Snell Isle Neighborhood in St. Petersburg, FL

Live in one of St Petersburg's Premier Neighborhoods


Snell Isle neighborhood

Snell Isle neighborhood was founded in October of 1925. Snell Isle is a beautiful 275-acre island in Northeast St Petersburg. It consists of hundreds of homes with open bay, or deep-water access to Tampa Bay. Centering Snell Isle Boulevard, the street is named after local developer C. Perry Snell (1869–1942), a man from Kentucky who moved to St. Petersburg in 1900 and began buying properties and developing them into upscale residential neighborhoods, commercial buildings, and public parks. He was the driving force behind the creation and emergence of the Snell Isle neighborhood in the 1920s. According to an article in Tampa Bay Magazine, when the development, originally a muddy mangrove island, officially opened in October 1925, only 39 of its 275 acres were above the high tide line. Even so, Snell quickly sold over $7,000,000 worth of lots there.

In 1926, Snell also opened on Snell Isle the Renaissance Vinoy Golf Club and Resort which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  The Snell Isle neighborhood is also home to St. Petersburg Woman’s Club.  C. Perry Snell built the Women’s Club on Coffee Pot Bayou to give them a set location.  He considered them the city’s strongest and most important organization.  Search of Snell Isle neighborhood homes here:
