Stretching from the University of South Florida - Tampa Campus to the Tampa International Airport, the North Tampa area boasts convenient highway access and a number of other remarkable advantages. North Tampa is not a typical college town though it is in close proximity to the university. Popular communities within North Tampa include Tampa Heights, Northdale, and Seminole Heights. Seminole Heights is a remarkable historic neighborhood with roots dating back to the early 1900s. Today the neighborhood is home to an abundance of bungalow homes with Florida Vernacular, Florida Cracker and high-style Craftsman and Arts & Crafts styles. Considering this was the dominant style in the early 20th century, this abundance of Bungalow architecture isn’t surprising.
The historic neighborhood of Seminole Heights is also home to many Mediterranean Revival homes. Though the style was only popular for around fifteen years, it is a dominant style of many historic Tampa homes and is the sole style found in the city of Temple Terrace. However, the presence of these homes is modest in scale within Seminole Heights, with Mediterranean Revival style homes scattered among the bungalows. Also common in Seminole Heights are prefabricated homes. Prior to World War II ordering homes through a mail-order catalog was a common practice and Seminole Heights is home to many of these modest one story and larger two-story homes.
The prestigious Seminole Heights neighborhood is a charming community comprised of singles, young families, and seniors enjoying porch parties organized by the local neighborhood group. Whether it is the April Home Tour organized by Old Seminole Heights or the Holiday Home Tour of Southeast Seminole Heights, it isn’t uncommon to see residents coming together. There is a grassroots community garden organization, a playgroup for families, a bicycle club and multiple informal rotating potlucks in Seminole Heights. Though located in the middle of Tampa, this close-knit community has a delightful town ambiance that makes its charming real estate that much more attractive.
