Nestled between Haines Road on the west, 46th Avenue North on the north, 34th Avenue North on the south, and 7th Street on the east lies the quiet neighborhood of Allendale. A population of just over 2,300 enjoys this neighborhood, one of St. Petersburg’s older areas with most homes constructed in the 1950s. The area is characterized by mature oaks shading brick streets and is home to some of St. Petersburg’s most unique estate homes.

Developed by Cade B. Allen, these 160 acres were built out in stages. The first 70 homes were built during the real estate boom that preceded World War II. By the end of the 1950s another 180 homes were added, and over the last 50 years or so another 50 or so home sites were developed.

Allendale does not require flood insurance, is not gated, and homeowners may pursue improvements to their hearts’ content as there are no deed restrictions. Architecture styles range from Spanish and Mediterranean to wood frame to Tudor to ranch, in homes priced from under $100,000 to over $700,000.
