Simon Court Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
One of the older neighborhoods on the edge of downtown Pensacola, Simon Court is an eclectic collection of 14 homes lining one half-block long street of the same name. This tiny enclave of irregularly shaped lots, with its masses of shade trees, offers a taste of laid back, country living.
Some of the homes date back to the early 1950s. Houses range from small bungalows to large ranch homes sprawling on half-acre lots. This is a quiet neighborhood where residents regularly view wildlife from their backyards.
Yet for all the seclusion, Mobile Highway/Highway 90 lies only a few blocks away. Along this roadway and the neighboring County Road 453 are a selection of shops, restaurants, and services. One of the locally owned favorites is Arlene William’s Barbeque, which is famous for its ribs. Another is a combination pizza joint and bar called the Elbow Room, a nostalgic holdover from the 1960s. Nearby malls include the Mixon Antique Mall and Flea Market and Highland Terrace Shopping Center, both to the north. The beaches of Pensacola Bay are roughly two miles south.
The Escambia Christian School sits next to Simon Court, and Oakcrest Elementary and Brownsville Middle Schools are two blocks north. Pensacola High is a bit farther away to the east, and a number of churches are nearby.
