About Rio Vista Fort Lauderdale
One of the oldest and most prestigious neighborhoods in all of South Florida. The perfect waterfront location of nearly one thousand homes. Rio Vista Fort Lauderdale is the place to live if you love life out on the water. The community has a history dating back to the nineteen twenties, giving it a unique rich history when compared to the rest of South Florida. Several of the core streets in the community extend out into the Stranahan River as dead end streets, making them projectiles out into the water. Homes on both sides of these streets enjoy water views, and mansions at the end of the roads offer wide open one hundred and eighty degree views of the water. It's certainly a sight to see and an amazing place to live. The neighborhood is located in an exceptional spot that is bordered by the river to the East and US 1 to the West. The Tarpon River is the border to the North and SE 12 St is the border to the South.
There are many comparisons made between Rio Vista Fort Lauderdale and Coral Gables, the gorgeous suburb to the South in Dade County. The areas both feature abundant shade from large old trees that give the neighborhoods a unique character. The style of homes is also classically Spanish influenced for the most part with modern homes popping up more and more routinely to take advantage of the awesome water views. The neighborhood is one of the most luxurious in all of South Florida. The Rio Vista Fl homes tend to have exceptional landscape designs, gardens and an overall feeling of lush vegetation. Strolling through the community for a brisk walk or jog is wonderful due to the canopy of the large trees and tranquil feeling of water around every corner.
