Project Spotlight: Stillwater
Written by: Rachel Washington
Stillwater is a thoughtfully designed community for individuals aged 55 and above located in St. Johns, FL. Lennar, the trusted homebuilder, is responsible for constructing the houses in this neighborhood. Situated alongside an impressive 18-hole golf course created by Bobby Weed, the development showcases Next Gen® homes and offers a wide range of amenities tailored to meet the needs of active adults.
Moreover, residents have the advantage of being close to Durbin Park, which provides convenient access to various shopping, dining, and entertainment options, as well as easy access to Jacksonville through Highway 9B and Interstate 95 nearby.
Key Facts About the Project

This exclusive age-restricted community comprises 550 single-family and multifamily duplex units, complemented by an impressive 18-hole golf course and its accompanying amenities, infrastructure, and roadway design. The meticulously planned amenities include a spacious 18,828 square foot clubhouse building, a well-appointed 2,109 square foot aquatics building complete with a pool, a convenient 600 square foot driving range, concession, and restroom facility with dedicated driving range bays, and a 9,098 square foot maintenance facility.

These amenities encompass a sprawling 2.5-acre driving range, two full-size tennis courts, two full-size pickleball courts, a bocce ball court, and an expansive special event lawn space. The scope of our team’s involvement extended beyond design, as we took charge of coordinating the intricate permitting process with various entities, including St. Johns County, St. Johns Water Management District), JEA, Florida Department of Environmental Protection, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
Moreover, Matthews | DCCM assumes the responsibility of certifying the completed construction. Senior Construction Inspector, Mike Silverstein, is the lead for this phase of the project.
