The Tampa Bay housing market is one of the hottest in the nation ... and not just because of the Florida temps.

We really do have every kind of pad available — from Derek Jeter-worthy waterfront estates and tricked-out condos to meticulously maintained Craftsman style homes and beachy cottages.

Today we’re taking a peek at some homes that just hit the market. And bells and whistles? These homes have all of them.

Located on a prime parcel on Davis Islands, this custom home is sure to be an entertainer’s dream with six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a boat dock, and a European-inspired kitchen. The best part?

    🌊 Protecting our beaches

    Flooding and beach erosion are top of mind right now around TBAY, and (because we’re all about the positive around here) we have some good news for you.

    This week, the City of St. Pete + Tampa Bay Watch kicked off work on a new living shoreline — otherwise known as a “protected, stabilized coastal edge” — project at Maximo Park. Volunteers and city staff are placing hundreds of oyster reef balls and shell bags along the southern shoreline of Maximo Park, Pinellas Point Drive South, and Sunshine Skyway Lane South, according to a release.

    Once finished, the shoreline will span 7,842 sqft and help fortify the area and its coastal habitats against future erosion. The project will also improve the coastline’s biodiversity, and boost water quality. The next phase of the project includes planting native coastal plants for upland restoration, which aims to further defend the beach during storms.

    If you’re asking me — which no one is — I would choose the Coffee Pot Boulevard pad. Solely because I would love to walk my chocolate lab along the waterfront every morning. Speaking of doggone good walks, check out our parks guide for your latest trek.
