Durbin Crossing has earned its reputation as one of the hottest communities in St. Johns County for numerous reasons.  Homeowners surveyed said the three main reasons they chose to live in Durbin Crossing were the A-rated schools, the convenient St. Johns County location and the incredible amenities.  

Durbin Crossing has received widespread recognition as a 2,000-acre master-planned community that offers residents exactly what they have been asking for – great schools, natural beauty, its park system, perfect location and state-of-the-art amenities.
