Tampa Relocation Guide

In a city as large and diverse as Tampa, there are so many places to live that it can seem daunting trying to pick the right location. Our modern custom homes fit in perfectly in numerous neighborhoods in Tampa, so all we have to do is find the right one for you. Arjen Homes can help you find your dream home in many of the great neighborhoods of Tampa, and even across the bay in St. Petersburg. Let’s take a look at some of the places we love building homes.


Wellswood is a quieter neighborhood only 10 minutes north of downtown Tampa. Wellswood could be perfect for you and your family if you’re seeking something affordable with a bit of suburban taste. At the same time, Wellswood is far from a cookie-cutter neighborhood. A wide variety of homes from different eras in different styles line the roads, and your modern custom home from Arjen Homes will add your personality to the tapestry of Wellswood. Did we mention it’s 4 miles from the heart of downtown? Your home in Wellswood places you near awesome attractions like the Tampa Zoo, Busch Gardens, and all the premier shopping Tampa has to offer.

South Tampa

The Interbay Peninsula is home to many neighborhoods, and what they all have in common is close proximity to spectacular amenities. South Tampa is known for its shopping, from all of your favorite big name retailers to specialty boutiques and high ends stores in Hyde Park. Perhaps the best part about a new home in South Tampa is the scenic bay location. Bayshore Boulevard is a 4 mile shoreline sidewalk that joggers, cyclists, and walkers enjoy year round. Living near the waterfront also means, of course, that you’ll always have fresh seafood to try at local restaurants.


For a truly unique experience living in Tampa, look no further than Thonotosassa, where you can find a rare country style life while still enjoying close proximity to downtown Tampa. We’re thrilled to have found Stonelake Ranch, an amazing lakeside community where you can build your custom home. Stonelake Ranch overlooks 880 acre Lake Thonotosassa, where you can boat and fish. The private gated community has an abundance of open space for walking, biking, or horseback riding. There’s even a clubhouse complete with a fitness center, catering kitchen, and great patio overlooking the lake.

The natural scenery is one of Florida’s best features, and Thonotosassa is a hidden gem sitting just outside Tampa. It’s rare to find untouched nature so close to a big city, but Stonelake Ranch is exactly that.

St. Petersburg

Across the bay, St. Petersburg offers some of the most idyllic living in Florida. St. Petersburg is one of the best cities in which to live in Florida, and one of the best to retire in the country. Some of the reasons for this are the incredible beaches, the easy going lifestyle, and surprising affordability. St. Petersburg is far from just a retirement friendly city, and it’s very diverse in every way. The nightlife and adventurous outdoor fun attracts younger professionals as well. Arjen Homes is thrilled to be building in St. Petersburg, a city that’s an essential part of the Tampa Bay area.

We’ve only skimmed the surface of all the great things Tampa has to offer. Every family has unique needs and wants for their home, and as a custom builder Arjen Homes is attentive and flexible to them. Let us help you find the perfect community for your modern custom home in Tampa. Contact us to get started.
