Belleair Florida is a small town in Pinellas County on the coastline just south of downtown Clearwater. It's home to about 4200 residents and began as a resort town with the original construction of the Belleview Hotel by Henry B Plant in 1896. This hotel increased tourism around the area and create a demand for a residential neighborhood. The first subdivision began construction in 1924 and the town was officially incorporated in 1925. It chose to be a separate entity from the neighboring city of Clearwater and today has its own city council of government.
Belleair has been touted as one of the best places to live in the state offering a good mix of the suburban and urban feel where most residents own their own homes. Being so close to the beach there are plenty of restaurants and parks and Belleair is home to many retirees and families. Nestled between Clearwater and Largo, this prestigious town features beautiful oceanfront homes, meticulously maintained streets, and a vibrant business community. Most homes are single-family properties and there are a few luxury condominiums in about 20 distinct neighborhoods. Many homes feature direct waterfront access with docs and boat lifts or beautiful views of the harbor, Sand Key, and Belleair Beach. The Belleair country cub takes up a huge chunk of the Belleair real estate as does the Belleair Park located in the north part of town.
In 2018, Belleair and the Belleair Historic Preservation board secured funding from the state to complete a historic study of the town's pre-1967 history including residents, homes, and structures. Below is a quick interview from that historic survey.
This growing community offers a unique sense of civic pride. While it has a colorful history throughout its inception, World War II, and even recent history, it remains to be a beautiful little spot in Pinellas County ideal for luxury homes and condos as well as retirees and families.
The Belleview Hotel is one of the most prominent landmarks in Belleair. It opened in 1897 on the Peninsula west of Tampa Bay, which was to become Pinellas County in 1912. Guests enjoyed all the amenities of this rustic living yet regal environment yachting on Clearwater Bay and horseback riding in the piney woods. The original nine-hole golf course that was on the grounds has grown to two 18 hole golf courses with Florida's first grass greens by World War I. In 1920 the hotel was purchased from the Plant Investment Company and was given a new name, The Belleview Biltmore Hotel. Just north of the hotel was a casino that added activities and events for snowbirds and hotel guests until about the mid-1940s. Today, it is known as the Belleview Inn and still carries with it a stunning history with social down of the rings and celebrations, the Belleair country club, fantastic rooms and suites, and beautiful venues for meetings, weddings, and gatherings.
While most residents own their own homes and many are retirees or snowbirds, there are families with school-age children and in this case, is important to understand the schools and the zones. Residents of Belleair are assigned to the Pinellas County school district and most students attend the Mildred Helms elementary school, the Largo middle school, and the Largo high school. There are only two schools within the city limits of Belleair, the Newman Flight Construction school and the Belleair Montessori Academy on Ponce De Leon Blvd. All other schools are located outside the city boundaries.
