Mentone is located south on Archer Road just minutes SW of Shands, the VA Hospital, and UF.
It is an ideal location if you work long hours and need a beautiful quiet place to live. Mentone has been around long enough for the trees and landscaping to mature, so the homes are nestled in natural Gainesville Flora and Fauna, just what many locals prefer.
There is a nice club house / pool area, sidewalks, and green spaces in the neighborhood. Nearby there are great restaurants , retail shopping, and grocery stores.
