Venetian Isles, located on Tampa Bay in northeast St. Petersburg, is a well-established deed restricted community of just over 500 single homes ranging in size from three to five bedrooms with corresponding prices of the mid $400,000s to over $2 million. The non-gated community rests on manmade finger islands reached by bridges via Overlook Drive, Grand Canal Boulevard, and Mermaid Point and bordered by the waterway to Weedon Island to the north, Shore Acres on the west, and Tampa Bay on the east and south.
Since Venetian Isles is deed restricted the homes share similarities including minimum sized living areas, concrete block construction, tile roofs, and sodded lawns. All homes sit on prime lots located directly on deep water canals, making the neighborhood ideal for aficionados of power boats and sail boats of all sizes. Flood insurance is required for all homes.
The first homes were sold in 1967, with almost all lots accounted for via private ownership by 1975. But the community’s homes are not dated; because of rapidly increasing property values in the 1970s and 1980s most of the homes have been remodeled, many with Mediterranean style architecture. It’s easy to see how Venetian Isles appeals to its diverse population, which includes the young and the old, professionals, retirees, young families, business owners, and military personnel.
