A St. Pete home designed by famed architect Blanchard Jolly is back on the market
A rare Tampa Bay gem designed by Blanchard Jolly, the renowned architect behind iconic local spots like the Hospitality House at Busch Gardens and the now demolished Inverted Pyramid Pier in St. Pete, is on the market for $1,790,000.
Located on the shores of Boca Ciega Bay, at 2900 Pelham Rd. N, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom estate is an absolute stunner. Built in 1982, the near 4,200-square-foot home still retains Jolly's original vision, and features a double-sided fireplace, a library, a sauna, an oversized kitchen, a dock, and wall-to-ceiling windows that overlook a multi-level endless pool.
Jolly, who was one half of the Harvard Jolly architecture firm and was a pupil of Frank Lloyd Wright, died in 2017 from side effects of skin cancer treatments. But the famed architect left behind a massive amount of recognizable structures in the Central Florida region. Besides the aforementioned buildings, Jolly's work can be seen at the Sunken Gardens in St. Pete, the terminal building at the Albert Whitted Airport, Booker High School in Sarasota, and many others local spots.
The home has been on and off the market for the last few years, but with the insanely low inventory in Tampa Bay it may finally find a buyer.
The list agent for this property is Jimmy Brylinke of Remax Metro.
