A St. Pete midcentury home designed by famed architect William B. Harvard is now for sale

The legacy of late Tampa Bay architect William B. Harvard Sr includes notable local buildings like the now demolished Inverted Pyramid Pier in St. Pete and the Hospitality House at Busch Gardens,  and now a residence he designed in 1954 is on the market in Allendale Terrace.

Located at 801 37th Ave. N, the midcentury modern home was designed and built specifically for Harvard, and according to the listing the estate has stayed in the family ever since.

The 3,288-square-foot home includes four bedrooms and four bathrooms, as well as a den, an office, multiple entertaining spaces, cypress and mahogany paneling, an original George Nelson wall clock, original bathroom tiles, and a pool.

Harvard, who died of cancer in 1995, was a founding partner of Harvard Jolly Clees Toppe Architects, and besides the Pier, his resume also includes quite a few iconic Tampa Bay buildings, like Derby Lane, the Federal Building in St. Petersburg, the Tides Hotel at Redington Beach, Pasadena Community Church, the St. Pete Beach Municipal Building, and the award-winning Municipal Pavilion and Bandstand in Williams Park, among others.

The home is currently asking $1.9 million and the listing agents are Billy Harvard, IV and Natalie DeVicente of Southern Roots Realty.
