Mandarin FL Real Estate

Mandarin is a neighborhood located in the southernmost portion of Jacksonville, in Duval County, Florida. It is located on the eastern bank of the St. Johns River, across from Orange Park.

Mandarin is named after the Mandarin orange. Once called “a tropical paradise” by author Harriett Beecher Stowe, the quaint area of Mandarin is marked by its history, ancient oak trees draped with Spanish moss, beautiful parks, marinas and more water views than any other area in Jacksonville.

In the 1800s, Mandarin was a small farming village that shipped oranges, grapefruit, lemons and other fruits and vegetables to Jacksonville and points north on the steamships that traveled the St. Johns River. Mandarin, FL.

In 1867 the famous author of Uncle Tom's Cabin, Harriet Beecher Stowe bought a cottage here. For the next seventeen winters, she welcomed tourists debarking from the steamers making their way down the St. Johns River and charged them 75 cents each to meet her and admire her surroundings. Stowe, although best known for her novel Uncle Tom's Cabin about the cruelty of slavery, also wrote about Florida .

In 1968, the city of Jacksonville and most of Duval County formed a consolidated municipal unit. As part of this process, Mandarin ceased to exist as a political entity, and became part of the City of Jacksonville. While Mandarin now is just a small section of the City of Jacksonville, its natural beauty, parks and historic buildings draw visitors from around the world. Just a short drive south of Jacksonville’s city center, the community is bordered by Beauclerc to the north, Julington Creek to the south and St. John’s River to the west. 

Today, Mandarin is an upscale suburban community with beautiful tree lined neighborhoods, large riverfront estates, and a family oriented quality of life. Mandarin is about the active lifestyle, with great schools, abundant recreational activities, and shopping of every kind. Mandarin is a wonderful place to live and experience everything Florida has to offer in beautiful, historic surroundings!

There are many wonderful homes in this area, but you need a local market expert to help you. Watson Realty Corp is a locally owned company with over 50 years experience selling homes in the area.
