With a new year, comes a new opportunity to refresh your space. Whether it is a fresh coat of paint or a remodel, making changes to your home can provide value and a renewed sense of appreciation. Enjoy a round-up of the TOP interior design trends of 2022! 

Vintage Elements

If you have bought anything in the past year and a half, you have likely encountered supply chain shortages and delays. This disruption has caused many to embrace the old, one-of-a-kind pieces that many would overlook. Shopping vintage is not only a sustainable interior design option but adds character to your space. 

Black Accents

The addition of black brings an elevated contrast to your space. To a neutral-based room, black provides edge and depth creating visual interest. This trend was popularized when Urbane Bronze was named the 2021 Sherwin Williams Color of the Year. This timeless, sophisticated warm black pairs beautifully with whites, grays, greens, and amber hues. 

Home Bars

With the resurgence of interest in craft cocktails and beer and increased at-home entertainment, home bars are making a comeback! Elegant bar carts and built-in alcoves provide a dedicated space to showcase your collection of booze and glassware. This adults-only space is a must for those who love to entertain and impress. 

Versatile Spaces

The pandemic has influenced many design trends in 2022. One that likely won’t go away is the need for rooms to serve multiple purposes. Maximizing functionality and practicality has become a top priority as working from home is more common than ever. However, form doesn’t have to be sacrificed for the sake of function. Get creative and research unique ways to have all your needs met in your home. 

Your home is your haven and spicing up your space can make a big difference in the way you love your home.

With its close proximity to both St. Augustine and Jacksonville, World Golf Village is a highly desired and attractive area. Over the past twenty-five years, the community surrounding World Golf Village has rapidly grown with further real estate development. The new WGV Office Park will be a welcomed addition to the area and provide businesses the opportunity to own prime office space. 

The new WGV Office Park site is located at the entrance to The King & Bear Community at the corner of Pacetti Road and Registry Boulevard. “What makes the site perfect for this project is that it is centrally located for all the current and future development in the World Golf Village area,” shares Sam Davidson, Realtor® at Davidson Realty and Vice President of Special Operations for Davidson Development. “The new office park is conveniently located at a signalized intersection and has the added benefit of being adjacent to all the new retail development at the Publix anchored Shoppes at Murabella. The WGV Office Park is also  right across the street from the new Flagler Center so it will be incredibly convenient for medical users.”

With such a perfect location, it is clear that the WGV Office Park is a wonderful investment for business owners especially as this area continues to grow. “The WGV Office Park will allow business owners that have been forced to rent due to the lack of office space in our area the opportunity to own and build equity,” shares Davidson. “With spaces starting at 1,120 square feet and the ability to purchase multiple spaces and combine them, it will allow both investors and companies to tailor their purchases to their budget.”

The project, with five buildings totaling 44,000 square feet, is expected to break ground in November 2021 and is scheduled to be completed in the Spring of 2022. “This project is an exciting opportunity. World Golf Village and all of St. Johns County will experience an incredible amount of growth in the coming years. With attractive communities like SilverLeaf, Trailmark, and Adler Creek adding more homes to the area, larger retailers will come to the area,” continues Davidson. 

If you are interested in owning an office condo in the new WGV Office Park, contact Sam Davidson at (904) 502-2397 or jsdavidson@davidsonrealtyinc.com or Tim Nemethy at (904) 553-6194 or tnemethy@davidsonrealtyinc.com

The Vision of World Golf Village

Posted by: Sherry Davidson in News

Behind anything great, you find a great story. World Golf Village is no exception. In the 1980s, St. Johns County had less than 100,000 residents. It was inevitable that the area would blossom with the right vision and execution. Jim Davidson, President of Davidson Development, was the man for the job. 

Jim could see the pieces of the World Golf Village puzzle come together. “Not only could Jim see the Jacksonville market heading south and knew this was the perfect area between Jacksonville and St. Augustine, but he could see the pine trees becoming the development he envisioned,” shared Davidson Realty President and Jim’s wife, Sherry Davidson. “Jim saw beyond the golf courses, lakes, and homes and saw people walking their dogs and pushing their children in strollers on the sidewalks.” 

Jim was persistent in bringing World Golf Village to life. He met regularly with land planners, engineers, attorney’s and an environmental team to make sure the pieces came together as he planned. Although many along the way didn’t believe, Jim never doubted he could get the job done right. Once the World Golf Village developer financed a new interchange on Interstate 95, the development became extremely attractive to commuters, as World Golf Village was one of only a few options for buyers in St. Johns County who worked in Jacksonville. 

The pieces continued to come together after Jim brought the PGA TOUR and other golf organizations on board to build the World Golf Hall of Fame. From there, Jim assembled various partners for the golf courses, the hotel, and the retail stores to further bring attraction to the area. World Golf Village turned out to be exactly what people were looking for, including the Davidsons. Jim and Sherry Davidson were one of the first homeowners in World Golf Village and still live in World Golf Village to this day. 

While building World Golf Village, the Davidsons worked hard to protect the environment to ensure the community maintained its natural beauty. More than 2,775 acres, nearly half of the project site, was set aside for preservation. These efforts were recognized by the Florida Association of Realtors ®  when the Davidsons received the ENVY award in 2002. The ENVY award honor is given to developments that preserve Florida’s natural quality of life. 

The infrastructure added by World Golf Village paved the way for the development of other communities in the area like The Hutson Companies’ SilverLeaf, which will have 10,700 homesites, 2,650,000 square feet of mixed-use commercial space, and more than 3,500 acres of conservation land. It is clear that World Golf Village blazed the trail. 

The master planned community has prospered over the last 23 years and is regarded as one of the most desired communities on the First Coast. With more than 6,000 homes and more than 15,000 residents, World Golf Village provides a place to live that is picture perfect. Whether you are a golf lover eager to take advantage of the award winning golf courses or a family wanting to give their children the opportunity to attend fantastic public schools or interested in enjoying an active adult community, you have a home in World Golf Village.

World Golf Village has a vibrant history to be proud of and a legacy to look forward to, as it continues to be a highly sought-after area. No one knows World Golf Village better than Davidson Realty. If you are interested in calling World Golf Village home, contact Davidson Realty at (904) 940-5000.

The most successful, competitive and accomplished athletes train with their minds. They can close their eyes and literally picture – and see – how to execute a routine, make a move, lead and score. They are able to imagine themselves in the winner’s circle.

After 20 years of home ownership and raising a family, I recently put my home on the market – thinking surely someone would come along and “see” and “sense” what we experienced over those years.
