River Forest Homes for Sale in Bradenton Florida

River Forest is an exclusive residential community in Bradenton that caters to residents who enjoy a lifestyle of privacy, nature and comfort while staying close to suburban comforts and business centers.  River Forest is a collection of a couple of dozen homes located in an enclave on the banks of the Braden River, not far from the State Road 70 exit of I-75.

Unlike the master residential developments found in Manatee County, the architectural style in River Forest is not uniformly Mediterranean.  Home designers have found more freedom at River Forest, and the result is a mixture of American Craftsman homes combined with Old Florida.  The half-acre home sites are surrounded by trees and immaculate landscaping that add to the privacy and elegance of the neighborhood. Residents are treated to songbirds and other adorable species of Florida wildlife.

Floor plans range from three-bedroom to five-bedroom homes built on 2,785 to 3,586 square feet of living space.  Homeowners tend to hold on their River Forest properties for longer than usual, at least in comparison to the Southwest Florida regional housing market.  One River Forest home sold for $585K in 2011.  Close attention to detail was paid to each home in terms of energy efficiency and hurricane standards.

River Forest enjoy a neighborhood that is enclosed by nature.  A kayak and canoe launch in the community allows exploration of the gentle Braden River.  The community is just a 10-minute drive from downtown Bradenton, a shopping center is five minutes away, and Main Street at Lakewood Ranch offers even more convenience. Golf and tennis opportunities, as well as the Gulf beaches, are never far.

Young residents can attend William H. Bashaw Elementary, Braden River Middle and Braden River High Schools.
