By | News | No Comments

A master suite is nothing without a gorgeous master bathroom. Tae a peek inside some of our favorite Aspen VG master bathrooms that compliment their suite mates exquisitely!

The master bathroom inside Colonial Isle is a style we like to call modern-glam. The large mirrors and navy cabinetry are neutralized by taupe tiling and white stone countertops. The sea-glass accent strips give this luxury bathroom an added pop of color. Double rain showers? Check!

This spacious master bathroom in Venetian Court boasts not just one, but two full-sized vanities. The numerous vanity lights overhead allow for the perfect amount of light to flow through the space. Venetian Court’s white stand-alone bathtub is complemented by black window frames. The custom shower is detailed with a neutral, chevron tile design.

This dainty off-white master bathroom lies inside a beautiful home located in the Old Northeast neighborhood of St. Petersburg. We are obsessing over the simplicity of this design, with vintage-inspired sconces, brass hardware and glass knob drawer pulls.

Elegant and modern, the master bathroom inside Westbrook features a stand-alone tub, a rain shower and a stone accent wall. The pendant light above the tub brightens this bathroom with an appreciated touch of glam.

This spacious master bathroom of Leon Way has large windows, light-catching sleek surfaces and his & hers vanities. Getting ready in the morning has never been easier in this masterful suite!

If you thought the master bathroom inside Leon Way couldn’t get any grander, check out this additional makeup station and dual-head rain shower! You’ll never run out of storage in this extravagant bathroom.

Last but certainly not least, Everett’s master bathroom boasts earthy undertones and naturally-stained hardwood cabinetry. The subdued greens in this bathroom look boldly rich both night and day!

Living Local: St. Pete Neighborhood Identities

By | News | No Comments

St. Petersburg is home to a wide array of diverse neighborhoods, providing residents with a multitude of activities throughout their communities. The neighborhoods themselves hold characteristics that make them individually unique. At Aspen VG, we are fortunate enough to experience these neighborhood personalities firsthand, having built properties scattered across the St. Petersburg map.

We believe every block deserves to be celebrated, but have outlined a few key neighborhoods that make St. Petersburg the lively city that it is.

 

Roser Park

Situated on the southern edge of downtown, Historic Roser Park was St. Pete’s first historic district. Discovered and developed by Charles Martin Roser in the 1910s, Roser Park boasts hexagon block sidewalks, ornamental street lights, sloping hills, lush foliage and an elongating stream, otherwise known as Booker Creek.

There are approximately 144 households in the Roser Park district, with a collection of homes such as bungalows, chalets, cottages and estates. Nearby facilities include Bayfront Health, Johns Hopkins Medical/All Children’s Hospital, Tropicana Field, Campbell Park Rec Center, Bayboro Harbor and Salt Creek.

Crescent Lake

Crescent Lake is located just one mile north of downtown St. Petersburg. The Crescent Lake neighborhood is comprised of a hearty mix of early and mid-twentieth century homes, along with newly built properties. The neighborhood is made up of around 550 residences in its 35 square blocks, and includes a 56 acre public park.

East of Crescent Lake (yes, there is indeed a lake) is the “Great Banyan Tree,” a living jungle gym for neighborhood children to enjoy. Another attraction within Crescent Lake lines is the Huggins-Stengel Field, which was once home to the New York Yankees during spring training season. Due to its elegant homes and natural outdoor beauty, Crescent Lake has remained one of the neighborhood favorites amongst St. Petians.

Old Northeast

With its diverse architecture, cobblestone streets, white picket fences and lush gardens, the Historic Old Northeast neighborhood appeals to a large audience of homeowners and home buyers. Old Northeast contains approximately 4,100 households and is home to some 10,000 residents.

Located just north of St. Petersburg’s flourishing downtown, Old Northeast’s prime location makes it convenient to access the city’s ever-growing entertainment, shopping and arts scene. Additionally, the preserved parkland along Old Northeast’s bay features dog parks, an aquatic center, tennis courts and beach volleyball. The Historic Old Northeast neighborhood continues to thrive as new and recurring residents take in all that it has to offer.

Kenwood

The Historic Kenwood district is centrally located in St. Petersburg — less than one mile west of downtown, two miles from Tampa Bay and five miles from the beaches. Kenwood is unique for having one of the highest concentration of Craftsman-style Bungalow homes in the state of Florida. With those vintage 1920s abodes, you may find hexagon block sidewalks, large live oak trees with dangling Spanish moss and red brick roads.

Kenwood is popular for its booming arts and entertainment scene, offering monthly walking tours, festivals and events. Kenwood is host to the ever-popular ‘Bungalowfest‘ — a citywide, annual housing tour showcasing the neighborhood. Kenwood is on the list of National Register of Historic Places, making it a neighborhood you don’t want to miss.

 

The neighborhoods of St. Petersburg continue to provide admirable options for both homeowners and prospective home buyers. Rich in history, Aspen Venture Group strives to work with these neighborhoods to produce homes of exceptional quality, while also preserving the historic disposition of these sought-after places.

Trend Forecast: Mediterranean-Style Homes

By | News | No Comments

Mediterranean-style homes are currently the rave in regions that are in close proximity to the sea (hello, St. Pete). With origins from Spain, Greece and Italy, Mediterranean-style homes are often referred to today as “Spanish modern.”

To better differentiate what makes a home Mediterranean, we looked to the Home Gods, HGTV, in their online article “Mediterranean Style 101.” Below is a brief summary of our findings balanced with examples of Aspen VG Mediterranean-style homes.

See if you can spot any of these Mediterranean-inspired homes around your neighborhood!

Colors

Mediterranean-style homes’ colors echo those of the sea and sky and, depending on the region, can also include warm terra cotta, taupe, sand and yellow. One of the most notorious details of a Mediterranean home are the low-pitched, red clay-tile roofs.

Accents

Mediterranean accents such as mosaic tile embodies the true spirit of Eastern European design. Bring the tiles into your home or keep them exposed on the exterior in areas such as a patio deck or outlining a luxury pool wall. Additional accents that can be found throughout a Mediterranean home are exposed beams, arches, enclosed outdoor spaces and billowing drapes.

Texture

Texture is everything to a Mediterranean-style home. Layers of paint and glaze are often hand-rubbed onto stucco, plaster, or sand-textured walls to add visual depth. Stimulate the look of a plaster wall with a textured finish by using tinted drywall compound and colored beeswax.

Mediterranean architecture is a coalition of ideas that evolved from many different time periods and regions. In areas like Florida, Mediterranean-style homes are gaining popularity for their recognizable aesthetic and global influences. At Aspen Venture Group, we specialize in building homes of Mediterranean descent to showcase the true beauty and diversity in what can be found throughout other parts of the world.
