St. Petersburg is a large coastal city with many waterfront communities that touch the ocean, inlets and bays. Along with its historic nautical appeal, its waterfront communities are the ideal location to capture great waterway vistas, stunning sunsets and sunrises and to enjoy waterfront activities like boating, fishing and jet skiing.
The Distinguished Snell Isle
Snell Isle is a distinguished neighborhood with an abundance of lux properties in addition to waterfront views and boat docks. The neighborhood is picture-perfect with tree lined streets, well-kept lawns, classic estates and large estates. The recently restored Snell Isle Park Plaza is a chief point of attraction with sculpted statues and picturesque walkways. During the winter, the park is decorated with extensive holiday lights and decorated trees. Snell Isle is also conveniently located and just a five-minute drive from the downtown area.
The isle is named after C. Perry Snell, who purchased the area in 1911. The architecture of many of the homes in Snell Isle combine elements of Spanish and European design. Many of the 1920s homes were just two bedroom but have since been remodeled and enlarged. Today, Snell Isle is a unique mix of European elements and traditional Florida waterfront distinction.
Venetian Isles is a Boater’s Paradise
Venetian Isles is a waterfront neighborhood in northeast St. Petersburg with deep canals that run throughout the area. Because of the many homes with dock access to the waterways, it is ideal for power boat and sail boat owners. The isles itself are built on a series of manmade islands and is accessed via three bridges, Grand Canal Boulevard, Overlook Drive and Mermaid Point. It is an upscale neighborhood, consisting of both young and old professionals. Like Snell Isle, Venetian Isles is a desirable location for those who work in both St. Pete and Tampa.
Nestled in northeast St. Petersburg, Riviera Bay is home to traditional Florida ranches and larger waterfront homes. It’s a quiet area with a hometown feel, and neighbors are quick to introduce themselves. Because of its many three-bedroom plus homes with additional room for an office, it’s a popular area for growing families. The beautiful Weedon Island Nature Preserve also draws many residents to Riviera Bay. This preserve stretches over 3,500 acres and is an ecological treasure within an urban setting. Residents can fish, kayak, walk the trails and bird watch. The Weedon Island Preserve Cultural and Nature Historic Center is located at the preserve and offers workshops, guided hikes and exhibits.
