This Snell Isle home, completely renovated in 2020 and loaded with style and water and pier views, is listed at $5.9M.

State of play: The Tampa Bay luxury market isn't immune to the tight squeeze of low inventory. A large house (over 6,000 square feet), on the water that's been completely updated is hard to come by, listing agent Lauren Krawczyk said.

Design: The modular exterior and two-story glass entry with a sculptural light fixture sets the stage for the home's contemporary style.

  • Though the redesign includes lots of clean lines and neutral colors, you'll find pops of color and interesting shapes throughout.
  • That artful flare is fitting as the house is currently owned by a local art collector and gallery owner.

Entertaining: The open layout and playful spaces create an ideal entertaining setup.

  • The custom chef's kitchen opens to the living and dining areas on the main floor. It also has a custom glass-enclosed wine room with honeycomb-shaped wine cubbies.
  • Downstairs features a wet bar, entertaining space and a private guest room.
  • Listing agents Alicia Warburton and Krawczyk picture a large family that likes to entertain moving in, given the layout, location and size.

Other highlights: Water views, sailboat access, quick drive to the beach, 3-minute boat ride or 10-minute walk to downtown St. Pete, spa-like bathrooms with tasteful tile, covered pool, outdoor living spaces.
