3 min read

Brick was the name of the game in December as a number of traditionally styled older homes were among the top-10 home sales for the month.

Taking the lead was a beautifully remodeled Colonial-style mansion at 3338 Sunnyside Drive in the San Marco neighborhood of Jacksonville. Sold for $4.8 million on Dec. 12, the nearly 8,000-square-foot home on the St. Johns River boasts an English rose garden, imported Italian steel doors, custom molding, a smart home system, whole house generator and a saltwater pool with spa, among other high-end details.

In 2016 its elegant interiors were also featured in Southern Home magazine.

The following are the top-10 single-family home sales recorded from Dec. 1-Dec. 31, 2022, according to the Duval County Property Appraiser’s Office.
