A genuinely prestigious community that is the setting for several stunningly impressive waterfront mansions and palatial estates, River Woods is a nearly isolated enclave set on the northern banks of the beautiful Manatee River in Parrish, Florida, only minutes east of Bradenton and immediately south of old Tampa Road. River Woods is a small, deed-restricted community of 259 ultra-lavish single-family homes; with 7 charming lakes and an enchanting river, most River Woods homes are riverfront or lakeside properties, while the inland homes feature spectacular views of the great Florida outdoors.
River Woods is a diverse and lively community that active families, “empty nest” couples, and retires alike call home. Residents of all ages savor life at River Woods and especially the recreational life; the amenities at River Woods include a friendly clubhouse with a state-of-the-art fitness center, a heated pool, 2 lighted, clay-surface tennis courts, and a lovely community gazebo that extends over the Manatee River. The River Woods clubhouse is also the setting for a full schedule of social and recreational community events including movie nights and an annual Hawaiian-style luau.
While the homes at River Woods are extraordinary, the community’s location is also remarkable. Residents at River Woods are positioned to take advantage of everything the dynamic Bradenton-Sarasota area offers. The community is 2 miles east of Interstate 75 and only 20 minutes from bustling downtown Sarasota, the beautiful barrier islands, and 35 miles of sunny Gulf beaches including world-famous Siesta Beach. These beaches offer virtually unlimited opportunities and venues for boating, fishing, kayaking, windsurfing, and more. Sarasota, of course, is widely-acclaimed for its commitment to culture and the arts. It’s the home of the Ringling Museum of Art, the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, the Sarasota Film Festival, and numerous other cultural and artistic venues and events. Golfers love that River Woods is less than 10 minutes from the River Wilderness Golf & Country Club, the Buffalo Creek Golf Course, and Imperial Lakewoods Country Club. With an annual average temperature of 73 degrees, living at River Woods means that outdoor recreations are feasible almost daily.
River Woods residents also have access to superlative, world-class shopping in downtown Sarasota, at St. Armand’s Circle on opulent St. Armand’s Key, and along the booming University Parkway corridor which divides Manatee from Sarasota counties. River Woods offers 3BR and larger single-family luxury homes and stately mansions from approximately $250,000 to $2,500,000, with inland homes significantly less costly than waterfront properties.
