Villa Venyce is a traditional, canal and sound-front neighborhood south of Highway 98. It is across the street from Grandpointe and is built along the Inter-Coastal Waterway of Santa Rosa Sound.
Built around an extensive network of canals, Villa Venyce’s Waterfront Homes boast Deepwater Access to the Gulf of Mexico. It is not unusual to see large sport fishing boats moored in many of the backyards in the neighborhood. The homes were built mainly in the 70’s and 80’s. Most are brick and ranch-styled, with a few custom split plans and two stories sprinkled throughout, here and there. These older, Canal-Front Homes are often the best value in protected Deepwater, Waterfront in the Gulf Breeze Florida Real Estate Market.
Although the neighborhood has a few years on it, many of the homes have had extensive upgrades and renovations. The neighborhood is well-established and is considered a great place for kids since its inception. It is in the highly-coveted Santa Rosa County School District. Children attend Gulf Breeze High School, Gulf Breeze Middle School and Gulf Breeze Elementary School.
Santa Rosa Sound is created by the Gulf Breeze peninsula to the north and Santa Rosa Island to the south. Santa Rosa Island stretches from the Pensacola Pass to the Destin Pass and is home to Pensacola Beach, Navarre Beach, The Gulf Islands National Seashore and Ft. Pickens National Park.
Pensacola Beach is home to many Waterfront Restaurants. They can be visited by water, and many residents of Villa Venyce make the short boat ride across Santa Rosa Sound to dine at such places as The Grand Marlin, Flounders, Peg Leg Pete’s or The Paradise Bar and Grill. These eateries all have boat docks for their customers, great food and live music.
Next to Gulf Breeze Proper and the Gulf Breeze neighborhood of Grandpointe, Villa Venyce is one of the closest bedroom-community neighborhoods to Downtown Pensacola and all of its historical Real Estate.
