Neighborhood Documentary

Very early after completing the first of two restorations of the cottage and bungalow, I was approached by Suzanne Prieur of Old Seminole Heights Neighborhood Association regarding the development of a historical film on Old Seminole Heights. I was instantly engaged and helped to get the project off the ground.

A year later, the film was screened at the Tampa Theatre and, to my surprise pleasure, sold out the 1950-seat theater for a single screening.

We’re a Best Old House Neighborhood

We’re a Best Old House Neighborhood

And not just because we think so! Seminole Heights was selected by the editors of This Old House Magazine as one of the eight best communities in the country in which to buy and enjoy an old house. The article emphasized the beautiful neighborhood landscaping, the local parks, our Craftsman bungalows, and Newsweek magazine’s choice of Hillsborough High as one of the best schools in the country.
