The Westside of Jacksonville is one of the city’s larger areas. Westside Jacksonville homes for sale include everything from apartments to waterfront mansions, spanning several different lifestyles and budgets. Located west of the St. Johns River and the downtown business district, Jacksonville’s Westside is made up of both highly populated areas and underdeveloped land. Many diverse neighborhoods populate the Westside, including Ortega, Lake Shore, Normandy, Sweetwater, Argyle, Riverside, Cedar Hill, and Confederate Point. The community of Ortega in Westside is one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in the city, and is also where you will find the best view of the Jacksonville skyline. The Westside also includes four small incorporated towns: Baldwin, Marietta, Maxville and Whitehouse. Some Westside Jacksonville real estate listings were built in the early 1900s, so if you're in the market for a vintage home, this is just the community for you.
