Springfield, Jacksonville, FL, real estate is made up largely of single-family homes (SFH), although there are also some small apartment buildings in the area. Much of the architecture of the homes is Prairie-style or Queen Anne, and many of the streets are lined with very large majestic oak trees that provide much-needed shade in the summer. Though many of the neighborhood homes date back to 1939 or earlier, new homes continue to spring up. This 2,600-square-foot, two-story home, for example, was built in 2010 and features three full bedrooms, tongue-and-groove porch ceilings and Brazilian chestnut floors.
Springfield is considered to be a part of the Jacksonville's Historical District being a part of some the oldest communities created in the city.
