The Beautiful Story Behind this Crystal Beach Home

Mike Burke, the owner of this iconic beach home ended up living here for a couple of decades. He raised his kids here and enjoyed some of his retirement in the beautiful home. When asked why he choose this place to settle. Mike said that living in Crystal Beach was originally mentioned to him by a close friend of his. Since Mike himself is a huge fan of setting in a major Metropolitan area where he would have access to culture, art, and nature (the beach), he decided to settle in and has never regretted it a day since.

He also mentioned how the community is so unique and has given him a place away from the hustle and the bustle of the metropolitan area without being too far away from it. He even added that his daughter, Maya is currently the Assistant Director of the Tampa Bay Estuary Program, and his son who is an ardent fisherman had gotten a sense of relaxation and love of nature all because of living in this home.

While this home is very dear to him, he understands that at some point, this beach home will be enjoyed by another family that can appreciate it just as much. He even added that the home served him well, raising his kids, seeing his grandchildren grow, and serving as his retirement home for years.

A Brief History of the Crystal Beach Area and why it’s the Best Place To Be

Crystal Beach and the Palm Harbor area were first settled in the year 1850. Imagine what the landscaped would have looked like then?

The Palm Harbor area was originally citrus groves when it was first settled. About 100 years after Crystal Beach was settled, in 1948, they built the church. The church is located where most people gather to watch the sunset, and that church actually is still in use today. So from discovering, settling here, and then building up slowly the community has really evolved.

Initially, there were about 250 homes in the area and that has now grown to about 650 homes. The price point for most homes in Crystal beach can range anywhere from $250k, all the way up to $3 million. So quite a variety and part of what makes Crystal Beach a unique place in the Tampa Bay area.
