Rio Vista Homes For Sale

Riverfront. Historic architecture. Mature canopy. Tight-knit community.

Spanish for “river view,” Rio Vista real estate is uniquely situated south of Fort Lauderdale’s beautiful New River. Its other borders are the Intracoastal, South Federal Highway and SE 12th Street. The old-fashioned neighborhood with approximately 1,000 homes is often compared to Miami’s Coral Gables for its Mediterranean Revival style and old-growth trees that keep residents cool even in the dead of summer. Though unprotected by preservation laws, most of its residences have been lovingly restored to their original splendor when the area was developed in the 1920s as part of the city’s first housing boom. There’s an ample selection of work by pioneering architects John Peterman and Francis Abreu; both specialized in Spanish looks. A few midcentury modern condominiums also line the river, though the bulk is single-family residences.

Families find that a home in Rio Vista is one of the most welcoming places to settle in east Fort Lauderdale. It’s common to see them driving around in golf carts, playing at the children’s park and making use of the Lauderdale Yacht Club’s pool, fitness center and tennis facilities. Built in the 1930s in response to Rio Vista’s residential growth, the club has been updated for a new era. An active civic association publishes newsletters, organizes safety patrols and hosts events throughout the year. Within minutes residents can walk to downtown, Riverwalk and Las Olas Boulevard for shopping, dining and culture. It’s where urban meets suburban for the best of both worlds.

A luxurious community, Rio Vista is among the oldest and most revered neighborhoods in Fort Lauderdale. Homes boast manicured landscaping, winding sidewalks ideal for morning or evening walks, and spectacular waterfront views. Spanish architecture and easy access to the Atlantic from waterfront homes makes Lake Rio Vista one of the most desired areas in Fort Lauderdale
