An original C. Perry Snell home is now for sale in St. Pete

An historic home built by a developer who turned a muddy mangrove island into one of the most expensive neighborhoods in Tampa Bay is now on the market.

The two-story Mediterranean Revival waterfront estate is located at 2296 Coffee Pot Blvd.,  and was built in 1926 by Florida land boom developer C. Perry Snell, who is probably best known for establishing the Snell Isle neighborhood and the Snell Isle Golf Club, which is now part of the Renaissance Vinoy Resort.

The 3,770-square-foot home comes with three bedrooms and three bathrooms, as well as a whole house generator, a pool and spa,  a waterfront lot with a dock, and almost a complete interior remodel.

The Snell home is currently asking $3.5 million, and the listing agent is Tammy Campbell McNelis of Compass Florida.
