Snell Isle

Beautiful Snell Isle in St. Petersburg Florida

The Historic Snell Isle Bridge
Linking Snell Isle with the Old Northeast

Snell Isle is a tranquil residential community located near downtown St. Petersburg.  Snell Isle is known for classic and luxury waterfront homes nestled amid tree-lined streets and lush tropical landscaping.  Many of its upscale properties overlook expansive views of Tampa Bay, the downtown skyline and parks. Other properties back on to peaceful bayous and intricate waterways popular with manatees and dolphins.

When you are surrounded by the peace of this waterfront community, it’s easy to forget that downtown’s parks, entertainment, and hotels, Beach Drive’s restaurants, the major shopping districts, and access to I-275, are just a few minutes away.

Upon crossing the Snell Isle Bridge from Coffee Pot Boulevard NE, you immediately notice the distinctive aesthetic that makes Snell Isle so attractive. To the left: the ornate, pastel pink Snell Isle Women’s Club. Further along, the Snell Isle Park Plaza – a beautifully restored park with a fountain, gazebo, statues, and inviting walkways alongside palms and shrubbery. Across the street, the immaculate Renaissance Vinoy Resort—listed on the Register of Historic Places—makes for a majestic focal point, complete with a golf course, country club and swimming pool. It all speaks to the luxury and dedication to upkeep that so defines the neighborhood. Deeper into Snell Isle, you will find two churches, a marina, two excellent schools, and a convenient shopping center.

The isle extends to the Shore Acres bridge on the east side, and up to Locust St. NE and 34th Ave. NE on the west. It encompasses Eden Isle and the Snell Isle Estates. Each area contains high-end homes with beautiful landscaping, and many with access to docks and waterfront.

Design & Architecture

Established in 1925, the area boasts a number of original, carefully-maintained Spanish- and European-style homes for sale.  Also found on Snell Isle are an array of luxury estates, that replaced the original two-bedroom retirement homes. Each has unique character and exceptional design – from Mediterranean-inspired mansions, to modern ranches, to gated waterfront mini-estates, to award-winning “green” contemporary properties. Many of the houses are white, with a number of coral homes available also.  For the buyer interested in a custom-built home, there are still plots with tremendous potential for you to create your dream space.

St. Petersburg’s Historic Neighborhood

Until the 1920′s, Snell Isle was a muddy mass of sand and mangroves, most of which fell below high tide levels.  C. Perry Snell purchased his first acreage in 1911, opening the golf club in 1920, and dredging additional lands to sell lots in 1925. On what is now known as Brightwaters Boulevard, Snell constructed about eight residences inspired by classic European architecture. At a cost of more than $1million, he brought statues, tiles, and ornaments from Europe, and adorned his Snell Isle properties for sale with accoutrements than still can be found today.

Snell gifted a parcel of land, thought of as a jungle at the time, and only accessible by a shaky old bridge, to the Women’s Club. Hence the new bridge over Coffee Pot Bayou was built, and opened on Christmas Day, 1931. As Snell Isle develops over time, there is a keen desire for the style and tone of the neighborhood to endure. Anchored by the historical buildings and plaza, Snell Isle will retain its central character as time goes on.

An Engaged Community

Highly active is The Snell Isle Property Owners Association – a nonprofit corporation for the neighborhood’s maintenance, improvement, and way of life. The SIPOA received three Neighborhood Partnership Grants which were used to restore and refurbish Shore Acres Bridge Park, the Snell Isle Bridge, and the statuary on Snell Isle Blvd.

Also deeply engaged are the local Crime Watch organization and code enforcement volunteers, who all seek to build upon the community spirit and awareness.

Snell Isle homes for sale range from the $200′s to $10 million +.
