You’ll Love This Neighborhood
This Bayshore Beautiful home for sale is located only three houses away from scenic Bayshore Boulevard and Tampa Bay.
While driving down Wallcraft Avenue on your way to this home, you’ll be struck by how the neighborhood feels like a smaller version of historic Hyde Park in South Tampa. Like Hyde Park, the neighborhood has sidewalks, and the streets are lined with mature trees.
Homes in the Bayshore Beautiful neighborhood were built in the early 1920’s. You won’t see a mansion being built next to a 1950’s ranch like some other popular South Tampa neighborhoods. To the contrary, the area is very consistent in character. You’ll find Spanish-style bungalows, airplane-style bungalows, Tudors and Traditional homes. Many of the homes’ exteriors have brick accents. Inside, they feature wood-burning fireplaces and large attic spaces.
When people move to Bayshore Beautiful, they intend to stay. This classic home was built in 1924 and has had the same owners since 2001. Next door, the home was built in 1918 and has had the same owners since 1993.
Additions have been added to a number of the homes in the neighborhood. No one wants to sell to a builder who will ruin the aesthetic of the neighborhood. In fact, it’s difficult to get anyone to sell at all.
Other Great Features
Homes in the Bayshore Beautiful neighborhood require no flood insurance! Most feature larger lot sizes, a quarter of an acre or more.
When you purchase this home, you’ll be in the middle of all the action on Bayshore Boulevard and MacDill Avenue. Café Paradiso Italian Restaurant is at the end of the block. If you prefer Irish, you won’t be left out. Mad Dogs and Englishmen Gastro Pub is two blocks away.
