Odessa Homes for Sale

Untouched Beauty

Odessa is located about 20 Minutes from Downtown Tampa and was founded in the 1880s by Peter Demens, a Russian immigrant who established the community through the Orange Belt Railway. Demens also founded St. Petersburg, Florida and named both communities after places he used to go to in his native country.  A large sawmill provided that area with employment until the early to Mid 1900’s.  Certain families have called Odessa their home for generations and generations.  Thus, leaving the almost untouched natural beauty intact.

 

Odessa’s great attraction is its close proximity to Tampa and Clearwater while having the feeling of living in a more rural environment.
