Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We LOVE St. Pete!!!! It's such a wonderful city, rich with culture, music, art and nature all that and beautiful weather too! You can't ask for more than St. Pete has to offer. We have lived in the area for over 20 years and have traveled to many great destinations however there's no place on earth we have enjoyed more than St. Petersburg Florida. We are truely blessed to live and work in this amazing area. Being from northern states ourselves originally (Michigan & New Jersey) we know how long and cold winter can be up north. This little bungalow is where we want to retire someday. Unfortunately, it's too soon for us to be able to kick our feet up. That's why we want to share our little corner of heaven, we figure someone may as well enjoy it until we are able to.

Why the Owner Chose Historic Uptown, St Petersburg, Florida, United States of America:
When my husband and daughter and I walked in the door we instantly fell in love with this house. The original wood floors from 1910 and French doors leading out to a covered front porch that sits on one of St Pete's quaint brick streets. It was just perfect! We very much wanted a place close enough to downtown to ride our bikes but also close enough to walk to Cresent Lake, Starbucks, Panera, Carrabas, Outback, and we have so much fun at Practically Picasso...we never imagined we could have it all and a huge back yard as well! This place was more than we were dreaming of so we couldn't pass it up, even though we can't live there yet- it's already home. We are happy to be able to share. :)

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The large backyard in a location this close to town is a very unique find. We love being able to invite everyone to park in the driveway and walk or bike to town during events or concerts. Parking downtown is especially difficult to find and can get expensive. We have this lovely oasis where friends and family can park, go downtown for events and then relax in the backyard and have a cookout. There is ALWAYS something fun going on downtown the tough part is choosing what to attend.
