"Hidden Lagoon" are the closest condos in Tierra Verde to Ft DeSoto Park. They are the southern most condos in Tierra Verde & Pinellas County. High end, gated, waterfront, boat slips. They are fairly new as well. There are some multi-million dollar mansions next door if you are looking for a (mega-sized) 'house'. As far as short sales go, I think there might be 1 or 2 in Hidden Lagoon but I know at least 1 of them is pending. I'd say 'get them while you can'. Good luck!
P.S. Property Taxes, Utilities, etc, are lower in Tierra Verde than the immediate surrounding areas because Tierra Verde is not part of St Petersburg. So stick with the isalnd of Tierra Verde if you can!... more
Tierra Verde is like an island in the carribean and Island Estates is like NY City. The only thing they have in common is they are both on the water. These two places would appeal to two completely different types of people. Island estates might appeal to snowbirds from large cities & Tierra Verde to native Floridia residents looking for unspoiled areas of old Florida spared from over development. No local city gov equals much lower property taxes, electric bills, etc...in Tierra Verde. Tierra Verde's Ft DeSoto Beach rated Top Beach in the USA on a regular basis- this year in TripTik or AAA or something like that, previously by Dr Beach & several others. Clearwater Beach isnt far from Island Estates & is nice, but small and it's a city beach so it's crowded. It can almost be a culture shock for Tierra Verde residents visiting there. Ft DeSoto has miles of unspoiled beach line with no development. You can walk a mile of beach and not see one person. This is partly why it is consistently ranked as one of the best beaches in the US. But not good if you're looking for tourists to socialize with. It just depends on what you're looking for.... more
I've not heard of that contractor before either. That doesn't mean he's not good, just unknown. I would recommend Coffman Construction. Mr Coffman lives in Tierra Verde and has done work for me and several people that I know, all with good results. His phone is 727-327-3031.... more
