More About St Petersburg Waterfront Homes
St Petersburg offers a wide assortment of waterfront homes. The waterfront homes on the eastern coast of St Petersburg offer direct access to Tampa Bay. Homes on the St Pete western coast offer access to the Intracoastal Waterway and the Gulf of Mexico. Imagine stepping onto your boat in your own backyard and enjoying access to some of Florida’s best fishing and marine activities!
A “typical” St Petersburg waterfront home is a 3 bedroom 3 bath layout with a little over 2,000 sq ft of living space. But options vary greatly from modest 2 bedroom homes with about 1,500 sq ft to 5+ bedroom homes with over 4,000 sq ft.
About two-thirds of these waterfront homes also have private pools. Enjoy the Gulf breezes as you gather at your poolside retreat and gaze out at your water views.
