Where can you build your dream home on the St. Johns River?

Where can you build your dream home on the St. Johns River?

Posted on: May 3, 2019

The world moves at such a rapid pace, so it’s good to sit back and enjoy the water every once in a while. It’s nice, but what does the waterfront do for us? Years ago, we got our sustenance from it, in the form of fish. Today, while we might fish for fun, or capture a great outdoors to share on Instagram, we get so much more enjoyment from the water. That’s what makes Riverside at RiverTown so great: it incorporates the river into every part of its lifestyle. From the joy of building your dream home to being right on the waterfront, Riverside is by proxy, a peaceful place to be.

Science says that getting out on the water is good for you, that it lowers your blood pressure and makes you feel more positive. While we agree with all of that, you don’t need science to prove this to you, and at Riverside, you don’t need to wait to get to the waterfront. All that you have to do is step outside from your dream home onto the neighborhood’s private dock, and feel the fresh air on your face. Stand outside and watch the waves come in. You just need to hop on your boat and head towards nowhere, just to enjoy the sensation of being outside. That’s what is good for you and your well-being.

Humans are biologically drawn to patterns. We find the artistry in a narwhal’s shell, the symmetry in a leaf’s veins, and the poetry in sand dunes. These patterns bring us peace and tranquility, and make us feel like everything’s right with the world. It’s no wonder that we’re drawn to the waterfront. The waterfront serves as a design inspiration for many homes. It’s part of the reason why the homes at Riverside instill a level of calm in anyone who walks in. Incorporating features from the river, such as its muted color palette and tranquil atmosphere, will make you feel at home the minute that you walk in. The accredited builders that RiverTown has assembled have put an unprecedented level of effort into the construction of their residences, and will spare no effort in building your dream home.

That’s what makes Riverside at RiverTown special. Past the gates of this private community are custom-made estate homes by some of the best builders in North Florida. Waterfront properties sit alongside the St. Johns River and Hallowes Cove, with private and shared docks abounding. Build your home and your life the way it should be, on the riverside.

Waterfront living is probably the best gift that you can give someone, whether it’s yourself or the next generation. Not just the house or the boat, but the waterfront itself. The peace and solitude of living by the water, the easy access to waterfront fun, or the chance to sit back and watch the day end and the night set in from the St. John’s River. At RiverTown’s new neighborhood, Riverside, you have a chance to give that to someone, or to yourself. You can have a home custom designed by expert builders. You can take your boat out whenever you want. You can live near the water, or right on it.

RiverTown, located along the banks of the St. Johns River is home to 10 distinct neighborhoods spanning across 5,000+ acres. The community is centrally located with close proximity to Jacksonville and the historic city of St. Augustine on Florida’s First Coast. St. Johns County boasts the top-rated schools in the State of Florida, incredibly beautiful beaches and great shopping, dining and entertainment. World Golf Village is just minutes away, and a variety of professional sports are a part of the Jacksonville social scene. There are always great concerts, festivals and events on the calendar, and a wide array of cultural venues to experience the history and arts of this dynamic region. The area is also well known for its wealth of top-notch medical facilities.

RiverTown is also home to Riverside, an exclusive neighborhood of custom estate homes located with private docks on the St. Johns River. There are 87 homes to be built within this picturesque waterfront gated neighborhood, with your choice of three accomplished home builders, Andy Reynolds Homes, Tidewater Homes, and Riverside Homes, or the option to select your own preferred builder.

Residents at RiverTown enjoy an impressive array of resort-style amenities. The spectacular RiverClub is located directly on the St. Johns River. An infinity edge pool overlooking the river and a poolside café, family game room, fire pit gathering areas, a pirate themed playground, Amphitheater, and waterfront boardwalk with kayak launch are all included in the expansive campus.  Two additional pools (one with a corkscrew slide), tennis, basketball, soccer and a tot lot are located at the RiverHouse amenity center, which is also home to the community clubhouse, activities director and fitness center.

The Welcome Center is open daily at 90 Lanier Street, St. Johns. There are 11 model homes to tour, including the 5 new NorthLake models with MORE to love. For more information about RiverTown, visit us at our website to see our exemplary amenities and homes. One of our newest neighborhoods, Riverside, is getting tons of attention for offering custom estate homes and private waterfront access. Another popular neighborhood, WaterSong, gives those who are 50+ a chance to enjoy an active lifestyle that never has to slow down. While you’re online, get our free Florida lifestyle magazine to get an up-close glimpse of what life is like on the waterfront. You can also call us at (904) 337-4856 and schedule your tour of RiverTown today.
