Fort Lauderdale is infamous for canals and intracoastal neighborhoods with waterfront homes and large yachts. Fort Lauderdale has many neighborhoods in the middle of the city’s action however they also have an exclusive and unique feel of suburban living, due to the natural beauty of the surroundings. Residents enjoy the best of both worlds; vibrant nightlife, easy commutes to downtown, and large private waterfront lots. In many neighborhoods in Fort Lauderdale you will find wide sidewalks, and plenty of room for children to play in the streets. Rio Vista is our neighborhood this week. It is a short drive to downtown, and a stones throw from the European thoroughfare Las Olas Boulevard, and the SE 17th Street Causeway. The homes in Rio Vista offer easy access to the Intracoastal Waterway and are minutes away from the Inlet and the Atlantic Ocean. It is also conveniently located to the Fort Lauderdale airport as well. Its’ streets are tree lined and the real estate located in this neighborhood is some of the most coveted in Fort Lauderdale.
Within its’ bounds are 1,000 homes that rarely come on the market. Developer C.J. Hector started this neighborhood at the end of World War 1 was and it was originally named New River. Rio Vista is translated into New River in Spanish. The style of homes varies today, however many were originally designed by architect Francis Abreu. These homes are distinctive due to their Mediterranean details, and some are still standing today. Another housing boom brought a new style of homes during the 1950’s and these are ranch style with flat roofs and one story. Some ranch houses are still on the market, however many were torn down to make way for new construction. Virginia Young Park is in the center of the neighborhood since the beginning and it continues as a play area for neighborhood children. Listings in this neighborhood are from just above half and million dollars to the multi-million dollar range.
