The Courtyards is a great community in northwest Gainesville. It’s made up of two and three bedroom condos – all one story and all with attached garages. The brick exteriors and garden entrances make this a very attractive neighborhood.
One of the best features about this community is it’s location, because this is one of the most ‘Walkable‘ neighborhoods in Gainesville, FL. It sits just behind the corner of NW 23rd Ave/NW 16th Blvd and NW 43rd Street. You’ll find just about everything you need within a 10 minute walk of your front door!
(The Fresh Market, Uppercrust Bakery, Gainesville Health & Fitness Center for Women, beauty salons, clothing, movie rentals, Dorn’s liquors, Publix, banking, and much more are all within 1 to 3 blocks.)
Fees: ~$275/month as of Jan 2009
The condo association takes care of the usual stuff – exterior maintenance, upkeep of the common areas, pest control, a fund for maintaining the private road.
Turnover: Most of the residents really enjoy living here, so it is unusual to see homes for sale in here. Properties usually only come onto the market once or twice a year.
Amenities: The pool and club house are located centrally and are easily accessed. There is guest parking throughout the neighborhood.
