"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.
At the time of this listing, Ms. Shelley was enjoying the value appreciation. Little has changed since - except the home’s potential listing price could be significantly higher. For good reason. The homes are timeless and magnificent - inside and out. 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 region’s 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.
WORLD-CLASS MEDICINE AT YOUR DOOR . . .
Private homes remain the backbone of a neighborhood that’s now bordered on all sides by condominiums. Several million-dollar mansions have been built in the area with more always planned. However, the majority of original single-family homes, now upgraded, are still in place and add to the community’s timeless appeal.
The landscaping is as different as the 10 different model homes here. Some lawns are beautifully manicured, while others are very wild. Luis Llenza Garden Designs is responsible for creating some of the natural landscaping within the community.
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. A shopping center is conveniently located just minutes away.
