Imperial Point Real Estate
"Betty Shelley enjoys living in Imperial Point in her three-bedroom, three-bath home with pool, that was built in the early 1960s. This model sold for $34,990 at that time and now, with upgrades, has an asking price of $500,000 to $600,000."
- Ms. Shelley, President of Imperial Point Civic Organization.
Drive through this neighborhood and enjoy some of Florida's best tropical landscape designs by award winning landscape designer, Luis Llenza.
Imperial Point homes had the first all electric General Electric appliances. Ronald Reagan visited and demonstrated them for Life Magazine! Of interest to some of our urban transplants is our sidewalks. They make walking very safe in this neighborhood.

Private homes remain the backbone of the neighborhood, now bordered on all sides by condominiums. Several mansions, in the million -dollar category, are being built within the area. However, a majority of original single- family homes, now upgraded, are still in place.
The landscaping is as different as the 10 different model homes here, Ms. Shelley explains. Some lawns are beautifully manicured, while others are very wild. Luis Llenza Garden Designs is responsible for creating natural landscaping within the neighborhood.
Imperial Point is within walking distance to the library and hospital. An elementary school, middle school and high school are all close by, as are several houses of worship, restaurants and privately owned retail stores that are also within walking distance. A shopping center is conveniently located just minutes away.
