The Pink Streets is a neighborhood at the southernmost tip of St Petersburg and Pinellas County. Its name comes from the pink concrete streets throughout the neighborhood since the 1920s (no, it’s not bubble gum pink, it’s actually a muted pink that blends well with the landscaping). A quiet neighborhood with winding streets, late in the day you find people walking, jogging and biking through the area, the strolling interrupted by chats with passing neighbors. The main entry road is divided by a landscaped median. There are a few waterfront homes and others with a view of open Tampa Bay and the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. A large grassy waterfront park is a popular spot for residents. The neighborhood is south of Pinellas Point Drive, west of 9th St and east of I-275, about 15 minutes from downtown St Petersburg and 5-10 minutes from I-275. There are a number of architectural styles in the Pink Streets, which blend well because of the lush landscaping. Homes typically range from the $300,000s to $3,000,000.
We see so many sign riders advertising misery – Short Sale, Foreclosure, Price Reduction, Must Sell – we thought we’d set this house apart. We had sign riders made up saying WEDDING BELLS. This wonderful 2 story Colonial home in the desirable Pink Streets of St. Petersburg is priced to sell at $575,000 (we listed it Thursday afternoon and held it open yesterday, with 22 groups of visitors, including three good prospects).
“What does WEDDING BELLS mean?” asked several guests. It means that this house is being sold because the owner is getting married. She’s selling her house; he’s selling his house; and they’re buying a new property together. It’s been a happy house, and it’s selling for a happy reason. That’s good news in the current market. More than one visitor said, “He must be quite a guy for her to give up this house!”
Happy to Report that this home has SOLD and the wedding took place!
