NEIGHBORHOOD AMENITIES, HISTORY & BLOG
Platted and developed in the late 1950s and 60s, Phillippi Gardens was an idea dreamed up by the developer Reid Farrell, who invited several builders to create a unique community of waterfront and garden homes, larger than most homes being developed at the time, on larger lots and proudly boasting winding roads and close proximity to shopping, schools, the beach and Downtown. Originally, there was water access on Ship's Channel but the property was sold by the developer. Here is no current homeowners association but residents are working to organize a voluntary one. The community is NOT deed restricted and residents are allowed to park their boats and RVs here. Sixty years later, despite changes, Phillippi Gardens has successfully maintained it's mid-century tropical charm and is seeing homes being remodeled by new owners and some on the water being redeveloped. Upcoming mixed use development south of the neighborhood on Stickney Point Road will most probably increase the value of Phillippi Gardens.
