About David Baras

After 30 years of practicing medicine, my wife and I have retired and plan on visiting our 3 children that live on the east coast, mid-west and west coast. We love our home and believe others will love it too. And we will soon be Grand-parents. YEAH!!

David Baras purchased this house in 1987

Why David Baras chose St Petersburg

We moved to St. Petersburg, Florida( from Omaha, Nebraska) in 1986 and rented for a year before we found our home. As soon as you open the front door you see the Tampa Bay water and we fell instantly in love with it. A hugh backyard for our young family continues being a playground for all kinds of activities,including our oldest daughter wedding 7 years ago. Close to our work,downtown,beaches,schools,sporting events,orchestra and playhouse,we knew we found the perfect home.

What makes this house unique

Living landlocked most of our earlier lives, we found instant love on living on the Tampa Bay water with beautiful sunrises,dolphins and fish, birds of all kinds and of course boating. During the summer we can watch incredible skies and enjoy a cool drink sitting at the end of our dock watching incredible wildlife. Being on the road,we hope others will want to enjoy our"paradise home" as much as we do!!

average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Saint Petersburg waterfront home

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to this wonderful bay side property in an upscale, charming neighborhood. Spectacular views of the bay from two bedrooms, family room, kitchen and eating area. Beautifully landscaped back yard offers privacy on both sides of house. Outstanding bird watching from the patio and the 100' pier. The great room is huge with high ceiling but still cozy and comfortable. We will continue to visit this gem as long as it is available.
