Rio Vista is a classic historical Ft. Lauderdale neighborhood with cute 1930’s Spanish bungalows, huge newer waterfront estates, and everything in-between.  It is distinct in that most of the architecture of the newer homes seems to fit in with the older homes very well adding to the overall character of the neighborhood. Its location between downtown and the intercoastal as well as the fact that almost all of the older homes have been beautifully renovated making this a very desirable area to live.

The neighborhood includes a peninsula in-between the New and Tarpon Rivers as well as the Rio Vista Isles stretching out into the intercoastal. Even though the interior of the neighborhood is very quiet with no through traffic, there is an abundance of activity within close proximity. The business district along US-1 to the west has many shops and restaurants within walking distance. There is a major shopping area along SE 17th St. to the south, downtown Ft. Lauderdale and shopping on Las Olas is a short hop over one of the many bridges crossing the New River, and the International Airport is 10 minutes away making this a great location no matter what your tastes.

The waterfront property is divided into three categories: In Rio Vista Isles the only bridge separating you and the open sea is the 17th St. Causeway with its 55’ clearance when it’s closed. It will open upon request anytime at 15 min. intervals if necessary. It takes just 10 minutes to get out to sea. Most lots are double lots with 100’ of waterfront but there are some original lots with only 50’. That means your dockage is only 40’ which may limit some needing more space to park your boat. The canals are quite large averaging around 130’ wide. You can take up 1/3 of the canal including your dock and boat so this area gives you plenty of space for any sized boat. Depth varies from 4-7’ so check the nautical charts for more accurate information on specific canals. There are a dozen or so highly sought-after homes directly on the New River with over 100’ of waterfront each. The river is between 140’ and 165’ wide so this gives plenty of room for the largest of boats but being on the river does have other limitations that the canals don’t since it is governed by the state instead of the city. There are also many homes along the Tarpon river, 60-90’ wide but be careful, there is a fixed bridge at SE 9th St. with an 8’ clearance so only smaller motorboats and kayaks beyond this point.
