This site was made to assist real estate professionals and homebuyers seeking detailed information about traditional neighborhoods in Pasco, Hernando, Hillsborough, and Pinellas counties located in the west central part of Florida.

The site plans to focus on the differences offered by these unique communities and address challenges and benefits with facts and information gathered from the combined experience of living in a TND, and working closely with realtors and buyers on common misperceptions of these diverse, but wonderful communities.

Our first traditional neighborhood to be highlighted is Longleaf, a TND established in 1998 and located in Pasco County, Florida.  The
goal is to fine tune helpful information and then duplicate the process for the Hillsborough County TND communities of Highland Park, Westpark Village at Westchase and Winthrop.  Additionally, information on the larger 'New Towns' such as Connerton in Pasco County will be introduced.
Traditional Neighborhood Developments (TNDs) are NOT your typical Real Estate! 

TNDs utilize a comprehensive planning system that integrates a variety of housing types and land uses with homes on shorter, connected streets and provide alleys for rear loaded garages… but use modern development techniques, even in the case of revitalization.  Fondly called 'front porch communities', the porch serves as an extension of each home.  TNDs incorporate many of the attributes of traditional small towns, such as schools, downtown businesses and numerous community parks within a five minute walking distance of each home.  TNDs build communities by offering amenities within common areas for all to share.


In addition to explaining differences and listing new and established TNDs, each community will be showcased featuring downtown businesses, community events and newsletters, and will offer an area to promote new, resale, Live/Works and rental properties available.

PDF searchable community documents to assist realtors and homeowners with neighborhood questions and a link to developer and/or CDD websites will be online.  Articles about CDDs, Live/Works, and New Towns are just a few of the other topics that will be provided at the tabs under "Related Topics and Articles". 


Please take a few minutes to browse our site and learn more about TNDs.  If you have an unanswered question, please don't hesitate to contact me at pmarron@tampabay.rr.com.
