Nob Hill Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Within the historic port city of Pensacola, Florida, the elegant new homes of Nob Hill sit on a quiet cul-de-sac surrounded by towering pines. Glimpses of Escambia Bay, seen through the trees, make this a highly desirable neighborhood. The hilly terrain is quite uncommon in Florida, but the bluffs here are some of the highest in the state. Nob Hill is located along the west side of the Scenic Highway, with access by Scenic Court. This sunny Escambia County community lies in zip code 32540.
Within two miles are a number of parks. Some, such as Baywood and Belvedere, are well-suited for walking or jogging. Others, such as Lavallet Park, have picnic and playground facilities. The larger Hitzman-Optimist Park offers athletic fields and a YMCA, and Bay Bluffs Park provides residents with beach access.
Facilities such as Scenic Hills Country Club, Pensacola Country Club and Pensacola Yacht Club provide premier recreation in luxury settings.
The Nob Hill area is quite convenient to several colleges and universities. The largest is the University of West Florida, approximately six miles away. UWF serves more than 12,000 undergraduate and graduate students, and provides many cultural and athletic events for the community. UWF is involved in preservation of local sites, including projects such as the Colonial Archaeological Trail.
Pensacola is proud to be one of the oldest cities in the US settled by Europeans, and dates to the early 1500s. It’s little wonder that the city has amazing historic sites, all telling a chapter in that long history. Many of these sites are located along the Gulf, with four historic forts and the Pensacola Lighthouse. Other sites, such as the now-quiet canons of the Revolutionary war, can be found in the downtown district. The historic district is also the cultural center. The Pensacola Symphony performs at Saenger Theatre, and the Pensacola Museum of Art is nearby.
