula on the south and east. The appeal of Del Rio is the country style living and breath-taking views, while still being conveniently located to the city. Del Rio has easy access to I-95, I-295 and 9A.
The Julington-Durbin Peninsula is formed at the joining of the Julington and Durbin Creeks. The Jurlington-Durbin Preserve is located on the peninsula and provides several natural habitats for Florida wildlife and vegetation to thrive. There are many marked, unpaved trails here for hiking, biking, and horse-back riding, as well as nine miles of shoreline. The scenic views this preserve offers are unmatched. Residents as well as visitors to the area will fortunately be able to enjoy the beauty of this land and wildlife, for years to come.
Many properties located in the southern Del Rio area offer waterfront settings and stunning nature preserve views. Also, a plus here for homeowners is that increased acreage is available with many homes, compared to the greater Jacksonville area. This offers additional backyard space for family BBQs, campfires or boat storage. Houses here are primarily ranch-style, built in the 1970s. They range in price from the mid $100Ks to upwards of half a million dollars, depending on the land.
