East Pensacola Heights still has a lot of charm and character even though it has built up a bit more over the past years, including a high rise condo called Scenic Terrace overlooking Escambia Bay. This Pensacola condo was completed in 1999 amid a lot of controversy. In the picture below, you can see the view of East Pensacola Heights from Bayview Park, which is in East Hill. The Scenic Terrace condo is in the background.
My feeling is that most people who live in East Pensacola Heights would like to stay there. As you drive through the area, you see very few homes for sale. It is not like East Hill where there are multiple homes on every block for sale. But then, East Pensacola Heights is considerably smaller than East Hill.
Many of the homes in East Pensacola Heights are older. Of all the homes sold in 2007, over half were built prior to 1960, with the oldest home sold built in 1928. There are also a lot of nice old oak trees in just about every neighborhood. The area has a historic homey feeling to it. Here are a couple of random homes I believe capture the feeling of living in East Pensacola Heights.
