"I am thrilled to see the redevelopment and revival of The Gardens just across the street from my longtime home on Wessell Drive. The new owners are well-respected and have a true heart for Gainesville. This in-town neighborhood will certainly be a high-quality addition to Gainesville."

The Commons
A peaceful place at the edge of the woods

Entering The Commons, The Gardens residents’ community area, you might easily feel you’ve found a park in the midst of a forest.

You would not be wrong.

The Commons is framed by old-growth hardwoods and spring-fed streams flowing down from the hillside. At its heart, a 600 square-foot timber-framed pavilion serves as the gathering spot for families to play and fellowship.

At and around the pavilion, you will find grills for cooking, a food preparation area, well-appointed restrooms, a large fireplace, a professional-grade putting green, picnic spots and a swimming pool. Just downhill of the pavilion, a reflection pond provides a welcome refreshment for the deer and small animals that abound.

Your private park – The Commons – will be a source of enjoyment for your family and guests for years to come. With such amazing, ecologically sound beauty, you’ll need to remind yourself you’re literally minutes from downtown.

The Commons features:

  • old-growth hardwoods in a small valley intersected by spring-fed creeks
  • walk-in, infinity-edge swimming pool
  • reflection pond
  • professional grade putting green
  • timber-framed pavilion equipped with bathrooms and granite counters
  • large "Green Egg" grill/smoker
