River Wilderness is a secluded, upscale golf community featuring spectacular luxury homes for sale on ample-sized lots on the beautiful northern banks of Florida’s legendary Manatee River. Set in Parrish, Florida, just south of Old Tampa Road, River Wilderness is 5 miles east of Interstate 75, only minutes from Bradenton, 10 minutes from the Gulf of Mexico, and almost centrally set amid Sarasota, Tampa, and St. Petersburg. River Wilderness first offered luxury homes for sale in the early 1990s and the community continues to expand today. Currently it’s the site of 700 charming luxury homes spread across 1,400 flourishing Florida acres. Another 150 ultra-luxury homes are part of the newest River Wilderness waterfront neighborhood, Rivè Isle, which opened in 2006.
River Wilderness is a charming and quiet location, truly conducive to peace of mind. Manned, gated security operates around the clock, and boat owners appreciate the community boat ramp. Every home offers a lakefront, nature preserve, or carefully-landscaped golf course view. The luxury homes at River Wilderness sit on lots almost half-an-acre in size; homes have been built in several sizes and styles, so there’s probably a home at River Wilderness for every savvy homebuyer looking to combine seclusion, luxury, a central location, and a delightful year-round climate. More than 50 charming lakes attract a variety of Florida wildlife; the lakes are complemented by majestic shade trees and lush Florida foliage.
The community’s centerpiece is the River Wilderness Golf & Country Club, which features a challenging 150-acre course designed by Ted McAnlis. The Club is committed to environmental preservation and the course is part of the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary System. The active 27,000 square-foot clubhouse at River Wilderness Golf & Country Club sponsors a full schedule of social and recreational activities; daily lunch, art classes, and group outings are only the beginning of the list of activities. The Club also offers a children’s playground, a heated pool and cabana deck, full banquet facilities, and several fine dining options. A state-of-the-art fitness center sponsors classes in tennis, swimming, and physical fitness for both beginners and fitness veterans. The full-time staff includes a fitness director and an onsite massage therapist. With southwest Florida’s splendid climate and an annual average temperature of 73 degrees, River Wilderness residents can pursue their recreational passions almost daily.
The centralized setting gives residents quick access to Sarasota, Bradenton, St. Petersburg, Tampa, and the beautiful barrier islands and sunny beaches strung along the southwest Florida Gulf Coast. River Wilderness features 2BR, 3BR, and 4BR single-family luxury homes from approximately $200,000 to $750,000. With lavish luxury homes for sale, generous lots, and a lovely, friendly community with all the amenities, the charms of living at River Wilderness cannot be denied.

“Before we met Chad Suarez, another agent showed us several homes. The properties didn’t match our needs, and we felt she hadn’t listened to us. We met Chad Suarez and immediately he put us at ease. We could ask Chad anything, and if he didn't know the answer, he would find out and get back to us promptly. He recommended several great local restaurants, too! Our needs were extensive so we looked at maybe 20 homes, but Chad was always professional and helpful, a pleasure to work with, and we’re now very pleased with our new Florida home. I would recommend Chad Suarez to anyone buying a home in Bradenton.”
