“After a long day at work, it is very relaxing to drive home through the winding streets that lead to Trails at Bent Creek,” says Linda Semanik of SEDA New Homes, one of Jacksonville’s largest locally owned homebuilders. “The entire community is very conducive to a fun and active lifestyle.”
Residents can spend their days socializing with neighbors at the community pool, or playing with their children at the playground or sports fields located at the amenity center. For golfers, Bent Creek has great practice areas that include a chipping green, putting green and driving range, as well as their challenging 18-hole course.
SEDA New Homes offers an array of floor plans that are between 1,600 sq. ft. – 3,100 sq. ft. and start in the mid $100’s. A number of new home plans are available to visit, including our current model home, the 2,430 sq. ft. Carrollton plan. A new model home, the 2,491 sq. ft. Savannah plan is now under construction and features a full brick exterior. Prices for an over 2,000 sq. ft. 4 bedroom, 2-bath full brick home start in the upper $100’s.
Quality, value, convenience and great schools….these words describe The Hideaway, a SEDA New Homes’ community located just south of A1A on US-17 in Nassau County.
With homes starting in the low $150’s, no money downopportunities and standard features that include architectural shingles, irrigation system, full security system, gourmet kitchens with stainless appliances, solid surface countertops and 42” premium maple cabinetry, homebuyers can feel confident that they are making a smart investment in their future.
“Quality has always been top on our list,” says Linda Semanik of SEDA New Homes, one of Jacksonville’s largest locally owned home builders. “For 30 years, we have been building homes for thousands of First Coast families. Many of our customers have built numerous homes with us and trust us so much that they have referred their families and friends to us.”
SEDA has been recognized for their quality construction throughout the years with numerous gold and silver awards from the Northeast Florida Builders Association Parade of Homes.
“We pride ourselves on offering a superior product to our customers,” says Semanik. “In today’s difficult market, the fact that we are still doing well speaks volumes about our reputation as a sound builder.”
In addition to the quality construction, the community itself offers great value for homebuyers. Residents in The Hideaway will enjoy a picturesque community with two beautiful spring-fed lakes and many private, cul-de-sac streets. The amenity center features a Cabana and pool, where family and friends can gather on a sunny afternoon.
“This new building offers a prime location with luxurious features such as 3 cm granite countertops in the kitchen and baths, tile in all of the wet areas, stainless steel appliances and refrigerator, washer, dryer, screened lanai and window blinds,” says Linda Semanik of SEDA New Homes. “These new units are available on a first come, first serve basis, and are sure to go quickly.”
All of the townhomes will be “Move-In Ready” with no extra costs after closing.
“The townhomes in Georgetown offer flexible layouts and luxurious features,” says Semanik. “The units are spacious with 2,133 square feet and priced from the low $200’s.”
As SEDA New Homes, one of Jacksonville’s largest locally owned home builders, approaches their 30th anniversary in the home building industry, they reflect on what has made the journey the most rewarding.
“We are a family business,” says Linda Semanik, Sales Manager for SEDA New Homes. “I mean that in every sense of the word, from family members, to our employees and subcontractors, to our homebuyers. It is the relationships that we have built along the way that have meant the most to us.”
Back in 1982, John A. “Sandy” and Linda Semanik began with the vision of providing Jacksonville home buyers with the best quality home for their money and the best service, both before and after the sale. During the past 29 years, three generations of the family have worked for the company, from John’s father to the couple’s children.
“Many of our subdivisions and streets are named after family members,” says Linda Semanik. “For example, Flora Parke in Fernandina is named after Sandy’s mother, and we built the community of Arnold Ridge, which is named after Sandy’s father. The community of Sandy Creek in St. Johns County is named after Sandy, and Linda Lake Lane is named after me.”
The Semaniks credit much of their success to their employees, who they say are like family.
“Many of our employees have been with us over 12 years, some of which have been here over 20 years,” says Semanik. “We have been there for one another during the ups and downs of life, and the ups and downs of this unpredictable real estate market.”
SEDA New Homes, Jacksonville’s largest locally owned home builder, has broken ground on their community park at Sandy Creek.
“The homeowners are very excited,” says SEDA sales agent Sydney Blount. “It’s going to be a great place for neighbors to come together and play football or soccer, picnic or even fish in the lake.”
Conveniently located in St. Johns County, Sandy Creek offers homebuyers an opportunity to build the home of their dreams in one of Jacksonville’s ideal settings.
This serene community was designed with nature in mind.
“When we designed this community, we wanted to maintain the natural ambiance of the area,” says John Semanik of SEDA New Homes. “It is a very private neighborhood, with one road leading in and many cul-de-sac streets. Most of the generous-sized lots are nestled among magnificent preservation areas and gorgeous lakes.
For over 29 years, SEDA Construction Company’s “Build on Your Lot” Division has been building their plan on your land. Now, in addition, the company has also been able to purchase prime waterfront home sites at incredible prices to offer homebuyers the opportunity of a lifetime.
The home sites are located in St. Johns Landing Estates, which is an upscale boating community with a private boat ramp that provides direct access to the southern shore of the St. Johns River. Located in Duval County on Reed Island Drive in the Fort Caroline area, St. Johns Landing Estates is less than 10 miles east of downtown Jacksonville with quick access to the Beaches and the Jacksonville International Airport.
This gated community features a recreation center and community pool that is located adjacent to the St. Johns River. Most of the lots are waterfront with scenic views.
In addition to St. Johns Landing Estates, SEDA’s “Build on Your Lot” Division also built the model home at the Jacksonville Ranch Club. This designer home is located on a one acre lot and includes luxurious features such as granite countertops, a gourmet kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, an expansive lanai and much more. This beautifully furnished model, complete with furnishings, appliances and window treatments, is currently available for sale.
“We have homes available for immediate move-in starting from $273,900,” says Linda Semanik of the ‘Build on Your Lot’ Division of SEDA.
Our freedom is not something to be taken for granted, but instead treasured, because as it has been said, “Freedom is not free.”
At SEDA, we honor the brave men and women in uniform whose sacrifice keeps our nation safe and our country free.
As a marine who served during the Vietnam War (’66-’69), I deeply appreciate the dedication that these men and women have for our country. My father was an Air Force P51 fighter pilot who served during WWII, so respect for our military runs deep with me.
We are proud to assist our military when they purchase a SEDA home by offering our $1 Military Move-In Special.
In addition, we also recognize those who serve our community and make our neighborhoods a better place to live. For those service professionals, including police, firefighters, teachers and medical professionals, SEDA offers special incentives when they purchase one of our homes.
I read an interesting quote from an unknown author. It read:
Freedom is a lot like air.
Something for us to think about as we freely come together on this September 11th to remember those who lost their lives on that historic day.
John A. Semanik
Another exciting school year is upon us, and the residents of the SEDA New Homes community of Flora Parke celebrated.
On Saturday, August 27th, SEDA New Homes hosted an “Ice Cream Social” at the Flora Parke model home.
“The kids were so excited,” says SEDA sales agent Tara Hatton of Flora Parke. “And we were excited for them. It’s a great way for the community to come together, and for the children to meet other kids in the neighborhood that may also attend their school.”
