The Orange Blossom House is a 3-bed, 2-bath Gulfport gem in a quiet, walkable neighborhood one block from the prestigious Stetson University College of Law (housed in a stunning former 1920s hotel). Gulfport’s funky beach and arts district is only 2 miles away, St. Pete Beach, 3 miles, and Treasure Island, 5. You’ll have it all – a quiet, laid-back, family-oriented neighborhood great for long strolls plus easy access to the Gulf Coast’s bustling beach communities. St. Petersburg is right there too, with its many restaurants, antique stores, museums, Tropicana Field, and top-notch medical and educational institutions. The house, built in 1948, was gutted and renovated in 2013. It's decorated with tropical greens, blues and whites, original artwork, and cool tile floors. It has an open floor plan, lots of windows and a lovely sun room overlooking a huge, fenced-in back yard with citrus trees and mature vegetation where children and pets can play safely. Two bedrooms have queen beds and one has two twins. Sofa beds can accommodate two other guests. The house is on an enormous double lot, set back far from the street and neighboring homes. There's even room to park a small boat or camper inside the fence.

About the owner: I was born in Louisiana, grew up in Puerto Rico, went to high school in New Hampshire and attended college in Colorado. I did a stint in the Peace Corps in South Korea and traveled abroad quite a bit before going back to school to earn a master's degree in journalism. I worked as a reporter and editor for about 25 years. In July 2014, I moved to the St. Pete area after spending 20 years in Vermont working and raising a family. I'm having a wonderful time managing my properties in Florida and enjoying the many things this area has to offer.
Why the Owner Chose Gulfport: This neighborhood is terrific. It's beautiful and quiet yet conveniently located for quick access to shopping, restaurants and beaches.
