If you are in a New York state of mind but reside in the sunshine state, the Brownstones of St. Petersburg offer an appealing alternative designed for buyers in search of a unique housing option.
“Being from New York myself, I know there are a lot of people who live here, who are originally from New York and Boston, so I figured why not bring brownstones to St. Pete,” says Steve Gianfilippo, owner and founder of the Brownstone of St. Petersburg
In addition to 4,000-square-feet of living space, homeowners can also enjoy a detached garage with an apartment, which allows owners the option to rent out space if they would like.
“The real selling point is the apartment over the garage to rent out if buyers wish, this is an option you won’t find in a condo community,” Gianfilppo says. “On top of that, you don’t have the exorbitant condo fees and assessments that come with living in a condo building downtown. Providing that option for people really differentiates us from the other properties being built in the area.”
The main buildings of the brownstones are four-stories, each level approximately 800 square feet, and each unit has its own elevator. The properties are one block from walkable Beach Drive's restaurants, museums and shops.
“Being in downtown, and so close to Beach Drive, buyers will really get to experience the urban lifestyle,” Gianfilppo says.
Gianfilppo is very familiar with the area, having his hands on various projects in and around downtown St. Petersburg, including Cordova Inn
and Station House restaurant
as well as the Barefoot Beach Hotel
in Madiera Beach.
The brownstones will be on the market ranging in price from $1.4 million to $1.8 million, depending on the proximity of the property to Beach Drive.
