Open studio is historic yet convenient; quaint but modern; private but central
I might not live there anymore, but no way was I going to let this place go. It is too awesome for that. Whether it is the central location, the historic walkable neighborhood, or the modern conveniences that attract you, I hope and expect you'll love it just as much.
Menelaos purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Menelaos chose Riverside
This home was part of the original Riverside neighborhood that sprung up along the St. Johns River in the early 1900s. This house was built in 1922, and was lovingly restored in 2007. Riverside is well known for its diverse mix of architecture and urban parks. Most of its streets are shaded by centuries-old oaks, and its sidewalks are the same hexagon pavers as 100 years ago. The neighborhood is known for the sort of charm and elegance that must evolve over time, yet is also Jacksonville's most diverse.
What makes this Cottage unique
This is the best of both worlds, blending historic charm with modern amenities. This is private upstairs space, an oasis in a stand-alone building in a gated courtyard; yet steps away are the bustling streets of a neighborhood where you can find pretty much whatever you might want. High ceilings and soaring windows make you feel like you are in a tree house; now close the blinds, and you are in a cozy private retreat. Elegant old-world touches like historically accurate mini-hexagon tiles in the bathroom and the craftsman white kitchen cabinets blend seamlessly with black granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and a 50-inch flat screen "smart" TV.

Super great quite place
What a great location and awesome place. Close to everything and all the best modern amenities . Comfy bed, great tv, private getawAy in the heart of everything. If you can back up a car and go up stairs this is the place for you. When I think of a rental this is the one if your ok with takeout or dishes. The price and the quality are par non.stay here you will enjoy it. The noise reviews were there own fault so close your windows and enjoy the silence!
The perfect place for us!
Location was fantastic! My wife is a runner and I bike along. The surrounding neighborhood is beautiful and safe. We headed west on Riverside Ave. and passed some amazing properties. Walkable to King St. district and Avondale neighborhood, both with great shopping and eateries. Walgreens and Publix also walkable for quick necessities. Nearby parks and the riverfront provided scenic views. The coach house is neat and cozy. Our host was responsive and accomodative, responding quickly to our questions. Pleasantly surprised by how much we enjoyed JAX--we will be back!
