Spanish for “River View,” this prestigious community is adjacent to the beautiful Intracoastal Waterway and famed for its intricate canal system. Situated next to downtown Fort Lauderdale, Rio Vista is safe, serene, and guarantees an excellent standard of living.
Bound by US1 on the west, New River to its south, and SE 12th Street to its north, it’s exceptionally accessible and putting you near some of the most vibrant parts of the city. In fact, Las Olas Blvd – with its world-famous selection of clubs, boutiques, and restaurants – is only minutes away, with the city’s pristine beachfront just a short drive from the community.
Built in the early 1920s during the region’s first land boom, Rio Vista is one of the oldest and most desirable communities in Broward County, as well as one of the best planned. Comprising lush tree-lined streets and 1,000 or so single-family homes, you’ll find a vast array of elegant and unique architectural styles, with some old but updated properties mixed in with newer builds. Rio Vista properties are high-end and range from $299,000 to as much $32,000,000, making them among the most valuable and luxurious in the entire city.
One of the many great things about this high-end neighborhood is its flexibility: you don’t have to choose between waterfront living and interior homes, since Rio Vista offers both in equal measure. Opt for homes overlooking a serene body of water, or instead choose residences within the interior that more closely emulate a traditional neighborhood. There are a wide variety of floor plans that are sure to suite almost every lifestyle, with homes featuring anywhere between 2 and 8 bedrooms.
