February 22nd, 2012 categories: Old Northeast
The Old Northeast in St Petersburg Florida has been named to the Best Old House Neighborhoods 2012: South by This Old Home. It is the only Florida neighborhood on the list of fifteen.
This Old Home is correct in pointing out the many benefits of the neighborhood:
- Eclectic mix of styles: Craftsman, Colonial, Mediterranean, Italian
- Tree lined streets, brick streets (and hexagonal block sidewalks that they didn’t mention)
- Annual events such as Easter Egg Hunts and Halloween festivities (and flags changing with the seasons)
- Waterfront parks
- Nearby restaurants, shops, museums, art and cultural events
It ranked among the best in various categories: waterfront, bungalows and cottages, South, family friendly, gardening, recreation and parks, lots to do, American Heritage and Editors’ Picks.
This Old Home was a bit off, though in saying neighborhood prices ranged from $90,000 to $400,000. The multiple listing shows single family homes ranging from $146,500 to $1,495,000.
