MacDill AFB sits squarely at the south end of the Interbay Peninsula in the City of Tampa, Florida. Residential development began on the Interbay Peninsula starting in the early part of last century. Homes were first built on the northeastern shore in the Hyde Park area as well as down near the base in the Port Tampa City area. Development then slowly covered the peninsula from north to south. By the 1970′s, much of the peninsula was built out.
There are a few builders that have scooped up small remaining undeveloped parcels near the base and are now building those areas out. Meanwhile, many of the older homes have been demolished and new homes were built to take their place.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at what’s available in new construction of single family homes near MacDill AFB. When I say “near the base“, I am speaking of the area between the base and Gandy Boulevard, a major road that bisects the peninsula from east to west.
Here’s a sampling of homes built in 2006 or later that are currently available for sale:
The new Palm Grove subdivision is very near the base and features a new 3/2 home of 2243sqft priced at $389k. Built on an 89′ x 75′ lot, the home is wood frame construction with a 2-car garage included. Listed by Excel Realty Network. For new construction in this area, this is currently the lower end of the price spectrum. There are a couple of similarly sized homes within Palm Grove priced in the mid $400s.
There are quite a few new homes being built along Interbay Blvd., another main road that moves east-west across the lower end of the peninsula. One such home is at 6215 Interbay Blvd. This one is a 5/3 of almost 3000 sqft that is currently priced at $475k, down from $570k back in January. Listed by Geary and Associates Realty
Just north of the home on Interbay is a new, similarly sized 4 bedroom home priced at $485k. 3105 W Paxton features volume ceilings and French doors leading to a large back yard (125′ deep lot). The master suite has two walk-in closets and a bath with garden tub. Listed by Keller Williams South Tampa.
And while the majority of the newly constructed homes in the area are in the $400k to $600k range, there are 12 that top the $1m dollar mark as well. Most of these are at the waterfront, gated community developed by WCI communities known as Westshore Yacht Club. At the top end of the spectrum you’ll find a recently completed 4 bedroom, 5 1/2 bath home of just over 4500 square feet. This home is directly on Tampa Bay with a large outdoor kitchen and pool area in the rear with great view westward. Listed by Smith & Associates, Realtors.
So while there are plenty of new single family homes available near MacDill AFB, prices start at around the $400k mark currently, with many of them in the $500k-$600k range. Contact us for further information regarding homes near MacDill Air Force Base.
