Is this the community connected to New Kings Road by Richardson?
And you are right, I was unaware of the history of this neighborhood. Thanks for sharing.

No but its pretty close. The neighborhood off Richardson is the site of the former Lincoln Golf and Country Club.

Ah, I think I found it - "Kinnon Drive" seems to be a good clue - but it is east of New Kings.
Very nice neighborhood.

These streets and houses look more appealing than most I have seen from the same era on the Southside or off Roosevelt.  Thanks for sharing. I checked this out on Google maps and street view (and Charles is right, it is east) and the greater area looks similar.  Did the developer just do one street or much more?

I note that there is some nice green spaces at the end of the street and all the lots in the area are nice sized with well kept houses.  It is far and away better than the cookie cutter, postage stamp sized lots builders are turning out today. 

Not pushing for "gentrification" but if values are artificially low, there has to be a day coming when that will change.  No one is building this nice today so there is a limited supply for those wanting distinctive houses on nice lots in a well kept area.

If there is an area homeowners association maybe they can do more to promote how nice the area is.  How many houses make up this development?

Many truly Appealing Neighborhoods, Areas, Regions rarely conduct Promotional Efforts.
I checked this area out.
Ya. I remember when mandarin and Orange Park was the New Thing.and Andy Johnson’s family farm. Early Murray Hill.
Five or ten miles away far more interesting.
Twenty, fifty and more miles away even better.
