Historic Kenwood

What buyers in the neighborhood can expect
Historic Kenwood, known for its Florida craftsmen bungalows, has definitely experienced an increase in property values in recent years, especially for those properties that have been renovated and improved. A good rule of thumb is that homes south of Fifth Avenue will be slightly expensive than homes to the north of it.

Since these are older homes, you’re likely to encounter smaller rooms and original bathrooms unless there have been extensive renovations.

If you’re an outdoorsy kind of person, though, you’ll love the spacious back yards that many of the houses have.

Overview: St. Petersburg’s Historic Kenwood neighborhood is infused with charming bungalows, working artists and the nearby shopping and restaurants of the Grand Central District. Bounded by Ninth Avenue to the north, and Central Avenue to the south, it boasts a robust collection of Florida craftsmen bungalows and was designated a historic district in 2003.

The neighborhood is located about two miles west of downtown and stretches from 22nd Avenue on its east to 34th Street to the west. That made it the perfect spot to become one of St. Petersburg’s first suburbs in the early part of the 20th century,

Most of the neighborhoods home were built between the 1920s and 1950s, and 170 were moved there from other neighborhoods in the 1930s, according the the neighborhood association website.

The median value for a home in Historic Kenwood is $293,100, according to data from Zillow.

After a decline, a renaissance: After its heyday in the 1950s, the neighborhood started a slow decline. But in the 1990s, with the revitalization of downtown St. Petersburg already under way, many saw the neighborhood as a more affordable alternative to the escalating prices of the Old Northeast and downtown.

Many of those early buyers were members of the LGBTQ community, who also contributed to the renaissance of the nearby Grand Central District. Even today, you’ll see many rainbow flags dotting the restored houses, and in June it’s the site of one of the largest gay pride celebrations in the Southeast.

Historic Kenwood leaders also saw the value in creating an artists’ community where artisans could make and sell their work. And today you’ll find painters, sculptors and every medium in between practicing their craft. The neighborhood also hosts a well-attended Bungalow Festival each year.
