Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

Why the Owner Chose St. Petersburg:
My husband was born and raised here and I am a long time resident. We enjoy the water and all the things there are to do year round. It is a great vacation spot.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We enjoy the back yard! The pool has a relaxing water feature that sounds like a babbling brook. We also like the way the house sits on the property because in the winter we have blockage of the cool winds after a cold front and we can sit by the pool and be very comfortable. We enjoy our morning coffee and many of our meals outside.It is just so relaxing! Our location is also a plus. We are very close to beautiful beaches and downtown St. Petersburg which has a lovely waterfront area with many fine restaurants, art galleries, and museums. The small town of Gulfport which is only 5 minutes away has a quaint downtown area also with some very good restaurants and the historic Gulfport Casino has dances with free lessons. This area offers so much and there is always many events going on.
