Del Webb Wildlight is a new 55+ community being developed in Northeast Florida, about 25 minutes north of Jacksonville.
Because this is a brand-new community, information about it is still trickling out.
Here's what we know so far.
- Del Webb Wildlight will have a total of 660 single-family homes and villas
- Prices are expected to start in the $300k's
- It will be gated, and there will be a 12,000 to 15,000 sq. ft. amenity center/clubhouse just for Del Webb Wildlight residents
This video is a great overview of the Wildlight/Del Webb partnership, and what's to come:
As I mentioned and as you saw in the video above, Del Webb Wildlight is a roughly 25 minute drive to Jacksonville, but it is also only about 20 minutes from the beaches of Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach.
Located just south of the Florida-Georgia line, you are also less than 2 hours from Savannah. An additional 20 minutes will get you to Hilton Head Island. Atlanta is about 5 hours away, which makes that “do I drive or do I fly” decision a tough one! If you do decide to fly though, the Jacksonville International Airport is only about 15 minutes from the community.
Locally, things like grocery stores, restaurants, and shopping are all well within reach.
There's a Publix 2 minutes from the community. Aldi and Target are 10 minutes away. Fernandina Beach has a weekly Farmer's Market if you're into that sort of thing.
Also, as seen in the video above, there's a UF Health Wildlight Urgent Care Center:
The centerpiece of just about any Del Webb community is their amenity centers, and here at Del Webb Wildlight that will be no different.
This video provides us a good overview of what to expect:
Amenities will include:
- resort-style and lap pools
- fitness center
- tennis and pickleball courts
- a community garden
- an event lawn with a stage for live music and parking for food trucks
- a dog park
- 10 miles of walking trails
- …and more!
If you've seen the homes at one Del Webb here in Florida, you've pretty much seen them all. I don't mean that in a bad way at all, but it's just a fact that for the most part at least, they build the same floorplans across their different communities.
Over the years they've discovered what works and what buyers are interested in. No need to “reinvent the wheel” from community to community.
However, they have said that at Del Webb Wildlight they'll be offering variety of “Florida Low Country” floorplans with welcoming front porches, so I'm definitely intrigued and interested to see what those look like when they are released. They are said to be between 1,343 to 3,339 square feet in size and start in the $300k's.
Here's what the first phase of 366 lots will look like:
