22 Oct Interesting/Unique Neighborhoods: St. Petersburg
When I first start working with someone, I like to learn more about their preferences and lifestyle so that I can find homes in areas that will really compliment them. Each city and neighborhood has it’s own quirks and since buying a home is a long term investment, it’s a really important factor when it comes to making that final decision.
That’s why I wanted to break down some of my favorite neighborhoods in St. Petersburg.
EUCLID – ST. PAUL
This neighborhood was originally developed around an orange grove in the 1920’s. It is less than two miles away from some of the top areas in St. Petersburg – Downtown, Central Ave Business District and Baywalk. It also is the headquarters for the Pinellas County School system and has quick access to all major highways.
Euclid – St. Paul provides the best of both words, the neighborhood feel with city amenities!
Gulfport is an eclectic city that borders the Boca Ciega Bay Aquatic Preserve.
Here’s their motto:
“We’ve been called funky, eclectic, artsy, charming, progressive, welcoming, warm, and yes, even weird. We are a small town, but we have a big heart. It’s easy to make yourself at home here. Visit us and we think you’ll agree.”
Historic Kenwood has a thriving artist community and lively neighborhood events. This is one of the very first suburbs in St. Petersburg with most of the houses dating back in the 1920’s – 1950’s. With revitalization efforts occurring since 1990 – Kenwood has earned a spot on the National Register of Historic Places.
OLD HISTORIC NORTHEAST
The Old Historic Northeast neighborhood is a very quiet residential area on the outskirts of the downtown area. It is sometimes seen as the “best kept secret” in St. Petersburg for year round living.
Snell Isle is an affluent neighborhood in St. Petersburg.
It’s luxurious living houses the Renaissance Vinoy Golf Club and Resort and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Because of it’s location, up to 80% of the homes on Snell Isle are waterfront properties and residents enjoy many parks and outdoor recreational activities.
