Unknown To Most
Riverland is a hidden Fort Lauderdale treasure in many regards.
Nestled sleepily in the lush, tropical South Florida vegetation, this kick your feet up on the hammock and sip your rum and coke oasis is just minutes west of the hustle and bustle of the booming downtown commerce, shopping, dining, and nightlife of Las Olas Boulevard and the 17th Street Causeway that are Fort Lauderdale icons of big city life.
Location! Location! Location!
Life in the breeze and shade of Riverland’s massive canopy of trees, enjoying your personal South Florida sanctuary in the cover of greenery, is even sweeter with the convenience of metropolitan indulgences within a short trip.
The main vein of this tree laden neighborhood is Riverland Road, which curves south and then west from Davie Boulevard just off of I95 to State Road 7 (441), giving quick and easy access to 595 and the Turnpike – the location is ideal as you are literally five minutes away from three major expressways that will take you anywhere in South Florida you want to go.
Almost the entire south side of Riverland Road is lined by waterfront properties with no fixed bridges to contend with!
No zero lot line houses crammed on top of each other – lush landscaping everywhere you turn!
And the houses! Wow! The houses…
Riverland has something unique for everyone.
On the southwest side of Riverland Road is Lauderdale Isles. If you live the boating culture and you are looking for the best price in Fort Lauderdale for waterfront property without sacrificing the quality of your neighborhood, the isles are home to your future best friends.
Riverland boasts some incredible architecture throughout many of its inconspicuous tree sheltered streets, which are best appreciated by taking a few sightseeing strolls on foot or bicycle as some of these gems are densely camouflaged by their naturally preserved landscaping and you would drive right by them without notice!
Some non-waterfront streets will give you the feeling of taking a walk in Disney’s ” The Jungle Book,” with their temple like 4,000 square foot homes almost completely ornamented by indigenous vines and vegetation.
There is a unique home for every connoisseur of diverse design. Tri-level modern metal and cement with square lines and soaring see-through glass walls, massive log cabins, Shaker, New England, Key West, Eco Friendly Design, Colonial, and on and on and on…
Now Is the Time!
As Fort Lauderdale expands westward, Riverland property values will continue to rise. As the secret gets out (I know – I have a part to play in this unveiling and I fully accept the consequences), you will be in more competition with those that want to enjoy life in the palms within just the right distance to the big city amenities and entertainment.
Take a serious look at this hidden gem in South Florida that is just minutes away from The Hard Rock, St. Thomas Aquinas High School (incredible academic and athletic achievement programs), Las Olas Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale Beach, 17th Street Causeway, Rio Vista, Shady Banks, Riverside Park, Tarpon River, Riverwalk, and so much more!
