St. Petersburg Florida Real Estate Information

St Petersburg Florida  real estate and view at the Pier

News:

When you think of Florida, images of palm trees, waterfront property, and sail boats come to mind. St. Petersburg, Florida real estate represents the consummate Florida vacation retreat and home owners paradise. Also known as the "Sunshine City", St. petersburg real estate traces its inception to land grants, Florida citrus, and tourism. In fact the first commercial airline began in the waters of Tampa Bay and the St. Pete coastline. Tourism has always been tied to the city lifeblood.

Much of the surviving St. Petersburg real estate traces to around 1920 or later. Classic American St. Petersburg craftsman bungalows can be found everywhere along with Art Deco designs, faux Mediterranean, classic block, and a smattering of newer designs. Take a trip in most any St. Petersburg neighborhood and you will find a bungalow or two mixed with new styles. In case you didn't know, craftsman bunglaows are often built from home kits or plans bought from places like, get this, Sears. Local builders and artists would then construct the home with additional local materials.

Old Northeast and Old Southeast neighborhoods of St Petersburg are flush with 1920's architecture and fanciful Mediterranean inspired architecture. A good number of well-to-do northerners built their winter homes here. If you are looking for the smaller 1920's style homes then you absolutely must drive through the Historic Kenwood neighborhood. It is said that Historic Kenwood represents the highest concentration of historic bungalows in the entire United States.

If pre 1940's St. Petersburg real estate is not your style then you may be interested in the countless other options St. Pete offers. Many of the area's waterfront locations offer a tremendous selection of Condominiums, town homes, and living communities. Downtown St. Petersburg has crisp and modern condo options like Signature Place (modern), 475 (Tim Clemmons "green" and modern), Parkshore Plaza (neo Mediterranean inspired), and Overvue just to name a few options.

Then there are island communities such as Isla Del Sol (St. Petersburg), Treasure Island, Tierra Verde, and St. Pete beach which have contemporary to condos to ranch to French revival hidden on the island coves.
