Old Northeast Neighborhood Market Update

Old Northeast Map

The Old Northeast remains one of the most popular neighborhoods in St. Petersburg. Its charming homes, from small bungalows to grand showplaces, appeal to many who don’t care for cookie-cutter environments. Most of the neighborhood enjoys shady tree-lined streets, many of them paved in old brick, hexagon sidewalks, lovely landscaping and creative architectural styles. With the downtown waterfront park system running adjacent, it’s a place that invites its residents to get out and enjoy outdoor activities. Its proximity to downtown, bustling with entertainment and cultural activities, and its easy access to the interstate system, make it even more attractive.

Officially, the Old Northeast runs from 5th Avenue N to 30th Avenue N and from 4th Street east to the water. There are “purists” who insist that it runs only from 1st Street to the water, and stops at 22nd Ave N, often referred to as “Historic Old Northeast.” The area from 1st Street east to Coffee Pot Bayou and from 22nd Avenue to 30th Avenue has its own designation as Historic Granada Terrace, and the grid from 22nd Avenue to 30th Avenue between 1st and 4th Streets is often completely disregarded in the conversation.

Kenwood

Notes from Rob:

Kenwood Bungalow Aug 09

Had my 11th sale of the year last week.  I love it when the right people get the right house.  Just called my clients to see what they think 5 days after closing…the response I received to my question of how do you like the house now:  “wonderful.”  This house just fits this couple, I can see them spending evening after evening on the front porch, waving to the neighbors as they walk by.

It was also nice to continue our Eckerd College connections.  With 50% of our team being Eckerd College graduates, we have a long history of working with others with Eckerd connections.  This was the second home I have sold to an Eckerd professor and I must admit, they seem to be very nice people (hard to admit for an MTSU graduate).

For those looking for a bungalow style house, the Kenwood neighborhood has a lot of choices.
