The neighborhood of Otis is located within the city of Jacksonville, Florida.
Otis is reasonably quiet, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamor - however some parts can be quite loud, especially closer to the railway line or Interstate 10. It is very hard to access green spaces since they are distributed sparsely. Despite that, there are a few parks nearby for residents to unwind in.
Roughly 80% of the units in the neighborhood are occupied by home owners whereas the remainder are rented. The predominance of single detached homes in the housing stock of this neighborhood is an important part of its character. The properties in this area are quite new, since roughly 40% of its dwellings were built since the year 2000, while many of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1960s and the 1980s. This part of the city offers mainly four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes.
This area does not contain any high schools or primary schools. With regards to eating, some, but not all, home buyers in Otis will reside within walking distance of the nearest grocery store.
Otis is very car friendly. It is especially convenient to park, and the majority of real estate listings are a reasonably short car ride from the nearest highway, such as Interstate 10. In contrast, Otis is not very well-suited for walking because almost no daily errands can be run without the use of a vehicle.
