Southwest Florida has quite a few options for home buyers looking for the country club lifestyle, but River Wilderness in Parrish is unique in the sense that it combines golf with boating.
If you have always wanted to live in community that is both a country club and a yacht club, you should make it a point to evaluate what River Wilderness has to offer.
River Wilderness started development in the 1980s. The finest home builders were chosen to develop the various sections: Anchor Builders, Arthur Rutenberg and John Cannon. The builders did not stick to the Florida ranch formula at River Wilderness; they introduced the early Mediterranean revival floor plans that would eventually become staples of residential architecture in Sarasota and Manatee Counties.
River Wilderness is located in the northern banks of the Manatee River; as an exclusive Parrish community, you can expect to find larger and more sumptuous homes. Some of the properties are golf villas that share patios and courtyards, but the real estate market is more active in terms of single-family residences.
Three and four-bedroom houses with at least 1,900 square feet of interior space are the norm at River Wilderness, and they can be found listed between $240K and $659K. You can expect lots of extras such as decorative outdoor lighting, garden tubs with separate shower stalls, fenced pools, windowed hallways and foyers, lake views, craft rooms, studios, gourmet kitchens, wine cellars, and more.
The country club amenities of River Wilderness begin with the 18-hole golf course, tennis courts, clubhouse, fitness center, nature trails and the junior Olympic pool. A very unique amenity is the community docking spaces and boat ramp, which active boaters have transformed into a mini yacht club.
River Wilderness feels very private and secluded, but it is actually located only a mile away from the Parkwood Square shopping plaza. The Ellenton Premium Outlets are just a few miles to the west on the way to Downtown Bradenton. The gorgeous beaches of Anna Maria Island are close enough to visit every weekend.
