Whether you are looking for a waterfront home or condo, Mediterranean revival home from the 1920s, Florida ranch, Craftsman-style, or contemporary, in a gated community or on a tree-lined street, St. Petersburg has an option to fit every lifestyle.
In a three-part series I will give a thumbnail sketch of some of our most popular neighborhoods.
- Venetian Isle, developed in the late 1960s and 70s, is an upscale, deed-restricted neighborhood of 518 homes reachable by bridge. It has deep-water canals to accommodate powerboats or sailboats of any size.
- Snell Isle was developed during the 1920s. It is known for its waterfront mansions along Brightwaters Boulevard and unique statues of panthers and lions that stand guard on many street corners. Snell Isle is home to the Renaissance Vinoy Golf Club and the St. Petersburg Woman’s Club.
- The history of Jungle Terrace dates back to Native Americans who once had a thriving village along the banks of the Boca Ciega Bay. It features many waterfront mansions, as well a wide variety of homes built from the 1920s up to the current day. A portion of the Pinellas Trail and the Jungle Prada boat ramp are also located in this unique neighborhood.
- Often described as having a small New England town feel, this charming neighborhood offers a range of homes built from the 1920s to the 1950s.
- The Crescent Lake neighborhood wraps itself around the 52-acre Crescent Lake Park, which offers lighted tennis courts, a dog park, playground and basketball half court. It is a great place for families and features Art Deco, Tudor, Prairie and Mediterranean Revival style homes.
