Snell Isle Waterfront Homes

In the fall of 2005 when I sold a waterfront property listed at $4,250,000 it was a record high sale – keeping in mind of course that custom homes built by their current owners never were "sold" and generally appear on the public records only at the lot price, since the construction is a contract between owner and builder. Buyers always wonder if they’ve bought too high (just as sellers wonder if they’ve bought too low).

Despite a "declining market" the past few years, 5 additional homes have sold for higher prices, two of them selling over $5 Million. One of those two, a historic property, was not a tear down, but was certainly a complete restoration – I think construction crews were working there for 2 years, but oh, what a beauty it is now.

Snell Isle currently has five waterfront homes listed over $4,000,000 with the highest price being $6,900,000 for a 7,000+ sq ft home built in 2007.

Snell Isle has curving streets, mature landscaping, and a wonderful variety of homes, some dating back to the 1920s and some currently under construction. Neighbors walk or jog along the streets before dawn and again at dusk. It’s a peaceful area with character, and yet is just 5-10 minutes from downtown St. Petersburg. Some of the homes have a view of the downtown St Pete skyline.

p.s. in this "declining market" Pinellas County recently had a record sale of a waterfront home at over $10 Million.
