The Dickens House, St. Pete’s historic bed-and-breakfast, is back on the market


St. Petersburg's historic and award-winning bed-and-breakfast, the Dickens House, is back on the market for $1,585,000.

Located at 335 8th Ave. NE, in the Old Northeast neighborhood, the Dickens House has struggled to keep the guest rooms full over the years, partially due to direct competition with local Airbnb rentals, reports the Tampa Bay Times.

But that doesn't mean you can't make it work, right?

Built in 1912, the 4,206-square-foot Craftsman-style home comes with 6 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, as well as motion sensor lighting, a fire sprinkler system, central vacuum, gas hot water heaters, new hurricane rated windows, updated electric, and a new roof installed in 2019. It also features a detached carriage house, a three car garage, a curated outdoor garden patio, and most importantly, it has an active active bed and breakfast license and a food license.

The listing agent is Natalie DeVicente of Southern Roots Realty.
