WHY ITWORKED: Historically correct new homes in a revitalized, historic neighborhood is a combination that can't be beat. Five Craftsman-style home plans offer period charm as well as updated amenities.
SRG made its name in Atlanta with infill construction. It's continuing that work with 150 vacant lots in Jacksonville's Historic Springfield neighborhood.
Exterior details on the 1,974-square-foot Saxelbye model (shown) include a second-story front porch, vintage architectural trim, and wood windows.
Features inside the Saxelbye include extensive crown molding, 10-foot ceilings, and recessed lighting.
All five models meet Florida's hurricane wind code and energy code requirements.
A detached, 576-square-foot, two-car garage is available with space suitable for a furnished apartment or office on the second floor.
